What's the definition if perfect pitch?
The sound of a clarinet splintering as it pierces an accordian and a banjo!

Did you hear about the banjo that was so far out of tune that some of the other banjo players started to notice?

Why do Scottish pipers march when they play?
2 answers 1: to get away from the noise. and 2: A moving target is harder to hit.

What do you get when you throw a banjo, an accordion, and a hammered dulcimer of the Empire State Building at the same time?
Thunderous applause!

How do you get a fiddler to slow down?
Put sheet music in front of him.

How do you tell banjo tunes apart?
The names are different!

What do you get when you put 6 banjo players in a circle?
A full set of teeth.

A fiddler walks into a booth at a Highlands Games competition and tells a large, kilted gentleman "Wait til you hear this great new bagpipe joke that I heard this morning!" The man replies "Before you tell it you should that I play the Bagpipes, That guy over there throwing the hammer plays the pipes, and my brother pulling that cart over there, plays as well. Now do you still want to tell your joke?" "Not if I'm gonna have to explain it three times!"

Here's one to play next time a hammer dulcimer player comes to your session. When he or she gets a note for one string and goes off in a corner to get in tune with every one else, everyone tune up or down just a hair.

I shouldn't pick on hammer dulcimers though. They sound absolutely beautiful.............if you turn them over and clog on them!

I'm sorry I don't have any bodhran jokes to offer. MOst of the ones I've heard have already been taken either as bodhran jokes or as other instrument jokes.

Cheers,
Rich
