    If it's watching "Thelma & Louise", I agree. If it's "other" stuff, the trumpet stays in the case!

    I don't hate anything about my trumpet. There are many like it but this one is mine. If only we had more hours in a day.

    Re: Things you hate about the Trumpet

    Things I dislike about playing trumpet:

    1.) I dislike the fact that I've never been able to develop the kind of range and chops I've always wanted.

    2.) I dislike that even taking a little time off results in needing to proactively rebuild what has been lost, and the older I get, the faster I lose it, and the longer it takes to rebuild it

    3.) I dislike that chopping out is a very real concern for any gig that runs long (I've never had to worry about that behind the drums)

    Other than that, it's been a great instrument that has taken me to a lot of wonderful places and opportunities.

    This is my one pet peeve too.
    It's the player, Not the horn that makes music.

    Re: Things you hate about the Trumpet

    I have to also "second" one of Trickgs' pet peeves.

    I really hate the fact that missing practice affects range and endurance so much. I love practicing for sure. It is weird how a day or two can actually be beneficial but a week devastating. It was the same when I was a body builder; nearly identical in fact. The only thing I can hope for is that with more experience, the loss is less and the return is easier. At least, that is the way it was with body building until I got to a certain age. Then it was more difficult as Trickg suggests. Not a good thing.

    Re: Things you hate about the Trumpet

    I have thought of a new one in responding to another post. I HATE NERVES. I recently had to in an audition type situation to get an "additional" teacher. I think so highly of this man that I was extremely nervous. During my warm-up, I was so nervous my jaw was quivering and it made my notes wobble. God, someone, please tell me how to get rid of that!

    @BrotherBach ...perhaps that's why trumept players are so cocky .. confidence to conquer fear
