    Something else that I have noticed, and keep in mind that I know very little about this subject, is that depending on the chord structure, it seems that sometimes if you play a note just a hair high or low of the center of the pitch it "tempers" the chord and really gets it to ring. Does that sound silly or is there something to that? I mean, most of the time a player just uses their ears and makes the minute adjustment automatically, but it sticks in my mind that for instance an A that is played in one chord might not be quite the same A that is played in another - the note is tempered and adjusted both in sound and pitch to best resonate within the chord. Am I nuts or is there some truth to this?
    I was always taught to play major thirds slightly flat and minor thirds slightly sharp, and yes I do think it does make a difference.

    THAT is a teacing clip if I ever heard one! Even on my cheesy computer speakers I can hear the resultant tones buzzing away! And it looks so effortless from you both...

    Now if I could get my 5th graders to play that in tune!

    It appeared from the link that you used puffed cheeks in that one! Then I saw the video (what little chose to play), and it didn't appear as though you use puffed cheeks. This got me thinking though, I seem to recall seeing Bud Herseth the one time I saw him using puffed cheeks while he played. Anyways, could you provide an answer as to what really is the case for this confused chap?

    I guess it shows though, one can play out of their right nostril and be the greatest, it's really a matter of dedication and what works for the individual.

    I have to laugh beause I can assure you it's not puffed cheeks...'s being a few more pounds overweight than I should be...



    HEY... I just looked at it again and what it is, is an optical illusion from the frames and lenses of my glasses. When I filled the screen I could see why you thought that. Whew... good, now I can get back to that banana split!

    I don't think you saw puffed cheeks on either player, but rather muscle to the front.
