So this is random but for the Longhorn Band, I made a pie chart of the sheer amount of first valve fingerings for Texas Fight for Trumpet 1. I have the data on a video but reddit won’t let me attach a picture and a video on the same post.

Is there a chart for the actual concert pitch fingerings of a Bb trumpet?

As I understand, when a part for a trumpet is written, It's written in C. I understand the reason for that, but wouldn't it make sense for each individually keyed trumpet to have it's own fingering? I can't seem to find any chart like that though.

[Question] Is there a "Fingering Chart" (much in the way of a trumpet) that shows the tab for all the notes up the staff and their "alternate fingerings"?

Learned trumpet first, so I visualize music on a staff and cannot for the life of me learn where and what the notes are.

Long Long Way To Go: #16 Five - Tony Banks

Released in 2018

Full album here

I'm sure I won't ruffle any feathers when I say that Tony Banks was the best composer in Genesis. Not only did he write more for the group than any other member, but his songs were always amongst the group's grandest and most explorative. "Firth of Fifth", "The Lamia", "Mad Man Moon", "One For The Vine", "Burning Rope", "Cul-De-Sac" - I mean the list goes on and on. Tony's expansive arrangements and wondrous chord sequences are one of the main reasons I love Genesis so much, and he truly was the heart of the band.

His solo career started out equally striking with A Curious Feeling, but after that album's meager sales, he took off his prog cape, in favor of writing more accessible music - always in search of a hit single. Due to this pursuit of success, his adventurous spirit had largely died out when it came to his solo work, but traces of his progressive roots would occasionally rise to the surface ("Another Murder of a Day", "An Island In The Darkness").

And after the failure of Strictly Inc., Mr Banks turned towards orchestral music. With Seven, Tony no longer had to worry about the conformity and pressure that came with writing pop music, and was free to make his songs as long and complex as he wanted! However, the transition from pop to classical wasn't as easy as Tony had thought it would be. He was really entering into an entire different world of music, and had to learn all of the genre's rules, regulations, and expectations from scratch. Additionally, his unfamiliarity meant that he had very little control over the orchestral arrangements, and was rather displeased with how some of the orchestration on Seven turned out.

Six came along eight years later and would prove to be a large step forward. Everything about it was more focused, as Tony had played a greater role in the album's production, while also working with a much more efficient orchestra. Six had plenty of great pieces, but it sometimes felt like Tony was mainly fixated on trying to fit in with his classical contemporaries, rather than make something completely true to himself. But with Five we get just that. After decades, Tony's spirit of adventure is finally (fully) rekindled, writing some of the best pieces in his entire career, that ooze with a Genesis kind of sound. It may be fully orchestral, but Tony's distinct chords and expert talent o

Emrys’ Concourse

Magical London

We exited into a modern for the times looking street. Along the paved gaslight streets, there were storefront signs advertising cauldrons and familiars. Potion regents and books. Other shops and signs advertising rejuvenation potions and age reversal. Carts filled the air with the smell of different food. Their owners called out their wares.

I stepped closer to Bethany. I disliked crowds on principle.

β€œStephen, I’ll show you how to break your glamor later. We’ll keep it on until we get to Emrys proper.” She said.

Other carts still advertised magical amulets. Everything was painted in brilliant vibrant colors, and I could feel the magic pouring off the streets. Bathing me in power and sending a tingle across my skin.

There was even some type of rail station at the far end where a long line of bored looking commuters stood attired in suits and dresses. Each holding a briefcase or bag. I was quickly discovering that mages had a certain look about them. An inner glow that paled their skin. Hair every shade of the rainbow from using their magic, and eyes glowing with power, almost like a cat in the dark. I noticed that there were a couple in the crowd holding long canes that glowed from the runes along their length. Each of them held the leash of some small type of animal.

β€œHow does this exist?” I asked in wonder. This should have just been a courtyard. Not a massive sprawling street filled with life.

β€œA combination of spatial expansion and compression spells along with a spatial manipulation spell that puts us out of phase with the mortal world. Essentially, The Concourse exists inside a pocket of nonlocal space-time. Space-time that has been torn from another universe and situated inside localized space time. Usually, this is a blank space, although things have been known to grow in black space-time.”

β€œWhat? What does out of phase mean?” I asked. I was still stuck on the fact that there was a street where a courtyard should be.

β€œIn short, the runic relay removes us from reality.” I gave her an inquisitive look.

β€œI’m still stuck on how this place exists.” I said, and she sighed. β€œThe concourse is anchored to a section of reality located on the confluence of two ley lines. It’s a separate reality from our own, that has be

Hal Leonard’s Bass Method or Study Bass?

So after much deliberation I decided it was time to learn to play bass. I learned to play trumpet as a kid and in the time between then and now I taught myself to play drums, although only recently started learning to read sheet music for drums.

So now I’ve got my bass, and I’m all tuned up and working through Study Bass and it’s going well all the way up to the roots and fifths lesson and octaves, at that point the learning curve got really steep. I don’t know where the notes on the fretboard are yet but I have learned a few of them. So I decided to go back further and got the complete edition of Hal Leonard’s Bass Method. Essential Elements was the book series that taught me to play trumpet moderately well so I figured why not.

My question is should I work through Bass Method until I have a better grasp of finding notes on the fretboard or just go through Study Bass really slowly and look up each note on my little fretboard chart until I get the hang of it. I want to be able to read sheet music and not just play through tabs.

I also have trouble landing my ring finger on the A string consistently when playing the G string but I assume that will come with practice.

Any and all help is appreciated.

Can we please stop recommending the Arbans for beginners?

