Trumpet Playing Styles – How to Develop a Distinct and Authentic Sound

There are hundreds of thousands of trumpet players in the world, perhaps even millions. I really have no clue as to the real number of players there are, and the exact number isn’t important. The thing I would like you to think about is how many of those players could you distinguish by name from their sound alone? My guess is you probably couldn’t name too many. Why are some players instantly recognizable while others may be good players, but sound too similar to other good players to recognize individually? The answer is that the players who are easily identifiable have developed a personal style that sets them apart. And for this reason, most of those players are the ones that have become more well-known such as: Louis Armstrong, Wynton Marsalis, and Miles Davis.

Guitar Practise For Progress

Timing issues The best way to practise is to always begin slowly and always practise in time and preferably to a metronome. This is true of any style of music because the most important aspect of most music is WHEN a note or chord or contrapuntal melody note is sounded relative to another note or chord. Most pupils or students seem to avoid this fact and instead try to play by ‘feeling’ the tune.

Feedback – Not The Electric Guitar Kind

The kind of feedback we’re talking here is not the squealing, piercing cry of a vintage Les Paul electric guitar held too close to the amp it’s plugged into; this kind of feedback can make or break a musician. Too often budding guitarists lock themselves away in their rooms for hours upon hours of mind numbing repetition and experimentation. The idea is to become the Wizard of Oz, or something, and suddenly jump out from behind the curtain wielding flawless hammer-ons and gritty power chords like some guitar god of the ages.
