Haha, i can give you all high note envy, i can play a ridiculously high Bb(the Bb above the treble cleff, i guess that would be like 7 lines above the staff) I also play trumpet though, so i guess im sorta cheating.

it`s funny though.. i hear you guys talk about these crazy high notes... all well and good.. but.
a guy i work with can play really high like you. higher than me, anyway. but the problem is,you get him over a G above the staff and his power starts to diminish rapidly, little control over tone and intonation. sure, he can play a super high Bb, but if we played a high c together ,i`d blow him away.
i consider a note part of my range if i can play it reliably, with power (very much a requirement for what i do), and at the end of a four hour show.

You nailed it, Steve, hence my earlier comment.

It really does not matter how high you can play, if you can`t use it. Sure, I can play the Bb 2 octaves up from tuning Bb. But can I use it well and confidently in any situation, at the end of said gig, in any style, dynamic, articulation, or speed? Um, not really.

Don`t worry about how high you can play, it really is irrelevant. Work on relevant things. Tone quality, power, flexability, intonation, slide speed, and clarity are plenty for us to brag about.

I would much rather be in a conversation about how "loud" you can play, rather than high. Leave the high crap for the big headed trumpet players....
