As I am relatively new to this playing field, I\'ve been surfing the web everytime someone makes a comment with a word in it I don\'t understand. On my last trip out (trying to define \"fugata\"), I stumbled upon these:
portamento: a foreign country you\'ve always wanted to see.
conductor: the man who punches your ticket to Birmingham.
arpeggio: \"Ain\'t he that storybook kid with the big nose that grows?\"
tempo: good choice for a used car.
A 440: the highway that runs around Nashville.
tenor: two hours before a nooner.
diminished fifth: an empty bottle of Jack Daniels.
