    This may or may not be a stupid question. But just take a second and think about it. I was sitting here listening to Jens play Rising Sun and the funniest thought entered my head:

    What do you think would happen if everyone in the world was a trumpet player? :D

    I think that either noone would excel as much as they do today (there wouldn't be people like Jens or Arturo) or people like that would be much more than what they are now.
    OR...everyone in the world would buid up a immunity to headaches.

    Your thoughts :D :D
    (Man this is a stupid topic but I need to promote myself to mezzo forte in the TM ranks - I should really be practicing).

    I think if everyone played trumpet, we would soon adapt to the instrument and it would actualy be part of our bodies! We would learn to literaly speak though the trumpet. For example, if you wanted to say "hello, my name is Ted and I like eating grasshoppers," you would play C4 Eb5 F5 B5 E5 Db5 (hello my name is ted) and then G6 Db6 C6 Bb5 (I like eating) and F#5 G6 C7 (grasshoppers).

    If everyone was a trumpeter, every sentence would get faster and higher towards it's climax.

    Cornet players would be an underclass.

    fife and drum I think is close enough, and bagpipes are a woodwind also, you see those type of groups around too
