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...

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.

Fantastic, I'm just starting playing again after some years away and knew I needed to do plenty of long notes but they bore me to tears - this will help make it more fun!  Thanks.

Yeah this is a great play along!

I have it on my ipod & do mouthpiece buzzing as I'm driving to gigs.

Thanks again Walt!!

Very nice, Walt.

Have to load this onto my iPod. Finally, a practical use for it!

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.

These are great, thank you for posting them.  The playalong is a nice change and the Remington PDF file was helpful to have a more organized warm up for me.

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!

Cool idea. I haven't tried it yet but will do so tomorrow morning. I'm thinking it might be a good way to get my students doing the Remington again. Many Thanks!!!!!!!!

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...
