    You know, you are noodleing around with say "God rest ye merry gentleman" and you're cookin' around the real melody and you get lost just for one note, what do you call that one note that "blats" in the middle of your creative messin' around? Or is it part of the music? What are your thoughts?

    Ha HA, I agree but there is no music and I'm alone unless my wife is listening upstairs, I'm the one that suffers when it happens. No music, so yeah, part of the piece. I wonder how those buggars sneak in when it's going so well?......

    ROFL CLAMS - Yes Brian - that is an oldie but a goodie! (love the Kaderabek quote)

    I put in my vote for "clam" Mendez.

    "God rest ye merry gentle clams let nothing you dismay" :whistle:

    Yee HAW!
    A wrong note played weakly is a mistake; a wrong note played strongly is an interpretation. (At least, that's what one of our band directors used to tell us! As soon as he said that there were a lot fewer mistakes.)
