    Chet,

    for your first question, just use more slide grease and that should solve the problem. I recommend using Schilke slide grease, its the best!

    I am sure that this has been covered somewhere in the TM forums before but here it goes...:

    First try without an instrument. You need to roll or trill your tongue which should produce the continuous sound of rrrrrrrrrrr. Once you get that you can add the trumpet. Try first with some middle register notes, G on the second staff line would be good. To avoid compromising your initial articulation first articulate the note the usual way (tooh, tuo, taa or whatever you use) and then start to flutter. Have fun :play:
