Fred & Reed player List Mates
I have a big callus on my thumb where the axe rests. 

Leave it to a reed player to think they're special!  We all have our
marks.  Mine is a bent third finger on the left hand, and a raised area
on the side of the same finger where most of the weight of the trombone
sits.  And, we won't even discuss what my chops look like!

Other than that, I'm a fairly handsome guy......


p.s.  trumpet players tend to have a large bulge in their
pants.......where their spare mouthpiece sits in their pocket!
