Oh wait, I already did.

Yep, on Tuesday, I played in Carnegie Hall itself. Not on guitar or bass, but tuba, with my high school band. I must say, Carnegie Hall is close to perfection. It was a blast playing in there, and I even got a solo.

Congratulations! That must've been a great experience, and one you'll remember your whole life.

That's really cool. Congrats on "making it".


I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
It was them that turned me to drink.

There aren't enough good tuba solos in music.

Used to be, was a part of me felt like hiding.. but now it comes through. Comes through to you.

Practice , practice , practice ! (Sorry , I couldn't resist ! )

If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .

And to think I went to the trouble of "drumming up" a Mapquest to get to Carnagie Hall. :oops:

Very cool! Congrats. I've seen a performance there and its quite an amazing venue.

Oric, by the way, were you referencing the George Carlin bit?

There are. You just have to wait around a lot.

Taso- I'm a George Carlin fan, but I don't know which bit you're referring to.

Ah, well, I don't have the video on hand, but it was his first time at Carnegie Hall, and he started off the video with a clip from him on the streets of NYC, asking people how to get to Carnegie Hall... I can't remember any of the good lines...But it was amusing.
