This is a plea for assistance.... :!: I will go utterly mad if i don't learn how to put a "shake" on notes. I have been trying for a while, using the scanty, barely-there tip from "Mel Bay's Complete Jazz Trumpet Book", the net, and even an Esential Elements book. :mrgreen: I just can't seem to get it. So, to stop rambling, I NEED YOUR HELP!!!! please tell me how to do this small thing, and you will have stoped me going insane, killing many people (15 1/2 to be exact), and being incarcerated in a Canadian jail. Thank you.
