    Stumped on this.
    Thought it was Kenny, but he scored some crackers for us....

    Re my last cryptic clue: the 'falling from your eyes' bit was to both mislead and encourage. It was 'scales' that was was the clue. A mode is a type of musical scale. I was going to give Mixolydian as the third clue but that would have been a give-away. That is, of course, a variety of rabbit.

    So the answer was "Mode"?

    You are correct with Miller, by the way. He may have scored a few, but he had many horrible misses ...... one in particular

    Have another go, but try to keep it more straightforward, maybe ....
