Single again and in attempt to appear "windswept and interesting" I have taken up the cornet after a 30 year break. It's amazing how much like riding a bike it is, in that one never forgets how to play. I was never a bandsman and to be honest am pretty tone deaf but find playing a good distraction and a great way to p*ss off the neighbours. I would appreciate a few tips from any bandsmen on how to increase range as I am having no end of strife on the higher notes (beyond high d). Any tips appreciated. I stand by for p*ss taking.