See title. For people who are NEW at trumpet (haven't played for more than a year or two), please don't recommend the Arbans book. It's a great study book for intermediate to advancing players (high school to college level), but for people just learning the instrument, the Arbans doesn't offer much. Sure, it has first studies, but it's dry, and has issues such as a fourth line D in the first exercise, and then it gets really challenging really quickly. Also, not much music there that a beginner can play (first solo melody has Scotch snaps, turns, triplets, and a G above the staff.

i_8's Recommended Books for Beginners:

  1. Raw Beginner: David Hickman's 100 Progressive Lessons for Trumpet. This book teaches fundamentals, technique, and has melodies that are fun to play. It advances at a good pace and follows a good, logical progression for TRUMPET players (more on this later).
  2. Raw Beginner: Sigmund Hering's Trumpet Course (book 1). I find this book pretty dated and boring, but it starts trumpet players from day 1 and develops the right things.
  3. Raw beginner: Rubank Elementary Method for Cornet and Trumpet. Same as the Sigmund Hering. Also it's available for free on IMSLP.
  4. Beginner: Robert Getchell's First Book of Practical Studies for Cornet and Trumpet. This book has a good, logical progression for trumpet players. The melodies are simple and fun to play. It's CHEAP (under $10). The only concern I have is that there aren't a lot of technical studies - just melodies, and you'll need a fingering chart to go along with it. Range is a small concern - the first study goes up to 3rd space C but it's manageable with help.

I don't recommend full band method books like Standard of Excellence or Essential Elements. While these books are OK, and you will learn to play from them, they're FULL BAND method books as opposed to TRUMPET method books. Their progression of skills is not always logical for trumpet players, and they are missing lots of studies and exercises that are useful for developing trumpet skills.

From the above list, I would recommend the Hickman and the Getchell - get both and you'll have lots of stuff to work with and learn.

Why I Can't Watch Britcoms-Part 3

I've been doing a little " research" , giving the benefit of the doubt and assuming some of these other stories are true , it seems I got the short end of the stick in regards to paranormal friends as a kid.

I see a lot of adventure, a lot of kids being hero's , me? I started drinking and getting depressed. Not exactly " the monster squad.".

Don't blame my parents, and please don't blame the normal but off the wall television I watched. It was just the only thing I could think of to get a nights sleep here and there.

My parents were not against booze so much as disinterested in it. For those of you that don't know, yes alcohol can expire, and these past their prime examples of that were what I started my long love affair with alcohol with.

The third week my research slows down to a crawl. I'm nursing combination hangovers and stomach bleeds, and it's all I can do to keep up appearances and stay coherent for 4 hours with my tutor.

For those of you that started your ethanol experiences at a more reasonable age let me tell you , 12 year old drunk is a mean angry drunk. Your hormones are already putting your brain into practically an idiotic state, throwing a gut full of booze on top of that , creates some dark thoughts.

In addition to obscure English television, I was a kid of the 90s, I grew up with the A-team, Ash Williams, Frank Nada, and the whole Phantasm crew. So when my mind went to use of force, I got creative.

Not too creative mind you, we have discussed how I wasn't exactly a child genius. I found a copy of the jolly Roger cookbook online. For those that do not know, it was a cobbled together mess that claimed a series of recipes for devices of civil disobedience. In reality it was missing key parts, made as an art project, and later severely disavowed by the author.

I won't tell you which ones ( do not try anything you read in the book. You are better armed with a frying pan than something that is going to tear off your own hand. ) but I made up 3 explosives and decided that employing them was the only way out of my current situation.

Booze puts you out but it doesn't let you rest. This goes triple if you start before you can get into an R rated movie. By the time Saturday rolled around, I was a miserable semi functional wreck.

I put on a pair of safety goggles, work gloves, and an old leather jacket I'd found and kneeled on the floor of our kitchen.

The hour before I heard the knock went by with a surreal slowness. My eyes

The common man's review of Chromecast with google tv

So, I have owned a Chromecast with Google TV (CCGTV or CCwGTV) now for close to a month now and I am ready to give a real user's opinion. I have seen too many reviews on people blinded about the CCwTV Koolaid awesomeness and not enough real truth.

First off I will tell you this, I have replaced all my streaming devices in my house with this device and yes it is that good. That isn't a Koolaid opinion either. I love the interface or UI. Simply put, the bang-for-the-buck value of the CCGTV is off the charts. ATMOS plus Vision is great and it works with Netflix and Amazon Prime, this was my main reason for wanting a device outside of Nividia shield and apple TV. My Roku didn't deliver this and they were always quick to point the finger at Netflix, but yet their newest versions of the device coming up will support DDvision and Atmos, this just screams to me "we want you to spend more money" cooperate greed and environmental electronic waste.

A nice surprise for me and my favorite thing is the watchlist CCGTV has. Think Lord of The Rings, "One ring to rule them all." I am finding myself when I am bored at times going into my watchlists in my individual services and slowly merging them over with Google's. The only shortcoming I can see about the watchlist is that google doesn't provide a break down by genre that I can see. I could be wrong and I hope I am wrong so if anyone knows if there is a way then leave me a comment about this.

