How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb?
A double bass player arrived a few minutes late for the first rehearsal of
the local choral society's annual performance of Handel's Messiah.
He picked up his instrument and bow, and turned his attention to the conductor. The conductor asked, "Would you like a moment to tune?"
The bass player replied with some surprise, "Why? Isn't it the same as last
At a rehearsal, the conductor stops and shouts to the bass section: "You are out of tune. Check it, please!"
The first bassist pulls all his strings, says, "Our tuning is correct: all
the strings are equally tight."
The first violist turns around and shouts, "You bloody idiot! It's not the
tension. The pegs have to be parallel!"
Two bass players were engaged for a run of Carmen. After a couple of weeks,
they agreed each to take an afternoon off in turn to go and watch the matinee performance from the front of house.
Joe duly took his break; back in the pit that evening, Moe asked how it was.
"Great," says Joe. "You know that bit where the music goes `BOOM Boom Boom
Boom'--well there are some guys up top singing a terrific song about a Toreador at the same time."
There was a certain bartender who was quite famous for being able to accurately guess people's IQs. One night a man walked in and talked to him
briefly and the bartender said, "Wow! You must have an IQ of about 140! You
should meet this guy over here." So they talked for a while about nuclear physics and existential philosophy and had a great time.
A second man walked in and soon the bartender has guessed about a 90 IQ for
him. So he sat him down in front of the big-screen TV and he watched football with the other guys and had a hell of a time.
Then a third man stumbled in and talked to the bartender for a while. The bartender said to himself, "Jeez! I think this guy's IQ must be about 29!"
He took him over to a man sitting at a little table back in the corner and
said, "You might enjoy talking with this guy for a while."
After the bartender left, the man at the table said, "So do you play French
bow or German bow?"
