If you have a full complement of (4) basses, then you can agree with your BBb mate as to who will attempt the pedal notes. I...

    Reading from a lyre I had a similar problem however playing a trombone and wearing bi-focals sure created a difficult challenge. With my music up, I couldn't see to read it.. I did however get a cheap pair of 'music glasses' that were the strength of the reading / close up prescription...
