Hey Guys/Gals, Long time no talk (even though you probably don't remember me). Since my last post I've had to give up playing for a while... or a year. I'm offically in the Army now and I'm stationed with the 101st Airborne Division! The Army has kept me pretty busy going in and out through schools but no more excuses! It's time to play again... though it deeply saddens me that my DCI career is over. But to the matter at hand! Has anything new came out during my absence? I don't have my horn... family misplaced it... but I'm waiting patiently for it... or to buy another. I had a cheap practice mute but I was wondering what's the latest and greatest now. The people here blast their music loud but heaven forbid they hear a trumpet, might cause chaos. Also has any new practice books came out? I had a old copy of Arbans but like my horn it's MIA. Thanks guys!
