    I had an orchestra rehearsal last night. Tchaikowskys 6th symphony has many E#s in the first trumpet part - first movement for trumpet in Bb making the E# a concert Eb! ;-)

    Jimba, who wiped out your E#s?

    In order to have a scale named after a note, that scale may not have double sharps or double flats. Otherwise, composers would start writing pieces in keys like B##, forcing us to practice way too much, and we would lose valuable time better spent exploring the trumpet's upper register.

    Thus disallowing us to scream say an B## scale :D

    Well, yeah, since we're maybe killing brain cells with every high note and having to think at the same time might just do us in! I've never heard of any epic chess battles amongst lead trumpeters--has anyone?
