Yes, the Michael Davis books are quite good. I appreciate the free post here.

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.

This looks like fun; but being a relative novice, I can't figure how to use it.

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
