One of comedian JACK BENNY's "hooks" was of being a terrible violinist, although it was said he played fairly well, but not great.

He and fellow comedian FRED ALLEN often exchanged barbs at one another. A favorite of mine from Allen:

"Benny plays the fiddle like the STRINGS were still in the CAT!" grin

How can you tell if a guitarist had a lot of formal training?

YOU don't HAVE to. HE'LL tell you. At EVERY opportunity!

Ok.
Another classical joke.
Viola players are generally treated as the bottom rung of the orchestral world.

A symphony temporarily lost their conductor b/c of illness.
One of the violists was drafted to fill in since he was deemed unneeded.
Surprisingly things went smashingly during his tenure filling in & when the conductor came back & the violist, aglow w/ his achievement, returned to his position expecting accolades the player in the next seat looked up & asked, "Well, where've you been ?!"

As for me & my brethren here...


But Wait !
There's MORE !!

A sunburst Stratocaster walks into a bar, orders a beer and takes a stool next to a hot-looking Les Paul Goldtop, who's sipping an umbrella drink. The Strat leers at the Les Paul for several minutes and then says, "Hey, that's some set of humbuckers you got on you, darlin'."

Unimpressed, the Goldtop says, "What kind of cheap pickup line is that?"

Well, all my guitars have been expertly tuned by professionals before they leave the factory, so I figure I shouldn't be mucking around with any of that stuff.

How can you tell when a drummer is knocking on the door? The timing of the knocking varies.

How can you tell when a bassist is knocking at the door? The rest of the band knocked a beat earlier.

How can you tell when a singer is knocking at the door? They aren't sure when to come in.

How can you tell when a guitarist is knocking on the door? The load in was thirty minutes ago.

Why do many musicians never go out for breakfast?

Because most diners stop serving breakfast before noon.
