Thread: Take On Music Theory

  1. #1

    Default Take On Music Theory

    Early one day, a C, an E-flat, and a G go into a bar. The bartender says: "Sorry, but we
    don't serve minors." So the E-flat leaves, and the C and the G have an open
    fifth between them.

    After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and the G is out flat. An F
    comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.
    Later, a D comes into the bar and heads straight for the bathroom saying, "Excuse
    me. I'll just be a second." Then an A comes into the bar, but the bartender
    is not convinced that this relative of C is not a minor.

    Then the bartender notices a B-flat hiding at the end of the bar and
    exclaims, "Get out now. You're the seventh minor I've found in this bar

    The E-flat, not easily deflated, comes back to the bar the next night in a
    3-piece suit with nicely shined shoes. The bartender (who used to have a
    nice corporate job until his company downsized) says, "You're looking sharp
    tonight, come on in! This could be a major development." This proves to be
    the case, as the E-flat takes off the suit, and everything else, and stands
    there au natural.

    Eventually, the C sobers up, and realizes in horror that he's under a rest.
    The C is brought to trial, is found guilty of contributing to the
    diminution of a minor, and is sentenced to 10 years of DS without Coda at
    an upscale correctional facility.

    On appeal, however, the C is found innocent of any wrongdoing, even
    accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless.

    The bartender decides, however, that since he's only had tenor so patrons,
    with the soprano out in the bathroom, and everything has become alto much
    treble, he needs a rest, and closes the bar.

    Thanks SO much for that -- I'm an amateur
    musician and LOVED it! I've gotta share this
    with some musicians I know.

    P.S.: My non-musician railfan son also loved it!

    Yeah, not easy to follow unless you're a musician yourself, but nice story though
