Yes, I know I have one.  NO…the instrument people!  Well, here it is.  This is the instrument I borrowed from real people who know how to play it.  I am a poser.  Completely.  Today I had my first lesson in it, and I have decided that it is too hard already, but I will give it the old college try ( or thirty-five-year-old try) which ever one is better and wiser.  This is an early version of the trombone (obviously, but notice the smaller bell), and it is a copy of a historical instrument of the Renaissance.  I play french horn, but this is…uh…COMPLETELY different.  Good golly.  I have it for two months to borrow, so I need to use what little time I have wisely.  That will be hard since our summer plans are quite hectic.
