Veery, I'd of thought you would have sleighed them
I tried it both ways... my wife said the 3rd valve only sounds better because it went higher... and it was easier to go up higher.
We started the ball rolling...But will Nuntaket?
Well, Leroy Anderson's arrangement of Sleigh Ride isn't what I was brought up on. Mine was James Lord Pierpont's Sleigh Ride[/I ] aka Jingle Bells. My rendition focuses on the sound of the harness bells as I create with multibrass horns exclusively. Not sayin' which is better, but young children as have heard mine like it and that is all that matters to me. Too, not sayin' a horse whinny wouldn't enhance my rendition. What I don't believe one would hear on a real sleigh ride is a horse hoof clop like an iron horse shoe hittiing concrete pavement or wooden flooring. Still I might say I've never heard a horse whinny at the end of the ride ... they snort instead clearing their nostrils and then gasp for air. Believe it or not, I've driven a team of horses on a sleigh ride more than once. It's really treacherous in only the moonlight on unpaved and unfamiliar ground.
i have the horse whinny solo in sleigh ride and was is better valve halfway down or harmon mute
lose the harmon mute .... you want it to be heard
I concur, no mute. Haven't done Sleigh Ride in a loooong time,HS to be exact. I didn't get the horse then, but learned the whinney. I keep it in the inventory just in case. I use all three part way down..........Buck
For comic relief, try using a duck call
yo know yo ucould just find a trumpet that has a really and I mean really has a bad valve alignment.. then you won't have to half valve anything ....
