I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

This is not standard, modern notation.

comment Does an implied tie exist
In the same sense, you could call a fermata 'somewhat similar'.

comment Does an implied tie exist
There are other instances in musical notation with implied notation such as an accidental carrying over to other notes in the same measure. As to let ring and sostenuto, this is not hold[ing] a note through the duration of all the notes. There is but pone lengthy note being played in these instances.

comment Does an implied tie exist
I see. A tied note should work for your purposes. If it makes it any easier, a tie can cover more than two notes.

Yes it was. I'll delete it to clear things up (seeing as it's inapplicable now).

Well, if you're looking for the type of tool, Dr Mayhem just described it. If you're looking for the best brand, you're off-topic.

Are there any dangers of hot climates? Also, are there any long term effects of frequently leaving amps in cold areas (with proper warming up afterwards)?

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
This is rather impracticable. First, few people have the resources to solder. Second, just getting that little bit soldered would cost way more than it's worth, and third, filing it down to the right amount would take forever. If you look at hotpaw2's answer, you can see how little needs to be added.

comment Trumpet - Charles Colin Lip Flexibilities Vol. 1 Exercise 1
I see. It seems the notation could go either way. The author does not explicitly mention to bend it, as you say. There is no way to say "do it this way" and be sure of it. My advice would be to practice it both ways.

comment Trumpet - Charles Colin Lip Flexibilities Vol. 1 Exercise 1
If the author doesn't explicitly direct bending the notes, I'd say don't bend them. It seems, from what you said, the author states later in the book that you should bend notes while lip trilling. If you were supposed to bend them in this exercise, he would probably have said so.
