Geez Wayne... I had trouble getting past rule #1..
I realize that this is tongue-in-cheek, but some make sense.
#5: I've always felt that if everyone incorrectly plays a note short,
then you are wrong to insist on playing it long (by yourself)
#8: If everyone but you skipped two measures, then maybe you should
catch up (which probably comes under the heading of "listen")
#13: My pet peeve... why do players (even pro or quasi-pro) insist on
playing 1 or 2 measures after the conductor stops? and then start to
practice a phrase while the conductor is talking to the group?
