Oh b*gger, I think I've taken Bob's post entirely the wrong way - sorry Bob.
Stop playing the trumpet and start playing music (using a trumpet)
And to stop thinking so much. (more music)
Bb: Courtois 305 "Elite", Holton Al Hirt Special (~1966), Benge 3x with Upturned bell (1973)
C: Bach C180-239 (Akwright conversion),
Cornet: Conn Wonder (1900)
Picc: Selmer Paris, ~1971
Wait a minute.............to clarify:
Get off the PC and get out my horns.
(and if anyone has a good 30 minute routine that will help me with chops and improv, please PM me. Thanks)
More interaction with other instruments. (I do well alone, I need to focus on "plays well with others.") Also, improve my discipline in transcribing. I'm taking a kickin'-a music theory class. -Ed
Be resigned to my deficiencies while still working steadily towards improvement where ever that might be gained. (I know its contradictory. To folks who know, it may make sense)
To have more fun with the horn, and beat my head against the wall less frequently.
Dig up a duet buddy.
