Which musical instrument is better?
« on: 04/06/2009 12:34:09 »
A friend of mine plays the violin and I play the cello.  There has been a bit of a war of sorts going on between us for some time now about which is better.  Our weapons being whitty comments and facts about the instruments, compsers and various other things.  Now, I want some more evidence as in the ensemble I am in only consists of one cello and the rest being mostly violins.  He asks everyone for thier opinion and well, surprise suprise the violinists prefer the violin.
Thanks for your vote.

I don't wish to be awkward, but can I pick the Glockenspiel? or Xylophone?

Actually, I'm being a right little casket today.

Define "better".
A cello is better for sliding down a mountain on (in some Bond film I think- but it may have beeen a double bass). A violin is better because you don't need to book a second seat for it on the bus.

I mean by your personal belief of which is better.  Overall, taking everything you know of it into account.  Everything.

This is very amusing.

I should explain...
My best friend plays the faggot/faggoti, or, more commonly known as a bassoon.  We too have a bit of a war about which is better, cello or bassoon.
He too refuses to call it a bassoon.  When someone asks him "What instrument is that?" he replies with, "a faggot."
He then  gets an odd look I end up having to explain.  It's quite an amusing game. 
You don't know him do you? :D ;) ;D

Define "better".

•something superior in quality or condition or effect; "a change for the better"
•(comparative of `good') superior to another (of the same class or set or kind) in excellence or quality or desirability or suitability; more ...

Sorry, just being a smart arse. Couldn't resist. :D

Oh yeah!!! Well in that case, I have to take my tortoises to the vet in a few hours for a checkup. My neighbour asked if I wanted to borrow his motor bike for the purpose. I graciously declined and said "I'll avocado."

BTW, since you have voted for the cello, and you are biased, it really is only 2 - 1. Until I vote for the violin....... Hehehe!
