No, I'm not planning to stay at the bar until it closes down tonight, though I could probably make some interesting friends... maybe that's an idea for later.
November is coming soon and with it Remembrance Day in Canada (Nov. 11th).
One of my favourite parts of playing the trumpet growing up was having the honour to play the Last Call. I haven't played my trumpet seriously since undergrad. I'm not sure that our dog Banner has ever even heard the sound it makes :) He was mildly freaked out, mostly interested, when today I pulled out my trumpet. My intention is that by Nov. 11th I will have no trouble playing the Last Call, which means I need to whip my lips (embouchure) into shape! I'm hopeful it's like riding a bike!
Wish me luck! Is there anything new you're trying, or something you're trying for the first time again, like me?
