I played one when I was a kid in a local brass band. Now I am getting all sentimental about it. After all, there was only 2 of us guys against 30 cornets, and who could get sentimental about a cornet?

Bass section rules!

Here is the same. Last month we had meeting of young musicians from all over the country. For example, there were over 35 trumpets, and only 3 tubas. I`m 17 years old, and I play it in 2 orchestras, and in one brass band. I really enjoy!

my band doesn`t have a tuba.... the lowest range we have is from the Euphoniums and Tenor Trombones.... is there anyway we can "stimulate" the sound of a tuba? (not sure whether thats the right word)

No, I don`t think you can substitute tuba. Maybe you can use bass guitar? Euphonium is nice, but it`s not the same. Tip: Try to find tuba player

noting will replace that true low brass bass sound. a bass guitar still won`t give you those dominating low notes.

...unless you tune the guitar down.
Also, what about those huge saxophones?

I used to play as a kid 5th & 6th grade. My story is I raised my hand after the whole class had chosen their instrument and so I had last pick. The only thing left was the tuba and the next year I was the only one in my class to go into advanced band. They threw me in a closet while I practiced with my band teacher. If I was absent he wouldn`t get paid, so I tried to always be in class. I haven`t played since the 6th grade but I`m trying to get back into it. Know of any good free notes I could download?

I started out playing cello, then moved to upright bass. Now that I`m in a marching band because it`s a prerequisite at my highschool for the jazz ensomble. I was playing marimba because I can play piano, but I`ve been convinced to start tuba, so I can help the susaphones, since there`s only three of them in the band.
