I'm pretty sure the Wednesday night improv class has been winnowed down to its final roster. Here's the instrumentation:
No horns (!)
It'll be a good semester. Really different, but good. All the guitars read music, so that's a definite plus (I would've lost the betting pool on whether or not I was asked the question "Do you teach this class in tabs?" this semester). With everyone's different strings and the weird temperature of the room, it sure makes tuning interesting. At any rate, it's like Dingus said: "The world needs more chording instruments."
The WORD OF THE DAY is prestidigitation.
