    We got licky, our director was the same for all of my four years (hs) plus two for Jr HS. He was a pretty darn good trombone player and he held the bar quite high. For example one of our continuous players was William Tell Oveture, at speed, which is quite a challenge.

    Being a genuine 'olde phart (h.s. 61-64),that stuff was something we knew very little about. Post Navy(64-68), different story.

    I just watched a rockumentary on Metallica and James Hetfield uses lighted dots. Surprised me.

    A '63 B-18 was my first real amp around '66. I added the surface mount pickup from a Kent P Bass copy to my EB0 for a more usable tone from both.

    You might want to pm agedhorse. He's your go to guy.
    You could also inquire at one of those clubs. The Mesa users are a pretty respectable bunch.

    I was a wide receiver.:hyper: Running a hundred yards in full dress with a football isn't tough at all.:smug: The painful part is not getting past the three or four guys on the other team that out weigh you by about 50% and are rewarded for breaking your bones or permanently taking you out of the game.:dead:

    Let's see. In hs, I weighed about 115#, stood 5'4",wore glasses,etc. Nope! No football for me; the sax was enuff!
     
  14. We always kept spit rags handy. Usually old washcloths, old diapers[1], or old tee shirts.

    [1] Mom kept those for cleaning rags; they tended to last well. We did that, too.
     
  15. Yow! That's a workout at "normal" speed.

  16. Someone ni Heart- probably Howard Leese- had lights on his guitar, but I can't recall if it was at all to help find positions, or just for effect.

    I think it says they are used overstock but in like new condition. Not sure exactly what they mean by "overstock" unless they were demos hanging on a wall. If f so might or might not have been abused, but still listed as new inventory that nobody in the store wants to buy because of dings or scuffs or some other cosmetic or production flaw.

    All that said, it's still a good price if they play well and damage is minimal. But I doubt they have a return policy like Guitar Center, who sells like new VPs for about a hundred bucks more. It's a gamble, but i suppose it could save a few bucks if you're lucky.

    Bodily fluids were just considered gross when I was a kid in school. Now days I think it would trigger a HazMat response.:roflmao:
     
  19. I was a small cornerback. The painful part was when tackling someone that weighed almost double, and having them land on you.
    The one real painful part wasn’t the one ambulance ride... it was equally uncomfortable as the hit I took that landed me in the ambulance.

    Jeez, that's a helluva hit to knock you all the way into the ambulance:smug:. Glad you survived both.
