    Make doubly sure your caps and buttons are tightened all the way.

    Do you have a little moustache? Is it trimmed properly? These things are important!

    Strange... I switched to Ultra Pure Valve Oil because Wynton uses it and I don't sound like him either... What the heck?

    Are you using your hand vibrato? Mustache properly trimmed? Flamboyant clothing donned?


    The superman-like chops, flawless technique, and seeming immortality will follow these VERY IMPORTANT points.


    Arturo learned the secret of mustache cultivation early in his career. It was his "breakthrough" point.

    Okay, I'm having a problem with the moustache - are there some hormone treatments I should take? Anything to improve my playing! Why has this secret been hidden so long - and to think we've all been spending so much time on Arban studies?ROFL

    My brain is so full of information I can't tell Shinola from the other stuff, but in one (sometime in 1975, maybe--the one with Herseth on the cover[that for sure!]) issue of The Instrumentalist, Armando Ghitalla talked about his moustache, how shaving before a gig made his lip feel different.

    Ergo, if you don't shave your upper lip, you have a moustache, regardless of gender. It may be so wimpy that no one can see it (except yourself when your self-esteem is down), but yeah, you really do have a moustache, but rather than shave it, keep it neatly trimmed.

    And, uhh, the moustache issue doesn't exempt anyone from Abran studies.

    We may take time off for grooming purposes, however. :cool:

    With females it takes a little longer to grow a moustache. Even then it will be a bit thin and wispy. Sorry
