Do any if you (especially come-backers) have ideas for a plan of attack for getting my chops back after four years off? I know how to read music, remember where all the notes are on the face and under the fingers. I never got fancy on trumpet, could never get very far into Arban. But I could keep up in marching band. I did get quite a bit further in French horn, but that stuff doesn't really carry over. I would like to be good enough to hold my own in third or fourth book in a community band or play melody lines and easier arrangements of jazz standards, as an intermediate goal. I know to work on buzzing, long tones, scales, arpeggios. Anything else I should or should not do besides just play the horn? I've got lots of sheet music that includes vocal melody lines so I can run through those to get "air time." I know the main thing is to just get the horn to my face and play! If it would ever arrive... i hope I'm not asking too many questions. I'm excited and I'm off for the holidays so I have nothing else to do while I wait for the horn to come.
