Ah, that's a cool one Gloucester! 
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Thanks, that's a brilliant site. Has anyone found something similar covering classical music?

Doubt it is what you want!

Thank you very much, Gloucester. I will browse that site when I get home. The internet connection is atrocious at this guest near Cape Town where I'm staying for 3 days.

Tanks Dave. That is useful resource for deciphering the "in crowd" jargon that some of us...(that would be me) ....do not understand.

I am almost amused by some of the help postings that use all sorts of new age terms that only further confuse those that are seeking basic information.
