    I've noticed the growing trend towards listing every band / position people have played for / in in their signature and wondered: If we all did it, who would have the longest signature?

    1994-2003.... Wem Jubilee band, having sat on every cornet seat for some amount of time! (except third man down I think)



    plus an array of school bands, productions and NYBB for a year and YABB

    Think I lose the competition!

    No. It would just be humiliating and unnecessary :oops:
    Besides, you're a flute and viola player!!??!!??:shock: :shock: :shock:
    OK, I'll come out too. I played the recorder for a lot longer than I need have, and then moved onto a penny whistle. I have never played the piccolo, that's just a nasty rumour.

    I'm sure some people who have been in banding lots of years and deped for many bands could reel off most of the bands in their area and beyond and have a massive list. Maybe we should have limited this section to brass alone :lol:
