I've been thinking for a while about putting together a book in pdf format with favorite exercises from all of the members in this forum. Of course, if all of us give me an exercise it will result in an unreadable book due to the size of it...
Is this a good idea?
Are there enough interested participants and contributors for this?
Enough readers/players?

My idea is to somehow collect them and then put them all together for all of us to download.
So, should I go on or just forget it?
All inputs are welcome.

Maybe this has been done in the past prior me joining this forum, if so, please forgive me.

Sounds like a great idea to me! A bunch of great trombone players contributing their best practice methods... I definitely know I would appreciate this!  Good!

There was a book printed years ago that I think was called 'Practice with the Pro's'. A collection of tips and exercises from top players of the day. There was another compiled a few years ago along similar lines.
Always room for another, if someone (Tobbe) is prepared to put in the hard work.

Chris are you willing to contribute with a favorite, or as you spell it in UK, favourite exercise?

Yeah, Practice With The Experts by Paul Tanner. I have a copy (and no, it's not for sale)

It featured great L.A. studio players, like Dick Nash, Frank Rosolino, Tommy Pederson, etc.

I also have a copy of the Paul Tanner "Complete Method" for trombone, with exercises based on the ones from "Experts"

That's a great freakin' book.

I'll contribute quotes like these:

"If you wanna play high notes then practice playing high notes"

"Shake hands, smile and thank the guy who hired ya"

"Yes, I play bass trombone, too"

......

My favorite method of warming up is taking a trumpet and seeing how many high notes I can play!!!!

Followed by 3 1/2 hours of Oboe practice.

But in all seriousness, this sounds like a wonderful idea.

This is Tobbe's baby.... and I don't want to end up as a baby snatcher  :D :D. I'll have to think what my fav exercise is... that's hard.... if I could only pass on one thing.... it might be that the real secret is that there is no secret.  :D :D

What, you mean we should all just practice long tones, lip slurs and scales with good time, pitch and sound, then some melodic exercises to work on phrasing and musicianship?

Thanks for sending the book Dave, this seems to be an outstanding ressource of very good exercises!

Hey, I would be more than happy to put some time, and some of my webspace, into a community book of the trombone forum! So Tobbe let me know when the project begins!

So...

For you to send me a favorite exercise (or favorite excersises) of yours here's the mail address to use...
info@basstrombone.info
I prefer to get them either in pdf format or sibelius (version 4).

Hope this will give a few tips to us all.

I will contribute with one or two exercises myself.

So give me a mail with your "music" and when done, reply in this topic so more people will have the chance to get their pdf-copy when I'm done editing.

Tobbe, I'll send you my favorite buzzing exercise.

My favorite exercise on the horn is exactly like the one from Harry Betts in practice with the experts!
