Subject: RE: Instrument-specific jokes
In the Folk music competition,the overly dressed man in a tuxedo and bow tie, took his mint condition Stradivarius from it's top of the range case and played a beautiful tune... but very badly. The next violinist came up. He wore a mid range suit and cheap shoes and opened his mid range case to remove a perfectly serviceable mid range violin. He also started to play a beautiful tune but just as badly as the first man. The last man, clad in tatty trousers with frayed bottoms, a jacket with holes in, no shoes but socks with holes in, took his battered case and opened it, to pull out a poor quality violin which had one string missing. He produced a bow which had obviously seen better days and applied roisin to the strings. But.......... when he started to play........... it's obvious really isn't it...... He was as bad if not worse than the other two.
