Herp Albert is...ahhh...FRUSTRATING :twisted: ! You have to have super human fingers to pull off his stuff...

I have of couple of his charts and they are way up there in the crazy-o-meter. Very, very technical but for right now I am working on classical stuff (Haydn concerto mostly)...

I'll admit, my range was never any higher than an A above the staff, and then I switched to french horn, and my trumpet has been cast aside and is only used for jazz band... But it's a Back student model of some sort, with a bach 7C mouthpiece. It's got some dings, but it still sounds great, and looks pretty sweet, too. If I used it more, I'd go up to a rose jupiter.
Be glad you don't have to stick a marimba on a harness and march it.

I see that LoneMello has a Taylor Chicago Custom as his signature. Just wondering: has anyone here actually played one of these horns (or even a Monette...<dreamful sigh>)... I was just wondering if these breed of heavyweight horn has any effect on range? I know that it seriously darkens up the horn's sound, but I am wondering if it affects any other aspects of it (besides making your arm really tired really fast)...
