Hi- after not playing since 1971, I picked up (rented) a student trumpet to see what would happen. Low and behold after two days of noise I started to obtain some actual clear notes..Yippee(crosschecked by blowing through a shure 57 into a tuner) Issue - all my fingering for these notes, low A to second C are exactly one pitch above the actual note - so middle c is 1-3 rather than open etc. I played for 2 1/2 yrs in school and I know I used the standard fingerings! what's happening?? any ideas - should I continue along this path for now? do you think as I get stronger things will work themselves out. I do try every session to hit the notes using standard fingerings in the beginning. I will try to get to a teacher for some guidance but it's at least 3 hours round trip to the closest one.
