My husband plays piano and accordian. To see him in an accordian duet with a three year old, and find out why he had to take accordian lessons as a boy, and what instrument was called "The Devil's Box Of Whistles" by some churches, click on my previous post here. We are interested in lots of instruments, including bizarre ones. Here are the answers to yesterday's picture. They were, in order, a Slide Whistle, a Jaw Harp, and a Nose Flute. Pictures show him playing each. The Jaw Harp used to be called Jew's Harp, and has been called by hundreds of other names. It makes a twanging noise. We just bought it a few days ago and Phil is still unable to play it, even after watching teaching videos. I'm convinced he'll master it eventually, because he mastered the Nose Flute. This gizmo goes over the nose. Then you close up the back of your mouth, and play by breathing the notes through your nose. You are actually playing with your nose!! Obviously, this instrument can't be shared, or played with a cold. He's extremly accomplished on it, and can play anything, including hymns. In fact, he actually played "Here Comes The Bride" with his nose at a wedding reception! Do you doubt, gentle reader? Then look at the picture of him playing the nose flute in the church fellowship hall. The guests backed away and made a large circle around him. They didn't know what to expect. They weren't dissapointed. The marriage broke up shortly thereafter. God loves us to praise Him with instruments, and I somehow think He might not object to this one.
"Praise The Lord with the harp; make music to Him on the ten stringed lyre. Sing to Him a new song. Play skillfully, and shout for joy." Psalm 33:3
