    I have always enjoyed well played mariachi trumpets/msuic.

    I am wondering if I include some mariachi playing into my practice.....would it help, no difference or am I going to hoop myself?

    Any thoughts? Comments? Winning Lotto numbers?

    You can include anything you so desire in your practice as long as your fundamentals are down pat, you ought not have any problems.

    One of my very good friends here in Fort Worth has been playing with a mariachi band for several years. She said one of the things many groups do when recording is having the trumpets play into a fan to get that special vibrato. Not sure if this will help your practicing...

    In all seriousness, though, a good mariachi player has an incredibly vibrant, resonant sound. You probably want to stay away from practicing that vibrato too much, but adding another tool to your toolbox is always a good thing.

    My vibrato is a weak spot and something I need to work on so maybe this will help.
