    New Flugel signing at Black Dyke

    All the best Alex, cant believe the **** being spouted about changing bands. I do it frequently. You would think you were leaving Rangers to play for Celtic with all the bile being spouted. Get a life the lot of you as it's got nothing to do with any of you what she does to be honest.

    Carnegie Contest - Who's Going

    I dont think the hall has anything to do with it John. The timing of the contest just a month after the Scottish and a month before Blackpool hits a few bands, and also the prize money doesnt make it attractive;)

    Alcohol Issues: what do people feel?

    I know a few guys who always have a wee nip before going on to calm their nerves. To my shame I was depping with a band who were drawn near the end of a 20 strong entertainment contest and my own band were drawn number 1. I was playing top cornet for both bands but ended up having half a dozen...

    Would you move over for a better player?

    I'd move if they were better and also more commited but would get seriously miffed if they then never turned up. ps- I havnt a clue what Annie's post is about:D

    Plastic mouthpieces!!

    Cut some slack, I'd say the way you replied to the lass was outrageous:mad:

    Sold/Expired How much is Besson 600 Cornet BE622 worth?

    Disregard the mutes and mouthpieces as they are honestly irrelevant and ask for £400

    Changing Instrument due to ill health

    Sorry to hear that but tell the band you can only play Bass on contests etc and cant do marching jobs with it. I bet you will be offered another instrument on the marching jobs as bands are always short.

    First World War Music

    Great piece, why would it not be suitable? Played it in Germany on a tour this year and it went down a storm:) Under a double eagle but not sure of the year.

    The Complete Conductor??

    Craig Anderson is shaping up to be one of the best out of the new ones in MHO with his easy going style at rehearsals and a fantastic ear for detail which would put some of the so-called big names to shame but Ray Farr is probably the top man for me, although Russell Grays record must take some...

    NCBBA Entertainments Contest - Forfar

    What a Crass comment from someone who cant even say who they are. I hate comments made from posters who hide behind annonimity(spelling) as they mean nothing to the majority of members. It should be made a rule to include a name and a band to stop all this mouthing off :mad: In my opinion Graham...

    tMP presents: The World's Favourite Test Pieces 2006 - The Results

    Great work Dyl:clap: Sad to see one of my faves fall down (Plantagenets) but it is no surprise to see a lot of new pieces in the chart as trends and tastes change. I'm surprised Journey into Freedom was still the top choice though.:confused:

    Vibrato or No Vibrato? that is the Question

    Im afraid I always play with too much vib as I like it, but when told not to I start to sound like a trumpet player. I agree with Alan who posted above that it should be varied but to me a cornet player without vib is like Roast Beef without mustard(for the want of a better phrase):D ps - or...

    4BR Commentary - General Opinions Here

    Well said, I've been told in the past to play in a certain way because the adjudicator dislikes bands to play loud and have done as requested along with the rest of the band. At the end of the day you should play as directed and if you get a result great but if not there is always another day...
