Inquiries from my Inbox: Janis writes, “For an easy-to-use, much safer heavy hotel mute, get a couple earth magnets and clap them together around the bridge near the center, over the heart cutout.”
Random Musical Thought: Wouldn’t it be interesting if the audience didn’t know the “set list” for a recital until they were actually at the concert?