The biggest surprise for me was the upscaling function of the CCwGTV. I own a lot of 1080 Vudu content. My kids wanted to watch "A Knight's Tale" one day and I put in left the room I came back and I was like man that pic looks funny but in an awesome kind-of-way funny. I hit info on my remote and it was like I just tasted the most epic piece of bacon ever. On my info box on my tv, it said 2160 (4k). I have never seen that before since I have long retired my Bluray players. I am a PC gamer so no consoles either. Needless to say, like any good father would have done, I interrupted my kids' movie and pulled up other movies I knew wasn't 4k and sure enough, I was like heck yeah. Then I was like, hold up my Roku never did this. I went and retrieved the only Roku streaming 4k stick+ I had left in the house after the eBay purge. Hooked it back up and fired up the same movie. Cue the whomp whomp whomp trumpet music, 1080p. I know upscale isn't as glorious as real 4k but man I have anime that is 720p that is upsc

Of Oaths

Trumpets sounded, seven long notes, high and true, heralding the return of the master of White Harbor. The gates of the city were already open, for such was how cities worked, but Manfred was certain that the portcullis of New Castle was being raised, her great drawbridge lowered, and standard bearers would even now be mustering, unfurling pennons and paying obeisance to their returning lord by lining the boulevard.

It was an ostentatious display of power, to have so many men spring into motion merely because you'd arrived, but such was the way of things. These displays of power served to remind people of what was at stake, of who was present, and how important it all was. Manfred was not some distant lordling arriving to fret away his coin purse with the city's vices -- he was a man who held sway over life and death for tens of thousands of souls, a man who would shortly lead thousands of his people to war.

It was a heady feeling. Though he knew his father would frown, Manfred enjoyed it. Runcel had taken after the White Lion; Manfred had instead taken after his grandfather. The thought of his brother soured the moment; there were rumors now slowly reaching his ears of some mad zealot with the same name running around Essos, but Manfred paid it no heed. He did not get his hopes up. It was better to assume his kin lost to him.

He could do nothing for his brother, dead on the shores of the White Knife or drowned beneath it, but he could do something for his kin. He faced tumultuous waters now and would have to learn to navigate them. And it remained to be seen what the Arryns would do.

After meeting with his eldest son, whom he felt had discharged his duties admirably, Manfred turned to writing a letter to Isembard. With that done, he had business with his kin. He called them to attend upon him in the War Room.

The War Room was an affectation of his grandfather. He had insisted upon its inclusion as a dedicated space when New Castle was built, and so the masons had seen it done. The room was bedecked in martial trappings, from the pennons and banners adorning the walls to the sea green Manderly shields atop crossed swords hanging from the doors. Spears sat in racks along the wall, their heads covered in leather sheathes to stave off rust. The only concession to grim practicality was the furniture. Robust chairs and stools surrounded a table, the top of which was painted in a raven's eye view of the city and its environs.

But while most might

Does this book exist? I'm an old fellow learning the flugelhorn. I could benifit from a book of scales with diagrams for finger placement and note names. I cannot tell what Amazon has because none that I saw showed a page from the inside. Any suggestions?

Thank you for your responses. I'm sure you mean well. I do know that trumpets, cornets, and flugelhorns are the same length differing on where the tapering starts. That's why I didn't ask that. My music stand doesn't hold both a book and a fingerings chart at the same time so I keep shuffling them. If a chart had all three (with the name of the Note) then I could focus through my bifocals at just one page. I could make it myself but any mistakes would remain in my practice.

>Shadow of Tyre Ep. 11 (Written by RoyalCaster)

While the party is still in the tapestry, Raost reappears revealing what had happened to him. He opens his mouth and speaks Sylvan unable to form words in common, until his mind settles, he explains that he had made a pact with Omen, and with that he voided his pact with Babylon. Suddenly, a voice booms from the shadows. A servant of Omen; he adds that Raost is in fact also a servant of Omen and that he is here to ensure that Raost keeps his word by enacting as Omen’s β€œmouthpiece” by overseeing whatever Omen decides to assign Raost. He then goes to continue to inform Raost and Eustace Babylon’s wolves are coming, and without any additional power granted to them by Omen due to how little reach Omen has in this world the servant offers up a chance at power by taking his Demon’s blood, but at the cost of Raost’s emotions. Raost looks to his party and Moe suggests that he thinks the cost is too high. Raost takes that too heart and declines the servant’s offer. The servant accepts his decision and informs them that the wolves are here.

While that exchange was happening Ahst decides to roll up the tapestry on the ground and pocket it. After the servant disappears Ahst tries to read the tapestry only to discover its in a form of Sylvan that she can’t understand. Thinking about what had recently happened to Raost she asks if he can read and they find out that he can. The tapestry was a page of the Codex containing the arcane formula and mathematical equation in order to transit themselves towards Ori. Ahst points out that she is on the tapestry and notes that Belanovan and some other guardian is featured

Moe snaps the group back onto the pressing issue that the wolves are near. They decide to at least choose where to face the wrath of Babylon, and they settle in the same room where they fought the Violet Cinderous Champion. Raost and Eustace stand in the middle of the room, and let the rest of the party hide. A black ichorous pentagram spawns three warriors. The battle takes place; during the battle Ahst taps in to her Blade of Vibrato, and unlocks a new ability allowing her to clone herself when she lands a critical. Eus

A really insightful and candid New York article | Mariah, You don't know her. By Allison P. Davis.

