  1. Im pretty new to the bass scene (or whatever you wana call it) but i learn pretty quick. Im in high school band(Im a nerd) and i play tuba, trumpet, french horn, and baritone, so im pretty exposed to music theory. If you ever want to drop me an e-mail, send them to fourstringer73@hotmail.com and i'll be happy to talk music with you!
     
  2. hey, im in high school band too. i also play tuba. although i don't work very hard at it, and up until 7th grade i played trumpet. i started playing my bro bass last year for stage band, then i bought it off him this year. so, im relatively new at bass. play guitar too. what grade are you in and what kinda bass ya got??

    Seeing as you're both relatively new here, welcome aboard! And, in a little bit of pointless trivia, the Who's John Entwistle started off on the trumpet, and he didn't do too bad for himself...

  5. There's a lot of ex-trumpeters on this board, me included. Haven't played in a while, but it's still fun to blast out the In the Mood solo every once in a while...I love playing alone in the basement, the echo sounds sweet.

    Allow me to join the party, as a trumpet starter, that for some reason crossed over to stringed bass.
    Still like the old, chinese brass junk that my less knowing parents bought me for christmas - 1970, sharp!
     
  7. Ex-trumpeter, baritone horn and valve trombone player here as well. I guess that I've been playin' low notes since the 6th grade which was a looongggg time ago!
     
  8. Trumpet here too. Though probably nowhere as good as the rest of you.

    well whadduya know I played trumpet for 3 years in my high school jazz band. That solo from In The Mood always killed me because we played that chart as an encore and my lips were always shot when we played it.
