What a conductor gives to an out-of-tune player?
You perform this in Spring
Sung by musical miners?
Those behind bars keeps tabs on this
Sounds something like a big colourful Spanish bird
A pretty endearing advance
Loosen your shoes
Find a French fishy ratio
A teenager causing trouble?
Scottish cooking method
Sliced in private
A little bed made of bones
A long lasting weird religion?
A cereal, relatively speaking
Exact copy of Warhammer people
- Start solving clues.
- See what the answers have in common: The more you get the more obvious it will be what connects them.
- When you get the connection look at the title. It will give you a hint to the final answer.
- Give (a) the answers to the clues and (b) the final answer, which is a well-known phrase.
Once you understand the connection, it is possible to obtain some of the answers without fully understanding their clue. Extra kudos to you if you convincingly explain all the clues as well as solve them.
I think that this is a tough challenge but, knowing you puzzlers, you may prove me wrong! If it proves absolutely impossible then let me know in the comments and I'll give some extra hint(s). Take heart - Once you get any two of the clues, you will be able to see the connection and the whole thing will become much easier.
I have been a little bit evil by trying to start you off on a false trail (This is in the clues. There are no tricks in the instructions etc). Once you start to solve things you will see through my impishness and be able to ignore it.
Co-operation is welcome if puzzlers want to solve this together. I don't mind either way. Partial answers will gain up-votes and help others to give further partial answers.
I had to omit one tag because it would have given away the pattern that you are trying to find.
