    One trick I remember seeing on a PBS tribute show to the Eagles (the folk rock band): The trumpet player for the Mighty Horns (which is the Eagles' horn section) played a stirring solo intro to "Hotel California" and, near the end, put his hand in front of his bell for that wah-wah effect while at the same time coaxing cheering applause from the audience. He did it with very broad gestures and it worked.

    I have blown the end of my horn, without the spin though. I also have a few little tricks just for fun. I live down south and most people love it lol.

    I use this one the most...

    But have pulled this one at a few football games...

    Normally though, I just give a smile and a wave. But sometimes I'm in a great mood :)
