    your doing something wrong then ----- I had a DHC withing 2 years after I came back to the trumpet, after a decade off!!!! ----- and now I have a consistent high G (octave above the one on top of the staff) ----- played up to a DHC last night!!!!! ((( of course, to play it consistently, everyday, and on command, and in tune, and with the correct intonation, and the correct rhythm)))) ---- well, let me stick with my first line ----- if you ain't got no Double High C, YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG!!!!! ------ or getting less frustrated than us peeps trying to make it REAL, ALL THE TIME ----- ROFL ROFL ROFL

    Amen! It takes time...lots of time. I'm in your boat: I don't have as much time to practice as I'd like; but luckily, I don't play for a living, 'cuz I'd be broke! ;-)

    Well there you go - I know even less about intellectual property law than I do about the mysteries of blowing high notes.

    Clearly I should've enrolled in Music Business rather than performance :oops:

    And I should have kept playing the trumpet rather than pursuing sports! :oops:

    It is said that with age comes wisdom (perhaps sometime), I will turn 75 in a couple of weeks and have decided to let the younger guys like kt to do the screaming double C. I am happy with my range, it is sufficient for the groups I play in. If I can maintain my current level for another 15 years I will be more than happy.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Lol - we are all obsessed with playing high, but I have an awesome tone on the low notes :oops:!!!! In saying that the high notes are coming (very very slowly but they are - not always with good tone and intonation - but they can be heard!) Meanwhile I'll take comfort in my awesome low register!!!

    I need to work on my low register more. I think it's more important than the high for most things.
