#2 The same but also grab

#3,4,5,6 - whatever you want ;) they get +10 to hit +10 to damage +10d6 sonic damage on every attack after #1&2 start singing.
I see those IC tips a lot but wonder how kosher they really are: both words of creation and DFI refer to the IC bonus the bard would normally have, I read that as being according to the class description and thus excluding bonuses from spells, items, and feats.
Tactical use of alter self to get other forms of movement, or insane natural armor (see Tren) is highly recommended. Really, bards can do anything!
