I am a high school senior in New York, studying lots of interesting stuff including Comp Sci and music and math. I play the trumpet, flugelhorn, bass, and guitar. I have used Apple gear (Macs, iPhones, and iPods) for years, and have become a cheap IT guy for local small businesses. I have recently started iOS development, see my website for more info!

When I do that, it always causes some throat pain and makes me lose my voice within a few minutes unless im well lubricated. It seems to me that rough should be easier than growling, no?

comment Is there a name for the screeching sound made when changing chords on a guitar?
A lot of hard rock depends on that sound during slower sections, see Seether.

comment Proper way to finger Flugelhorn
I have tiny hands, but find I play much more expressively with the meat of my fingers rather than the tips.

@VarLogRant, I think we're agreeing

comment Guitar Action for practicing and learning
I think it also depends on where on the fretboard you're playing. The lower down (like metal) it is, I think higher action becomes less of a problem. (lets you pick hard, reduces buzz for the open chords, etc)

I love my current mouthpiece, I'm just looking for a mouthpiece that would fill a bit of a different role.

simple physical structures that generate chord types?

We have an eight person section, so the flugel really helps round out the sound from the other trumpets. That isn't the issue.

True. thing is, I play my flugel for cornet parts in my HS Wind Ensemble and some of them can get a bit rangy, in addition to jazz pieces.

Thanks. I've got a Yamaha Bobby Shew Custom, so my guess is it can go as high as any other flugel-he sure can play high.

comment How to remove a rusted or stuck mouthpiece?
I doubt WD-40 would work, as the rust isn't just a source of friction but is acting as a bonding agent.

comment Can I split guitar string gauges?
I can deal with the second issue-for super-heavy stuff, I like the lighter top to cut thru the bass.

comment How many drop tunings can I use with one set of strings?
I already use 11s as my normal strings because I play a lot of metal and like the tight response. Are 11s big enough?
