Tuba Toothpaste (will the bad jokes never end?)

Well, that’s an odd thing! Getting a bit better now – the repeated scales and slurring exercises have enabled me to at least wrest a tune from its brassy bowels. Or something. But the odd thing is, since exercising in earnest, I can actually get a reasonable sound of a Mrs Gubbins tenor horn and Master Gubbins junior’s cornet!

So, it would appear that what They say is true – practicing low notes makes you better at high notes. Either that or I’ve just been blowing the baritone wrong and the bass (which is, I believe, a much less forgiving instrument) is pulling me up on my slopping breathing / blowing.
