    I guess what I am trying to say is that for my experience, I didn’t want to spend a whole lot of time building up my finger technique. I knew that it would increase over time, and I let the time process work. I don’t know why, but I am able to take a long, patient view of events when it comes to trumpet playing; but somehow, I don’t transpose that thought process into the rest of my impatient life!

    You could do either; which ever is the most comfortable. My teacher has mentioned though that when you play upper register exercises you need to watch how much pressure you are applying to the lips; with the pinkie finger in the ring there is a chance for more pressure to be applied. It doesn't necessarily mean that there will be, but it is something to watch out for. I know that when I did Clarke studies on piccolo trumpet that happened sometimes in the beginning of my studies.
