Is it. Thanks for letting me know. Perhaps it would be helpful, then, if you were more specific about what you don't know that you need to know, I or someone else can give you a more specific answer. What are you trying to achieve because your question is pretty open.bass9396 said:Playing a brass instrument is more complex than that.
gary said:Just so you'll know, as a trumpet player, I was the only 9th grader allowed to play in the All-State High School (10th-12th grades) Band, played first trumpet my HS years in my HS school band and the All State Band and All State Orchestra. Was solo horn player at the University of Hawaii and the Tokyo Youth Philharmonic, played in a Lab Band at North Texas as well as other professional experience as a horn and trumpet player. I'm not totally unfamiliar with the complexities of brass playing.
You know what, bass? Please reread my post above. I was merely letting you know that I am familiar with brass pedagogy so you'll know where I'm coming from, and asking you -nicely- if you could be more specific so we can do a better job of helping you out. If your choice of a response is sarcasm, that's not likely the kind of thing that will get you what you really want. It's your choice.bass9396 said:Yeah, I'm not interested in your qualifications. I'm interested in a systematic approach to pedal tones.
Here's one:bass9396 said:Please keep on topic and reply with what was asked for. A SYSTEMATIC approach...
bass9396 said:No. It isn't. I'll say it again. I'm looking for a systematic approach to pedal tones. What has been recommended is not systematic...it's just something to try. BTW - I trust that anyone here is saying something of worth, I never doubted his instructions, but I already did that and I wanted more than that. The post with his qualifications was spoken in an arrogant tone, at best. Please keep on topic and reply with what was asked for. A SYSTEMATIC approach...
Hey Bass9396,bass9396 said:Howdy folks,
Anyone know a good book or site or something for trumpet pedal tones? I need a major workout so don't hold back.
