    So, just for the record, we have the following Arbans available:

    Leduc (the French 3-volume set)
    Claude Gordon (and Goldman and Smith...the red one)
    Platinum Edition (a fancied up CG version)
    New Authentic Edition (edited by Thomas Hooten)
    Vizzutti

    That's a lot of Arban!

    There is also a three-volume edition in German from the Hofmeister Verlag.

    hmmm, so when I suggest for someone to practice pg 125 it might possibly refer to an entire page of German text?
    Better yet an exercise I don't know I am referring to and it yields incredible results, resulting in likes and green chicklets ...

    It's a new concept.. interactive edition... play the passage incorrectly a puff of black smoke is emitted from the book ... you know you have it nailed when the puff of white smoke occurs

    By and large it seems like a reasonable set of guidelines. One has to respect the number of modern-day adherents to his methods. There seems to be some deviation from current Orthodoxy...

    "Avoid buzzing of any kind, tight mouthpieces and long tones for the purpose of building strength." I've seen a lot of advocates of long tones, whisper tones, crescendo/decresendo tones etc - almost universal?

    Interesting that CG seems to have thought he had The One True Path. Given that he built on and modified previous wisdom, would he have expected techniques and exercises to remain static with his method or to further develop?
