Developing a hearing
Today I believe I played my best sound – it was just what I always wanted to hear.
Trumpet sounds were so voiced, clear and had sharp attack, that I even thought I reached the edge I set for myself. As reached so pushed it further – it is quite stable, but not always and not always easy at small octave and higher than piano 2F. But that’s what I know how to improve – practice. And I see some progress there.
But my hearing – I believe I do not really have it good. This weekend I spent with friends where among others tried to play both acoustic and electric guitar. I can not play guitar anymore (well, even 8 years ago it was something really miserable), so I just tried to pick out by ears some melodies I heared. It was noticebly different than that on trumpet or piano, but still it was very hard. I believe I succeeded on the part of the melody I tried, but it took maybe 10 or so minutes to pick out about 20 notes (I ‘played’ just on two strings).
Looks like my trumpet playing technique moves way too faster than hearing development, and practice I have does not help to develop a hearing. Need to do something with it.
