Thread Name: Help: Jew's Harp question!
Subject: RE: Help: Jew's Harp question!
This cracks me up!!! Mike and khandu sum it up for me!!! LMAO!!!!!!! I can't do it although I do OK with a mouthbow....sorta'.

Now my Ol' Man on the other hand...............Readers of this forum will recall that my Dad was tremendous practicla joker. He didn't play any instrument at all including this one, but a lot of guys thought he did. How you ask? He could imitate the sound perfectly and he'd hold his hand up with the thing in the classic mouth covered position and go through the motions while twanging away vocally. I guess this is some sort of talent, but I could never believe he fooled people with it! Another railroader said to me at his funeral, "Your Dad could really play that Jew's harp too!".........Provided some great comic relief for me and I didn't have the heart to tell him that the Ol' Man once again was getting the last laugh.
