trumpet

Hey, I thought I'd make a thread where trumpeters can share tips, tricks, and ask questions. Trumpet players are special, so we need to unite. So if you have any playing tips, questions, ideas, new trumpet accessories, or anything other people might benefit from, post it here.:kspin:

Hey dan!
Im not actually a trumpet player, I just pretend = early learning process. Ive got a cornet that my grandpa gave me. it is a york and sons from circa 1909. It can play in several keys - how many Im not sure. Normally I just leave it in the key of Bb or A.
Here is a question for ya, and since Im not a trumpet player it may sound stupid. How high is considered high on a trumpet, and how high can the greats go. Just Curious.
Right now I can hit the 2nd G above the staff pretty easily, I could probably go higher but I ran out of fingering charts.
Also is oit possible to play the F below the staff, the F#(123) is easy but the F(0) just wont come out for me.
The fingering chart I have been using is http://www.birdwellmusic.com/trumpet...t/vTrumpet.asp
it is at the bottom, I can play all those notes and if you could tell me fingerings for higher and lower nots I would appreciate it.

What I do play is Tuba and sax...

thanks
Josh

Ooh! I play trumpet, and I am currently learning guitar. I have been playing trumpet for about eight years, and I am very active in playing music in school. ^_^

Billikenn, I'm not a trumpet master either, but reasonably high for most trumpeters is high C, which is the next partial above the G your talking about. And the F# is the lowest note possible on a trumpet without doing pedaltones. My band instructor's friend can hit triple high C, wich is two octaves above high C. That is VERY high!:keek:

Let me just make sure I understand. Most players can play a C in the space between the 5th and 6th line above the treble staff? And your band directors freind can play 2 octaves above that (which would be in the space between the 12th and 13th line above the staff)?
That would be crazy, and really cool. Do the fingerings stay the same as on the staff as you go higher. In other words, triple high C would be open?

thanks Dan

Yes, all C's are open, but at the low register of the trumpet partials are way spread out. Then as they get higher, some start to get ruled out and theoretically way, way up there all the notes become open fingerings.

It is going all right. all I have been doing is trying to expand my range. Which means I get to play about every 4 days cuz my diaphram hurts, well acrually all my abs. I cant find my old skils book so I have to go get a new one. I will start random note playing soon (just randomly playing notes not next to each other) then Iwill start the skills book again after I can play most notes individually.
