Better Finger Facility With The Plunger Mute! | Trumpet Q&A #1

Welcome to the 1st episode of Trumpet Q&A with Bryan Davis. Following on from “H for Hands“, in the Trumpet A-Z series, Claudio Flabiano had a question about the correct right hand position, and keeping the fingers moving freely, when playing with the Plunger Mute. Bryan has some tips on playing onehanded for any reason, and for practicing your plunger technique too!

Unfortunately, “Plunger Techniques” by Al Grey and Mike Grey is out of print, at this time. If we learn that that has changed, we’ll update this with a link.
