    Nearly to rehearsal, taking the train. And I realise I have forgotten my music. All of it. :evil::grouphug:

    It could have been worse, have your music and not your horn. Had a trombone player come to band one night, opened his case to find he had left the trom on its stand at home.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Look at this as an opportunity for improvisation.

    I shared. But I hate doing that because I make more mistakes where there are chromatics or the music is tiny.

    Don't feel bad I did the same thing two weekends ago. Traveling from the most northern tip of Manhattan, 1 cab, 1 train and bus later in Staten Island, realized... no sheet music.

    I've done both...open up the case at rehearsal and there's no horn in it, and show up at rehearsal with no music. I've shared music before (which I don't like, either), but when there's no horn, it's back home to get one. I haven't done either in a long time, though, as I now do a mental checklist before I leave the house, and usually open the case to make sure what I need is in there.

    Actually, I'm done to 3 times doing this :oops:. Playing with 2 different groups, one of which has a regular and a holiday book doesn't help but still. Hopefully I'm done with that. Never found myself without a horn though...
