Hello! Welcome to TB, who are you?

    Let's see. The thread topic is Hello! Welcome to TB, who are you? and, on a long page full of posts, not one (including myself) dealing with welcoming new members.

    My read of the introductory post is it's not just about new members but also about seasoned members as well. Please read the first post closely.

    I did read the post. My point is not about who can share background info. It is about a whole page of superfluous comments. Sometimes it's a matter of knowing how much is too much and showing some restraint.



  • @BigDub Iowa. Nobody hates Iowa.

    @BigDub - incorrect. The breeds were named after the province, not vice versa.

    Did I say otherwise? If I implied otherwise it wasn’t intended.
    It would be pretty dumb to think a country would name a province or state after a dog breed, just saying.

    Well, if you read this thread, you’ll know who we are. A bunch of prototypical trumpet players who have nothing better to do than argue on line...

    Argue? As a trumpet player, I see this more as performing duets.



  • Hello from Wisconsin, the land of breezes, freezes, and cheeses. My friends call me Stephan, other people use different terms.

    Unfortunately I registered & posted before introducing myself. Too eager to ask my question, I guess. Anyway, here's the intro.

    I began on cornet in 1962 during 7th grade at the age of 11. Put my Bundy cornet in its case after graduating in 1968. Have played on & off since then.

    Took a few lessons in college, some of which used a couple pages of Peters "Total Range." Using the first sections works as a good warm up.

    I have more instruments than good sense: 4 Bb trumpets including a rotary & a pocket, 3 Bb cornets, C trumpet & cornet, Eb trumpet, piccolo trumpet, Bb slide trumpet. Also own an assortment of miscellaneous wind instruments including (gasp) a clarinet, Furst-Pless horn, bugle, cornetto, didgeridoo, alto horn, euphonium, fluglehorn, shofar, natural trumpet, replica Egyptian trumpet, recorder, various keyed harmonicas, etc. Whew! They range in quality from pro to near TSO. None of which I'm very good at.

    I have a similarly large collection of (dusty) method books. None of which have enabled me to be a good player.

    My wife has stayed by my side for 48 years while I was a factory worker, Bible college student, missionary, and pastor. She even likes my trumpet playing!

    I'm in a wonderful situation. I have lots toys and people excuse my odd behavior and lack of skills to my age. Kind of like when I was two.

    You're not alone. The "N+1" affliction is pervasive here. 😉

    various keyed harmonicas,

    I play chromatic harmonica, too.

    It sounds like you have great one. 🙂

    Welcome to TB.
