I thought violin was hard to learn. Hi everybody just joined got my horn a few days ago. Thinking I will have my first 5 notes down in a couple of days but how wrong was I. Looking at loads of you tube videos for a few weeks. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. I kept thinking to myself how can people play these licks with all this tension I was feeling. I kept thinking about this and then found Greg’s channel and it all clicked.
It is so soul destroying when you can’t o what you want to do. I have been practicing this evening trying to get a relaxed tone. I have been doing the lip shape as if you are blowing a hot drink and a few times I have got a fairly relaxed tone.
Anyway nice to meet you all.
Great to hear from you and welcome to WindWorks! Enjoy the PROCESS my friend, it is ultimately very rewarding once you start getting that beautiful trumpet sound out.
