Just to say a hello from me as I'm new in here. As you can guess I'm a trombone player who loves the instrument! I came back to playing after a gap of 33 years believe it or not. I used to play trumpet/cornet locally. I guess I picked up the wrong instrument to start with 33 years ago, because now I've got a hold of a trombone, I can't put the thing down!! I have a whizz of a teacher who knows the brass world inside out. Well, just wanted to introduce myself. I wonder if there are any other trombone players out there who are in love with theirs too? Cheers, Bonelover.
