Now that I've heard about your difficulties, how about the things that have always come easy to you. For me, it would definitely be the mental stuff. I've always been very quick at memorizing music, scales, chords, etc. When I was in high school, my trumpet teacher picked up on this, and told me to memorize all my major scales in one week (which I did.) Then the next week was minor scales (all forms.) By the end of the summer, I had memorized so many different types of scales and modes along with their chords. It's just always been easy for me. The physical part of trumpet playing has always been very hard for me. What about y'all?
