    Hello

    So I recorded myself just out of curiosity, and it's a good way to know what the first things are too work on (I have a lot to do :p)
    It's not something special that I play, it's my first improvisation in the blues scale which I changed a bit.

    Feedback is always useful :lol:

    You sound like that after one month??? Wow. I was still attracting herd animals and scaring geese after one month on the trumpet. Yeah, good job. Do you have a teacher?

    Oh, yes I know that it's not very good... Articulation, tone etc. isn't that good yet

    Great! You should do well on trumpet .... the mechanics are easy to teach but a nice musicality is not something everyone is able to bring to lessons. Record yourself often and you'll advance faster IMO.

    You have been playing for a month??????? I knew some high school players way back when the dinosaurs were here that could not play as well as that in 4 years of playing.


    You have a ways to go young padawan, but you and your teacher will do great things.

    Best of luck,
    Al

    Little known fact, dinosaurs were here 30ish years ago ;-)

    Okay, listened to it again and just one thing I wanted to point out. Just look at the sound clip, you can see where you start the note and then the next note. You can see how the sound waves go way down after you tongue the note. Try to go easier on the attack, nice and smooth. Then you will be playing smooth jazz.
