Would you take the gig on not knowing what might be asked of you?

I know plenty of people who say they can play various instruments,but when it actually comes to cutting it they can't.

This comes from someone who can and does!!

All the best.

would make sure i knew what i was getting myself into to be honest, most of my gigs come from people who know me and my capabilities though.
Neil's pretty good at Euph/Bari cause he used to play cornet so he knows fingering etc. and the mouthpiece size is roughly the same as bass trom. it's just his tone that's half decent, so honestly i'd say solo bari/euph would be out the question!!