οΏΌ

MARIAH CAREY LOVES CHRISTMAS. She loves it with a fanatic’s strict adherence to the laws of Christmas joy. She loves it like no one has ever loved Christmas before. (Did you have an actual reindeer at your holiday festivities last year? Did you hang out with Santa? Didn’t think so.) Christmas is also a cornerstone of the Carey complex. Frank Sinatra might have made the holiday classically jolly, Sufjan Stevens might have made it indie whiny, and Ariana Grande might have made it horny, but no artist has come to define our commercially driven holiday fantasies more than Carey has with β€œAll I Want for Christmas Is You.” Since the song dropped on her 1994 holiday album, it’s made an estimated $60 million-plus in royalties. It’s stayed relevant, thanks to fans, of course; a cover on the 2003 Love Actually soundtrack; an album reissue; an annual β€œAll I Want for Christmas Is You” holiday-concert series that sold out a show at Madison Square Garden last year; an animated film; an Amazon Music mini-doc about the undying meaning of the song; and streams on streams on streams. Last year, it finally hit No. 1 on β€œThe Hot 100” chart, after a record-breaking (for its slowness) 25-year journey. Who cares how long it took? It’s her 19th No. 1 hit-putting her above Elvis and one away from tying the Beatles. Does it matter if you like the song? (Full disclosure: I don’t.) No! It is the omnipresent anthem of holiday happiness. And so this year, this exceptionally s**t year of 2020, Carey, who always wants everyone to have a good Christmas, really thinks everyone should have a good Christmas, and she’s got 15 executives assembled in a Zoom war room at 10 p.m. to make damn sure everyone does. They’ve been going for two hours now, plotting ways to bring the merry and bright, no matter what it takes.

β€œI will sing with a puppet if it’s incredible,” I hear her say with deadly seriousness, that raspy, built-for-a-torchy-ballad voice floating in from one of many nearby rooms in the house she’s renting for the summer. She goes on to suggest possible puppets, determined to sing only with the best one or none at all.

Carey tippy-toes across the marble floors, carrying the Zoom meeting with her as she hovers in the entryway behind me. She’s in her comfies-black leggings, a black off-the-shoulder peasant blouse, and full makeup-but even dressed down, she’s walking like she’s in six-inch strappy Louboutins (a habit she references in the song β€œCrybaby”). She mutes her iPad mic to gree

Learning Trumpet For A Piano Player

I've been in and out of the piano for many years. For the most part, I don't really play anymore. But during my time on the piano, I did learn a lot about music theory.

I've decided to take my piano knowledge and put it to use on the trumpet. I played in 6th grade back in the early 80's and have been wanting to take it up again. I'm a comeback player about 6 weeks into it.

I purchased a trumpet book for beginners. It's basically the same book that I had in 6th grade band class (Standard Of Excellence by Pearson.) My chops are coming around and so far the book isn't all that difficult. I've been sticking with the book, working on it every day and doing exactly what it tells me to do. It's kinda boring, but at least I'm headed in a good direction.

At the same time, I want to learn all the Major and Minor scales and arpeggios.

Because I know all the Major and Minor scales and chords on the piano, I made this trumpet fingering piano chart and memorized the whole thing within my range on the Trumpet. The fingering above High C might not be what you expect, but it really doesn't matter because I can't get up there anyway. I'll figure it out later when my lips come around.

So now, I can play any Major or Minor scale that I want without having to look at a piece of paper. I see the chart in my head if I need fingering for any note.

What is your opinion of this approach?

C and C# are exactly the same. Having trouble diagnosing the issue.

I hope these questions are allowed. I tried searching and didn't have much luck. I bought an alto sax after being inspired by a jazz appreciation class in college but didn't keep up with it. My life has settled down so I'm picking it back up. I play piano/guitar and I played trumpet in high school so I'm not a total noob to music.

Here's my equipment: Yamaha YAS-23 purchased used from a shop that had serviced it before selling. It's sat in the case for about 4 years.

Mouthpiece - Yamaha 5C

Reeds - Hemke strength 2.0

Problem:

First, I play a regular middle C (e flat on tuner) and its in tune but to get it in tune, the mouth piece is barely on.

Then I hold down no keys to play C# and the tone doesn't change at all.

The same thing happens if I push the mouthpiece in further. There's no pads sticking as far as I can tell.

Its possible I'm over tuning and actually bringing the C# down to a C and the problem is with the C. But the same thing happens if I tune to another note.

Is this just a matter of bad technique or can anyone help me diagnose the problem? I guess I should probably pay for at least a few lessons from a teacher.

Edit: Just got back from music lesson. I was 1 key off reading the fingering charts and then trying to tune the saxophone around that lol I'm dumb but at least there's nothing wrong with my sax.

My go-to tees. They fit a little baggy so they're mad comfy and the print is great on a great blank! My friends don't know KITH so when I wear it they're like "WTF is that brand" to which I reply it's Mike Tyson's Kiss Tee Brand

Had to buy three colors (dark blue, white, pink) because I love them all!

Size S is too tight on me hence why I had to get M.

I stare at the corpse in the mirror. How desperately the dry, clay-colored skin clings to its skull. Rubbery. How narrow its tired eyes are, weighed down by the dark satchels hanging from them. How many broken vessels I could count beneath its sullen cheeks. A nebula of spider veins. A paint-splattered canvas. Children do not want to see this.

I am the owner of this dead reflection.

Hello, world.

I think about insomnia, and how many dreams it has kept me from lately. How it chokes our brains, sending the signals between the nerve cells into a gridlock. Subtly, each of the signals starts to short-circuit. Less and less manage to squeeze out of the darker tissues we call grey matter. Life loses its high definition.

My apartment is seven stories, neighboring an abandoned furniture store. Most nights, as I lie on my springy mattress, the ceiling starts to scream. A woman’s grating voice, sinking through the studs and thin layer of drywall. I can hear her voice clearly, as though she were right next to me. She says she’s sorry. She says her job isn’t easy. She begs the other voice not to hurt her.

There are also the shrill, caterwauling sounds of cats humping in the alley below my window. Together, the screams and cat wails form a duet. A terrible sound that makes me think about Holly.

