Between dealing with y'all and sitting next to trombonists, I chose dropping out of classical music altogether.

 

:D

 

 

 

 

 

 

No, seriously. :mad:

No, it's a Rudi. He hates the Westons.

 

I do, too. They sound like ass. But far louder. Which I guess is why they're popular. But that just means that everybody sounds like ass these days.

How is this porn? I was expecting juicy closeups of their mouthpieces, keys, and, y'know, right inside the horn.

You can't just start off with the hard stuff. You lure them in with Playtuba first. After a few more of these threads, I can start doing Barely Tuba.

*was wanted for assault*

*said "it weren't my fault"*

 

I pick up one of 'em (I've got a hell of a collection) every once in a while, play for a few minutes, and think to myself, "shit!" I'm going to work to get back in shape on the trumpet by the end of the year.

We're quiet about it, but secretly, all tuba players hate you. Probably because you hunt in packs.

Look at any symphony orchestra. It takes three trombonists to do what one tubist can do alone:

sounds right, no one suspects the tuba players. the huge puddles of drool and spit throw most people off. thats why they put you next to the drummers.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

What's the difference between a tuba player and a frog that can drive a car?

The frog's on his way to a gig.

 

What's the definition of "optimist?"

A tuba player with an appointment book.

 

And, yes, I really DO wish I had taken up the flute, thank you very much.

The Tuba Four

The Tuba Tsars

The Mighty Tubadours

And for the minimalist tuba fan, this sextet:

Tuba!

What's the range of a tuba?

--30 yards if you have a good arm.

 

How did the tuba derive its name?

--It was derived from "tubad", the first sound uttered by a passerby after hearing the instrument played.

Which reminds me of another classic:

 

How do you make a tuba sound like a french horn?

 

Stick your hand in the bell and play a bunch of wrong notes.

Those fuckers couldn't play shit and now they're all playing pro or teaching or at least went to school for it. Is there an easier curve for them or something?
