Haha i think this pretty much describes every band ever
EVERYONE is socially awkward, we're in band for christ's sake
@shakeweight, but especially the clarinets, I can vouch because I am one
@Draco MaIfoy, I too was the socially awkward clarinet player
Ironically this is quite true. But our oboist is so mentally unstable, he doesn't even show up to anything. Not class, not concerts, I've never even seen him myself.
@FriendlyWalrus, also, I am one of 5 percussionists. One is overweight, one is socially awkward, one is a basement dweller, and the other is into anime. I see where that puts me. One fine attractive walrus.
@FriendlyWalrus, why "ironically"?
@FriendlyWalrus, although, our band isn't even that big. We don't even have an orchestra. Private schools for the win! We have like 25 people. And yes, 5 are percussionists.
@origamiguyljb, well, not everything is on the internet is true, contrary to common belief. It shocked me. So I personally chuckled from a little irony. Also it was the word that came naturally. I also could have said "bombastically", but how much sense would that have made?
@FriendlyWalrus, I think they should add the slacker bassists.
@FriendlyWalrus, Some say he's a spies for the Kaiser. I heard he killed a man
@FriendlyWalrus, if you don't understand it's because there are no oboists.
@FriendlyWalrus, are you sure you just don't have an oboe player?
@FriendlyWalrus, I'm a sane oboe player... Where do I go?
@FriendlyWalrus, It's the invisible man!
@youredoingitwrong, as an oboe player currently at an oboe playing camp, I can say that if you are same, you are most certainly... Doingitwrong
@Voldemint, I'm sane because I'm smart enough to stay away from beginning oboe players lol
@youredoingitwrong, but no same person can suffer the double-reed misery.
@FriendlyWalrus, first I thought I would be the hot percussionist but then I got to the piano player who carried a knife. That's literally me.
@FriendlyWalrus, I am the hateful violist.
As a bass clarinet player, I can confirm this is true.
@Hank the Hamster, as an asshole who plays the trumpet, I can also say this is true.
@Hank the Hamster, as a saxophonist, I can confirm that this is all true except for the saxophone section
@Hank the Hamster, as a bassoon player I can confirm this
@Hank the Hamster, As a violinist I can confirm this is true.
@Hank the Hamster, so true it hurts.trombone fo life.
@Hank the Hamster, as an oboist, I don't think I'm mentally unstable, however the tied up children in my closet never seen to agree with that. Hmmm
@Hank the Hamster, as a percussionist, I can confirm this is true ;)
@Hank the Hamster, as a fellow bass clarinet player, I can also confirm this.
@Hank the Hamster, but...but...i play the piano and i only carry a syringe :(
@Hank the Hamster, As a percussionist, I cant confirm this is true.
@Hank the Hamster, as a socially awkward clarinet player. I can confirm this.
@Hank the Hamster, I used to play percussion although we didnt have anybody that was hot in our group myself included
@TheNicotineEyepatch, hah im also a bassoonist you sex machine
I'm the saxophone player who always looks high.
@Pretty Sweet, Same here
Don't forget the mayonnaise
Im the violist who hates everyone
@Marina Diamandis, I'm a violist and I actually don't hate everybody! However, I've had many stand-partners who really have grudges on everybody.
@Trollopotomous, believe me, most if the people in my orchestra are really mean.
There most certainly is not one of these people whenever I go...
@Bus Full of Kids, yes there is. You don't know it.
@Bus Full of Kids, You clearly aren't at the Indiana Music Educators Conference right now in Fort Wayne.
@Aperture Employee, what are you saying? I'm the bus parked out front silly
@Bus Full of Kids, some huggable tuna player follows me around when I walk
@Bus Full of Kids, you are right there is not one. BUT MANY MUCH OF THESE
@Aperture Employee, i was there last year!
This post needs more cowbell
As a saxophone player I can assure you we are high 24/7
And the horn player that kills babies for a living
@Shesaidhey, me too, I also eat them
Aaannd no horn player
@Brony Of Gotham, horn players are kind of like bassists/batman we are the musicians the band needs but doesn't have
@Brony Of Gotham, doesnt that explain Horns in itself though.
@Brony Of Gotham, we are the giants, or the hulks who play big sounds for puny ears that cannot withstand our reverberating awesomeness... '_'
@Brony Of Gotham, I am a French Hornist and one day in band, someone asked if I was going to stab them. I said no but they still didn't believe me. I now have my fake knife every now and then.
I know a saxophone player... accurate...
As a person that just searched my whole house twice for the hot percussionist, I can confirm that this is false
I play the tuba... Someone hug me?
@papaswish, I will hug you
@papaswish, *hugs* from a horn player ❤
@papaswish, a hug from a fellow tuba player.... I NAMED MINE TUBACCA
"looks like he probably carries a knife around" why include this? I carry a knife around and I never get called out. In fact, I occasionally carry 2. A work knife and a self defense knife. Why are people so paranoid about something just because it could be dangerous? The same thing goes for gun, people freak out if they find out if someone is carrying. Guns don't kill people, guns can't pull their own trigger. It's a human being who pulls the trigger. If we were afraid of everything that's dangerous, we'd be a poor sniveling species. I apologize for the rant, but the right to protect myself is a subject that is very close to me.
@Darth Plagueis, I carry a knife, so what? I don't plan on hurting you with in
I played the trumpet and was pretty damn good but I wasn't an asshole
@the firebender, I'm both the hot percussionist, and I was the piano player that would keep a knife around.
@the firebender, I too was a trumpet player, and while I wasn't an asshole either, I knew several who were
@voices in your head, I'm the same as you. But on the bright side being a percussionist makes it easier to lure prey!
