    Maybe it's just me...but if anything "hurts" after you play, you might be doing it wrong. Sure- I get tired, but are you talking about physical pain? :-o

    Oh, no, I didn't mean hurts like that. I mean the burning sensation from lactic acid accumulation. I guess that wasn't clear. My bad.:D

    As a former student of Carmine Caruso, I recommend his method. Just be sure to find somebody that is familiar with it. He was very specific about how they should be approached and played. There is no "only " way to get endurance. It comes with focused, applied practice. I've been playing lead for a long time and they always helped me. I also have a book out that targets endurance and flexibility. RayAlexander.com. On another note, why is everybody arguing about this? Endurance comes over a period of time. not overnight.

    This thread is showing a remarkable amount of endurance. Basically everything has been said, but not by everybody yet!

    The method used to make this thread so long is exactly what is needed with the trumpet when building endurance: endless repetition!

    Do the long tones really work though? I don't mean to extend it even more, but I think they could be the answer.

    How long of a tone? Are we taking your average long tone, or a really long tone? How many long tones are too many long tones? Do I actually have to play a long tone or is longing for a long tone long enough? If I fail to establish a long tone over a long period wil I get that dreaded Valvsalivia Manuever....oh wait (not too long) that's a different even longer thread....

    For Vulgani, a proper long tone is long enough to take the player (and any lucky listeners) through boredom and into wonderment.

    A good long tone should last as long as it takes to read this thread. I say start your long tone and see how far you can read. I got half way down the first page then finished the first page on my 2nd breath!
