    I've been racking my brain trying to think of some brass banding CRS terms. Can't think of any. I mean, nothing rhymes with "euphonium" or "trombone" does it? Anyone better at rhyming than me feel free to make some suggestions...

    When playing in a previous band, under the man himself, we'd sometimes comment that 'this music is a bit Dudley Bright!'..... ;-) meaning 'not very good' (unlike Dudley, obviously, to clear up confusion, etc, etc, etc!)

    Just a moot point, but how can it be CRS if you give the rhyming word that relates to the item in question.

    It should be something along the lines of
    Ice Cream - Trombone
    D'oyle - Bass
    Gum - Euph
    Cut - Tenor Horn
    Jump - Sop or Allysa - Soprano
    Chain - Bass Trombone Mild - Percussion
    Kidnapper - Conductor
    That's - Cornet
    Yahoo - Flugel

    See next post for rhyming couplet

    It should be something along the lines of
    Ice Cream - Trombone (the missing words being "and cone")
    D'oyle - Bass (and Lace)
    Gum - Euph (and Tooth)
    Cut - Tenor Horn (and Shorn)
    Jump - Sop (and Bop) or Allysa - Soprano (Milano)
    Chain - Bass Trombone (and Saw) :tongue:
    Mild - Percussion (Concussion)
    Kidnapper - Conductor (and Abductor)
    That's - Cornet (torn it)
    Yahoo - Flugel (and Google)

    Pick a word. Find another word that rhymes with it. Add an associated word in front of the rhyming word. hey Presto Cockney Rhyming Slang

    Dog and Bone = Phone
    Apples and Pears = Stairs
    Rub a Dub = Pub
    Whistle and Flute = Suit
    Butcher's Hook = Look
    Joker Lucre = Smooker
    Sky Rocket = Pocket
    Plates of Meat = Feet

    etc ad infinitum.

    In the olden days only the first part of the rhyming couplet would be said. You would only know what the other person was saying if you knew the rhyme. Alledgedly invented in london in WWII in case of a German invasion, but more likely a language developed by thieves (some say upto 60 years earlier) to esnure that the gentry didn't know what was bsing discussed. This type of Slang is also known as Cant.