Guilty as charged (clarinet player)
Unfortunately for me I'm a bass clarinet player and a drum major so it's my job to know what's going on. I liked my blissful ignorance.
None of my fellow percussionists are hot... Wait... Does this mean I'M the hot percussionist?! Fvck yeah!!
FALSE ONLY FAKE VIOLISTS HATE EVERYONE!
Yes, I know i'm a hot percussionist ;) tynm
And a massive Tromboner
As a female trombone player this applies to the guys in my section
Unfortunately, I was the socially awkward clarinet player. But on the bright side, our oboe career is really taking off!
I am that violist that hates everyone
I'm the socially awkward clarinettist
I know an Asian saxophone player if that counts...
I'm that sax player, bari. Never actually high, though.
Woot woot hot percussionist
@DrumlineGuy, What do you play? I played bass drum last year for marching band and plan on playing snare next year.
@LindseyMoose, fellow bass! Bass 2 ftw
@Hickmonsta, I played bass 2!!
As a violist I can confirm this
I actually do play the piano. And I have been told by everyone I have ever met, that I have the most dangerous looking face of any teenager......but then they actually get to know me and realize I'm just a declawed kitten :(
I'm in percussion. Does that mean...nope.
What if you play oboe, flute, percussion, and trumpet? What then? What then?
I can find all of these dead in my closet.
I don't know sh!t about band but this one time at band camp..
My school didn't have a band cause we are straight
O yeah ima percussionist
I think I'll take the spot as "hot percussionist"
I can confirm the clarinet part, but i am also a percussionist so...
When you a drummer 😎
And the cellist is the chillest person there.
Mentally unstable oboe player "Megan"
So this is what the lowest band harbors
NOBODY EVER MENTIONS XYLOPHONE
I was that trumpet player.
I'm that socially awkward clarinet player...
I'm a percussionist, does that mean I'm hot? No? Okay...
As a tubist, I can confirm, I am very huggable.
As an oboe player, i can confirm this is true
How dare you call me mentally unstable
As a percussionist, I can confirm this
I'm at a funeral and there are none of those people here
I would be the hot percussionist ;)
I'm a tuba player, and my nickname is "teddy" as in the form of bear, because I'm a bit on the larger side of the spectrum.
Oh look there's me the violist
I showed this to my "friends" and they said I should learn how to play the oboe...
This is do not true, I'm a nice guy and I play the trumpet...... Okay every trumpet player is an asshole, including me.
And as a percussionist I can vouch for this too •_•
Hmm our bass clarinet likes to try and outshine everyone else
Not really true, but I was doing a show last night and our flute player got wasted and started chatting up one of our teachers that was at the show. She didn't play for the second half.
I play flute, but I'm not bitchy. :'D
I am a tuba player, this makes me very happy!
I am a piano player. And yes I do carry a knife around
I'm the high sax player!
As a piano player, SHUT UP OR I CUT YOU
I'm sorry, I wasn't aware there was a full band everywhere I went.
As a trumpet player, feeling worried about what people think of me.
That awkward moment when we had two sax players get busted for smoking pot...
As a saxophone...wait, what?
Trumpet player here; can confirm, am asshole
I'm the as*hole trumpet player.
Is the trumpet player an asshole, or does he play the trumpet with his butt?
As a saxophonist, this is 100% accurate.
And a horn player who looks like he's on steroids (hint* I'm a French horn player, but I'm not on steroids I just workout, but I'm still a nerd in heart and mind.)
@Sloth5050, French Horns FTW.
As a piano player, my victims can confirm this is true.
My haircut isn't that weird....
As a tuba I hope this is true.
The clarinet player in our band is really awkward, but one time she forgot her clarinet at school so I walked a few blocks to give it to her, and she freaking caught me with a scythe before she recognized me. Guys. Marry the clarinet player.
I am the opposite of the violinist description, I may have practiced 6 hours in my entire life. But my stand partner, OOHHH he goes home and sacrifices his soul to satan so that the day can be longer and he might be able to practice longer than sunlight allows
I play the bassoon...and i can confirm that this is true.
I played oboe... Yup it's true
This is so true.. I'm the socially awkward clarinet player
As a tenor flute (different from regular flute) I can confirm this. Except the strings. My school band doesn't have string instruments.
And I'd be the high saxophone player, I guess.
What if you're not near anything music related?
I feel like this was written by a percussionist
What about Cello :'(
I know a trombone player who cut the initials if our band into his hair... I would say this is accurate
I'm that stupid bass clarinetist
My god...I was the trombone player with the weird haircut...
But as a saxophone player, none of us were ever looked high.
I would definitely be the asshole trumpet player
We have had the nastiest girl percussionists
I'm the violinist who practises six hours a day
I play keytar...
As an oboist, I wouldn't necessarily call myself mentally unstable, I'm just a bit of a perfectionist... an oboist joke I always laugh at: how many oboists does it take to change a lightbulb? One but it takes about 50 lightbulbs for him to find the right one
I am the trombone player with a weird hair cut... I have really long hair and I'm a guy.
On the way to football games my peeps on the sax bus were always messing around, and once we spent the entire ride taking pictures in which we looked stoned. And in class, we constantly crack up for absolutely no reason.
I'm the only oboe player at my school...well i wasn't always the only one...
Well, I don't think I look that high...
Pretty accurate. I was the saxophone player that always looked REALLY high.
When I was in band, we had an asshole trumpet player. But me, I was the huggable trumpet player.
Of all the trumpet players in the band, I got to sit next to the @sshole.
I'm in choir and my best friend is in band, and from the stories she tells me, this is very true. I'm sending this to her.
What about the euphoniums?
As a trumpet player, I can confirm there are way more than just one a$$holes.
I'm the huggable tuba player.
You just described my bedroom