My clothes are piled on the couch. This is because there is a waterfall in the closet. The landlord says he’ll have the leak fixed soon, but has not found the time yet. I complain again to him about the screaming ceiling; he says he’ll look into it.

This morning, I noticed the brand-new car he was driving. An electric one, because he cares about the environment.

Nobody else complains about the noises upstairs. In these halls, most occupants would rather avoid attention.

Still, in bed, I look at the clockβ€”half past one. I look back at the screaming ceiling. I look at the clock againβ€”eight hours have passed. But when did I fall asleep?

I think about Holly, and how much I hate her.

The studio’s dressing room is wide enough to fit three to four people with their own mirror space. Lining the back wall are assorted racks of different clothes, hats, and accessories. My seated shadow pools along the dark wood flooring. God’s manufactured light shines out of the mounted bulbs lining the mirror I’m using.

Considering switching from French Horn to Trumpet

Hi everyone

I've been playing French horn through school for 8.5 years now but for financial (my horn is the school's property and I can't keep it when I leave so I'll have to buy my own instrument and oh boy French horns are expensive) and practical reasons added to the fact that trumpet is better suited to the music I like to play, I'm considering switching to and buying my own trumpet. I'm just wondering how hard trumpet will be to learn given how long I've been on horn for and how different playing trumpet is from playing horn with regards to things like embouchure.

If I do decide to switch instruments, I will probably be replacing my weekly horn lessons with trumpet lessons so I can be at least somewhat OK at it when I leave school, but I will also continue to play horn at the same time until the end of the year as the band I'm in needs me to play it. If this is too much of a bad idea it might be possible for me to learn the pieces (they're all fairly simple and the parts are exactly the same) on trumpet as I'm learning to play but I don't know how realistic that is. Thanks for any help/information you can offer!

A guide to getting started with jazz V1

Hi all, I wrote earlier about writing up a guide for the subreddit on how to approach learning jazz as a beginner. I don’t want to get too deep into theoretical or technical things but I will talk about practicing, playing, repertoire, and certain fundamentals that you will definitely need. I will assume that you can somewhat play an instrument, know basic chord shapes, arpeggios, and scales, and know pitches. This guide will be revised in the future but may be of good service for this baby sub for now.

As for myself and what qualifies me to write this: I’m a professional guitarist and live in NYC which some may call the jazz capital in the world (at least right now for the time being). I’ve been playing guitar since I was 8 years old and I’m currently 27. I went to school in NYC for jazz performance and got my masters in music shortly after focusing on 20th and 21st century theory and composition. I also have been managing a well known NYC jazz venue for the last 6 and a half years. A lot of my playing opportunities more often come in the avant-garde world but I am active in the small-but-not-so-small NYC scene where everybody knows and plays with each other. If you want to listen to my work, you can check out one of my bands, Secret Mall or my most recent appearance as a sideman on my friend Colin Hinton’s album Simulacra. Anyways: let’s get started.

How do I start playing jazz?

Well, there’s a lot of ways. Most of them involve picking up your instrument and playing your instrument in the particular style. You can probably play your instrument at some level, so I’m sure that part isn’t the problem. If you’re anything like me, you were dumbfounded when you first heard a jazz recording. My first jazz recording I listened to was a Michel Camilo piece called Suite Sandrine. I was driving and heard it on the radio and had no idea what was going on but was sure that’s what I wanted to do.

Some people have the advantage of getting into jazz at an earlier age than I did (which was right after I finished my senior year of high school). High schools usually have some sort of jazz program, not all of them but some. The easiest gateway into the jazz world is through educational institutions. If you’re in high school, try to join the jazz band. If you’re in college, look for jazz and music classes. Your teachers in these scenarios will have some insight into what is going on in this crazy world,

There was once a horse that lived at a lovely little farm in Nebraska

Now, Martin the horse had a huge field to run around in, was given the best hay and oats to eat, and his farmer was really kind to him. But Martin always felt like his life was missing something.

One evening, Martin hears this lovely music coming from the direction of the farmer's house. He trots over to the house, and looks in the window. The farmer has some friends over, and one of the friends is playing a guitar and making the most heartbreakingly beautiful melody flow from his fingers. Martin is entranced, and spends the whole evening watching and listening. He sees that the farmer and all of the guests are moved to tears at the beauty of the sounds coming from that guitar, and is in absolute awe at how someone can create such emotions in his audience.

Martin spends the next several days thinking about what he saw and heard. He would be trotting along in his pasture and feel the music flowing through his veins. He remembered all of the tunes that were played that night, and they would run through his head and his heart all day. There were happy tunes, and songs of longing and love, songs of heartbreak and loss. Martin loved every single one of them.

After about a week of near-constant thought, Martin decided he couldn't keep the music in anymore. He needed to learn how to play the guitar and make other people and animals feel the same things he had been feeling for the past week. He *had* to learn. So Martin escaped from his pasture and headed to town. He wandered around the town until he found a music store with a guitar on the sign. Martin walked into the store, and the shocked store owner asked if there was anything he could help with. Martin told him he would like a guitar, but he didn't have any money. The shop owner, shocked at the fact that a horse wanted to play guitar in the first place, asked Martin why he wanted it, and Martin told him about the farmer's guest, and the living room concert he'd heard. He told the store owner how much the music had moved him, and that he can't stop thinking about it. He talked of wanting to play music like that, and help people heal from emotional pain. The shop owner was moved by Martin's impassioned speech, and said he would give Martin a guitar for free if he could watch him play.

Martin was thrilled, and carefully took the new guitar in its case from the shop owner. He then asked if there was anyone that could teach him to play. The shop owner thought about it, and said "Miss

I am so weirdly pleased with how fast I'm remembering how to play this instrument.

