I don't get it...
There's Good Cop/Bad Cop...
Then there are methods that violate the Geneva Convention.
Hence the term "Kilt In Action".
Why do pipers walk when they play?
They're trying to get away from the sound, too...
Bagpipes - an instrument that sounds exactly the same AFTER you learn to play it...
If you're trapped with a banjo player, you could do a lot worse than Noam Pikelny
The only consolation for a person who plays the banjo is that other instruments use the same jokes.
I don't think most Banjo-ists will understand this written/notated directive.
Maybe just verbally convey your request?
Top local guitarist would take any gig he could get with his banjo (tuned as guitar so he could play the thing). Hired to play some banjo crap for the Symphony Pops. Oboe player does the standard ‘A’ for tuning winds, brass then strings. Our banjo player plays BOING BOING BOING with his untunable banjo ‘A’. Nice.
You've got a way with words!
Wait!! People actually "play" the banjo? I always thought that was just the noise it made during the throes of death as they were strangling it. No?
For that matter, the same goes for the bagpipes, accordion, and melodica, just that the melodica took a really long time.
Sorry, I couldn't help myself and am just trying to good-naturedly poke some fun and I'm not serious nor mean to offend anyone. None of those are my favorite instruments, but I admit to having heard some very impressive banjo, bagpipe, and accordion playing. I haven't heard melodica playing that I enjoyed, but I expect it'll happen. Oh, add mandolin - saved single-handedly by Chris Thile whose playing I almost always enjoy. Pair him with Yo Yo Ma or Edgar Meyer and there's gonna be something good happening.
Even those legends have banjo on some of their Goat Rodeo tracks.
Could be worse. There's always the harmonica guy.
But is it Bob Dylan or Toots Thielemans playing harmonica?
I need to know.
The crux of the debate!
It's a Binary World, my friends.
Neither one. It's usually some uninvited "guest" who decides to join along and steer the train wreck.
