I assumed it was obvious. But that might just be the trumpeter in me talking.

I don't play the trumpet and I thought this was how they work.

3 valves each with a tube splintering off the main cylinder. It just so obvious.

Next someone is gonna post how a Trombone works and they will find it fascinating too.

Doesn't that mean there are only 8 possible notes? I don't play, so I have no idea, but I feel like the range of notes is a lot more than just 8...

it depends on your ombiture and how fast the air is flowing. that creates higher note on the same fingering.

Yeah like these guys said fingering is only half of the story. changing octaves changing ombitures.

True. still unreadable. but you're right, if it was just a thumbnail, you'd still be able to click it and it'd open the image seperately, but still be tiny.

Not only does your reference not work, the D.I. deals with recruits, not privates.

that may be true but I doubt he was trying to be politically correct to actual drill instructors, I believe he was being PC to the movie in which Robert L. Ermey called the recruits, privates

Doesn't work? I thought we were on the subject of spherical objects passing through a long narrow space?
