  36. “The best advice was from my father at an early age when we were making music. I would make mistakes, and I would ask, ‘What do you do?’ And he’d say, in Dutch, ‘Gewoon door blijven gaan,’ which means keep pedaling. Don’t stop and don’t let the audience know you made a mistake. Or smile and do it twice so the audience thinks you meant it.“ TA O O F E D D I E VA N H A L E N KEEP PEDALING [CREDIT: DR. VINCE SCHMIDT, YOUTUBE VIDEO]

Nigel: Exactly. Martin: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder? Nigel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where? Martin: I don't know. Nigel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do? Martin: Put it up to eleven. Nigel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder. Martin: Why don't you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder? [Pause.] Nigel: These go to eleven. [CREDIT: SPINAL TAP, YOUTUBE VIDEO]
