    so, my bass teacher told me the order of #'s is:
    father charles goes down and empties bottle

    and b's:

    bottle empty and down goes charles' father.

    And he also talked about circle of fifths. The number of #'s and b's on the circle don't match the number of #'s and b's in the little saying.

    What's he talking about?? pls give me a clue or url.

    At a recent gig, our singer introduced us as "Touched by a Priest".

    whats up with all that?!?!
    theres a movie called "the dangerous lives of altar boys" coming out....it has nothing to do with molested children...but given current events(or rather slightly older news) thats a funky title for a movie!
     
  6. On Jay Leno they had a sneak preview of the sequel to that movie "The Really Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys". In the sequel it's not only priests, but Michael Jackson too :eek:!

    actually, I found the (bass related) reference I was looking for

    it seems to be the number of sharps and flats in the key signature

    so, everybody can go back to whatever you were doing with priests.

    (next time, I'll start something about nuns)
