    Here is a list of some brass & percussion instruments:

    • Cornet
      Trumpet
      Soprano
      Flugel Horn
      Tenor Horn
      French Horn
      Baritone
      Euphonium
      Bass
      Side Drum
      Bass Drum
      Hi-hat
    Each housemate must come up with a different sentence formed of the initial letters of those items - and each sentence must be RELEVANT to the topic i.e. Brass Banding.

    For example:

    CORNET (Conical Object, Rather Nice, Exquisite Tone)

    Each housemate - 2nd man down, homicidalbennyboy, seedhouse, super_sop & kitten - must post their sentences in this thread by 10pm tomorrow night.

    Enjoy,

    BB.

    Cornet – Corny over rated. Never elegant tunes.

    Trumpet – Tinny, raucus unpleasant, mute please every time!

    Soprano – squeeky ‘orrible pointless rather annoying nasty object!

    Flugel Horn – Fine lovely, unusual gloriously elegant lyricist. High on range normally.

    Tenor Horn – Tasteful, endearing , not ordinarily raucus. Hardly over recognised nowadays.

    French Horn – Flipping ridiculous european nasty crappy horn. Has orchestral roots normally

    Baritone – Being alto ranged, instrument tuneful only never ‘eard.

    Euphonium – Ever underestimated pair having only notes in upward motion.

    Bass – Boring as sin, seriously

    Side Drum – snared instrument, decisively exact. Driving rythym under MD.

    Bass Drum – Banged always, serious sound. Dynamic Range usually modest.

    Hi-hat – Hittable instruments. Hard and tinny

    dear s_s
    seeing as it's an instrument in a Brass Band we'l lclass it as being Brass Band related.

    Hello BB, I have a busy day tomorrow as I have rehearsals most of the day, and then a school concert in the morning.
    However I will still do the task, but I may have a problem getting it posted online- I will try my best to get it online.
    If I can't get online, can I send it to someone to post it on for me, or can we have a slight extension to 12pm- lunchtime the next day pleeeeeease?

    Yay! Found time in school (a few hours it has taken me! :shock: ) to complete the deadline on time, rather than within my extension (thanks for giving it to me anyway BB! :roll: :wink: )
    Took a lot of time and effort, and my brains in overload, but anyway:

    Cornet - Calm Only Random, Not Easily Tuned!

    Trumpet - Trashy, Rotten. Upper Middle Pitch, Easily Tuneful!

    Soprano - Sounds Operatic, Pleasant Ranged, Always Nearly OK!

    Flugel Horn - Flourishingly Lavish, Under Gracious Embouchure Lips. Has Other Recognised Niceties!

    Tenor Horn – Tantalisingly, Extremely Nice, Over Rainbows- Heard Occasionally, Rarely Nicely!!!

    French horn – Fascinatingly Rubbish, Extremely Not Childish, Horrifically Overly Retarded Notes!

    Baritone – Baritone Are, Really, Interesting. Terrifically Often Nearly Elegant!

    Euphonium – Exuberant Upper Pitches, However Only Normal, Is Unusually Moving!

    Bass - Booming And Seriously Sexy!

    Side Drum – Slick, Ideally Diametrically Extravagant, Dangerous, Robust, Under Maintenance!

    Bass Drum – Basically Always Satanic Sounding, During Random Unusual Movements!

    Hi-hat – Hit Irritably, Hard And Terribly!


    Hope that's ok :wink: (it best be! :( )

    BB would like to congratulate the housemates on an excellent task. There are some super sentences on offer there. However, quite a few liberties have been taken. BB was prepared to overlook these as long as the instruments were spelt properly.

    With this in mind, would Seedouse please explain to BB what a 'French Orn' or a 'Frenc Horn' is?

    Perhaps you should have taken advatnage of BB's generosity in allowing you an extension Seedhouse? As a result of asking for an extension - and ignoring it - no more concessions are to made to any housemate in any future tasks.

    Therefore, BB is sad ;) to say that the housemates have failed this task.

    Your forfeit will take the form of a quiz and is to be posted soon. However, there will be a reward on offer if housmates manage to complete the quiz. A reward I am sure that will make 'most of you' want to pass the quiz! ;)

    Don't worry about it Seedhouse, I thought that task was much harder than it looked!!

    We'll walk the quiz!

    Unlucky housemates, a terrific effort from all :tup :tup

    Time for a little drinky I think. :guiness
