    OK, the list of horns is like the elephant in the room - nobody wants to address the real truth...
    The real issue is this. The signature block is like an online version of AA. Here we stand up in front of the group and say, "My name is xxxxx. I suffer from the 'N+1 Virus'. Here are my symptoms. Please help me."

    It's pretty simple, really.:oops:

    I don't really care what they put in their signatures. I don't use one, but sometimes when I see the answers I see and then what they play it gives me a hint as to why they answer as they do.

    Good for you. Get started early. That way, you have the best chance of wining (according to Peter, anyway):

    I never thought of that. BUT... I have to ask how you've tried even the majority of horns on signatures to know how they play enough to understand why people with that horn would answer the way they do. I mean, sometimes I come across a signature that has brands of horns I don't even know ( or very expensive horns, like Monette, that I've never tried). If you really do know most of those horns though, kudos to you, I've always liked trying out new horns too, even though mine works for me and I wouldn't have the money to buy another one even if it felt better. ; )
