Trombone player with camera mounted on his slider

It turns out that if you put a GoPro camera on the slider of a trombone, facing you, and then play a number, you get a perfectly synched, awesomely comical, mesmerizing video. Proof courtesy of youtuber CDMVette and his "Trombone Silliness."

    It’s a cool video, but it’s called a “slide”, not a “slider”.

    Just FYI, that’s a member of the New York Philharmonic - David Finlayson – on the ‘bone.

    My inner ear objects to this.

  9. Huh, so there is at least one video that wouldn’t be improved by the addition of Yakety Sax.

    Is this more GoPro viral marketing? Seeing as how any small camera would work, the camera brand is irrelevant.
