    Hello my trumpet homie's.
    While doing my 10:00am morning warm up's, I noticed a funny aroma.
    Oh yeah we all know what that is.

    That got me thinking of a list of things that might let you know it's time to clean your horn.
    Sort of like you might be a red-neck...........................

    If you unscrew your bottom valve and the juice falls on your hand and stinks.........You might need to clean your horn!

    If you kiss your girl after playing your trumpet for a while and she say's you taste like metal.....
    You might need to clean your horn.

    anyone else wanna try?

    If you look down your leadpipe and it looks like the Rocky Mountains....
    It might be time to clean your horn!

    If you are stopped by the police and the canine unit dog points at your case......
    It might be time to clean your horn.

    Here's some from a couple of idiots I've had to work with......

    If the players three chairs away can smell your horn, it's time to clean your horn!
    If you try to play and your tuning slide pops out, it's time to clean your horn!

    I'm sick right now, which means on Monday morning I'll be cleaning the germs out of mine!

    I thought we were supposed to blow, not suck!


    You know your horn needs cleaning when you push a valve down and it stays there.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when ants crawl out of it.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when mouse turds fall out of the bell.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when everyone on the bus is looking at your case.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when every note is sharp by a third and your slide's in all the way.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when the paint peels and you're not even playing.

    You know your horn needs cleaning when your section mates leave room deodorizer on your music stand, and the clarinets stop showing up.

    It may be time to clean your horn of a remote controlled robot grabs it out of your hands confusing it for a "dirty bomb".
