constant comment

If you were a type of music, what would you be? Classical, jazz, hip-hop, dub-step, folk, bluegrass, oldies, reggae, death metal…

If I were a type of music, I would have to create my own genre… but the primary instrument would be the saw. Not like a power-saw, but the old fashioned saw, played with a bow… the kind that sounds like ghosts and broken door hinges. Want a sample?


I must admit.. there were lots of REALLY pretty musical saw samples… but this one made me laugh so that’s the one you get!

QUESTION: is there a “Beautiful Name of God” associated with laughing hysterically for no good reason?

I’m going to have to make one up…

Ya Guffaw!
