    Just wondered if anyone had any unused copies of the "Soloists Companion" and "Wright and Rounds Complete Method" lying around.
    I know someone who could make very good use of them.
    If any of you guys wants to sell either/both of them PM me please.
    Cheers,
    - Wilkie

    Which of the Soloist's Companion volumes are you looking for? Any particular solo?

    Blimey ! - I thought there was only one.
    Thinking back to my long distant youth. I recall it contained amongst others, "Old Kentucky Home, "Weideker", "La Belle Americaine", "Playmates" duet.
    I'm also trying to lay hands on a published book of Solo Cornet parts including Arthur Woods "Three Dale Dances" and the Cornet Solo "Zanette".
    I can't remember the title of the publication, but it had a yellow cover - not much to go on there !
    I last saw a copy of it about 1965.
    Any guidance appreciated.

    - I actually bought my copy on eBay! (... and also Wright & Round's Artistic Soloist written by William Rimmer).

    They are all still available from Wright and Round as far as I know, they are not all that expensive. Even cheaper if you buy them from me! ;)

    Oo that's interesting :D Do you have the Complete Method in stock Dave? Mine is in lots of pieces, I've been thinking I should probably try and track down another.
