    Referring to my attention span, Doc, attention span. I don't go on the sax forum, no use for that. I'm apposed to sax and violins................they should be rated R.

    KC - I think this is the best approach --- TO BE NICE, however, I just want to caution you on the side that "FRED" may grow accustomed to you coddling him, and as a trumpet player, he may even like that. ------ of course, you might have to be nice to FRED, several times, and who knows --- a small, friendly discussion on his actions may be the answer, KC, I am talking a discussion, a dialogue --- you may find out this guy has some other reasons in life, or maybe, nobody has ever instructed him on edicate.

    ps. -- now the semi-pro who makes you feel lowly -- (either this is a self inflicted thought, or he has a personality issue) --- anytime, last year one of "those" guys said to me when I started my community band last year ---- ""hey KT, those are 16th notes, they are sub-divided eighth notes, can't you count?"" --- to which KT here, promptly said "Thank you, I am so glad someone offered to explain this to me, could you give me further details on what this eighth note represents!!!", and then I followed by playing an F scale in 3 octaves and said - by the way ''Do you know the names of all those notes? that would help me immensely in identifying where they go in this piece of music" ----- gee, I have never had a problem with that guy since, he is actually quite decent now ----- now KT here suspects that since this guy plays 1st trumpet, was just having a bad day, and came off sounding like he was important ---- yes, give everyone the benefit of the doubt!!! ---- or give them a low F, and a high F just for fun!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    Etiquette. OOps:oops:. You're not Doc.
    You can play 3 octaves of an F scale? Is that with a fake low F below the staff?

    dude -- if you really could play down there -- you would know there is NO FAKE F --- that is a serious F, all you have to do is play the low F# and put the first and third slides all the way out ---- THEN YOU GOT AN F ---- a real F, not some fake F !!! --- and by the way --- I might have more notes than that on the high side -----------------------------------------------------but we ain't bragging here on TM --- that is not good edicate(etiquette) ROFL ROFL ROFL ----- yeah, I may have a few more notes on the high side!!!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    (((ooopss, you are correct, I am not the Doc --- but I was recently on an Aussie website))) --- ROFL ROFL ROFL

    I proudly present one badge for you to wear on the front of your cap, or shirt, while

    I'm not sure why you might think that it is an Aussie website KT - all
    I could see was that they represented the date with the month first
    followed by the day - we in Oz NEVER do that unless we want to be
    understood by you blokes. We, here in Oz - and our cousins north of
    you in Canadia place the day first followed by the month - although
    I guess this would mean that 911 wouldn't have to same impact
    phonetically - Hmmm, thinks: Have I gone too far?

    I can't play any F note on trumpet that isn't in a staff ... treble or bass clef. Yeah, the low F# trumpeters pursue IS IN THE BASS CLEF AND STAFF. I can play an F# that is in the first space below the bass staff ... on a euphonium
