    Hi, I'm new here, and I have a youtube channel where I perform trumpet solos, duets, trios, etc. I would appreciate it if you checked it out and maybe offered some pointers on how I could improve. Here's one video from my channel where I played the "Jurassic Park" main theme as a 9 trumpet multitrack (bass parts were done by playing it up an octave and digitally putting it into the lower octave)

    Keep up the really good work!

    I hate it when you people post these things! I think I'm getting along pretty good with my own learning curve, then one of you, especially you youngsters, has to go and show off reminding me how crummy I really am. I'm having enough trouble knowing that even now I still have trouble with high C (which according to the internet I should have been able to play since high school many, many, many years ago :oops:) when you kids come along with your fancy playin and all that.

    Maybe I need to go out and buy a new horn that will impress people based on my signature? :)-o I wonder if I just found the origin of my N+1 virus?)

    (Seriously though, that was cool :thumbsup:)

    Buying a new horn is always a good substitute for practicing. :cool:

    I forget the official formula. What is it again? Practice time = (current year - year of horn manufacture)*cost?:D

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! And I'm not as young as I look. I'm 24 and out of college, so I can already feel the pressure of not being a professional trumpeter at this point in time haha.

    I like this. You must have had a bit of spare time on your hands though. That is not put together in an hour.

    As far as constructive criticism goes, it is tough because this is a very much edited clip. You have very ably put something worth listening to on the web. What struggles that you may have had, we can only guess.

    I suspect some of the attacks were not optimal due to the multitrack playback. I only keep one ear covered with the headphone so that I have better connection to my own playing. I find that it is easier to breathe naturally instead of last minute which adds tension.
