And now for something completely different? a bit of Tuba shredding.
Man that takes me back. I was a tuba player for a long time.
About a 6 months ago I was in my college town for a business convention and so I wandered over to campus to walk around and check out the sights. I heard the siren song of the tubas off in the distance so I followed. They were out there practicing before the season started so I asked if I could play and see if I could remember the fight song. 10 years later and I still hit every note!
Thanks for posting!
That's some good stuff.
Tuba was my first instrument. I was pretty good, but not that good. I still love it.
Fun fact: My senior year of high school (1995) I had a tuba solo on the field in the half time show. Well, a duet - a member of the flag corps danced while I played. And after a long and strange road, I'm marrying that flag-dancing girl this coming July!
"Siren Song of the Tubas" - I understand with all of my heart
That's 25 years!! I wanna hear more!!
Just great. Now we're going to see the tuba purists come out of the woodwork and derail every non-tuba thread with their talk about how nothing sounds as good as tubas.
Long story, but suffice it to say: I made a 25 year long favorable impression despite the tuba and prominent unibrow. I got married, had kids, got divorced all while she was pursuing her dream career. But things change.
I've since found tweezers and guitar and I feel whole lot cooler. But she knows the real me. We reconnected last year and knew right away.
She's my best friend and exactly what I've been missing my whole life.
I love the part where he hits the distortion pedal.
I am pretty pleased to have elicited such enthusiastic memories...
Enjoy, all y'all blowhards.
That dude is really good. Nice thing about a tuba............someone could pass gas while playing and you may think that the player had a dual note, either in tune or out of tune.
That was a great video;’thanks for posting! Skillful, self-effacing, funny and articulate. It’s inspring to hear him talk about his enthusiasm for the instrument and exploring what it can do.
I played low brass in high school, including tuba...but not like that!
