    Sliding Embouchure

    Just some advice really, please. Since having my ceramic braces fitted about a year ago I always get a pressure sore from the main archwire on the top right hand side of my mouth. Where my lip sits on the wire it tends to cut in and dig, no matter how much wax I put on it. I play on a Denis...

    Too much detail....

    Christmas Rant!

    Not mine, but I had to copy this from the TES website as it had me in stitches... "Sorry, I wasn't going to do this again this year - I made a real effort to adopt a cheery Christmas happy-head, but a trip into town led me into Scroogality once more.Why do so many people feel they have to do...

    Chuggers (as in, charity muggers) - good thing or bad thing? I slid my way into town this morning to do a bit of shopping and I was stopped by an NSPCC guy asking me for '28p in January'. Part of me feels really, really bad for saying no, but I already donate to charities of my choice, and I...

    Music Magpie

    Has anyone else used music magpie? I've just put a bunch of CDs in there (admittedly 50 or so) and been offered £115!! Quite impressed as I also have some listed on eBay and it was a LOT quicker than doing that and also at least a guaranteed sum of money.

    Blu-ray vs Sky HD

    If you had a choice between Sky HD or a Blu-ray player - what would you choose? I am considering one or of the other after Christmas, but can't make my mind up!

    Black and white to colour!

    Try this.... There’s a black dot in the center. Stare at the dot till the countdown ends, and the black and white picture should look like it’s in colour…until you move your eyes!

    The Secret of Monkey Island

    Does anyone else remember this absolute classic PC game from the early 1990s? LucasArts have re-released it as a digital download, and have completely updated all the graphics and given the characters audio speech etc. When you're playing it you can instantly 'switch' between the classic and...

    More 'Logic' Help

    I am trying to open a MIDI file created in Logic (not the pro version) on Sibelius to edit the score etc. However, it keeps telling me it needs to be a 'MIDI file 0 or 1' when I try to open it in Sibelius. I have done a little online research, and apparently it is a Logic problem. I can save...

    Logic v Cubase Question

    I have been using Cubase for many years now, but my new job involves using Macs, and in that respect - Logic. Most of basic user features seem to basically the same, but the one I can't find is the 'SNAP' feature in the quantize settings. Does anyone know if Logic has such a function, just...

    The saddest noise in the world.....

    ..... was the tiny little *crunch* the screen on my iPod made when I knelt on it :frown: (not my new 80 gig one luckily!) Its probably the most expensive thing I own that I have accidentally trashed (apart from my car!). Anyone going to make me feel better and tell me they've managed to ruin...

    GCSE Music 'shock'

    I didn't want to hijack the 'Where is JonP?' thread, but I was interested in something in something mikelyons said about GCSE Music becoming easier. Right or wrong?
