    Tell you what, Tom...

    I'll be in Edinburgh next August, '06. You can buy me a wee bit 'o somethin' lively then, if you feel that bad about it.

    Until then,

    OCH, I see now that I have completely and utterly misunderstood this excercise and must apologise for wasting your time with this. :oops: I was putting 1st & 3rd slides out fully then playing F major scale with the fingering for F sharp major! B flat is the only note that wouldn't work without lipping. Suddenly everything became clear! Sorry.

    Tom,

    Apparently you started the party without me.

    Farnham (a place too smal
    He lives in Glasgow - he would have started the party many years ago - the water of life is given out long before a mouthpiece would have been :D

    Tom,

    I checked a map and it's about 50 miles! If you actually showed up it would be my pleasure to buy after a trip like that for a concert. When I was last in the Glasgow with the band, I scored a bottle of Glenmorangie at the airport. It's delicious and sets well with a fine warmth.

    My limited times in Scotland were most enjoyable and I look forward to our visit next year.

    Ah perhaps that is what prevented me from reading the posts properly! In fact I was given my first mouthpiece aged 8. I didn't start drinking till at least 10 or 11! :lol: Of course Mr Laureano I actually do most of my gigs in Edinburgh I'm there every other day or so. The festival will be on when you are there, we should definately hook up for a chat if you have time.

    Hi Manny Carmen is getting pretty easy and for various semi lame excuses I 've only done it 5or 6 x in the 3 weeks. 3 of those times were on the peashooter mouthpiece.

    Ok... I know this is an old topic...but I wanted to let you know, Manny, that I tried the Carmen today, on the second day of trying the excercise.

    Right off the bat, I noticed greater response and fullness of tone on the low notes...particularly the played Gb in the 6th measure. This is a big deal for me, as anything below A usually sounds like a duck having a tantrum.

    My main difficulty is getting the played low F to sound in tune, rather than as a flat Gb. I assume that will come as I get used to the slide positioning and playing that most uncommon pitch.[/i]
