No need to call me mr ballantyne tex all the older blokes on here are just one of the boys.you might find this interesting when I was 16 I played the cornet in a brass band and a trumpet in a jazz group unfortunately I fell off my bicycle and landed face first in a pile of rubble ruining my embrouchure so my playing days were over.

Yep, loss of embouchure will stop brass & woodwind players. I knew a sax player who developed numbness and nerve problems in his lip and couldn't control the reed anymore. He was gutted about it.

The last couple of years I worked playing electric bass I was visited by spells of cramping and charlie horses in my fingers. It had the same effect. It got more frequent until I had to pack it in and retire from regular gigging.

You and Mothy need to start a band.
He is a mean piano/keyboard player with some success!

Resurrect the bass;  ditch the brass and go for woodwind Jim;  Stewie must have a few thimbles and a washboard amongst all his other junk I seen..and I'll get the Casio outta the loft.  Call ourselves "The V Stars" - well some of us could... I feel a song coming on.

Good news re. the Bike Jim...keep on keeping on.. :152: :152:
