    I know who you mean and another with "similar" initials but I'm not sure if it would be prudent! ROFL

    Does "WW" stand for "Wascally Wabbit?" Back in the day, Laurence Morehouse, exercise physiology guru at UCLA did some studies on "warming up" for runners and discovered that some simple stretching did as much as a "warm up." For me, the warm up is more for my head than my chops.

    I believe our Brother Vulgano answered this much better than I ever could. He is a moderator you know... I on the other hand am just a moderate.

    Thanks all!
    Wanted to mention that I've been trying to just hold long tones beginning on line g and going down for the past few days. It works nicely and gets me set up for my normal practice. Wanted to mention I tried the Stamp method of 'bending' notes for about a month. At first I thought it was great but quickly realized for some reason I tired faster and I couldn't firmly hit the higher notes I once was able to hit (for me it's G/G# above the staff). Thanks again and I wanted to mention that sifting through past threads a ton of questions have been answered!

    The Online G is what Cat Anderson recommends as the starting point... so you are in good company.

    I refuse to add to that, on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate me. And that is that.
    I think it would be wise to quit now, while I'm still ahead.

    The G or C below it, I think such is a personal choice. Hunkering in to a piano accompaniment, I'd start my chromatic ascending run on a D most likely.

    I at first thought that WW was for WILEY COYOTE --- but then I realized on another thread that I posted that I get my letters confused.. I confuse G's with C's, and now apparently I confuse my W's with C's. By the way, does anyone know where the Double High W is on the trumpet, it sounds like a C to me!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL
