    The pencils most people think "work the best" are the yellow ones. No scientific evidence to back that up. It's just in people's heads from early school days........Hence, yes, I agree.

    And if you jump around in your bare feet on floor full of thumb tacks, you may get some pretty high notes without a trumpet, and in less time than 2.5 minutes.

    If you think that trumpet players are open to suggestion and apt to turn to gadgets to help their playing you must not be a golfer. If playing golf and reading the ads in golf magazines has taught me anything it is this: Somewhere, right now, someone is trying your method for increasing their range--and others are waiting for you to put it on sale so they can buy it. Who knows, maybe you could get a late night infomercial on television and ultimately afford to buy a Monette trumpet. And we all know that's the magic wand that produces amazing range, clean articulation, rich tone and instant admiration.

    I'm working on a potion to improve jazz improvisation, but gmonady is reluctant to supply some of the ingredients.

    And then Arturo picks up one of those $250 plastic trumpets and sounds like...Arturo.

    ... and its amazing that after all the oral, throat, and other pulmonary maladies we had in our youth, mostly as can be attributed to unsanitary things we stuck in our mouth and sat at a school desk that had as many as 25 others sat at in a day without a sani-wipe between, that we still persist in playing these brass instruments ... and are now able to.

    I work strictly on a professional basis... Schedule with my clinic, and no longer will you be my cynick.

    Just think:
    You schedule the appointment... You get my magic ointment!
    If you pass me by... You won't get high!
