Name players you know that plays off-centre such as Richard Marshall or Sergei Nakariakov.
Looks like you've just named them...
Christiano Ronaldo! He Plays off the Centre!
(Sorry it just sprang to mind when I read the tittle on tmp home page)
Don't worry about it.
Not any more!!!
No, but he did!
The first great British Jazz Trumpeter, Nat Gonella, played off centre and many young players at the time copied him.
Digby Fairweather plays very sucessfully with his mouthpiece somewhere close to his right ear....
Are you serious?
Decide for yourself, here.
Yup.... you gotta play where your teeth tell you to...
I've played alongside Digby many times and marvelled at how he does it....
Played with Nat Gonella too but only after he'd given up playing Trumpet and was only singing but what a guy !!
Doh! I thought this was a football position, or a variation on the offisde rule...! :hammer
I remember Bill Houghton (Former Principal Trumpet LSO) demonstrating how he played using only top lip and tongue by playing with his tie in his mouth - over his bottom lip... Triple tongueing no problem. Scary !!
The lead trombone with the U.S, Air Force jazz band (Forgot the Name) pulls to the side, and increases the pull in the high range.
Digby plays almost out of the corner of his mouth:
I'm sure ill get shot down for this but Richard Marshall does not play off-centre!! :frown:
What's the name of that ex-YBS principal? Great player - never done him any harm.
Stuart Lingard! amazing player :clap:
Get to 36:00 and you can see for yourself.
Separate names with a comma.
