    Many of you know my primary instrument in trombone. I do double on trumpet (usually 2nd or 3rd in church, etc.)

    But wow, if you have broadband, you got to listen to this guy. He does what I cannot even imagine.

    God bless the F-trigger that allows him to do that! That is really kool.


    The hottest thing I have done that is similar is playing 2 trumpet at the same time (same parts... now enough concentration to play a duet on my own). I had two trumpet (both with the worst embouchure you can have) one on each side left/right and I played Wipe out! Was really kool..... sound wasn't his best of course.... but was nice to try!

    I showed it to my wife last night (UCLA music grad BTW) and she asked, "How does he do that without moving the slide" -- of course the F-attachment makes it possible. You get above concert Bb (high C for you trumpet players) most of the notes can be played with the trigger.

    He did move the slide a bit when playing some of the low tones -- even a few pedal tones. Geez, he is pretty good with the trumpet by itself. Add the trombone and it is amazing.
