Double High C
I've never been to the CF Conference. And doubt I'll ever be invited. Nobody wants to hear from a CF kid that's played trumpet, has a black belt in Aikido, has run 4 full marathons and lived to be a healthy 43. No nearly as exciting as riding a bike 500 miles.
Have fun. If you see Dr. Robert Wilmott tell him I said Hi.
[QUOT The holy grail of notes.[/QUOTE] is DHC Double High C by any chance?
What exactly is the 'phwoo technique'? I always thought sounds was produced by vibrating or buzzing? How can yiu play without it?
Air movement alone causes vibration. It works. It works well. The lip muscles I use in the phwoooo technique directs that forced air against the brass that causes the vibration. Look at all the people that used air compressors to play trumpet notes or the Toyota Robot trumpet player... again... compressed air against metal... THAT is all that is needed, and the less buzzing you do, the less wasted energy there is at getting the brass to vibrate. It works. It works well. FOR ME. THAT is the only way I can make it through a four hour gig with the Eddie Brookshire Quintet.
Say "phwooooo" and while doing so, [and don't buzz] place your lips against the mouthpiece... There you have it; the phwooooo technique.
Is this phwoo business like what Tine Thing Helseth says in this video after confessing that she can't buzz?

She just sort of blows out, and putting the mouthpiece onto her face just shapes her mouth into the sort of "vibrating dam" that's needed to produce the sound? That's still ultimately a "buzz," though ...
See... she's mouthing phwoooo... It's what I call the phwooooo technique. It gives you a very smooth sound and is less fatiguing than the buzz. I absolutely love this method and feel much vindicated in that I am in good company with using this technique.
In good company in technique only, Gary. She'd not stay in the same room as those Baggy Trousers.
