A bit more from the annual village fete (worse than death) Sorry, Moira
Brass should to be polished before it can be blown. This rule only applies to bands and orchestras. Cool dudes blowing a mean sax in a smoky jazz/blues club are excluded from this rule. Polishing doesn't improve the sound, but at least you look the part with your shiny instrument in your hand
It also helps if you pick up your instrument before you inadvertently step on it.
Sometimes blowing can take more effort than polishing...
With depressed greetings from a rainy location just west of Oslo where we are still waiting for summer...and the days start getting shorter after today...
