    Playing too loud at the first rehearsal makes the conductor happy when we only play 25% too loudly after playing 100% the first time around. If the conductor gets all self-righteous, strut around like a hoodlum. As we are at the mercy of our wives and conductors, there are some mobbing tricks we can use. :cool:

    PM me if you need more mobbing tricks. I got so good at it my wife gave me an all expense paid one-way ticket back to America.

    I get the same response from my lady. A good excuse to buy a variety of mutes! She loves that muted sound.

    I've had similar experiences, with a dog that is, and I used to wonder if he really liked it or it pained him, but he could have gone into another room any time he wanted to get away, so I guess he somehow enjoyed it.
