We usually have to listen to the conductor's tiresome praise of the euphs though :(

Just looking at the last couple of posts:-

why not just talk to each other at your band-saves squabbling for the world?

Besides whos squabbling :dunno ?
We're agreeing, something that only happens once or twice a year so we might as well make it a public occasion :lol:

Especially annoying is when the conductor asks for something (i.e. shorter or louder) and the players do this to a ridiculous extreme. This seems to wind conductors up no end, as I witnessed tonight!

I heard 10 once... was depping for a band, got drunk before the concert because the flugel player annoyed me, and proceeded to rip through the concert... however, the conductor was deaf in his right ear, and having heard a trombone for the first time in 20 years wanted MORE MORE MORE!!!

You ever get invited back Mr Lynch? I never got a call after that day either!

More that you'll (mostly) never hear a conductor say:

'Sop, that was a cracking split! Do another one!' (I often did when playing sop, whether asked or not!)

'Baritones, your tuning has been exemplary all evening. Well done!'

'Could we have a little more vib on that, euph?'

'Sorry, guys, I ****ed up the beat, there.'

'The drinks are on me' (n.b. I know MRSH to be an honourable exception to that one! ;-)

Think you might have heard the penultimate one here on more than one occasion recently AND I bought you a pint last week!

Was on my best behaviour, and very sober for me. Not my fault she offered me her euph to play instead of her!!

So you did! I was referring more to me! Ha! ;-)

By the way, I'll try not to fall off that top C in Partita tonight, like I did last week! (That would have been a great one for W.Rimmer's brass bloopers website!)
