I got a trombone yesterday, and they're just awesome!! I can't play much but I love it already. Especially growling into them! I think my range is pretty good for a beginner - low Bb, to a C above middle C.

But Im' wondering, how many open positions are there from the embouchere alone?

Also, should I get lessons, cos I'm finding it hard to teach myself.

Welcome to the trombone world! Keep at it, it's a really cool instrument!

It's actually infinite. It all depends on the the player. (There is a much more technical answer, if you want it PM me.)

ABSOLUTELY! It will pay off, believe me. I've been playing for many years, and I play for a living, and I still take lessons.
