    Welcome to the real world, with real live music and no autotune and no overdubbing.

    Sheesh.

    I bet you go your whole life without playing anything perfectly.

    I do not envy anybody playing a herald trumpet (no real bell brace) with a flag attached (blowin in the wind). That waving flag is a PAIN for any embouchure! The player with the cracked last note had the best breath support however! LOUD and CLEAR.

    yourself in the same thread!

    sorry,
    I was at a party yesterday and came home seeing double (after playing double XX of course) and today I click/post double.
    How convenient that my alter ego is at fault..............

    A couple of weeks ago I was at the summer fesival in Stratford, Ontario to see West Side Story. Before the performance there was a brass quintet with a couple of herald trumpets (with the flags) playing in front of the theatre. I expected to hear some pleasant fanfares competently done. Instead I was treated to some really high-class playing, done with verve and excitement. It was really enjoyable to hear good musicians playing at a first rate level even in less than perfect conditions and on less than ideal instruments.
