That'll let them know that you know the music and aren't just a mindless automaton hammering out notes on a page.

But what if I am one?

Glad you're safe. Your Tornadoes seem a lot fiercer than most of our Cyclones. Ours are a lot bigger in terms of area affected but they move slower which gives people time to prepare for the onslaught. Also our weather tracking people are very good at predicting where they will cross the coast.

Hi All,
This is a great bell! It's easy to play, the
response is excellent, has a lot of core
to the sound and projects like crazy.
Don't let the HW designation fool you.
B1 = Conn Taper
2 = Non Soldered Rim
Y = Yellow Brass
HW = Heavy Weight

No, Grah, they missed me.  They passed 50 miles north.  We had heavy winds that broke large limbs off several trees across the street from my house, though.

I hope everyone is okay after the recent Tornadoes that have ripped through the US state of Texas, killing at least four people and injuring dozens of others.

Billie, I know it's a big state but did they come anywhere near you?

I also read there are severe storms in neighbouring states which left five people dead, including three people killed by flooding and winds in Arkansas, rushing water sweeping away a car and drowning a woman in Missouri, and another death in Mississippi.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected.

Played on three gigs with my brass band gigs, subbed in on a blues gig, and at church this morning....It fit EVERYTHING! Really has a sizzle that I just could not seem to achieve with my other horns....LOVE this thing!

I am a Junior in college studying something completely unrelated, but have kept up trombone as much as I could. Categorically, I would place my self as a "decent college player, nothing special" especially for not having tons of time to practice amidst my studies. I have always been told I have a wonderful sound concept/tone, technique, and sense of musicality. However, ever since high school, I remember being chronically told to play out more. I'm not a timid player, but I feel like I am in general more of an inhibited type, in personality as well. This is something I would like to get better at. I am currently sitting lead in our Jazz Ensemble and feel like I am unable to compensate for our Bass Trombonist (very strong player) or properly sit on top of my section sometimes (same thing happened in high school...another very loud bass player). Even when I feel like I am really projecting, I can barely hear my self on any recording compared to the trumpet or sax sections.

Should I focus more on breathing/lung capacity? Just more practice at higher dynamics? Or is a lot of this just an attitude thing? I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist and get freaked out about messing things up or playing too loud. I don't want the bass player to have to back down...he's a very fine player and isn't by any means blasting. I just feel like I need to be doing my part better.

Sorry if I couldn't get my thoughts together better on this, it's hard to describe.

Do you mean hindemith sonata? If yes, I think the one Mark Lawrence did is fantastic.

This conversation comes up pretty frequently on the forum. Do a search and you should find a good number of threads that have some great responses.

Among other things, personally I think playing a smaller bore trombone is just much harder work in orchestral contexts.... people want to play instruments that make the job easier. Large bore trombones, in my opinion and experience, are just easier to achieve a wider variety of sounds and blend on. Plenty of other reasons but im sure the thread will go in many different directions.
