    For me it's Gaz Daniel at Black Dyke Band. Not only for his playing ability, but he is pretty good looking too!

    What do you think?

    For me, it has to be Howard Bowes of Harlesden and the ISB and I'm not just saying that because I'm in the ISB!
    Howard has sat adjacent to me for 6 or 7 years and I've hardly heard a mistake from him all this time!
    I recall, in particular, his triple tonguing in Kevin Norburys's Partita and his tremolando in Eric Ball's Song of Courage.

    Super player, top bloke too!

    The guy from YBS must be pretty handy...I think he was 2nd Euph at one point.

    i agree!

    I agree with carl! Great player! Great Bloke! The trills in Song of Courage stand out for me! He just plays...nothing flash....its just always in there, always solid! (and he is just as good looking as Gaz Daniel!)

    Sheridan Fryer - Brighouse & Rastrick - gets my vote.

    I used to play in a band where the conductor's "little" (ie younger than him, but this guy was still 40-odd) brother was the 2nd baritone. This could give what he got, and he got every single 2nd baritone joke under the sun, and then some. But he always had something to back with, including for his brother!!

    I think it's me at Hudders Uni Brass Band ... :p

    Nah, to be honest I haven't got a clue, the 2nd baritone part is never obvious enough to be recognised (although it should be).

    There are loads of class 2nd bari players. Ciaran is a mint player. Mike Walsh at YBS is class. Sheridan is a legend, as is Cliff Hopes.

    And I have to say my boyfriend Lee who plays for Imps, he's a really good player and I'm not just saying that!

    There's too many to mention but they never get the praise they deserve!!

    The legend that is Sheridan is the all conquering 2nd Bari. Experience and wealth of musical knowledge carries the way!

    It's a lovely compliment Mark, but it doesn't say much for my playing!! Lee's a pretty boy though, aww. x