I can only really swing lessons for one and violin takes priority over that because that thing is just wicked to try and re-learn on your own. Still love it though.

Mostly, I play the stuff in the violin books as it's all beginner/easy stuff and found out pretty quick that while it takes some work for me still on the violin, on the clarinet it was too easy. Nice for warming up but easy to get it done and correct in 10 or so minutes.

Today I just sort of propped a fingering chart up in front of me as I'm still re-learning some of the odder combinations for sharps and flats, found a transposed version of Bach's Flute Paritia in A minor BWV 1013, as it's kind of a favorite of mine to listen to and play (albeit not all that well) on the violin. Closest I could find that was complete was a trumpet score but, hey, it works.

Got through sight reading it with minimal mistakes, only one squeak on a high C, and nearly at tempo. The faster parts in the middle I had to slow down on but the rest of it kept in time with the metronome.

Only had to pause once to look at the fingering chart because my brain somehow didn't parse that D sharp and E flat are the same note but, other than that, it went pretty well.

I definitely need work on the when to breathe and where and some of my lower notes are a little airy and, of course, the whole working on the embouchure aspect for the higher notes because my face is 20 years out of practice which made some of the higher notes a little wavy sounding but, overall, I was pretty pleased with how well I got through it.

53 YEARS AGO - Through the lens of THEN.

June 1, 1967 – The Beatles: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is released.
# ALL THINGS MUSIC PLUS+ 5/5 (MUST-HAVE!)

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band is the eighth studio album by The Beatles, released on June 1, 1967. It topped the Billboard 200 Top LP's chart for 15 weeks, and the UK Albums chart for 27 weeks. In 2003, and again in 2012, the album was placed at number one on Rolling Stone magazine's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time".

β€œThe Beatles definitely had an eternal curiosity for doing something different,” says George Martin, producer of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Certainly, this album was entirely different from anything which had gone before, and although it has been much imitated since, it remains today a unique, epochal record one which revolutionized the entire recording industry and caused such vast repercussions that its influence will very probably be felt for as long as the music is written and performed.

The Beatles’ musical ideas progressed in a most tangible way with each album they recorded. Geoff Emerick, the recording engineer who with George Martin formed the imaginative team which translated the Beatles’ requirements onto tape, once totted up the number of hours put into the making of Sgt. Pepper and came up with 700. Please Please Me, the Beatles’ first album, was recorded in 585 minutes.

Learning the Whistle as a Brass Player!

Edit: I just wanted to thank the /r/tinwhistle community for being so friendly and welcoming, and for putting up with me! You guys have been so helpful and have inspired me to really dive in and start learning the whistle!


I'm an amateur, very bad, brass player (primarily trumpet but I dabble in baritone and trombone). A few days ago I found a tin whistle at an antique store and picked it up for $4. It's a Generation Bb which looks like it's a few decades old judging by the wear on the brass, which looks similar to my '69 Conn trombone. I looked up a fingering chart and immediately started having tons of fun playing. Seriously, this thing is ridiculously fun, and I hardly want to put it down. I can't get over how expressive and agile the whistle is, and I love how clean and fast I can tongue notes. And I know it's not the same, but it feels like the whistle slots like a beast! It's soooo satisfying to finger a note and just feel it click in place, right in the center of the pitch.

Also, having access to the full range of the instrument right off the bat is a wonderful change. Range is one of my biggest problems on trumpet, where I have only just over 2 octaves. It feels surreal being able to jump up to the upper register without needing an embouchure of steel!

One thing I have to get out of my head is the trumpet harmonic series stuff. Every time I practice the whistle (and man do I need a lot of practice) I keep thinking that notes that use the same fingering on the horn are the same on the whistle. For example I'll be playing an E and try to jump to an A or a C# while still fingering the E, cause they all share a finger combo on the horn. That trips me up every time.

I have a few questions about the whistle

1- Are whistles tansposing instruments so you can pick up one in any key and know all the fingerings, like how it is with trumpets? I'm so used to Bb transposing instruments that I learned the fingerings for my Bb whistle that way, which is probably wrong, but at least the way I did it lets me play my trumpet music on it without having to adjust!

2- what sort of exercises should I do to work on staying in one register and avoiding splitting notes and getting a nasty multiphonics? It seems like whenever I'm in the bottom octave I keep accidentally popping up into the top one, and when im in the top octave the reverse happens. Sometimes I seem to be able to reign it in, but it's really inconsistent. I have a feeling a lot of it

Newbie question: Fingerings on Soprano Sax

Hey, so I've been meaning to pick up Sax for a long time now, and long story short finally got my hands on this absurdly beautiful nickle plated Antiqua Curved Soprano.

Bragging aside, I've hit a bit of a snag as far as fingerings go. Now my understanding is that Soprano Sax is in B flat, same as tenor (and same as trumpet, which i played for years and have tons and tons of sheet music for). Looking up fingerings has been a problem though. I dunno if what I'm finding on google is mislabeled or something, but they all look identical to the Alto fingerings. I've pulled up charts for both Soprano and Tenor sax.

So my question is this. Is this a mistake or i'm just an idiot and they're different? Or does say, let's take C. all 6 fingers + bottom right pinky. Is that a C for Alto, and a C for Soprano meaning concert Eb and Bb respectively? Or is concert Bb the same fingering and my searching for charts sucks?

Or i guess to phrase it another way, in Brass, the same fingering produces the same note regardless of which one you're playing. Do different saxophones produce different notes with the same fingerings? And i guess also important, when learning to read Soprano sax music, can i just read my old trumpet music and be mostly fine?

