Default Congrats to me!

Might not mean much to most, but I just passed the last of eleven fingering exams for graduation. 'Had to take written fingering tests for Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, French Horn, Euphonium, Trombone, Tuba and Percussion rudiments.

Um, Congratulations? I passed fingering in high school and it felt great!....oh, talking about music! Sorry, I really couldn't resist.

In all seriousness, that's an awesome accomplishment, very well done sir.

That's a lot of instruments...

You're a one man cigar smoking Prince/George Michael with all those instruments under your belt.

When's the first album coming out?
