    I believe this almost as much as the exploding head Trumpet guy story.

    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:

    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!

    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.....
