Surgeons do not offer step by step instruction for routine operations, because they are aware that all sorts of complications can happen.

    To be absolutely clear, the member involved has NOT sent me any message of blame or disappointment.

    Should I refrain from giving repair advice?

    Should I always include a disclaimer?

    Or should I let people go ahead by themselves without advice?

    I am very interested to hear your comments.
    Please continue. There is always risk in any repair/maintenance task. Always enjoy your advise.

    Unless you reach or are at a point where you are tired of giving repair advice don't stop because just as it is with music, knowledge that has been and is gained through positive and negative experiences should be shared and you should always include a disclaimer so that you are covered should anyone want to pursue legal action. People are going to go ahead regardless without advice as humans are creatures of emotion not logic.

    I mean, Kingtrumpet was a normal person until I started giving him free medical advice... NOW look what happened?

    However, TM seems to have tolerated this debacle... So if you stop giving trumpet advice, I'll stop giving medical advice!!!
    +1. Agree with all of this. You at least will guide someone more in the right direction better than someone blindly leading themselves!

    I know I'm only back after a break but advice is advice nobody holds a gun to your head and says you must do it this way. Ivan it seems as though most people like what you say, so keep it up pal accidents with instruments happen to all of us. like the mini dent in my cornet 2nd slide , inconsequiential but annoying.

    Oh yeah, tell it to this guy who insists this is the ONLY way to play a bugle.

    So Ivan, what would your add to this piece to help deaden the scream when the performer pulls the trigger thinking it's the spit valve?
