    Personnally I don't CLAIM anything, it's just a matter of "self-appreciation" ! ROFL

    Don't forget! A CLAIM is nothing more than a CLAM with an extra i. :lol:

    You "own" a note when you can play it anytime, soft or loud, in tune, at the beginning of practice/performance, at the end of practice/performance, under extreme pressure, when you don't feel well, and even when it sneaks up on you sight-reading. And for those multiple mouthpiece users, when you can get the note with your Schilke 24 when you usually use a Maynard Jet-tone but forgot to bring it along. And vice-versa.
    You don't own a note when all you can do is squeak it, only get it at certain times, and can't pull it out of nowhere with good tone, pitch, and proper style.
    Even the great players get tired and may miss notes they truly own, but those times are few and far between.
    I have evolved this thought process. If you have a part that has notes you don't "own", give the part to someone who does. If there is no one there you can give the part to, adjust the part. Take it down an octave or find a note that you do "own" that will fit properly.

    It's more okay to go waaaaay off topic if it's your thead, isn't it???

    YES! The bluejay was only in shock and was able to recover and fly away. Another TURTLE SAVE.

    Yep! got the idea from Rowuk a few years ago. I was skeptical at first (is he sending me on a snipe hunt or treasure hunt to find "prop wash")! 10 ft. of 3/8ths flexible clear pvc and you have a Bb-ish hose trumpet. Long tones and bugle-like calls are all I could do at first, but now I can play just about any note. Low notes are more of a problem. The rest are squirrely intonation wise.

    richtom, I am trying to give you rep but TM says I can't. But it can't be said any better than that.
