    Thanks for posting this. My son is just starting to learn, and I have been hunting the internet for something like this. Also looking for a picture of the actual slide positions. I’m a percussionist so I have no background with the trombone really

    I learned tenor slide trombone in high school. Got away from playing for a great number of years. Picked up a Yamaha model YSL 648 with an F attachment serial # 011110. I believe it is of 1966 vintage. Is this correct info. Also I could use some info on using the F attachment. Not sure if I totally understand it’s use. Thanks
