What is the allure of this instrument? I'm trying to figure it out. I decided recently I wanted to play an instrument. I gravitated to the trumpet but couldn't get a sound out of it at all even after a one hour lesson. I literally couldn't get a peep. so I gave up and moved to the sax. After playing it for a month or so and having success with it, I mentioned in passing that I was a saxophonist because I failed with the trumpet. They suggested I simply play off center since I have a cupid's bow. I tried this and was able to get some awful sounding squawks that sounded horn like and have been working on these squawks to get them to sound more trumpetty. The rational part of me knows I should be playing the sax. I was having success. I could play Ode to Joy and Twinkle, Twinkle little star with the best of them. I was mastering the octave key and working on learning a couple of scales. On the trumpet I can't even get a note out right now. Yet I plan to sell the sax and stick with the trumpet. Why? Why does a small horn have such a grip on me that it makes me do such a silly thing? Should I wise up and stick with what works and not what might work?
