BLADE: I moved to play my DS into the room above you the other night when I realised you were playing your cello.
HRH: Yeah, it sounded pretty good, you know.
A: You heard me? Both on the floor above and below? I was playing with a heavy practice mute!
HRH: Your end pin is a sound conductor. I was sitting at the other end of the basement and I heard it just fine.
A: I can’t believe this. For some arcane reason I feel moved to play scales and then a nasty Dotzauer etude full of evil little shifts, and you guys think it sounds good and want to hear more?
BLADE: I wondered if it would be acceptable to bang on the floor and yell, “Play louder!”
