    Peter, I printed it, visually scanned it and see it similar to a lot of stuff as was thrown at me in college, which was tedium then and would be now ... really it was coercion then if I wanted a decent grade ... and that certainly took away all the enjoyment. I've never had a good F# (fourth line of bass clef) on a Bb trumpet

    Too, now with COPD I'd be penciling in quite a few more breath marks than some others!

    Just don't believe the beginning students I sometimes tutor could get into it either.

    I do take umbrage at his usage of a PAUSE to take a break/rest period. Just can't be in real music!

    My agenda for Saturday is to go to the studio and record Holiday Schottische by Stephen Collins Foster.
