To say nothing off all those jazz musicians who have gone, or are going crazy
because of all that back pressure created by blowing a brass instrument, or the
squeaks and squawks inherent in reeds, or the awful mind bending experience of
trying to play things you hear in you mind, that are impossible on your instrument.
I'd settle for "Guitar Nipples" any day. ;-)
