All the sudden, maybe five or six months ago my trumpet started giving up. Yeah, I got alot of problems with the trumpet, but now it has affected my chops as well. I've tried this with different trumpets, so now it's my chops that are giving up.
I play in tune on all notes. Except D and Eb in the second octave. (D2, Eb2)...
I play really really flat. The D is just a bit flat and I can adjust it. But the Eb is impossible. More air, trying to bend up.. nothing works. False fingering is the closest I can get. Why is this? Eb is more than a quarter note flat.
Gah.. Anyone else got this problem?
