:D

I bought an old bugle off eBay and it came today! Of course, I have never played a musical instrument other than fiddling around with a piano and accordian to learn a few Christmas and patriotic songs self taught... and this pile-o-brass isn't quite as easy to figure out, but I'll get there! 8)

Good luck. I always liked the way Radar played the bugle on MASH.

It actually took me an hour to even make a sound like Radar. :lol: I've progressed enough to get a couple of discernable notes for about 15 seconds. (sigh)

I have wanted to learn also. It looks like it would be easy but from what Danger wrote I guess that it isn't.

Its all about the way you hold your lips, the strength of your lips and movement of lips and tongue on the bugle itself. Much different from a trumpet as the valves cotroll most of the change in tones/notes, with a bugle its all about lips and lip muscles.

I actually scared myself when something resembling this emitted:

It was a fluke, though... some sort of stellar alignment or something... I couldn't repeat it. :?
