Is it just me or does anyone else wonder how playing a brass instrument with facial hair doesn't bother some people?? I've tried it and not only does it hurt, but you can't stop air escaping either. I don't get it. (How they do it that is, not facial hair!) And incidentally, if any females have any comments to make; 1. "Immac" or electrolysis, and 2. Good, glad to hear your opinions too!! No offence intended at all to anyone of any gender who may or may not have facial hair, it just puzzles me how it's done.