Thanks guys, appreciate it!

I have been converted.

I played trombone from 5th grade through college. I had a blast, I was low brass for life. There's just something about cranking out The Stripper at a football game that you trilly bastards just can't understand. I had fun, and I played for fun. But I didn't practice for fun. Hell, in those eleven years I may have practiced twice. Practicing was work, and work wasn't fun.

One day I got handed a euphonium and had to learn it for a piece. I translated slide positions to fingerings and bumbled my way through it. When I was done, I was left with an itch. An itch that couldn't be satisfied by flapping around like a one-armed boxer throwing tiny punches. I needed to move my fingers. For months I found myself running up an imaginary Bb scale during rests, cementing it into my muscle memory. Then, I graduated with a degree I wasn't happy with and moved into a completely different field. 10 years later I can't even remember the last time I pulled my bone out.

Last year I came across a trumpet at a pawn shop for $75. My fingers immediately started moving. Bb scale, remembered it perfectly. I wonder if I could figure out a jazz scale... boom, got it. But I didn't have $75 on me. The hunt was on. I'm a sucker for a good deal, so I waited patiently.

Last month I found a craigslist ad, Holton student model. Near perfect condition, with case. $25. She hadn't played it since 7th grade and it was taking up space. Problem is she couldn't find the mouthpiece. It was in the pictures she posted, but apparently someone had come to look at it and the mouthpiece was gone. :/ oh well, I took it anyway. $17 on amazon for a mouthpiece and some valve oil, I had a whole trumpet. I ran up and down that scale like I'd found an old lost dog.

Problem is I can't read treble clef. I found a fingering chart and a website with simple sheet music and I play till my face falls off. I've practiced more in a month and had more fun with this trumpet than I did in two decades with my bone. I could never do improv before. My brain went dead, my ears would close and I'd make a fool out of myself every time. With this tooty little thingamajig I'm puttering around to songs on the radio like a fool.

Guys, I'm sorry. Whatever (good-natured) trash talk I've given you over the years, I take it back. I'm switching teams.

Shadow Hound on SB Two first little chapters are for you to decide if you like that awkward SI or not.

  1. Charts are our everything

or A little bit about how Someone Chose Not My Own Adventure

I was peacefully scratching my nose let's say from the inside, and not scratching but picking, but who cares, really. There was no one but me in the apartment and I got this itch, so why not.

I was also staring my laptop down, trying to decipher Choose Your Own Adventure for Worm, and in my head I was like "How can you be that bored To hang out in the ending world", yep, russian Skittles 2007 commercial was that creepy you might consider it good for citation while thinking on Worm CYOA. All those memes about hangings on the rainbow...

As always, I made a decision to kill two bunnies with one stone, or whatever you say when you try to make two charts on one and only sheet of paper. Even if I'd never use that writer's crutch for my own fanfiction, I was somehow curious about writing down the initial plot of my future fanfic in the boundaries of that system. And the second chart on the list was all about me, if I did the real insertion of my own mind into that mad realm full of destruction. I always thought you should have some pity for your main character, but not too much, or the adventures won't be interesting to read.

http://www.picshare.ru/view/10220833/

Finally I put finishing touches on the last chart, something about time of insertion, and set the CYOA devoted sheet of paper aside, taking the other one sheet of paper, much more useful, the disposable napkin for snot, sweat and slobber, that is.

I sniffed pretty loud and reached for spray but it downed on me that I used it's magic couple of hours ago and it never went away. And it's a week I'm struggling with it, so it's something a bit more serious than flu, I suppose. And the body temp got that high I'm not even feeling it. That kinda rings some bells. There's high probability I need a doctor.

"Sinusit, I'm lovin' it", - I started singing McDonaldz commercial tune because if I start remembering old commercials it gets out of my subconscious as well.

The next thing I did was trying to show the "para-pa-pa-pa" part with my body because the voice stopped working. That was such a perfect timing.

My ridiculously uplifting but very much stupid moves were interrupted by Timmy Trumpet and his Freaks calling for me, and that meant one of my friends assaulting me

This review is about the sound, I feel like the build quality is fantastic though. Actually amazing build for the current price.

A little about my music tastes. I mostly listen to EDM and some HipHop, mixed in with Jazz and a little bit of everything else. I don’t like a lot of Vocals, listen to very little with Vocals. However love horns, piano, and drums. But also love Synthesizer and 808. I have been into sound since I was a teen, started out with car stereo installs and enclosure building and that built up to Home Theater. I sold home theatre at Sun TV and HH Gregg into my 20s, then my career changed to IT. However the last 7 years it has been all about the headphones and everything that goes with them. I currently own 58x, AD700x, SPH9500s, Grado Sr60. As well as several mobile and wireless options, Bowers Wilkins PX, Bose Soundsports, Bose OE2’s, Jaybird Tarah Pro

My Desk Setup:

Tidal MQA and Foobar DSD > Pangea USB > Topping D10 > Cavalli Liquid Spark --- audio bypassing the Windows Stack

I am about 40 Hours in to the 150 Hours of Burn In. I feel like that sound isn't going to change enough to change my review. I haven't wrote many reviews but feel like we need more positivity for these headphones in the world. This is more of an β€œaverage joe audiophile” perspective… I defiantly don’t have the fancy terms for the nuance of sound, but hope I can covey things in a way you understand what I am trying to share. So here goes... :)

The sound can seem dependent on the recording, if the recording is dark, these can be dark… If it’s airy, these can be airy. They don’t feel veiled at all to me, while they are not a bright headphone I am not sure I would call them dark either. Again I feel like it’s sort of dependent on the recording / song. I heard things that sounded both ways. These are a type of headphone I have really been looking for, and I thought planar is what I needed. While I still haven’t had the chance to liste

Can someone please help me figure out the fingering here, I'm super confused

OK, so I did have lessons where I was taught about sheet music, but a lot of it didn't sink in and I've been reading, but I'm still not sure, so I need some help please.

