4. Made a lurching and pointless inventory of our mouthpieces.
5. Admitted to no one, especially string players, that there was a possiblity we could be wrong.
6. Were entirely ready to confirm we had no defects of character.

8. Made a list of every method book we owned and determined to mkae them a part of our routine.
9. Made every excuse we could think of why it isn't our fault we can't play better.
10. Went back, and inventoried our rmouthpieces again, and when we found we had acquired even more, promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer, meditation, and voodoo, to really reach Double C.
12. Having become thoroughly convinced of our superiority as a result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to the rest of the orchestra and the practicing principals in their chairs.
