WOW!! Some of that stuff is unreadable!!
Hay! D' nt Kno wht yu takin bout, I had no troble reeden it.
If it's a death grip that crunches the valves out of shape ...... then Yes, it's probably not good for the sound either. Easy does it with the grip ... it's not trying to get away from you.
Cuz yuze iz ahdoktir ahn stuph lik dat! AAwl hie fulootn andat. Mstre "evireeting ana baggo cheeps"!!
Yah, just think that when you are taking that trumpet into your grasp, that your hand is carressing the delecate waist of a tiny delecate ballarena. You do this, she will not get away from you: The trumpet or the ballarena. She will stay with you as the song dances from your horn.
And she's just like a trumpet ..... you whisper in her ear and she yells it out to the crowd.
I had a 6 hour rehearsal today. L. Bernstein Chichester Psalms and F. Poulenc Gloria. I had my Monette Prana 3 Bb and I tried the grip. I figured with this, my most sensitive horn, if there is a difference, it will be noticeable.
What I tried:
1) 2 finger hold
2) standard hold
3) hold under the slides
4) heavy standard grip
5) no grip - only right hand
Difference: NONE. This program has high and low, loud and soft, heavenly clouds to flamethrowers. It all worked the same. No clams or train wrecks
Perhaps I should have taken my Bach C instead? I'll never know because this rehearsal closed the book for a reasonably well trained player that practices an average of 2 hours a day.
Maybe weaker players will notice more differences? I doubt it. Players with less time in have general issues with consistency not related to the "grip".
My standard grip is pretty loose though.
You forgot the heavy 4 finger death grip!! Great post as usual!
You haven't heard me on a bad day
