I found this vid one youtube of a guy playing a high note on the trumpet, he listed it as the G above a double high C, but I'm thinking it's the G above the triple high C. YouTube - TRIPLE G!!! This can't be good for your health. Is it a G above a double high C or triple high C, and I think he went to a G sharp. I've heard stories about jazz players going so high, that one of them ruined his lip for good (I'd never forgive myself if I did that) and another about a guy playing so high he punctured his brain and went crazy. I don't think attempting to go that high is a good idea. Anyway, however high that was, I think this guy has a good octive above the previos link: YouTube - Playing high on a trumpet However, I don't know if bugles can go higher than trumpets, this one certainly did. How high would you say the bugle on is? I think it is higher than the trumpet one. Can any of you guys get close to that? That is insane, I never knew a trumpet could go that high.
