I have played trumpet for 2-3 months now total in my entire life. I played guitar all my life and never played a blowing instrument before. I have achieved playing from the low B (low A on and off) up to the F (top of staff). G above the staff I managed to hit but its kinda yay/nay. Im pretty happy with that achievement in 3 months. I must say I have enjoyed trumpet playing since day one and every day It gets better and better as I can do more and play more difficult things. It is the best instrument on the planet and I wish I had not played guitar for 15 years but the trumpet... anyways now i gotta redeem the time.
