    I messed around with that years ago by putting it in a mouthpiece. Fun, but otherwise useless. :D

    I predict this method will be great for repair techs, who will be called on to remove little squeaky thingamajigs from the 3rd valve slides of many trumpets. ;-)

    Great video.

    And let's give the video's author some cred. He hits a couple nice high D's.

    I suppose if I couldn't play a High G (and High A) the regular way (((by brute force))) -- then I might resort to using this trick. However, since I can "everyday" play a High G, and a High A --- and play them "in tune" --- then I don't need no gimmicks.


    ps. --- this was a very nice trick, and I thoroughly enjoyed the video -- I might let the poor sucker who sits next to me in band in on this, he might feel better about his high notes then --- ROFL ROFL ROFL
