Hey all, beginner here again. I recently bought a wah mute, partly because my roommates were getting pissed at me playing the trumpet so much, partly because I really like the sound. Anyways, since I've been playing now for about a week and half, my highest consistent note is the D in the upper area of the staff. But it seems like the high notes come out easier on the mute. Also, I know it is true for guitar that it is not recommended to practice too quietly, or in the case of an electric guitar, with distortion because it makes mistakes less noticeable. So basically, the short version is: Does anyone think mostly practicing with a mute is bad?
