    I think it's Glenn telling his students

    "You Shall Not Pass!"

    It is the most heart-stopping moment in the book and movie for me.

    PH - Ian Anderson? Ha! (I am a big Tull fan)

    Manny,

    Great choice of words! I love it when ideas coincide exactly...

    I'm with PH. I thought that was Ian Anderson. Yikes! What a double take.

    Many who play Bach mouthpieces like the 24 throat and the 24 backbore on the C trumpet while using the stock set-up on the Bb.

    Ya know...neither the man in the red suit or my financial advisor can be convinced of that thought. Maybe I could start busking a bit for one! Donations gladly accepted. Please make checks payable to "Glenn's Lawler C fund!" :D

    Hello all.
    I think all of the advice given so far has been very good. In light of that, I think this might help as well...
    If you're playing a Bach C trumpet, you're probably playing E 1&2 and Eb 2&3. Trying slightly lowering the pitch center of those notes (and F and C#) with the first and third slides. I find that the articulation and sound tend to be happier there. That ALONG with everyone elses advice should do the trick.
