      I know a lot of you guys are in band, so this is a thread where we can post problems that only band kids would understand. If some of your problems are only for only one instrument (or a few only) be sure to say that. I'll post some examples:

 

Clarinets/Saxophones/Oboes/Bass Clarinet/Reed Instruments: When you. can't. find. your. favorite. REED.

 

Trombones/Baritones/Tubas/Low Brass: When you slip on the puddle you made when you emptied your spit valve.

 

Flutes: When you're marching and your flip folder is strapped on your arm but you can't seem to hold it in a position that you can see it at, and play at the same time.

 

Go ahead and post your own. XD

 

(By the way, I play the clarinet)

Drumline: When you're practicing field routines in your harness, and the director is only working with the woodwinds, so you take the harness off because you have a sore back after 10 minutes of neglect, and that's when they choose to yell "FROM THE TOP". 

 

Any bulky instrument: Worrying about making a turn too fast and taking out a row of woodwinds.

 

Snare: Absentmindedly playing your part on loop with your fingers whenever you do anything that lets you zone out, like homework or reading, and annoying everyone around you

 

Everyone: Percussion traffic jam on the way out of the door

 

Everyone: Having your shoe come untied while marching

You're last one about the shoe happened to me last Friday... The saxophone behind me stepped on my shoe and it came off, completely ruining our march into the football stadium.

I play the clarinet!! One of my biggest issues is that my F-note will not play. It's very picky.

Clarinet problems: 

When your clarinet makes that really awful screech... right in the middle of a song. 

That horrible new reed taste. 

Shoving your clarinet pieces together because your grease ran out last week 

Not doing the stupid low/high notes 

When your reed is falling apart but it's your only one 

 

Yeah this is why I don't practice much.

Trumpets (and valved instruments in general:

Sticky valves. Especially when you don't have valve oil with you.

Flute: When you can't hear yourself because the trumpets and trombones are blasting their lungs out

 

Also Flute: When people say you have nothing to complain about because your instrument is so light but have you ever held your arms up THAT straight for THAT long?

I don’t play the flute, but I had some friends who did. It was the hardest instrument in the entire band.

Saxophone Problems: (I know a guy who plays it)

When band teacher tells you to play your lungs out except for you and you're the only one who actually knows your part, except when he puts you on the spot, then you mess up. Oh, the shame of being the loudest instrument in the band.

Piano: (I'm not in a band but I still perform) Your music teacher tells you to play the HARDEST SONG SHE HAS for Christmas and 2 weeks later tells you,"Oh, and I'm going to have you playing Mary Did You Know with the choir and sing with it" 4 WEEKS BEFORE A PERFORMANCE BUT I'D NEVER HEARD THE SONG UNTIL SHE GAVE IT TO ME.

I think this applies to all brass instruments...:

Cracking notes. 

 

Everyone:

When you play the wrong note due to missing the key signature/ key signature change.

When you can't keep up with the song and you're the only one who can't do you end up sounding stupid.
