    Advantages of being an Eb Soprano Player
    Have you ever noticed how the soprano player is always located on the outside of the band, closest to the audience. This is good for many reasons:

    1. If there is a fire you can make it to the door in time instead of being toast like the BBbs.

    2. Nobody sits behind you honking in your ear.

    3. If the solo cornets get mouthy you can direct a chastening blast beyond the pain threshold.

    4. If you are hitting a really good high C you can turn toward the audience slightly and let it rip.

    5. You can get out and to the parking lot after the concert faster.

    6. Lots of room to your right for mutes, water bottles, cornet stands and a little table for your beer.

    7. Being up front usually suits the soprano players ego.

    8. If necessary you can give a disapproving glance to anyone in the band without the MD noticing.

    9.If you have to go to the washroom bad you can get there first at the break.

    10. same as #10 but you get to the bar first.

    11. same as #10 but you get to the free food and coffee/tea first.

    12. It's as far away as you can get from the Bass Trombone.

    As far away from the Soprano Cornet as possible

    I think the major adavantage of being a sop player is that you can look like you've just been slapped in the gob after everytime you play and people don't care.

    seemingly all of those advantages can be applied to the first trombone player as well with a bit of adapting!

    Yeah and we don't have to play all those anurism enducing high twiddly bits either. Solo Trom is clearly the best position in band.

    Sop player

    Ladies and gentlemen in what way does item 4 of this post confer an advantage? More opportunities? Is he ambidextrous?

    Advantages of being a soprano cornet player

    No-one's after your job.

    You don't have to fight over where to put the music.

    You don't have to read tiny split parts.

    You join in with arguments on the front row only when you feel like it.

    Wouldn't swap it for the world!!
