I thought that the section on vibrato was really interesting.  I enjoyed that.

Heck yeah!  I know Bloomfield.  I traveled the state gathering info for a trivia book I wrote about New Mexico...The Quiz of Enchantment.  You can buy it on Amazon.com here:
http://www.amazon.com/Quiz-Enchantment-Michael-McDonald/dp/0937206237/ref=sr_1_1/103-4686673-5290209?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1173333390&sr=8-1
It used to have a little more prominence, but over the years it's lost its place.  In fact, I'm still surprised Amazon still carries it.
It's nice to know there are some New Mexicans...and former New Mexicans...that are trombone enthusiasts.  I get homesick for it occasionally, but find the beauty of the green mountains of Western North Carolina have their own charm.  We love it here now.

LOL....yep!  I always enjoyed the "One of Our Fifty is Missing" from the New Mexico Magazine.  Know what I'm talkin' about?  It is hilarious (and quite astounding)how many people think New Mexico is still part of Mexico.
Sorry to have gotten off the subject, but it was good to see some New Mexican trombonists on here without having to type in Spanish.  LOL

Speaking of amusing State names,  I always have found it humourous that the Mexican state below California is Baja California and the state below that is Baja California Sur,  creative naming isn't it?

Actually, that would be Baja California Norte and Baja California Sur.

 Hi

I'm a newbie here. I found the Beginners Resource very helpful. I downloaded all of the PDF scales and Jazz MIDI's. Thanks so much.

I'm from Wisconsin, (we just got 11 inches of new snow today), and play an old Couesnon valve trombone, after being away from it for many years.

I have two questions for you all:

1. Does anyone like to play traditional jazz?

2. What mouthpiece would you suggest for that type of music? Mine doesn't have a number on it, just the name, and Paris.

Thanks for your help!!

Hi and welcome! Hi

Lots of us play jazz.  Some of us play valve trombones (although not too many of us).

If the mouthpiece plays OK, I'd keep it.  If you need to replace it, you should consider a Bach 12C, 11C, 7C, or equivalent.  All suitable for jazz.  Or you can play nearly anything else - it seems somebody is playing jazz on nearly any mouthpiece you can imagine!

Don't sweat the details.  Just make music.  And have fun!

Well, I done it again.
Here are all Major & relative minor scales in Treble, alto, tenor and bass clefs.

Skip those bars outside your range  ;-)

This should be usefull gor those who want to reference "the other clefs".

If you like it, let me know and if there's anything you'd like transcribed.  Alto Clef  Yeah, RIGHT.

i actually used my bach 12c for jazz.  i was more able to make octave jumps with it, over the 6 1/2AL i used for classical/symphonic stuff.

I am here learning about the trombone.  I have a OLDS MODEL LA from the 1940's, and it sounds great (at least the few notes I have) --- OH, yeah I am a comeback trumpet player for the last 3 years ---BUT many a trumpet player on another forum indicates that the trombone will improve a trumpet players endurance and such.  James Morrison, Maynard Ferguson, are some names touted as great trumpet players -- but they are(were) monster trombone players also  Amazed Amazed Amazed

Is there a place on the forum for listings of people who give lessons in particular geographic area or types of playing? I am picking up a horn after a couple of decades, and would like to get some guidance so I don't learn some new bad habits to accompany the bad habits I had from long ago. And I'd like to shift my focus from orchestral/symphonic band stuff toward smaller ensemble playing.

PhilS,

Check out the Pedagogy section.  If you make a post there, you will probably find someone.

In the link above, you will fine many theory classes for beginners and some licks, and cool approaches to some things that are a little more advanced.
The diminish scale approach from these videos is great. Javier Arau the director of NYJA, teaches it in a way that you will find it simple, and never forget it.

Thanks for posting this. I am a VERY RAW beginner, 55 years old. My current instrument is the trumpet and am also starting the trombone at the suggestion of my teacher (a trumpeter and trombonist). Fun!!! Grin
