    I had some empty beer bottles laying in my practice room (the bathroom). Playing low into the bucket mute allowed the right frequency to clatter 4 bottles...Cool...absolutely...The bottles were sitting next to eachother and touching.

    It seems I have to lip the note just right for it to work but I repeated the process three times. Pretty freaking cool. I don't think I have enough oxygen to break them :)

    Very evocative and interesting mental picture there.

    I've ratlled windows in an old German church playing a concert d below the staff on my Scherzer piccolo. Funny, only the trumpet players in the audience and orchestra were impressed. Fun, though!

    Geez, the only time most players can skake empty beer bottles is when they're getting into D.T.'s.

    Gives you a whole new perspective on "seizing" the opportunity.
