Buzz, that's a great list. I making copies....
D Minor is the saddest of all keys!
Not if you play klezmer music. Then D minor is not just a key, it's a way of life.
You can not overblow a trumpet.
This is wrong!
Depending on definition, overblow can mean different things.
The term overblow in terms of the trumpet is the act of playing any tone that is not the fundemental. "Overblowing" takes us to the next partial.
If we use terms of physics, we speak of the state where distortion components become so predominant that the acoustic output no longer increases when additional energy is applied at the mouthpiece. Light, unbraced trumpets reach this state of diminishing returns sooner than heavy, well braced trumpets. This does not make the heavy axes better-only louder! Any strong player can reach this state with any of the trumpets that I am familiar with, regardless of weight.
If we use a literary definition, overblown means exaggerated and that applies more to the amusicality of the player than the physical state of his horn!
Everytime I hear it, I weep instantly! Spinal Tap rules...
