Saw (no pun intended) this video posted by Mark O'Connor on Facebook. I thought folks here would get a kick out of it. Mark posted it as a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the Suzuki method. He's not a fan. Not looking to stir up a debate on that topic here. Just thought the video was funny.

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Hmmm.  That might come in handy for playing songs like Drowsey Maggie.

You're right, John @Ferret . It does sound like tremolo. Hmmm. Might be tough to attach a pick to a SawzAll. Maybe a Dremel tool would work better with a mando. :)

That is hilarious!  Definitely a first, don't think I've ever seen anyone play violin with a saw before lol.  Funny part is that it actually sounded pretty decent ha ha.  Thanks for sharing Diane.

Wonder how well the Saw Bow would work, playing Flight Of The Bumblebee.
