That would be me. Trying not to get caught up in the gear acquisition thing. I find music theory way more interesting than gear . . . . uh, well except for vintage synths . . . . and, uh, maybe a Martin Comm. A nice drum kit would be nice though, ahh, just forget what I said about the gear.

RE: Who want's to teach me a jazzy lick in C Major(ish)?
Thanks! Good stuff. So . . . . . . . after today's lesson, I'm back to focusing on forming the embouchure and angle of the horn. There was a kind of breakthrough today as I reached some unintentional high notes today. I may not be able to reach those notes on demand but they did feel "effortless".
Who want's to teach me a jazzy lick in C Major(ish)?
Ok peeps, I have the C Major scale under my fingers and I can get down to low G (sometimes). Articulation on the low notes is hit or miss.
As my username suggests, I lean toward 50's and 60's jazz as my home listening base. Been digging Woody Shaw lately.
I suppose a major scale may not be best suited for jazz, so tell me what to do!
RE: Rock, Pop, Classic 70's "Horn Bands" from back in the day?
Here is yet another band that employed the Tower of Power brass section but combined with a band that has an amazing Hammond B3 solo. The combination is just amazing:
Oh yeah. Very good!
RE: Favorite Cornet
My 400 is here. Original case, even some literature. Roughly a 1959 model. Lacquer is 80%. Only a very little amount of the bell flattened out. Small fall at one time. Wasn't sitting long enough to have anything stuck either. Certainly very lightly used for a 60 year old cornet. After i get it cleaned up, i will post some pics.
I bet i love it! That might not stop me from putting it on Ebay at a hefty price. We will see.
Can't keep them all......
Would have to build a bigger house;)
Looking forward to the pics.
