Everyone that thinks it';s hard, it';s really not. I finished mastering it in a week, and this is only my second year playing trumpet. Just take it slow. I tried to upload myself playing it but it didn';t work

You guys think THIS is complicated. Look up "Moto Perpetuo". Much, much harder than this. This (personally) is an exercise: a big humongous chromatic scale.

I';ve been playing trumpet for 2 years- i';m pretty good and I';m taking this one on. This year for solo ensemble night I made it 3 levels higher than anyone expected me to go- this year I';m going for state champion with this song- I already have it down at three fourths the actual time and still have half a year to go. I';ll post a recording when I finish getting this down.

Wish Me Luck!
