    There is only one solution for stupid - and it is usually permanent.

    I consider stupid conductors a reason to find another band. The F-G trill in the band version is easiest as a lip trill with valve 1+3 depressed. It is also a great reason to get the lip trill up to speed. A very careful shake also works.

    I love their playing, but is it a point of honour for them to play 125% of the written tempo? I mean no disrespect because it's astounding how well they play everything so fast. If we were in the past I'd suspect i'd inadvertently set a 33 RPM vinyl at 45 RPM, lol.

    Cases in point:

    I use "like" sometimes to say "I agree"

    Well, as I think I mentioned, it was a former band of mine. I did not even have a chance of leaving by myself - I was chucked out for "disrespect to the conductor", together with about half the band. What the rest came to, you can imagine -months of strife, and eventual disbandment.
