Fun, Fun Musical Pun

C, E-flat and G go into a bar. The bartender says, "Sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough. D comes in and heads for the bathroom saying, "Excuse me.
I'll just be a second." Then A comes in, but the bartender is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.

Indian & African Percussionists of Children's Lament

I have been missing my days in high school when I played percussion in the band. I wish I had the room and the money to buy a marimba to play whenever the mood stuck me. Until then I will live vicariously through these neat videos. I came across this video searching for other videos of children playing percussion instruments for another post you should see within the week about sharing music with your children at home. Enjoy!
