Jerry used to drink tonic water (sometimes called quinine water on the other side of the pond) for the relief of leg cramps. To avoid the sugar in it, he bought the diet version which has zero calories. We ran into a friend in the market and she asked what we were looking for and, when we replied, "diet tonic water" she asked, "Can't you just drink chromatic water?"

A musician walks into a music shop and says he's interested in buying an accordion. The assistant invites him to look at the range "they're all displayed on the wall over there".

Five minutes later the musician walks up to the assistant with a big grin and says "I'm interested in the big red one".

The assistant says "You're a drummer aren't you".

"Oh, how did you guess?"

"That, sir, is a radiator!"

A jazz drummer won the lottery. He was asked what he was going to do with the money. He said he would keep playing till it was all gone.

Do you know what was inscribed on the blues singer's tombstone?

I suppose that one of the best "musical" musical jokes was the one that Bela Bartok made against Dimitry Shostakovich. In the first movement of the latter's seventh symphony, "The Leningrad", we find the same theme repeated over and over, in fact some 40-odd times. Bartok clearly hated this and in the short Intermezzo of his "Concerto for Orchestra" he introduces this very same theme, which is followed by the trombones playing a very loud "rasberry"! Now that's what I call a "musical" joke!

What's the best thing to play a bodhran with?
A razor blade.
What is the difference between a bodhran player and a terrorist?
Terrorists have sympathisers.
What's the difference between a banjo and a chain saw?
The chain saw has greater dynamic range.
There's nothing I like better than the sound of a banjo, unless of course it's the sound of a chicken caught in a vacuum cleaner.
What does it mean when a guitar player is drooling out both sides of his mouth?
The stage is level.

Once there was a man who played the cello, but it was peculiar in that it had only one string, and he was peculiar in that he used it to play one note again and again. At length, him wife presumed to ask him, "Dear, have you ever noticed that other people have cellos with four strings, and they move their fingers around on them and play different notes?" "Sure," he said. "They're looking for the place. I've found it."

A C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says: "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So, the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open fifth between them.
After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and the G is out flat. An F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.
A D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me. I'll just be a second." An A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor. Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and exclaims: "Get out now! You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar tonight."
Eventually, the C sobers up, and realizes in horror that he's under a rest. The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at an upscale correctional facility.
