OK now it's whistling again.....
OK so I put in the *last* whistling thread that I do a sort of quiet, inside the mouth whistling, that's good enough for me, since it's accurate, wide range, and is great for playing stuff to myself. All well and fine.
However, I have heard *some* say that the conventional pucker-up type of whistling is good for trumpet playing, so I've been messing with that, starting last night (after practice). I'm surprised, I'm able to get some very pure tones, kinda hit or miss, and very widely spaced too. But one thing I notice is it sure involves bringing the corners of the mouth in!
I'm going to keep it up, because it's kinda cool. If I can get my "external" whistle as well trained as my "internal" one, I'll be a kick ass whistler if nothing else.
Anyone have any opinions on whistling (mouth alone, no fingers, conventional type) and trumpet playing?
