    I think it's only published in paper form.

    10 min? Wow! Last time we talked about that, it was 37 weeks. What will the next one be, 5 seconds?

    If you want to hit high c in 5 seconds start playing and have someone hit your feet with a sledgehammer.

    There are a lot of common sense exercizes in that book even if 10 minutes is BS for most players trying to figure this out without professional help.

    I think that most players with proper guidance can appreciably increase their range in a relatively short period of time. Whether or not they have the brains to put those notes in musical context is a debate for more than 10 minutes.

    I can imagine that in most real music stores in the world, this book would have to be ordered.

    One of the best stocked sheet music stores is:


    I buy almost all of my stuff there.

    i picked this up from the net a few months ago to help with those top notes and found that the method wasnt really for me, i tried it and the warm ups work well to 'set' your chops for the top notes but i didnt find myself adding an octive onto my range by moving my bottom lip in and up, infact i didint really gain any extra notes :S i need to spend more time on it though for it to work i think.....
    although it works well for some people (Nick D and his high low gear) it might not work for others.....

    Hi all,
    Is anyone here have the "Double high C in 37 weeks"
    or Double High C in ten minutes" on a PDF file ?
    I'm not sure that it's suitable for me and i don't want to buy it if it won't fit me.
