Hey folks, I played trumpet from 5th grade through college. I was a music major on trumpet, but always played bass for fun. Since I had to "work" at playing the trumpet, bass was a real release. Over the years I've met quite a few fellow bass players that also played trumpet. So here's my thinking, trumpet was normally the melody instrument in marching and concert programs. I was always attracted to the bass section because they always had the counter part, and that always seemed to be the "cool" part. Grass is always greener I guess. Are there many bass/trumpet players out there. Is my theory sound, are there a lot of trumpet players that were attracted to bass the same way?
