mandoleer Losing your voice in a smoky pub? (72* d) RE: Losing your voice in a smoky pub? 04 Apr 05

Well, guest, some of us prefer non-smoking pubs, but the best sessions can be in the smoky ones at times. It's the smell left on your hair and clothes when you leave as much as the effect while you are there. As to car exhausts, I certainly wouldn't sit in a room with one, let alone half a dozen, and I wouldn't ban people from smoking out of doors (so long as they are downwind of me). Nitpick time: Mira, Affect please not Effect when it's something causing something. The farts have an effect on your voice, but they affect it badly. (I love nitpicking!) Simple answer - curried beans before you go on and drown the others out. Don't forget that in the days of music hall, there were acts that played tunes on their farts. Le Petomane was probably the best known, but there were others.
