I recently finished a reggae playalong track to go with the Remington Whole Note Warmup. 2 minutes and 20 seconds of longtone goodness, mon! Just put  4 beats in before you go to the next partial in 1st position.

I will use this.  Just what I needed, but found it so hard to find online for free!

The Remington Warmup Studies are a collection of maintenance exercises that many of us use when we first start playing each day.

It starts with a series of whole notes, exercises to check intonation of the positions, exercises for smoothness in legato, exercises on articulation, flexibility, rangebuilding, etc.  There are 10 exercises (that can be expanded).  You could design your own set, but we all have standardized on these.

If you wanted a "free" version, there are several "warmups" available on the 'Net from Jeff Adams, etc.

Thanks for that

I have a number of different warmups from different sources, including ideas of what other people do from within this great forum :)

Thanks, Walt!  This is going to make warming up a whole lot more enjoyable!

This reply isn't about Remington but SmartMusic  is pretty cool as well. There's a ton of exercises you can do with some kind of funky back ground. There are all kinds of method books you can click on. Scale patterns with some cool accompaniment. To check this out go to SmartMusic.com . It cost me $55 well worth the $$. You can also down load all kinds of concert band charts, Jazz Charts.  You can record yourself. Very good stuff. I am pretty sure if you are a student you can get a student discount when you order SmartMusic. Just throwing this out to be helpful.

I guess I was just assuming that everyone knew the Remington Whole Note Study. Not sure about the Jeff Adams site, nor if it has it. I stuck a pdf file of it at the bottom of this post. To use it with my playalong, just stick an extra bar of rest between 10-11, and 24-25.

I have the Remington Warm-up Exercises. How does one play them. Do you play through the whole set each day. By the way in my version there are 11 not ten sets of exercises.

I believe if you're an ITA or AFM member it's quite a bit cheaper.
Worth checking out.

This is really helpful.  Do you have any other "play alongs"  for the Remington Studies?

Is there anymore variations that go with this?  Something like lip slurs would be awesome, but I just want to know if they are out there.
