Does anyone else out there play the alphorn?
 
Ok maybe a bit of a long shot, but I have been playing for about a year, so still lots to improve but would be good to practice with more than one player.

I do take lessons with a great teacher but all his groups have been playing for years and a non-swissy playing the sacred instrument tends to get raised eyebrows!

If you are a secret alphorn player and fancy a "jam session" let me know, cheers:):)

I did read in an magazine recently of an American guy somewhere in CH that plays the alphorn.... but I guess that might be you anyway!

Cudos for taking up a very impractical insrtument. I have a swiss friend that plays on every cation he can think of. Quite fun to watch. If you manage to finde like minded horn players let me know, I would love to hang out for a beer while you guys are playing. :)
