    Jokes are good, but we're not really looking to invent new terms here - just firm up on terms already in use on TM :-)

    Point well taken. But if you read through a good number of threads on TM, you'll see words like oboe, bone, flute and viola etc. etc. used in ways that will not be found in the OED or a Wiki list of musical terminology. Case for the defence is closed, m'lud.

    Okay, 'Premature Articulation' just tickled me ROFL

    dead tone - play phrase with no vibrato (at least that's what I've heard, maybe someone else has a better concept)

    That would be synonymous with 'play correctly' when I was being taught :-)

    Louis Armstrong a trumpet player was the king of scat. Many of the syllables of scat were trumpet derived. So you can scat better through playing trumpet.
