    Whats the funniest thing anyone ever said about your playing?? A couple of years ago, I had a solo in church, and a young man, a teenager,I think, complimented me on my playing,_and he said," you have a nice vibrato!", except he pronounced it vee-br-A-to(long A) that cracked me up!!! Lets read your stories!!:lol:

    I was playing once and afterwards, a little boy approached me and stated that he played the trumpet. I asked, "Do you play like I do?" and he replied, "I used to." ROFL

    A girl came up to our college jazz combo during a gig and asked if we could play 'Copa Cabana.'

    me:"that's cheese."
    her: "everything you're playing is cheese."

    I had an old guy tell me I sounded great after church one Sunday. I thanked him and noticed as he walked away, he was wearing hearing aids!:oops:

    During a rehearsal (2 trumpets and organ) a priest walked up and said: "That was so beautiful I almost peed my pants!"

    We were just finishing In The Mood with a 17 piece big band when a woman came up and asked if we knew any 'swing music'. I don't know if that was humbling or pitiful.
