Thanks very much, it's an honor, and I'm off you have a look at your World!
Is this the great Vinny DiMartino?
No, I'm fatter than Vinnie.
I don't play much anymore, not because I don't love it, but because I own my business and don't have much time these days. I played solid for 34 years, met many trumpet players.
One thing for sure, every one of them had their own distinct sound, phrasing, attack, vibrato, on and on.
I knew guys that spent hours practicing and thousands of dollars on mouth pieces and horns trying to sound different, play higher, play more mellow.
Funny thing is, I could always say,,,,there's ole so and so playing his new Bach, or trying his new custom, made for him MP.
He could not change himself.
If you already have a great sound, or even a good one, build on it from there.
The only thing that might change your sound is if you don't already breath properly.
Breathing correctly WILL make a huge difference.
A trumpet is a brass instrument played with a focused airflow.
