“Hey guys, watch this…”
I mean, ahem, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
I had asked one of the trumpet players involved in this experiment
to write up a how-to, but I’ve changed my mind. You don’t need to know how to do this trick,
because you’re not going to try this at home – right?
The first flare-up is just about 15 seconds into the video.
The other highlights can be found at: 2:30,
4:50, and 7:20.
Trumpeters Playing With Fire
Ah, summer. My
favorite comment from when this video posted on Facebook came from their teacher. He
suggested that this experiment was a sign that he needed to assign them more
etudes to practice.
You can also find other videos of these guys playing trumpet and trying other experiments with fire.
