    Bob, I guess this is directed at me - I do have a real job - one I've pursued for 39 years, unfortunately it's not playing trumpet. ;-) I trust you like flying 'cos my students are those blokes who maintain and sign for the serviceability of the aircraft in which you fly. I guess you hope I'm better at my real job than I am at trumpet playing - I like to think that that is the case BTW - the travelling public, and all those who live below flight paths, are all in trouble if my work matches my inability with the trumpet. Be that as it may, I try very hard at both pursuits. :cool: (No, I'm not easily offended, be happy).

    Oh b*gger, I think I've taken Bob's post entirely the wrong way - sorry Bob.

    Stop playing the trumpet and start playing music (using a trumpet)
    And to stop thinking so much. (more music)

    To practice.
    Period.


    Wait a minute.............to clarify:
    Get off the PC and get out my horns.





    (and if anyone has a good 30 minute routine that will help me with chops and improv, please PM me. Thanks)

    More interaction with other instruments. (I do well alone, I need to focus on "plays well with others.") Also, improve my discipline in transcribing. I'm taking a kickin'-a music theory class. -Ed

    Be resigned to my deficiencies while still working steadily towards improvement where ever that might be gained. (I know its contradictory. To folks who know, it may make sense)

    To have more fun with the horn, and beat my head against the wall less frequently.

    Dig up a duet buddy.
