It’s the Player, Not the Instrument.

Years ago I stopped by the music store to buy drumsticks. The guy behind the counter asked, “What kind of sticks do you want?”

I replied, “I want the ones that will make me play like Gene Krupa.” (Showing my age)

I can only imagine how many people have purchased Gibson Les Paul Guitars thinking that, with such an axe, they will play just like Les Paul.

Fortunately, drumsticks are cheaper than a Les Paul guitar.

There’s a theme here, but I’m too lazy to develop it, so let’s call it an exercise in nuance.

Anyway, I loves me some clarinet, even if it is a carrot.

Thanks to my friend Brian, the Air Force Vet.
