I'm a horn guy, been playing off and on for 50 yrs, still suck. I do, however, know what makes a good horn player. As I think about this aspect, I'm after the folks who aren't featured artists, but are part of a bigger band that wants a killer horn player. Clarence Clemmons, of course. Also, Jeff Coffin of DMB and Bela Fleck is just an amazing player. I offer up as evidence:
Horn guy here too! I bought a Yamaha tenor student model about 20 years ago, and took lessons for almost 2 years.
I really enjoyed the experience, but in the end, I didn’t keep up with it, and I lost my chops. I still have the horn, and this thread has been an inspiration for getting it out again.
Also, I still have my student model clarinet that I break out from time to time, which is really fun to play.
Keep on honkin’!!
