The Bassist & The Violist

Discussion in 'Bass Humor [DB]' started by MikeBarber, Dec 14, 2004.

  1. At a rehearsal, the conductor stops and shouts to the bass section: "You are out of tune. Check it, please!"

    The first bassist pulls all his strings, says, "Our tuning is correct: all the strings are equally tight."

    The first violist turns around and shouts, "You bloody idiot! It's not the tension. The pegs have to be parallel!"
