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

    I thought that's how we sorted the percussionists from the brass players in the first place! :twisted: :lol:

    ... can you toss them over your shoulder like a regimental soldier.....
    :lol:

    (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.....
