    You are quite right in how they play the G in the tutorial on Sousa playing style for his marches. I remember seeing that a while back.

    "Happy Memorial Day" is inappropriate. It is a solemn day that honors those in uniform who gave their lives for our country. It might be more appropriate to wish folks a nice long and enjoyable...

    Some of you have offered the advice of trying a Wessex Festivo, a four valve in front compensating horn. The OP has a 4 valve in front horn now and wonders about a 4 valve on top horn, particularly...
