    I played a DHC today, on fresh lips at about Mezzo Forte, sounded OK -- did it on a "Holton Collegiate" as I was testing it, to see if it worked, I plan on giving to a friend who is learning the trumpet, but does not yet have one!!! - ROFL ROFL ROFL

    gmonada, I would come and see you perform - but I am volunteering at a food pantry May 10th. Sometime down the road, you will see me on the road to see you perform. Just have to know your schedule.

    A humbling, but very good book is Top Tones for the Trumpeter, by Walter M. Smith. It contains some very good range exercises at the beginning, then launches into 30 two page etudes that are taxing for musicality, range and chops. After that, pegging notes on a gig are easy!

    Look up Eddiebrookshire.com ( I think that is the site) - I'm to lazy to check for sure - but I blame that on me doubling on the trombone -- I have a dark side ROFL ROFL ROFL

    I believe Eddie's configuration is: B0-E1-A1-D2-G2. His fifth string is tuned to a lower B over the traditional four sting E,A,D,G.
