    Thanks for posting, Dave. I am, by the way, feeling much less like an idiot (find other post where I confessed to being an idiot because of my blunder about the order for playing the service songs)....

    Mine is also about 50/50 and a tad off center as well, but just a tiny bit, and same reason as Rick - due to my teeth structure.. Finding the "right" position and percentage of upper and lower lip...

    Well, I'm still an idiot, but maybe just a part-time idiot. Take a look here:

    Egads! I think I am losing it or have lost it!! You are absolutely right, Dave. The Army is first. We play the Armed Forces Medley every November on our concert. And the Army is always first. I...

    That was catchy, but being a traditionalist and retired Army guy, I would have to say that I prefer the services official songs be played straight. The order of precedence was sort of ignored, I...

    Now I feel like a grouch, sorry!! On an annoyance scale from 1 to 10 with 1 being very little, it was about a .01. I'm a little embarrassed.
  10. Thanks Dave - You fixed an annoying thing!!

    Up until today, used to be every time you went to a new page on the forum and got ready to click something, the page then loaded a bunch of icon links to things like Facebook, Twitter, etc. (I...
  11. Here is a First - Played it so Much it Broke!

    Well, I just had a first in all my 55 years of playing euphonium. I was practicing this evening and at about the 1 1/2 hour mark, I noticed my first valve was not returning to the full upright...

    Now I have to admit I didn't think this was possible. I truly thought air needed to be blown from your body into the horn. I tried to play a note on my horn by sucking, and almost passed out while...

    Get well, my friend. At least with this crappy coronavirus going around, perhaps you wouldn't be going many places, so good time to recuperate. Sure sorry to see you have to go through this.

    That sure seems like a better solution. The municipal band I play in during the summer does all of its concerts outdoors. The band plays in a band shell and the audience sits out in the open air. ...

    I wonder what the Air Force knows (or doesn't know) that the other services don't know (or know).

    I saw a commercial on the tube with John Elway (former Denver Broncos quarterback), and he had some sort of finger malady. I think it was Dupuytren's Contracture. Do you know what your condition...

    The fingerings for a Bb tuba are the same as for a euphonium. The difference being that the tuba is written an octave down from the euphonium. So for a euphonium bass clef C in the staff, that...

    Other makers include a bag as well, my Adams came with one. I frankly don't use it. I remember Brian Bowman had a bag with his euphonium in the early to mid 1970's. He used it. I think that was...

    I think you are on to something, John. I played the David "Concertino in F" for trombone on the euphonium with an orchestra accompaniment. I really like that type of arrangement. More and more...

    I own an Adams E3, very good top line horn. It is my main instrument and I suspect will be indefinitely. I also own a Wessex Dolce euphonium for about 1/10 the cost of my Adams. It is a very nice...
