Eh, I thought Elvis for bass, guitar, drums and keyboards would be the natural firsts. But Elvis for TRUMPET...? Not exactly Rockband... But on the other hand, if I was a trumpeter, I would probably love this release:) I can't wait for the panpipe edition!

Does it come in a tin can?

Maybe there will be a Bagpipe, Tuba or Ukelali versions of this. I'm trying to picture someone belting out on a Tuba, "Song of the Shrimp" or "Long Tall Sally" on Bagpipes or banging out "Way Down" on Ukelali.

I actually bought and tried it- although I had quite some fun, my wife soon left me after this..

FTD won't be pleased. They had this down for release late in 2010. Looks like they have been beaten to the post again.

Brings back strange memories: I once played Petunia, The Gardners Daughter on trumpet .... in minus 10 degrees for my parents-in-laws for their silver wedding anniversary. The trumpet had to be scraped off my lips with a butter knife and lots of hot danish snaps (My mother-in-laws father was a gardner). And that's the only thing most folks remember from that day ;-)

There are dozens and Elvis books for guitar, keyboads etc - including many from the Hal Corporation. This is one of a series of 10 for other instruments and includes trumpet, clarinet, violin, viola, tenor sax, alto sax, horn, cello, flute and horn. More instruments will follow.

Maybe it contains the trumpet part as heard on all those awful versions of 'It's Now Or Never' from '76 and '77?
