Thanks TM, for all of the helpful replies. I have registered the piece, so it is expected. I cant wait to work it up! The tonguing is the main concern, though. But either way, all of you help me keep positive when I start to get down on myself.. Sometimes I think too much about it when the answer is very simple. Trumpet players DO tend to think too much eh? Thanks a ton. Like I said before, I will try to keep this thread alive and give updates! Other than that, any practice tips for tonguing excersices would be great! Thanks again, - David, the soon to be Venice OWNER. MY way.
