    All right i see... yes... i understand that there is more to trumpet playing than high notes... however, i think that some one who played SO extensively to the point where they could actually play double d's would be able to show consistency, mainly because playing in the stratosphere is a skill aquired through practice, and not need to go through a change... i said that because i dont think you could ever play double d's, i was being sarcastic, dont get me wrong, part of me said, "maybe this isnt some freshman trumpet player who is just trolling around looking for a rise and wanting to show off while he get answers to his questions like, Quote "Because I don't want to start another high register thread,
    I'll ask my question here.

    Just curious:
    Does anyone ever have it happen where when you're playing in the high range, all of the sudden it seems to drop out, and produce this squeaky, airy tone?" unquote... " but apparently i was wrong because you actually used the word douchebag in you post wtg... tell us when your hitting those double Ds again:D

    oh way to change the post...

    10-90 ...not good. 75-25 doesn't sound good either, but, as far as advice o'er the internet, play what is "comfy". we all have different thumbprints, y'know?

    I just needed to get some anger out. Then I realized it was a very childish post, and so I changed it immediately.

    I really was not joking. I did play those notes. The rest of my playing was suffering. I really didn't come in here expecting to find people giving me such a hard time about something I really didn't even come here to discuss.

    I'm not your average stupid highschool trumpet player.
    I may be a dumb teenager, but music is my life. It's what I wake up and think about. It's what I want to do.

    Yes. I now have trouble with my high register, it's a pain. But I sound a lot better, and it's coming back fast.

    I'm sorry I ever actually posted that angry stuff. I'm just tired of people not believing me...

    I've heard that before, but my trumpet teacher is a master of fundamentals.
    He essentially placed my embouchure, although I adjusted to comfortability, he told me it should be around 75-25.

    I sound better than ever! :-)

    Sounds like BS to me. When I say play, then I mean PLAY. Just squeaking out some stuff without any semblance of music is not playing.

    Just moving the mouthpiece on the lips is also not an embouchure change. This thread is like so many when school lets out. Not one mention of music, just misc. BS.

    I do not worry about the time that you put in. The ridiculous claims about time and range do not impress. Why can't we just deal with the truth. It would probably help more.

    Double D, victim, 5.5 Hours (I guess this is between 3.5 and 8 hours), orchestral, right. :thumbdown:
