Trumpeting in C.
With time its getting better and better. If previously I succeeded once per 4-5 attepmts to play simple melody (like “Yesterday“), now I’m able to play correctly half of the time if not more. It also becomes easier to move to the higher register and play at the end of the second octave, although the latter can not be called ‘playing’ more likely sound producing. First octave is played without problems at all. Although I still do not transpose notes (actually even do not try to :).
So, I decided to start playing not only rhythm-less improvisations, but something more interesting.
So, “The bumblebee flight” by Rimsky-Korsakov. It is very fast, but so far I do not see notes I can not play, so this will be a good exercise to be able to play it vivace :)
Eventually of course, not immediately, today I only learned couple of the first times. And although I have trumpet sheet, it may be not transposed, since in one place I found two notes, which are actually the same, but written differently one after another (first F and E# or concert Eb and D#) , if it is not trasposed, my playing will suck. We will see, or I would say hear.
Tried to make couple of records, but with laptop microphone results is way too awful. Well, it may be my sounds are that uncool, but I prefer to think it is a mic, since I hear it not that bad actually :)
