    Hi there. I'm Huggy Bear. I like your playing. How do you play all those notes that are right next to eachother like a scale without any valves? I thought the trumpet had to have valves to do that. Everyone on here uses trumpets with valves except you. Are you better? Or, did you just have trouble remembering the fingerings? Huggy can get you a fingering chart if you need.

    Anyway, thanks for the cool clips. I like them....Fo' SHizzle!

    Love,
    Huggy

    Huggy has a Question....

    Why does Mr. Mayfield have his own forum if he doesn't answer peeps questions? :-( I think we should give his forum to Rowuk.....Fo' Shizzle!

    I can make better sounds coming from an other hole. I just have to press REALLY hard! :-o
    I guess this can be considered a "natural trumpet."

    It's all about the clarino octave! The holes only help a little bit with intonation..

    I would love to find out about how to get a natural trumpet to "notch." Knowing this trick might prevent the occasional frack when playing a low g in Brahms.

    "Slotting" is perhaps the more current term, sorry!: that certain knowledge that the right note is going to come out at the right time.
