    I looked on YouTube, there's a video of a guy in a wheelchair playing it on the street (to make money) and the version he's playing is nice and long.

    save your bandwidth

    and ours!

    shoot videos in low picture quality, and moderate sound quality

    there is o need for such high resolution. afterall it is sound that matters

    My advice is you dont need the vibrato.
    Hold the phrase to the end.
    A clear SOLID tone.
    Articulate the PHRASE.
    You are speaking a language
    Understand the language in which you choose to speak.

    Id play with you.
    Because you care.

    He's just a beginner and he's pretty good. I like the vibrato just fine. But yeah, he cares. Gotta care.

    Well, not really - from the first day I picked up the horn I could play a full scale from low C to tuning C, and learned how to play "Mary Had a Little Lamb." But I think that I was kind of an exception rather than the rule.

    However, I think it's great that you are making good progress and got through a roadblock that had been hindering you. And I also think you have a pretty solid sound, and that's just as important as any range you might have right now.
