Hi , I have just joined this forum. I am wondering if some one out there could help me with a small problem. Played my first gig tonight with a band. We practice a few times before with no major problems. Tonight I couldnt hear myself as the speakers in the pub were just to loud and I played more than a few wrong notes as most of the time I was just guessing what was coming out of my trumpet. Felt like being blind or something. I was not using a microphone as I thought that the trumpet would be lound enough. What would you recommend me to do?
