    Is that a German word? Improve listening skills check. Eventually I want to be able to listen to Wynton, and say man he is really over-blowing that tone.

    Nope, adequatitus is not a german word. It is a rowuk word and means only giving a crap enough to get by.............. In my presence, it is a lethal character trait.

    Somehow, after awhile, the ‘light bulb’ does seem to go off. I try to keep careful logs of my practice sessions. I log tempos, material practiced, times, etc. I also make notes of things I need to be concerned about, or directions I need to head in. Looking back over the logs, I can really see progress over a period of time. It is very encouraging!

    a clam is a smelly note that sounds like you played it underwater --- it just kind of clams up a bit, and the sound doesn't come out very well --- and that is the trumpet's fault mostly -- but it gets blamed on the player.
    uhhh - NO -- I don't need a "shrink" to psychoanalyze my grey matter and how it functions --- ROFL ROFL ROFL
