I haven't played with any regularity in some time, as I've been preparing for a move. So my chops basically are non-functional, or so I would have thought.
Today, I was messing around on a tune in E-minor. I noodled my way up to high E, then thought, "heck with it" and went for G and then double-B, and NAILED it! Not a squeaky B, but pretty darned solid and sustained.
The odd part? This was on my Kanstul 1525 flugelhorn! Couldn't believe it, so I did it again, to the same effect. Went and grabbed my CarolBrass 5000, and popped it out on that baby too!
