Another one of the few comedic actors you'll see in film who looks like he actually knows how to play the violin - because he does!  Many people don't know that before joining "The Three Stooges" - Larry Fine was a Classical Violinist destined for study at a European Conservatory, but WWI intervened.  

 

"Fiddlers Three" - except Larry is the only one playing!

Here's the skit where a 'Stradivarius' is the main character!

Turkey | Thanksgiving drawings, Turkey cartoon, Thanksgiving cartoon

What should you do after your big Thanksgiving Day Feast? 

Enjoy a little R&B, of course! 

Fiddlers usually fiddle so everyone else can enjoy dancing, but why not 'shake a leg' a little on Thanksgiving, too?

 

Turkey Leg Line Dance to "Turkey Leg" by Ricky Blues. 

 

If that's not your style - there's always the "Turkey Trot" to learn (not yer Great Grandma's dance).

...the only 'Turkey Leg' I'll be shakin' is the one coming out of the oven.

Close enough to December - time for Christmas humor! 

 

Oh Christmas Tree! 🤣

...pure FUN, some of these cracked me up!

They left some of the best for here - you can download/stream (for free) ALL 17 tracks at bandcamp:  https://bongolong.bandcamp.com/ - loved "Jungle Jingle, Jupiter Jingle"! 

 

Saw this was on sale somewhere - original price was $500 US dollars!!!

🤔... was thinking I could probably get Kevin to dress up like Santa, hold my violin & wiggle - he'd look MUCH better and I'd just have to promise not to 'nag' him for the evening!

I always try to post music-related humor here, but... sometimes I just can't help myself!

I was talking to Kevin this morning about how pianos, unlike Violins, are tuned to 12 tone Equal Temperament - and can't produce quarter tones or microtones. 

So this, along with my recent learning to play EV, prompted him to show me this video. (lol) 

...figured many folks here play or are acquainted with the piano & might get a kick out of this. 

 

 

AND IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH... 

 

 

🤔... violins - nope, too close to the face! 

 

Almost everyone is familiar with Siri or Alexa... I've had many weird responses from Alexa when I've asked it to play some of the tunes I like to play along with. 😳

 

 

Hope y'all have a GREAT VALENTINE'S DAY!

Yep, I was was looking over extended violin techniques today. 

...for some reason this video didn't help my playing technique much. (lol)
