    Ok so this question is going to seem pretty dumb, But i'm trying to learn how to play Chris botti music and there some parts of the music (on the recording) where he makes kinda of like a trill sound with his horn but it's not a trill.. if that makes any since:D But does anyone know how to get that sound out of your trumpet? The song is Italia By the way.

    Thanksss

    I don't know the song or a whole lot about his playing, but could it be a flutter tongue?

    I don't know the piece either but is it a shake?

    If its a flutter tongue the pitch wont change.

    umm... the first on in that video is at 40 seconds.
    but theres bigger ones in the piece as well. in my music theres nothing written but straight eighth notes... so it's kind of confusing me. LOL theres another one at 3:10



    haha just gonna say this im probably having a brain fart at the moment :]

    The first one you mentioned seems to me like a little gliss or a run of Grace notes (Acciacatura)

    OH
    Yeah I think all they are, are just grace notes or a glissando. Like Bagnewauckland said.

    An example is, if you were on a D and had jump up to an A. Then you could sorta glissando your way up there. Ex: D,E,F,G,A.
