My trumpet playing quality
– How was that playing?
– Hmm, a… Kind of 16 bits
Nothing particulary cool, but I’m just warming :)
Will try again in a few moments, when people start going home.
EDITED TO ADD another couple citations:
– You do not have a sound
– If I would drink, I’d stop it
The latter was said when a passing pedestrian in the office heard how we played ‘Hava Nagila’ by trumpet and bass guitar. highpower@ and me were not in the best shape though…
Well, I kind of agree – when I’m drunk and there is an audience (even of one person) I can not play my best sounds, so, yes, it sucked. There were no attack and clear note’s sound changes, lips did not always stay the right way and produced the sound I can play best, so instead it was most of the time some ugly crap.
But, but, but: I knew that myself (I always knew that I can not yet play when I’m drunk), so I suppose that my judgement about sound quality in the different condition is also correct and I do produce interesting sounds some other time.
But what I definitely have problems with is the sound duration and clear sound attack – I’m just bloody miserable at it, so even do not use it on the sheets and instead hear a melody played by the author to understand what and how it should be done. So I will buy a metronome tomorrow and will start playing and memorizing sounds with clear durations. And maybe will by a trumpet. Just to get myself a toy present: 6335(S), 8310(S)Z or even 8335 Xeno, although I incline to the light and sharp lead sound, so likely Z-series, but I will try to play it and hear how does it sound. Or maybe not, we’ll see.
I’m not a good musician, but I like how things go, and I will improve.
