I recently purchased Malcolm McNab's "Principles of Exceptional Trumpet Playing" video from Michael Davis' Hip Bone Music. It's basically a half-hour of Macolm McNab explaining and demonstrating Stamp's exercises and concepts. Here's the link:

http://www.hip-bonestore.com/Principles_of_Exceptional_Trumpet_Playing_p/hbu020.htm

This was the best $4.95 I've spent in a long time! It's great to hear such a world-class player talk about and play through the material, and the video contained several ideas and distinctions regarding Stamp-stuff that I hadn't come across before.

I highly recommend it!

Was thinking about it, but was wondering if there was a lot of buzzing?

Eric - quite a bit of buzzing. Great great lesson.


I think I've bought almost every lesson from hip bone music. I can't thank Michael enough for putting these out there.

My favourite lesson was the Nick Marchione lesson on lead playing. What a sound and player.. I got a LOT from that!

Wayne says a lot of great things about aperture and playing.

All in all, check them all out... 4.95...ive spent more on a COFFEE!!!

I've purchased a few of them now and the McNab one has been the most helpful by far. He explains things very clearly. Very cool. The best 5 bucks you can spend on trumpet related things in my opinion.

Thanks, I plan to. It's not the money, just the time.
And Michael is a good friend of mine! We grew up together in San Jose.

I was lucky enough to take a couple of lessons from Malcolm. Super nice guy, always interested in what I was going through, what I was up to, and funny, we never played pedal tones, but buzzed plenty. His sound is so centered and on the money, it's phenomenal, which I didn't hesitate to mention to him. Turns out, he now spends much of his time refining his sound. His actual tone. Everything seems to come from that. That was a lesson in itself.

Did he mention anything specific that he does for this or is he going through his normal routing with the goal in mind?

Are these shipped on DVD, or a download link after the purchase?

There's a download link after purchase, but it's not automatically generated. It took a couple of days (over the weekend) for it to hit my inbox.

Oh no of course I understand that, I was just exclaiming that literally I've spent more on coffee!

Looking forward to seeing more!

EXACTLY!! I wish he would have practiced things that are "actually playing the trumpet" and that he didn't do these silly time wasting endeavors. I mean honestly, he could have been a prolific TH poster if he could have only practiced "actually playing the trumpet" like Claude would have wanted. Like pedal tones. I do so many gigs where all I'm asked to play are pedal tones but I have to defer because they want pedal tones AND a wild thing, both of which I can't provide.

Sarcasm mode over: I learned a lot from the Malcolm McNab lesson, and also waste my time by buzzing daily. I know this isn't for everyone, but it works for me, in moderation and that's the key. See what works, and don't proclaim for fact that nothing else is the way and is a waste of time, because it may work for someone - within reason.

Malcolm, you are the trumpet player in the movies that made me love the instrument so much, and you are much more - I have your CD's. Incredible musician. You and Maurice Murphy. MM & Star Wars is also an indelible memory.

Mike
