    Before someone whinges or tries to impart a holier-than-thou-attitude (can't think which 2 posters that would be :tongue:), and just to let everyone know BEFORE the Northwest area (you even know my band, so not hiding anything)..... MD has put 4 of my rep bars onto front row cornet. NOT because I can't play it, NOT because we're cheating, purely because he wants a brighter sound on those particular bars. No skin off my nose. Isn't it boring when we're upfront about things and don't try to stir the s**t, cast aspercions or make allude to things that may or may not have happened... :rolleyes:

    And if you think about it this way - the players themselves don't cheat... they only do what the conductor's asked them to do. :rolleyes: On THEIR heads be it....

    No, Bob's all right. Respect for the elderly!

    At the risk of being hit with posts about Godwin's Law, "I was only following orders" was never a very good defence!

    That said, I will freely admit to swapping about 5 lines at the end of Pag with the guy sat next to me, on our MD's suggestion. I couldn't wait to get rid of it though, so happy to do as I'm told :wink:

    I''l let you know what we're "cheating" at on the basses when we start rehearsing it proper, although it's so cleverly written I doubt we'll do much other than what's on the part.
