For the techs out there

Something to make you laugh. Here's what we flute players do to instruments at the other end of the sonic spectrum...

OMG Joe! I love it. The last blooper clip where the Sousa got hung in the tree was priceless. The only thing missing there was you should have taken a club and played Sousa piñata while it was hanging there. :P

That's what they're for right? That's at least what we thought at Red Wing... Last week of classes, those who were graduating got to have a celebratory picnic. A sousaphone and a euphonium were our victims of choice. No trebuchet though...

It puzzled me until I realized that is how you get whisper tones on deeper brass instruments.

Bit of a belated response but I love the new look fluteland forum and Message Board guys. Even the font looks great. Took me a few secs to look around but Quicklinks is neat and tidy. Great job =)


Thanks for the blooper post ... so now we know where the tech schools like Red Wing get their fresh cadavers from... pity the next intake. :wink:
