Was wondering if you can advise. I played the trumpet for a couple of years when I was a young teen. Due to the "I can't be bothered" teen phase, I stopped playing. Since my 20s every time I would hear a trumpet in music I would think "I could be playing that". Anyway at 42 I decided to learn again, so I have bought a trumpet. I'm not interested in playing professionally, just for fun. So I decided to learn myself, I ordered some books and this is my problem. I was surprised to see the exactly same tunes that I started to learn 30 years ago. I don't want to learn "when the saints go marching in" or "twinkle twinkle little star", or a number of other religious old fashioned songs. Does any of you know of any beginners songs that are more modern, or jazz,blue, pop based? Even classical would be fine, just not old fashioned religious tunes that just are not for me. If you have any ideas I would be grateful.
