    The only place I can play a double stack is at "IHOP".

    A double stack C is quite common where I come from.I have Claude Gorton:s "How to play a Double Stack C with a Twist and Dismount in two weeks or less.Great for circus gigs!

    But in all seriousness, I think me means the C two ledger lines above the staff.
    Maybe he calls the lines a "stack".

    Is he...stupid?

    And here I thought my range was limited, I played a triple stack E yesterday, who knew.

    But in all seriousness, the term ignorance sounds worse than stupid, but it's not. It merely means ignorant (uninformed) about something. How many years did I think G above High C was a double G? And, add to that, slang . . . think of the following:
    Sticks - golf clubs
    Lip trills often referred to as "shakes"
    Gig - job, or performance
    . . . countless others . . . My kids are always coming up with them, and often I am the one who is ignorant, as I have no idea what they are talking about.
