    ROFL Don't mean to be rude or disrespectful, but I just imagined Maynard Ferguson playing this piece. ROFL

    I've found that certain string pieces don't translate well to performance on a trumpet, no matter what I do to try to emulate the style. Maybe this piece is one of them.

    Maybe this might help:
    In order to play a certain style or type (Bach) then a person needs to be steeped in Bach. Have you ever noticed that if you listen to Miles, Maynard, Doc, ect. when you pick up your horn, you kind of sound like them a little? My adive is to listen to Alison Balsom's CD "Bach". Once you get it in your ears, you can begin to replicate it.

    Hi Dale, You said:
    "I've found that certain string pieces don't translate well to performance on a trumpet, no matter what I do to try to emulate the style."
    Ain't that the truth. No matter what I do, I can't make the guitar solo on Freebird sound good on trumpet.
    Just for the heck of it, I learned it years ago because every now and then someone will jokingly yell out "Freebird!!"
    Maybe it's a limitation on my part (highly possible) but it just don't work on trumpet.

    Hi Dale,
    Cool beans on the Stairway. I heard Zappa do it once with brass and it was killer. But I'm a little bias. I think Zappa was one of the greatest.
