Schwab, That was a good video. I am not looking for a nit picking review of my playing. Yes, I want feedback on how I can improve but I am not looking for "find a new solo." I want the "critics" of my playing as in, "slow down here, seed up there, and any other non-major thoughts/feed back." I have a teacher to go over this solo with and she is a good one too. We are at the point where I am ready for the solo and make it to State. Rowuk, I am do not in any way want to piss you off. But I did not feel that a comment like: If it was 8 weeks before the festival, maybe. One week before there is no time to fix broken stuff so I won't say anything. No sense spoiling your fun. Is of any use in this thread. Okay, you feel that way about this. Thats fine, but I know the solo and wanted an assessment of my playing by my trumpet playing peers. Not being told that I am asking at the wrong time and that you will have no comment is not what I was looking for. Thank you for your time.
