Ha! You'd better not crap out on this when it turns out you're not good right away like you normally do. Wait- is it you I'm thinking of? Anyway, I want to see you in the London Symphony Orchestra by Christmas 2012. I'll buy tickets for everyone (but I might need fair contributions from you all to meet the cost).

No, I'm the guy who buys nothing but introduction books on subjects and then makes like he knows everything.

Learn to play something more obscure like the Soprillo or the Crotales.

Conformist.

Intriguing news. I'm going to audition for a wind ‘orchestra’ on Monday. I haven't blown my trombone in three-and-a-half years. We should jam some time (even if you are a dirty, filthy string).

That's interesting news, Max. What kin of wind orchestra is it? Community? School?

Also Chris, you have the cheek to tell him to play an obscure instrument when you picked the damn clarinet, the violin of the wind band?

I didn't choose the clarinet, Gabe. It chose me.

And I was clearly joking, no one could master the soprillo as a first instrument. No. One.

Yeah, if you try to learn the guitar before you're 28 then you're automatically a douchebag.

Theremin would be awesome, but that's more of an instrument I'd expect Justin to learn. Looking at you, Joe, I'd have to say you're either a heckelphone or contrabass clarinet guy. Both instruments are long and skinny like you, but are rich and dark in tone

The best I get is "shiftless lump" and "lazy wastrel", sometime in the late morning/afternoon. The woman in question is invariably my mother.

For it's appearance, try learning the Bag Pipes.
For it's name, try learning the Sackbutt.

Used, it's a society in the union of students, but it's got full support from the university's music department. I'm not going to audition tomorrow, though, because a) I couldn't find a music stand to do any practice and b) I decided instead to go and get membership tickets for some High Society thing the swing dance society is becoming part of. I don't really know what that means. There will be auditions later in the year, when my timetable is less cluttered.
