    Suckitude


    Used to refer to the magnitude in which something sucks.
    I am unceasingly amazed at the suckitude of many new bands.


    I found this in the Urban dictionary. Is that "scientific"?:lol:
    Oddly enough, bands were used to help define it! ROFL

    The lapse rate is defined as the rate of decrease with height for an atmospheric variable. The variable involved is temperature unless specified otherwise.[1][2] The terminology arises from the word lapse in the sense of a decrease or decline; thus, the lapse rate is the rate of decrease with height and not simply the rate of change. While most often applied to Earth's atmosphere the concept can be extended to any gravitationally supported ball of gas.

    Ball of gas - Some of the advice given on this forum. ROFL

    Start with Irons and do groups 4-9 pp every day for about a month, then re-evaluate your progress.

    Forget all the advice here except for this.

    Apply tremendous amounts of mouthpiece pressure on your chops, hook up a leaf blower to your ass, and then blow as hard as you can up and down the scale. Don't forget however to only change pitch using your tongue. Ignore the smell of the combustion fumes from the leaf blower.

    Hey btomcik,

    Using your system.

    I need to install a pressure relief valve somewhere.

    Can you help with defining the location? I had a solution in mind
    but the location is already occupied.

    Need help desperately.


    Cheers,

    Paul.

    Chops practice AND landscape gardening at the same time. That's just good multitasking.
