What is a rusty trombone?

Rusty trombone is a euphemism for a sexual act involving a man in a standing position with knees and back slightly bent, with feet at least shoulder width apart in order to expose the anus. The other partner typically is on his or her knees behind the man and performs anilingus while reaching up beneath the testicles or around the body to masturbate the man, mimicking the motions of a trombone player. The act is defined primarily by the physical orientation of the partners and the combination of anilingus with penile masturbation; however, other positions and variations are possible.

Why did Gustav Holst learn trombone?

Gustav Holst was taught to play the violin and piano. But, he was a frail child. His father encouraged him to learn to play the trombone, believing it would improve his son's asthma.

Eventually, he gave up the piano due to a nerve condition in his right hand. From that point, he concentrated on the trombone and, of course, composing.

I would not consider the regular "tenor trombone" to be a scholarship instrument. However, instruments such as the alto and bass trombone are more likely choices as "scholarship instruments.".

7 years of playing tenor trombone,

2 years of doubling on Euphonium, Bass Trombone, & Tuba.

Answerfirst, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh

The above is true for a beginner trombone.

(1st position with trigger becomes sixth, 2nd position with trigger becomes seventh) though it is best to use sixth position while playing the F in the low register of the instrument.
