    And if you drink one too many... you may forget you were married... then you are fair game for the hunters that lurk down under... so to speak.

    The last time I tried to catch a woman after she had had a ridiculous amount of red wine I nearly cracked my head open by softening her fall.

    Oops, my bad. That was the next to last time. The last time, she tried to crack my head open.

    I think the poets call that "unrequieted" love.

    THAT'S YOUR PROBLEM... You got it all bass akwards.

    First: Crack the bottle open
    Second: Poor the lady rediculous amounts of red wine
    Third: She will then fall into your softing arms
    Fourth: Well, fourth is fourth base... score... homerun!

    Your medical mind is a little overactive my friend.

    Well I have not broiled to death here in Australia. I have been playing my long tones, Rubank, and my Music Minus One big band book. Fun! :play: I just ordered the Claude Gordon elementary book too. I have read the intro material to Arban but I'm not ready yet. I got that Arban companion book too.

    Oh and I'm bidding on a cheap ugly old cornet on eBay. :play: :play:

    Nice! If you win it, get yourself a Wick "B" cup cornet mouthpiece with a diameter near what you use for trumpet. Then you'll be all set :-)

    Fwiw, I have an Ebay "clunker" cornet too.

    I have noticed that players coming from school bands and returning often were good bandsmen but lacked time playing solos. It may be a good idea to get some books of stand alone solos and bang them out until you get the sound you want as well as the more formal training methods and it prevents boredom as well. Duets and trios have their uses as keeping in tune when doing melodies becomes critical but stand alones give you nothing but yourself to fall back on and I think that is very instructional in itself.

    If you can get an audience to drink enough you'll need far less skills to keep them happy. You can sort of tell when you switch instruments say a trumpet for a clarinet and visa-versa and the audience is applauding like crazy and you don't know one end of the clarinet from the other.
