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]

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!

Wow!!! The triangle! I am in awe of your musical talent. Doubtless you will be releasing a #1 hit single in the near future. None of that old double 'A' side rubbish for you though: You'll have a triple 'A' side with that awesome instrument.

Here's your backing group.

On the guitar, Doc Beaver
On keyboards, Some drunk from the boozer down the road
On the spoons, C4M
On the squeezebox, JimBob
On the drums, yours truly
On Violin, Shadow's mate
Rhythm guitar, MILF
The TNS Brass ensemble
And the TNS Massed choir

I sometimes think a single violin sounds a bit screechy ..not all the time..just some of the time....but multiple strings ?..fantastic !!
