    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. :shock: Thank you.

    "Shake"

    Either:
    1- Do a very fast lip trill using the fingering that gives the closest harmonic above the note you're on, or...
    2- Gently and minutely "shake" or wiggle the horn to and from your face. If your embouchure is focused and supported, and the note is well supported by the proper air stream, the "lip trill" or "Shake" will occur naturally.

    The lip trill is preferable as it affords maximum control.

    Yee HAW!
    And what's wrong with a Canadian jail? You would prefer Sherrif Joe's joint out there in the New Mexico sun? complete with pink underwear and no TV?

    :wink:

    I've always put all three valves down and do a lip trill. Just practice, it takes time

    Despite the fact that I can't seem to spell "their are moose" :oops: , Tootsall, I would have to say Bubba, cause I could shoot him and escape. In Canada, the unforgiving climate and carnivorous chipmunks are an ever-present danger lol.... :wink:

    lol sorry man, just lookin' out for myself.... Who's Leigh anyway? Besides... Canada has good qualities too! For example: Lumberjacks, lots of maple syrup, and, if you watch "Fairly Odd Parents" they have the Paper Pusher's Memorial, with the Sacred Silver Pencil Sharpener!
