I have been reading most of the threads that are posted here, and it has occurred to me that the seems to be an over emphasis on high notes and range.
I have not read here much about lyrical and sweet musical phrasing etc. Can anyone suggest why this so?
The trumpet is a versatile instrument can used from fanfares to ballads.
It has been mentioned to me by an unmusical relative that he couldn't believe how wounder full the trumpet can sound after watching to a tv concert of Chris Bottie
( Excuse the spelling if I got it wrong)
Any rate It would be nice to here from fellow TMs there thoughts on this.
Maybe it has to do the the way modern music is today, High notes and fast riffs up and down the scales have yet made the hairs on back of the next tingle with emotion. Not to say that High Notes and screaming improviser has no place in music, A Melody in the mid range can speak to me more than in the upper register.
Had my say .................Happy New Year to all
