Could this happen to you? http://www.shout.net/~jmh/articles/cheeks.html
So... who's going to use THAT picture as an avatar :shock:
wow if thats what happens to brass players thank god im a percussionist
What happened to Dizzy Gillespie then?
I believe this almost as much as the exploding head Trumpet guy story.
Shaving must be a nightmare!!! And once he has had surgery he is going to start playing again :shock:
Everyone join in .....
"Do your cheeks hang low, do they waggle to and fro......."
.....Can you tie them in a knot, can you tie them in a bow.....
Are you sure? Play percussion for too many years and your arms stretch till your knuckles drag on the floor :lol: :lol: :wink: :wink:
I thought that's how we sorted the percussionists from the brass players in the first place! :twisted: :lol:
Play Tuba and your knuckles drag anyway!! Its the prime qualification for the instrument surely?? :shock: :shock: :shock:
Now I can see why my first teacher advised me to never puff my cheeks out :shock:
... can you toss them over your shoulder like a regimental soldier.....
(Not quite the same version I learnt on the band coach when I was 12 Steve, but close enough!)
I think that article deserves a :wow !!
Very scary! Glad my teacher told me not to blow my cheeks out too!!!
Reminded me of someone i saw at the area though (not that their cheeks were saggy but they really, really puffed out when they played)
Was a good player though. must be tiring to play like that don't you think?
And so it has now been sent to the majority of the band players i was with and also the brass playing people on my contact list!! Muhaha!
!!! That looked disgusting! Hope it never happens to me!!!
Looked a bit fake though...
What 'cheeks' are we talking about here? I mean, imagine if you blew so hard that your butt cheeks exploded! (Gags abound like 'You're playing's ***t and you know it is' spring to mind....) Maybe some bum notes were involved. Worth recording for posterity, I reckon..... It's what happens when you play bottom cornet, I suppose.
I'll get me coat.....
I knew a 'cellist once...................................................
