I played bassoon at school and then had a long over 20 years!
Started playing bassoon again a couple of years ago and now I can't put the thing down! Have bought a gorgeous 30 year old Puchner and it sings like a wonderful baritone singer - but better!

I'll play in anything I'm allowed to join!
At present am playing in a Concert Band, an Orchestra, various small ensembles - sometimes playing oboe part or reading clarinet part and attempting to transpose which teaches you to read tenor clef better.
Have joined a Show Band and play the trombone part. Couldn't be heard with loadsa saxophones playing so I am amplified when I play in the Show Band. Also attempt to play in an Improvisation Group and again have to be amplified for that too.

Starting to give a few solos with piano accompaniment or CD backing tape.
Tend to play well known songs that everybody recognises rather than classical.

Delighted to learn there are so many of you bassoonists out there. Last time round when I played (in the 1970's - yeh before many of you weren't born!) it was very lonely being a bassoonist.
