Hello everyone at Trumpet Master, I have a bit of a problem.
I use to play trumpet (About 5.5 years ago), after playing the trumpet I took up the Tuba because the bad I was in had about 12 trumpets and no Tuba, so I volunteered.
Now I wish to play trumpet again.
My problem is I CAN NOT play the correct notes anymore, I haven't played tuba in over 3 years but for some reason I just can not play the correct notes, I remember all of the fingerings but when I go to tune my trumpet I can not tune to C.
If I use a 7C mouthpiece I am VERY LUCKY if I can get a C# out of it, and if I use a 3C mouthpiece I usually get a A# or B.
It definitely does not help your self esteem not being able to play your favorite instrument but I will NOT give up..
My question is, how can I fix this predicament? Is it me or is it the trumpet I have? I just wish it was as easy as picking it up and playing it again haha
Thank you in advance to everyone that helps
