    From the trumpetblog.com:

    "4. The trumpet is not the only instrument of value in the world. Trumpet players have the reputation (and in many cases justifiably so) of being self centered, arrogant, prideful and down right pompous. Stop it!"

    It got me almost to crying! ROFL

    Yes, but what's the downside?

    Anyone ever heard of angels blowing woodwinds?
    Didn't think so!

    And yet there is no other instrument listed which seems to prove the point that the trumpet is the only instrument of value. As far as the other stuff goes, I don't where this filler player (aka woodwinds or anything that is not a trumpet) got his idea. I'm the most humble person I know. :cool:

    The other instruments are only there to provide the "musical" cushion upon which we sit - we're positioned at the back of the band so that we can more effectively impose ourselves on the lesser instruments. Simple really.
