Hey there everyone. So I've been playing about 8 months now and have been wondering something. Firstly, I am a VERY proficient guitar player. Now it just feels like it's part of my body. I can think a phrase and it just happens without too much work. For me it sort of "clicked" if you will around halfway into my second year playing, I was practicing easily as much as I practice trumpet. Come to think of it, it really happened when I started to play with other people. I can't wait until this happens with trumpet, god knows I'm putting in the hours. My wife is ridiculously understanding and my neighbors are fantastic. I have a great teacher and get frustrated like we all do. But I do know that to really learn an instrument takes dedication, and practice. That being said, I was wondering when your "point of no return" happened to you. Is there a specific moment when the horn stopped fighting you and began talking back? Just curious if other musicians have experienced this phenomenon?
