my real goal is to pick a brass instrument to pick up, but I don't know the right words to research what I want.
I have a strong ear, so certain instruments are easier than others for me.
So one example of an "easy" instrument is the bass guitar. Every string is a 4th apart, and every fret is a half step apart. So this means with a little knowledge of music theory, it is very easy to play a song in any key (especially if you play closed position fingerings)
An example of a harder instrument is the piano. The distance between the white keys and black keys is different, which makes playing in different keys feel very different. This would be "fixed" if you removed all the black keys, and tuned the white keys a half step apart.
Is there a brass instrument that has this sort of regularity or close to it? I imagine it is harder because when you blow harder you go up the harmonic series, so that goes up a 5th then a 4th then a 3rd...
Is there a resource for brass instruments that explains the function of the buttons in terms of intervals? When I try to Google this the beginner content just shows me the fingering for different notes and it's hard to find the pattern.
Is trombone the best?
