I got a nice Shania Twain concert DVD for xmas. She plays an A/E Taylor, and looks DAMN nice doing so ...

I know she used to use a Viper. Wouldn't you have thought the suits would have done everything they could to lock her up into an artist endoresment. Maybe they tried and got outdone by Taylor.

There's not a lot of woman I'd leave my wife for (OK, maybe there is ...) but Shania Twain is one of them. Just think of the fun we'd have playing guitars together.

Anyway, the DVD is a MUST SEE on many different levels.

Shania would look great playing a tuba.

Even a flute may be too big. How about a piccolo?

Is this a plug for Taylor or Shania?

Speaking of flutes and piccolos ---- before modern manufacturing techniques piccolos where derivitives of flutes from Italy. In the town of La Spesia there was an annual harvest festival held sea side. The olive farmers of the region would gather, bringing a liter of oil from the first pressing. A big fire was started and an iron cauldron was suspended above it. Each family would empty their flagons of oil in the pot. After which, flutes gathered from the village were put in the warming oil. While the oil came to a boil the community would make merry; eating, dancing, drinking and what not. At the end of the evening the pot of boiled erstwhile flutes was taken down and the new piccolos were retrieved and distributed. The festival, no longer necessary for piccolo production, is still held and is known as the Mediteranian Flute Fry.

Just a bit of history.

Tuppy must have gotten his idea for the string tube and reflective bowl paint while attending the Flute Fry ... ;) :D

There's something missing from the story, though it sounds like fun. What did they do with the flute flavored oil? And they retrieved the piccolos, from where? Is the what not, piccolo making?

I love these kinds of festivals, once I was on an out island in the bahamas, stumbled into Junkanoo at 5:00am. The girls wore almost nothing. And they want everyone to dance, it was a blast.

You mean the flutes went into the pot, were boiled in oil, and came out as piccolos? OK, I guess, boiling in oil will shrink most things.
