By contra i'm sure you mean the kind you throw on your shoulder...right? Well, I have a quick question i hope you (or any other contra players can help me with) I've just joined up with a certain group of marching brass and stick beaters, and they use contra's instead of sousaphones. I was wondering how long did it take you to get used to the contra because after a three day clinic/audition my arms are about to fall off. Specifically what kinds of exercises did you do to build up muscles,....push-ups, or holding weights in front of your body.
