    "If it sounds wrong,, resolve it one half step in either direction".

    Spoken by the great jazz euphonium player, Rich Matteson.

    I've been called an artist and the whole arts community disgusts me too, generally speaking.......

    I used to be tolerated in the arts community when I played in the local symphony. Now, I'm an outcast of the arts community where I live. It happened when I started playing with a Civil War brass band. Then came the performance of Dixie in public and it was downhill from there...

    They tolerate me in the local British-style brass band, but hey, it's a brass band, so we're on the ragged fringe of the arts community, anyway...

    It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got no strings...I think that's how the song goes. :lol:

    The American Brass Band should be tolerated, if not embraced. The charter of my local musician's union includes as decoration banners heralding the names of such fine composers as Beethoven, Brahms and Dudley Buck.

    Sorry, this is demonstrably wrong and people should stop teaching it. The modern trumpet is a cornet that's wrapped differently, when you go by how much conical tubing there is.

    The only reliable distinction between a trumpet and a cornet is the mouthpiece it uses.

    I was wondering how long it would take for someone to take the OP to task on that point.

    Rotary trumpets have more cylindrical tubing than pistons.
