Hello everyone, a couple of weeks ago I went crazy, entered a shop and bought a trumpet.. I love the sound of this instrument. Now, I am trying to learn the basics, but I cannot have a teacher as I live abroad but moving in few months (and I don't speak the local language well..). So, I got to internet to learn as much as I could. I also ordered some educational DVD but still waiting for it to be delivered. What I would like to hear from you, is about your very first experiences with the trumpet. I don't know if I am doing it right, but the sound comes out pretty nice, even if I always have to adjust the intonation after the note is out there... I pretty easily go from lower C to an octave above. Less easily I can go to G above.. Not more than this, but I really don't care about speed and high notes (for the time being...). I have some problems in getting the lower D out.. It's the most problematic note for me now.. I always use my tongue to start notes by hitting right above the upper teeth, also... I don't know... Do you have any comment/advice/raccomandation for someone who has played in total only 3 hours?!?! something to avoid at any cost? Thank you guys!!! I hope I will get to a more advance level pretty soon, bye!!!
