As concertmaster of a string quartet, I'm noticing a problem-- it's difficult to come up with a signal that:
a) is easy to make while playing
b) gets the quartet's attention
c) doesn't get the audience's attention
d) is meaningful
So, naturally, I decided to mosey over here to see what solutions others have found for last-second signals such as "repeat", "stop", and "keep going".
Currently, I'm tempted to have someone wire a stomp button for me on a circuit board with three LEDs on it in three colors.
