    Got hold of Arban's Complete Method for Trumpet...
    It's the first tutorial book I've ever tried and I find it very useful.
    For once, I realized that mastering the whole range isn't just about playing a chromatic scales cleanly and hitting that double C (or just about), or practicing only a couple of simple tunes (that's what I was doing before getting the Arban's).
    Some combinations of intervals are trickier than others simply because I'd never tackled them before...
    Most importantly, after a couple of weeks using the Arban's method, I'm playing most of the exercises without checking the fingering chart (about time too).
    Yet, I guess there is a lot of work to do before I can start improvising in the same way I do with the Sax.
