Trumpet Section

Our concert went well, I played all my solos well even though towards the end my lips were exhausted.

[music |Hector Berlioz - Marche au Supplice]

I have checked LJ in a long time. A chunk of my life is missing that can only be filled by personal details of people whom I hardly know (mostly through Speth). Oh, and Jett Payjack/Zebb.

In other news, it turns out that I've been playing trumpet wrong for 6 years, I find that if I adjust my lower lip to be completely inside the mothpiece rather than on the rim, I can hit higher notes with less stress but I have little control over tone and volume, it's like learning to walk again.

Even more pathetic, I have been writing more music lately, in fact a lot more. But all of it is still dwarfed by the works of Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, Berlioz, Tcaikosvky, and other seemingly gigantic figures who have mastered the art of organizing sounds.

And Chris, I know I never formally wrote your dad a thank you note for the trumpet he gave me 2 or so years ago, but let him know that it's a great instrument and I am very thankful for it.

Atonality is causing me a mental breakdown. 12 tones, all 12 fucking pitches.

Thank you for reading.

I may be broke, but I have a Fender Bass now, it's bloody sweet.

Oh and I got a gig playing with the Phoneix City Jazz band tonight, rad.

Awesome [Jun. 22nd, 2006|12:28 am]

I had 2 awesome nights.

Tuesday - Scott, Kevin and I decide to make complete fools out of ourselves by going to the Desert Ridge open mic night and playing under that name "The Original Edwuardo's Tweezers Travlin' Blues Band" and we played 3 songs that we made up right then and there. Fun.

Wednesday - I went to see Dweezil Zappa (Frank Zappa's son) play and at was bloody amazing. 3 hours of Frank Zappa masterpieces, and they played my favorite "Peaches in Regealia." It's a damn shame that hardly anybody from my generation listens to his music, in comparison to his music, today's bands (I mean ALL of today's bands from obscure street punk to chart topping pop) it seems dehumanized, no passion, little musical skill, and complete carbon copies of the studio versions. But yea, it was an amazing show.
