From Gregg Popovich (coach of the NBA San Antonio Spurs):

“I’ve been amazed and disappointed by so much of what this President had said, and his approach to running this country, which seems to be one of just a never-ending divisiveness. But his comments today about those who have lost loved ones in times of war and his lies that previous presidents Obama and Bush never contacted their families, is so beyond the pale, I almost don’t have the words.”

“This man in the Oval Office is a soulless coward who thinks that he can only become large by belittling others. This has of course been a common practice of his, but to do it in this manner – and to lie about how previous presidents responded to the deaths of soldiers – is as low as it gets.  We have a pathological liar in the White House: unfit intellectually, emotionally, and psychologically to hold this office and the whole world knows it, especially those around him every day. The people who work with this President should be ashamed because they know it better than anyone just how unfit he is, and yet they choose to do nothing about it. This is their shame most of all.”

Perhaps have a look at this video with Slide Hampton. It's quite fast though and the camera doesn't really picture it precisely.

To move the slide out, throw the slide with a thumb and catch with your fingers. Vice versa for moving the slide in. Throwing does not mean getting your hand completely out of line with the slide.

No of course not, I wasn't thinking that, but how is that beneficial? Surely as soon as you had to play any sort of fast passage you would be working harder and have less chance of being precise with where you stop the slide?

I guess what I am having trouble understanding is that if you don't have complete control the entire time over how the slide moves, you are just making it harder for yourself Surely? How do you have complete control over the slide if there are consistent movements where the slide is not always connected to your own movement?

Would you care to elaborate on this?

Would you care to elaborate on this? I am having a difficult time imagining how I would do this or what it would even look like. I make a point of staying in contact 100% of the time with the slide as I am playing. I practice exercises to help me do so.
Surely throwing the slide takes away some if the precision? Unless I have misunderstood what you mean. I am keen to try it, if I know exactly how to do it effectively.

Throw the slide, don't push it. There is no reason to maintain physical contact with the slide at all times, in case you're doing that. You just need to throw it and then catch it at the end position. No matter whether you use wrist or elbow.

The Rath set up is certainly gettable in North America, but I find it has the effect you describe from the Bullet Brace or Ax Handle.

The Leather Specialties strap (same design as the Yamaha but works better for me) has not bent any of my slides. I use it 100% of the time.

What happens if I miss?  If I throw the slide into seventh position, I am catching it with fingertips.  How do I prevent the occasional embarrassing mishap?

Would you please post the link pertaining to what I have highlighted in red? I believe it is a concept that escapes about 95% or more of trombone players; even those who claim to have a supple slide technique.

...Geezer

This is the video I was watching, Their bass trombonist moves a lot like me.
