Hi Graham,

>Trevor, IIRC you didn't officially sign up as a helper, but you're in
charge of the "Inspirational Headwords".  If you could come up with
something for Pitches and Rhythms soon, that would be awesome.  Remember
that these don't need to be existing, famous pieces of music; a portion
of your own compositions would be great for Rhythms.  Also remember that
we can always update stuff later.  Let's get something to slap in there
to demonstrate the concept.  :)

Will do.

Also, your power shenanigans are bizarre ... ;-)
