As some of you probably recall there was a post on here a while back (by Nick D I believe) about an article in ITG that discussed how playing trombone can be beneficial to trumpet players. Well, I acquired one last night. Today I got up and decided to try er out. I played pretty hard on it for about ten minutes then decided to pick up my trumpet and play a few notes. Well, it sounded AWFUL!! I could barely make a note. Now, I had just woken up and it usually takes a few hours for my lips to feel right but still, this was ridiculous. It felt like a tiny stopped up toy or something. For those of you who also play trombone, is this normal? I don't want to do anything that will mess up my chops. Thanks!
