    This isn't the worse comment I've ever heard, but it is not pleasant either. A sax playing friend of mine had a bad day at a gig and after a solo we could clearly hear from somebody in the audience:

    "That solo was.. interesting." :shock:

    "do you take requests?" asked the gentleman at the bar.


    "sure do!" I replied


    "Would you STOP?"

    true story.
    gotta love the audiences we play for.

    "Other than the cracked notes, missed accidentals, rushing, and no concept of what the trumpet is supposed to sound like, it wasn't too bad"

    My trumpet teacher said this to me once, it was more humorous above all else :D

    So true, try playing in that section sometime! :evil:

    I was sub-leader of my university string orchestra in my final year, and was quite horrified to find out what some of the others had been saying about me behind my back. The biggest problem was that I am principally a trumpeter and (thinking I was funny) I kept telling everyone how rubbish I am at violin. It probably didn't help that I won the prize for string players that year. :-P

    I believe the full quote is thus:

    "Madam, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving pleasure to thousands - and all you can do is scratch it."

    I'll be honest, if I had a student like that and a judge said something like that I would pretty much verbally tear that person's head right off of his/her shoulders and plant it where the sun don't shine.

    I'm a senior in high school so violence is still an easy way to solve disputes of this manner. I would have handed that judge a body part. I know violence isn't the answer, but in a situation like that, I believe the phrase I'm looking for is "righteous fury".

    The guy in the talent show on TV said.

    You will win if you ditch your mom and dad and little brother.

    The little kids started crying.
