    To my shame I have thrown my horn against the wall,that wasn't real smart ,cost me money to get it fixed.Better to put the horn down and relax a bit.

    Which would leave me at a throwing rate of 4 days out of seven
    in my practice room in the basement.:roll:
    Provided you do not live in some cylindrical ivory tower,
    tat might be your ratio too.
    But then, I still can resist!:D

    As I recall from reading a book about him Maynard once threw his horn against a wall. He was young and playing the Haydn Concerto, nailed the E and chucked his horn, breaking it into several pieces. His teacher turned to his father (both were present) and said that he'll be one heck of a trumpet player. Or something along those lines, it's been a few years since I read the book. But he was probably feeling a different emotion at the time!

    May i add that i have never actually thrown my horn against the wall? Maybe i should rephrase my question to: Anyone ever get frustrating while practicing? is that better for some of you taking this so seriously? Getting frustrated is normal. I mean only if your human of course.

    I've felt frustrated while practicing, I'm sure everyone has gotten frustrated while practicing. For myself anyways that is one of the draws to playing, getting the opportunity to play something technical enough that I get a little frustrated and try even harder to play it. That makes accomplishing the section I am attempting all the more sweet once I get it down.

    If there is someone who hasn't gotten frustrated while practicing I don't think they are really getting everything they can from playing, as they haven't pushed themselves.