I've got this here snippet this is the trumpet part from Sgt peppers lonely hearts club band, but just to confuse things, this sheet music is for the trumpet part to be played by piano, I couldn't find the actual trumpet sheet music for actual trumpet anywhere. The plan is to play this with a band (all of whom play by ear and can't read sheet music)

AFAIK, this is in E Minor, so the Fs (in red, I think) are OXO, except they've got accidentals beside some of them, so I think that means they're played like in C, which is XOO (are they all like that or just the ones with the widget)

And then the Bs all have b beside them, so instead of being OXO, they're XOO, (which incidentally, is how they're played in C)

So, why not just make the Fs Fb ? (although as I look at my fingering chart, I see that there is no Fb)

And if the F and B are modified to be played as they are in C, then why not just make this in the key of C and # the D? (there's only 1 D for trumpet in this whole piece)

Also, this just occurred to me, is this really E minor? Does it need transposed? If so, according to this I should be playing in F# minor in which case, wtf?

Help!

Help Trouble Shooting New Instrument

Im a Trumpet player and wanted to expand my Brass instrument resume so i bought a bit of a beater French horn to practice on. The third valve was very resistive so I decided to take the horn apart and give the rotary valves a good scrubbing on the inside with soapy water. Anyways got the instrument all put back together and the valves strung back up but im having issues getting the horn to play a scale or arpeggios with a fingering chart in front of me. What i did notice is that when i pull some of the tuning slides out while having the valve pressed it still pops like there is air pressure. On other when i pull it out there is no pop.

Is it possible one of the valves are backwards even though it lets air and sound through the instrument? (I know on trumpet it wont play if a valve is backwards.

Any help would be appreciated. Perhaps the slides are so out of tune im just struggling to hone in on the notes?

Buddy gave me this bugle and I want to know some more about it

A trumpet player in my band had this bugle and saw no use for it so he just kinda gave it to me. I play baritone so I know some things about it, but not much. I know it's a Getzen bugle with one valve and that I have to transpose my tuner to D instead of C, where it usually is. I'd like to know if there is some note/fingering chart for it, how to hold it properly, and anything else worth knowing about it.

TL;DR: I got a single valve bugle and would like some more info on it

For Your Consideration #133: Jordaan Mason & the Horse Museum - Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome back to For Your Consideration, the weekly series where we discuss albums that aren't on our Essentials chart, and maybe why they should be. To kick off 2018, /u/11trobo is here with their take on Jordaan Mason's album with the Horse Museum, Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head.


Artist: Jordaan Mason & the Horse Museum

Album: Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head


Listen

Youtube

Spotify

Bandcamp


Background by /u/11trobo

To say Canadian underground folk artist Jordaan Mason is an anomaly would be an understatement. Little media attention and few press releases make Mason an eclectic figure to write about, most of the information available is from word of mouth or from various low-key interviews. Mason (or Mason’s band) has no Wikipedia page or specific fan-site, but a dedicated following nonetheless. The largest media attention (if you could call it that) Mason has gotten was a two-hour interview done for /mu/’s semi-annual β€œ/mu/chellapaloozaroo”, an online music festival in which fans listen to a set lineup of albums at the same time and discuss said music.

Mason has been making music for thirteen years now, writing ever since high school. One day the horses will have their revenge, Mason’s first album, was written and recorded in 2004, when Mason was still seventeen. Since then, Mason has released at least fifteen albums, compilations, and demos since revenge, collaborating with an ever-shifting list of associates, too many so to fully list in this writeup.

Musically, Mason’s work can be described as lo-fi folk, similar in aesthetic to early Car Seat Headrest and Mount Eerie. In the aforementioned interview, Mason states groups like Holy Haunted Head, Hop Along, and early Andrew Jackson Jihad to be musical influences. The 2004 album A Kali Yuga Opera by Holy Haunted Head proved to be a major influence to Mason’s work, and can be heard in Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head

Fingerings for above high c

Does anyone have fingerings they use or a fingering chart that for the notes above a high c two lines above the staff. I have not been able to find one all over the internet. I had this same problem with trumpet in the past. I know will probably not need to go that high, but I would just like to know so I can push myself.

Working professional but don’t want to do grades. How should I design a study plan?

I started to learn trumpet three years ago but effectively I didn’t practice as much as I’d like (living with 3 other people so I don’t want to disturb them, was working full time and studying for my professional qualification at the same time so had very little free time etc).

I found it really hard to progress now. I still don’t know how to study music theory without spending too much time on the impractical ones, I still couldn’t memorise my finger chart (that could be because I had so little time to practice), I couldn’t read music notes.

What’s the best way to design a study plan for a working professional like me who feels like a forever beginner? I could play songs like I Remember Clifford, Perdido, etc easily if I had the help of finger charts. I otherwise couldn’t play ..

A trumpet player in my band had this bugle and saw no use for it so he just kinda gave it to me. I play baritone so I know some things about it, but not much. I know it's a Getzen bugle with one valve and that it was once like the standard bugle for drum and bugle corps. I'd like to know if there is some note/fingering chart for it, how to hold it properly, and anything else worth knowing about it.

TL;DR: I got a single valve bugle and would like to know more about it
