    I don't know... Depends Who's on first... What's on second... which by the way is on third.

    That's it! I'm marching right up to Chicago tonight and demanding that Ricardo Muti give me another shot!

    Oh man, every player has those. I recently helped out the HS where I teach part time, one of the guitar kids was doing a B blues chart, which of course put me in C# blues. The 57 started to fall out of the mic clip and we were fiddling with it right as I started my chorus and I just blanked. I think it was the worst solo I have played in my adult life, AND Peter Cetera was there as his daughter Savannah goes there!

    Now, the kids didn't seem to notice and I 'sold' it, but on the inside I was mortified.

    You just shake it off.

    One time in a concert I cracked a note. I almost cried!

    It's been ages but I remember it like it was yesterday. I had this really fancy horn's up I would do before the second piece of my High Schools half time show. (Lala's theme from Star Wars)
    I started the piece before the band would come in. We were at a marching festival in Ft Walton Beach Florida at the time it happened. When I went to take my solo I started with the fancy horns up I had worked on when my mouthpiece flew from my horn and traveled 20 yards away. The band could not start with out me so I had to break attention and then get my mouthpiece and start the solo. It was a horrifying moment for a high school kid.

    Hey Robin, I've found when you write it smallish like that - they just don't seem to listen - or could it be just me?
