Re: Q: Key Adjustment

Make sure to check and see that there hasn't been any foreign matter clogging up the linkage from your F key!

Re: Joke of the Day

Q: How does the maestro define adagio?

A: Any tempo wherein 4-6 bars should pass by before a flautist can sight-read Bb!

Re: Joke of the Day

Q: What's the difference between flutist and flautist?

A: Easy: One's an illiteracy, and the other can't read music!

Re: Joke of the Day

Yeah, technicians, let me tell you about technicians: Last week I called up my repair-guy and asked if I could come on by the shop and pick up my Yamaha I'd taken down for servicing. He says, Yeah, come on by, now's a good time; the shop's empty, there ain't nobody around. So, I come on by, get down...

Re: Joke of the Day

The other night I was up on stage working, and some wiseguy out in the audience decides to shout out and asks me about my job --all of a sudden I'm hearing, Hey buddy! What do you for a living?!

So I says, Listen pal, I find flautists for your sister!, OK?

Re: Joke of the Day

One day when I was a kid coming back home from school, and so my mom asks me what I learned that day. And I said, Mom, I asked the music techer to explain the difference between a flutist and a flautist. And my mom says, Oh yeah?, and what did the teacher tell you, honey :?: So, I says, Mom, Teacher...

Re: Joke of the Day

I went to see my friend the flautist --you know him, my friend the flautist Vinnie Boombatz! I said, Vinnie, every morning during practice I take one look at my embouchure in the mirror and suddenly I got to go throw up! I said, Vinnie, can't somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong; can't anybody tell...

Re: Have We Given Our Flutes Names? (And/Or Piccs-N-Saxes!)

To be fair, there wasn't any firm agreement worked out, so "selling out from under me" wouldn't be appropriate under these circumstances and a very poor choice of words by myself, I might also add; but to the best of my knowledge Mr. Roboto is still there, domo aragato!

Re: Have We Given Our Flutes Names? (And/Or Piccs-N-Saxes!)

823 and it's Luke Prodigal Son/Unjust Steward; but I was thinking more along the line of Kilroy/Mr Roboto & Styx. I haven't met Styx yet, tho. We had a bit of a mishap in the shop the other day, so they might sell Mr Roboto out from under me, but let's see what happens... Still too early to tell: I ...

Hmm, HWNSNBS or maybe run to the closest Zondervan's and look to see what prophet is on page 666: for instance, looking at what I got here it'd be my pleasure to introduce you to Ezekiel! (chapter 40 if for those interested.) Son of dust... :twisted:

Re: Name of flutist who appears to be breathless

Yeah, was just making some of my patent doofus humor there, sorry! But hey, that "steady-stream" approach might work better for trumpet players, I'm thinking. Although, I managed to get some staccato notes out puffing like a goldfish all the while managing a steady inhalation just now here a moment ...

Re: Greetings :) (and advice!)

Of course, I fancy the boys at MIT can make some really spiffy metronomes using gyroscopes and multicolored LED's; do, might want to look into what modern science has to offer as well! ( The boys at MIT, sexist? I think not. It has long been known that the girls went to Jupiter to more stupider. -Ed...
