    Life has its little speed bumps!

    It's unfortunate that this individual has chosen to react to you in such a maner. :-( A few years when I started playing again (started in the 3rd section as well) I had a similar experience with a section leader/1st chair player. Like some of the other guys have mentioned, let your playing be your response to him. I did and now, after three years and alot of practice, I'm the guy in the 1st chair. :oops: As for my Mr. Attitude, turns out he was like that with everyone. He never did talk to me and quit comming to rehearsals about the time I started getting the lions share of solo work. I guess what I'm trying to say is that some people are speed bumps. You slow down, get over them and move on.

    BTW the guy who sits next to me in two of the groups I play in has a Silver Flair from about the same era as yours. I'd probably give my left one to get that one on my list! :evil:

    I play 1st chair in Wind Ensemble, and 3rd in Advanced Jazz. I'm pretty content playing 3rd in Jazz, considering none of the other trumpets can solo (or even want to).

    So yeah, the 1st chair in Jazz has a bit of an ego thing, but so do I (because of my soloing.

    It's funny how you get an ego and you don't even notice it. I've gotten into a couple heated arguments because of it.

    Don't make the same mistake!
