    theMouthPiece.com presents for you a . .. . Copyright Issues Fact Sheet

    What is this new Fact Sheet and Copyright FAQ information all about?

    Many threads on theMouthPiece.com discuss the extremely complex subject of Copyright and its many related issues. It is all too apparent that many of us are confused by the governance and laws relating to copyright and the tMP Team felt that we should put together a new tMP Fact Sheet that is freely available to all tMP visitors and members which will hopefully, in plain English, help us understand some of the ins and outs of UK Copyright law. This FAQ and fact sheet has been compiled with the fantastic help and support of several tMP members who are:
    • Philip Sparke
    • Roger Thorne
    • Dave Payn
    • Peter Bale

    ... we are very grateful to each of them for their contribution to this FAQ information. Although the rules of Copyright seem complicated most infringements are done in ignorance rather than with intent. Some of the 'rules' may seem ridiculous from ...

    Welcome back!

    Well... after much trouble and strife, and what seems an age - at long last we're back.

    Sincere apologies to you all for the major outage, but you'll be pleased to know we are running on a new server, with new software and there will be no more security issues, or virus's for anyone - we're back, and we're clean.

    You will most likely notice that we are on a new version of the software that powers tMP, which is the very latest incarnation of vBulletin vB 4.1.5 - so you might have to take some time to familiarise yourselves with the controls and settings are etc... I am still working my way through it all and finding this out by the way!

    If you have any issues, or if you you spot something that is missing from before or is currently not working well, please post this in the How-to forum, and we will do our best to fix it - though given the items we already have listed to fix, this might take a little time.

    So, many thanks to you all for hanging in there, and my sincere apologies for the outage.

    To continue to the forums, click on the 'Forum' tab in the bar near the top of the screen, or follow this link.

    Bass question

    Thread Starter: kiwiinoz

    Hi there. Can someone tell me the big difference between the e flat sound and b flat sound. In our band the b flats are an 'issue' and maybe just not up to making a nice sound and e flats peddle easier with a much nicer tone. Maybe just player issues but I have often wondered what the difference is...

    The Harder Chairs to ‘fill’.

    Thread Starter: 2nd tenor

    It seems that some bands have difficulty getting Bass players, others Cornets and others again Trombone players. Perhaps those bands are victims to local shortages or perhaps the problem is more widespread. Additionally some chairs are more difficult for the players themselves to ‘fill’: I wouldn’t...

    SEWBBA one grading system.

    Thread Starter: 007ish

    South East Wales Brass Band Association decide to have only one, the National, grading system. Very surprised that even though this proposal has been passed by the SEWBBA at the AGM, that there has been no discussion on here. Does everyone think it is a positive and the right thing to do, see it...

    Bass question

    Lets settle this once and for all. Tuba's are the biggest instrument and therefore the best and therefore the hardest to play.

    Bass question

    It seems to me that to some extent offence could be being taking when non was intended. I know Solo Cornet players who used to play BBb and Bass Tombone,
