    Its not hard to play other valved brass intruments once you know one. It depends on the length of the tubing and they vary according to the valve. For instance the longest length of tubing (ie all valves down) will raise by a semitone from open. And so to raise another semitone you go with the next longest (ie first and third).

    Its more logic in learning brass instruments. Trombone is the only odd one out really! And cornet, flugal horn and trumpet are exactly the same fingerings at the same pitch!!! I think (if I remember rightly) euphonium is the same at a different pitch (although its years since I've picked up a euphonium so not really too sure???)
    Hey, I did not know that... thanks for the info... I knew that clarinet and sax are very similar, in terms of blowing technique, so if I had enough money for a sax I'd probably be able to say I can play one :p:

    Which instruments do you play, by the way? (too much effort to look through all these pages :p: )

    I'e only just joined so you don't have to thumb back far. But I play Cornet as my main instrument, but can obviously play Trumpet and Flugal horn too.

    In the past I've played tenor horn, euphonium, baritone, tuba as far as brass goes.

    I'm also a violinist and pianist.

    That's cool! (lol, being in this topic makes my list of piano and clarinet seem very humble...) My friend plays the trumpet, and I'd one day like to learn it. Not enough money at the moment though :p:
