Tutti = The easy Bits
(Paraphrased from someone's siggy) Rallentando = slowing down as you approach a bit you cannot play.
Topic =1. A chocolate bar with a hazelnut in every bite; 2. a very loose interpretation of the subject of an internet forum thread
Solo - So quiet we can't hear it!
Andante - The range of speeds that a marching band sets off at. In order to control this tempo and avoid unsightly shuffling, you need to ensure the trombones are all shorter than 5'6".
A long time ago, tMP had reputation points, where you could + or - a person's reputation if you liked or disliked a post. It all seemed a bit silly to me, especially when I realised I was miffed about a negative laid against me. The problem was, you didn't know who was 'dissing' you, so had no right to reply. (Sound familiar?)
For whatever reasons, TMM pulled the plug.
I do like the concept of a simple "Like" button, though.
'Contest' - Trying before you buy a new Trombone
Quavers - a light cheesy snack obtained in conjunction with "bar lines" and "bar" (posts 8 and 7)
Semi-Quavers - the result of your bass player sitting on the above.
Cornet - a receptical for Ice Cream
'Repiano' - (Re: Piano) An email to all players, asking them to play quieter.
For old tMPers:
Sparkling Quavers: Cake maker extraordinary
Practice Mute - A device for playing quiet passages in a contest
something for percussionists to do during quiet passages
Test Piece - approx 3 weeks and 12 minutes of unpleasantness before a pint of expensive fizzy lager in a soulless bar venue.
Semi-quavers - composers / publishers / printers errors found in EEb /BBb bass parts.
Only three weeks, Elvis?
In recent times yes !! 3 weeks x 5 nights each week !!
Over cooked = Rehearsing the Regional Qualifier test piece from the day it is announced in September.
'We only started the piece a few weeks ago' means 'We've done two rehearsals a week on it for the last 4 months'
Whit Friday Contest - Drinking spree ruined by the occassional walk to contest rings
remarks - Where an adjudicator listens to a perforamce again, after the contest, and decides that in all fairness, it should have won, even though it was placed 5th on the day.
