Re: Pekaar Encyclopedia

What exactly is the point behind creating bots that aimlessly cycle through and bog down things, such as the Pekaar Encyclopedia?

Re: Practice, Fireside, Shuttle, Mouth-blown small?? Help

Any mouthblown small pipe should meet your criteria. One in the key of Bflat or A will have finger spacing closest to the GHB.
