    I forgot that I need to keep this post close to the quiz. However, now it will be posted before the quiz since this will bump it, however then I could bump up the quiz.....

    this post doesn't need to be kept close to the quiz. Think of it as two games in one:

    Music quiz plus Hide the Thimble.

    Maybe next time you could put the answers in the same post. Tell people to wear a blindfold
    until they've completed the test.

    Or, let's see, do the test in one room and keep the answers in...

    Never mind!
