Musical acronyms

Post by GeoffB » Wed Feb 23, 2011 9:58 pm

The object of this game is to take any musical term (e.g. guitar, scherzo, Bach, apoyando, etc.) and turn it into an acronym (a word made up from the initial letters of other words), preferably providing a definition of the original word in the process.

For example, Dowland: Doleful Oldie Who Liked A Nice Dirge.
(No disrespect to Dowland, whose music I'm very fond of, by the way :wink: )

pompous instrument avidly nurturing ostentatiously formal, overblown & ridiculously tedious etudes.
