Nice one!

What do they say about violinists who don't practice scales?

The spirit was willing ... but the Flesch was weak.

You've probably been drinking while listening to Handel's Firewater Music.
Next you'll start singing, "O Solo Meow."

Not a joke!

Write solo over a whole note.

I converted to viola JUST FOR THE JOKES.

Would you find this helpful?

As regards your last comment, if Ryan does what you suggest, how is he going to dry up people's tears when they've been cutting up onions?
