No apologies, I was suggesting the same thing...you don't have to omit it...but it's too much in that recording...it actually becomes distracting a bit.I don't normally comment on reverb because I'm in the minority on this one. But......I think a little reverb helps. Maybe you could back yours off a little, but I wouldn't give it up altogether. (Sorry, Jaye).
Player to a point, but if you find you are sharp all over the place, and a change in m'piece makes the problem recede, keep looking. Small-chamber Meyer ? Which one would that have been ?horn is a 30m conn, really nice horn. i was playing a small chamber meyer mouthpiece, and always had to pull it out so much, and still sharp, have switched to an otto link it seems to help out a little, more likely the player than the mouthpiece, any tips about controlling sharpness would be appreciated
Doh! Know what I mean, not what I say! I meant 10M, but good catch! I feel like a boob.If he can get that sound from a Baritone...the guy is special, indeed.....:|
BTW, Cup.....in 5 years.... this is your 7th post.....
....do come back sooner than 10 months, eh ?
Jams I've been to here, are a compromise between what you experience Wade, aand what you experience Jays. A little bit of both here.Jam sessions must be a lot different where you guys live. Nobody "calls tunes" here and it's never about standards. You've got to be able to play anything with anyone. Usually led by someone who plays keyboards or guitar as they lay down the chords and rhythm. Often they are trying out new ideas/tunes of their own. Other times just using known progressions.
Cup33, if you know who you are going to jam with then you should be able to be ready. If not standards, and you can't "call" a tune you know, then you've got to have ears to figure out what's happening so that you can contribute. A good practice for this is to put on random radio stations (rock, classical, jazz, etc.) and see if you can play along. No challenge, no growth.
Best of luck.
