Hi Manny! I'm about 6 months into my "comeback". I've spent countless hours pondering trumpet playing, both currently and in my former life, and I've come to the conclusion that I think too much. I've questioned my horn, my mouthpiece(s), my mouthpiece placement, etc. I've even considered trying one of those "alphabet" trumpet methods. All of this thinking has often lead to "paralysis by analysis." I've done this since my college days. The best advice I was ever given was "Your body knows how to play the trumpet, so just put it (the horn) up and play". I'm not advocating that we give up on lessons or quit trying to improve, but I think this good advice for the player who overthinks - and I "think" there are many of us. Any thoughts? Jamie PS. I'll post my "bio" soon.
