When this conversaton turned to the matter of the listener's interpretation
of a solo I was bound and determined to stay out of it.

However, following what Bob just had to say on the subject, I must briefly
inject the fact that I must be a freak of nature as I fit the description of
how a musician listens to a solo, rather than that of the non-musician.

I guess what it really depends upon is when Bob offers this analysis of the
situation is he pronouncing the silent "t" in often
