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.

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.

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.

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.

I love the background for the Remington. Im just a little confused on how you play ur version of Remington. In my high school band we warm-up with remington but we start with an F for four counts and then go to an E natural for four and back up to the F for four but then we hold for four and we repeat with the F for four and then go down to an E flat for 4 and back up to the F and so on and so forth. Just curious on how the real Remington is played.

I've always done it starting on Bb . I wrote it out, you can find the pdf file at the bottom of this post...

http://tromboneforum.org/index.php/topic,40917.msg588557.html#msg588557

No real reason you can't start on F, just not with the playalong. Remington used to adapt his own stuff for different students, so you may come across different versions of things. The version that I wrote out is the one in the Remington/Hunsberger book. Playing the first F in 6th (bar 10), followed by the F in 1st was what Hal Janks (who studied with Remington) used to have us do. Get the 6th position F in tune with the 1st. Sometimes I'll play the 1st low Bb in bar 24 with the F att., to tune it up with the Bb in bar  25 in 1st. I also will sometimes play bars 11-37 down an octave, after I've played it as written.

I start on Bb too. 

But I add some variations that take longer.  I play each interval twice.  Bb to A, 1 to 2, then again Bb to A, 5 to 2, natural slur, trying to match the intonation and tone quality of the Bb in 1 and the Bb in 5.  And at the end, slide flexibility 5 to 2 alternated with lip flexibility 5-5 (Bb-Gb) trying to match the speed.

If time permits, repeat one partial lower starting on F.

I kinda like the simplicity of playing it as written, since it's usually the first thing I play in a day, plus I also start out each lesson that I teach with it. No reason you can't add more to it, but that wouldn't be my choice for the first notes of the day or lesson.

Yeah, you're right.  I just can't seem to help it.  I start with a simple routine, then after a while I start to think of ways to complicate it, and before I know it that first five minute exercise has turned into 45 minutes and I have no time for anything else. 

Probably the answer for me is a rotation scheme like JP uses.  I'm doing Brad Edwards now, and it should take 20 minutes.  But.............it doesn't.  hee, hee.  I might buy that 11 day Reinhardt book.

I often use Band In A Box to create simple play-along tracks for my students.  You just pick the rhythm, type in the chords that you want to play along to, and loop it for as many repetitions as you want or need.  On the newer versions, you can turn the whole thing into a midi file, and if your studens can't use a midi, then get a little freeware program called Midi to wave.  I use another freeware program called VanBasco Midi player.  It will not only play your midi files, but it will allow you to change the key, the tempo, and even mute one of the tracks if you decide you don't like it, or want to play that part yourself.  One of the greatest practice facilitators I know is an accompaniment.  It's more interesting than a metronome, and it is a lot more pleasant for whoever else happens to be in the house at the time.  That reminds me of the time we all got stuck at the Templehof Airport because one of the percussion players left the battery in his metronome.  They had to pull off all the luggage and inspect it and we almost got into a whole lot of - - - but I digress.

For an entire course based on the play along concept, go to: http://www.danotman-music.com and check out "16 Weeks to Killer Chops"!  The sample is my original version of Week 1 which has all the notes written out.  You get an organized method to improve your range and endurance and can progress at your own pace.  I guarantee a work out and a good time!

Michael Davis has a great play-along warm-up with CD accompaniment (2 of them, actually) that are mostly based on Remington. They are called the 15 Minute Warm Up and the 20 Minute Warm Up. They're not free, but well worth the $$$. Both are available on his website...

Should I be willing to admit in public that the "Remington playalong" is the most frequently played song in my iTunes library?  The Remington long tones are typically the third thing I play in a practice session.  Don't know why I need the accompaniment, but it keeps me company.  I play it as written, then do it from F to C in the trigger range.

Hi, Gliik, the Remington long tones can be found in "The Remingon Warm-Up Studies" as prepared and edited by Donald Hunsberger.  It is published by Accura Music, and shouldn't be too hard to find.  I probably got it from Hickey's.  The book is full of good daily exercises, and these long tones are the exercise that comes first.  Until you get the book, you can find the exercise at www.boneswest.org/pdf/Remington.pdf.

The point of long tones is to be able to focus on precise intonation and a beautiful sound, free from technical difficulties.  You want to sound as good as you can, while playing in a relaxed manner.  Of course one doesn't need this playalong to do the long tones, but some of us do need the playalong.

A little late to the party ... by several years.

I don't see the mp3 file anymore. Removed?

Thanks

 Hi

Thank you Mr. Barrett!

I had the pleasure of working with Walter earlier in the year, and I'm sure most around here of you know how beautifully he plays!  Good!
It's very cool to have read your material while lurking around here seeking ideas for a small bore instrument to play again.

hope all is well!
best,
Terry Reynolds

Could be worse.  You could have jock itch too!!

I love to mouthpiece buzz with this play-along when I'm driving to a gig or rehearsal.
Nice worm up for me!


Thanks again!

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.

   This was GREAT! I use it often. What else ya working on??

I really enjoy this warm up and was wondering if you have created anymore "play-along" sessions?

Thanks

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


PL

My instructor has me using a book that's called 15 minute warm up routine by Michael Davis, it has a CD with it to play along....some very challenging stuff some easy stuff....I enjoy it...
