Tune The Flute

I name this tune in honour of all the flute players in the world, who warm up their flutes till they go sharp and then don’t bother retuning them :-)

Why don’t you call it "Crohn’s"?

Sorry, I’m always flat.

Flat did you say, eh? ~ just for you: “The Detuned The Flute”

M: 4/4
L: 1/8
R: reel
N: This has been tested and approved on an open system flute in the key of D ;-)

K: g minor

So, is that enough flats for you? :-P

I’m not going to learn half-holing until I learn all the straight G major tunes!

Retune The Flute

You just gave me inspiration to mess about with a new setting, ‘c’.

Now I’m happy, see ~ :-)

That should convince you. I liked your first part, but I couldn’t quite take to the B-part, not sure why. Now I like both parts…

Hiro, forget the ‘half-holing’, you don’t need that, some duck tape will do the job for you for less effort… ;-)

See, two smilies, I must be happy, am’t I?

I’ve already gone off the version I just did and now prefer the original again. Maybe just to spite you…

I know it’s because I threatened you with the broken end of a whiskey bottle and called you names… You just can’t take it… And now the two smilies ~ the balance of yin and yang is out of synch… How about this as a balance:

:-P

I still can’t believe you have the gall to call any of this ‘original’… You need to start filtering that silly water you drink down under in Sydney, and you need to start washing your veggies and fruit before eating them. You might also get one of those badges that registers radiation exposure too…

~ ~ ~ No, I can’t make another smilie, this comments section is already past its limit…

I prefer the g minor take myself…

You know actually I think changing the key was a pretty cheap trick to be honest. And you call me unoriginal? Tcheh.

:-/

Hey, I never pretended it was anything other than a ‘cheap’ jibe at Hiro. Jeez, you take things so seriously. Besides, I didn’t call YOU unoriginal, I mean, as if I could, someone that sticks out like a pile of fly and beetle alive croc compost would in the middle of the Sydney Opera House. ORIGINAL ~ YES! ~ And thank the gods and Gods they broke the mold and burned the plans after making you… Can you imagine an army of you, I’d be looking for the furthest island without an airport or a seaport…or need to be institutionalized…

Ha what about an army of *you*? Your army would be the perfect global peace-keeping force. All you would have to do would be to command them all to start talking at the warring sides until they both agreed to make friends just to shut you up.

Or set us up in concrete golashes before sending us off a pier for a swim…

But ~ the army is coming and we know where you live… And you thought alien abduction was just a fantasy…

I’ve already given my little green buddies specifics on how to deal with you ~ first your hat…
