    I'm talking about flutter tounging, water tounging, rips, falls, anything that could be used to ornament a note I want to know about how and when to use it. Thanks in advance.

    Hold on...

    It sounds like you're talking about jazz effects to color a note. Is that right? If so, it's not an unreasonable question, DG. But maybe posting it in the jazz players section would get a better, more helpful response than just more questions from us.

    Yee HAW!
    But what, precisely, is your question? Are you asking when to do it (ornament)? What to do? How to do whatever? If you rephrase your real question perhaps someone might feel more comfortable attempting to respond.

    Ok, let me narrow the question. Throw out legit music, I am strictly talking jazz. Are there any other manipulations of the tone and articulation that I had not mentioned(ie. Water tounge, flutter tounge, rips up to a note, falls off of a note)? And when during a solo would be a good time to use one of these articulation variants(ie. a long held note such as a whole note or a half note or something shorter like a few quarter notes or a eigth note run)?

    So my precise question is...are there any manipulations I didn't mention and for the ones I did (and didn't) how do you use them and when in an improv. solo would you most likely use them?

    Is that better? ;-)

    Jimmy Maxwell's book" The First Trumpeter" covers all the things you ask about.
    Jimmy was a lead player's lead player.
    A very good book to own!
