What Do You Think About...The MUSICAL SAW???
It has been FAR too long since I added something new to the show. Aside from the written comedy, I haven't added much to the show in a long time. Part of that has to do with simple complacency. Mostly it has to do with the fact that living in apartments did not allow me a lot of space to work out new routines nor practice.
Now that I'm in the house with lots of room I can jump-start my stale old ass and work on some of the things I've always wanted o do.
Tops on that list is learning how to play the musical saw. I'm a sucker for oddball vaudeville acts. If they are more of the portable variety then all the better for me.
I've always wanted to work this out as I not only have some performance ideas that could make me seem somewhat "revolutionary" in the musical saw world, but I know I've got a wide assortment of comedy routines I can bring to the mix.
The only problem is hat I presently don't know how to play one. Searching online I have found a few different options for where to purchase a well-made saw, but I've been assured that learning the basics take a relatively minuscule amount of time. I'm sure that getting up to performance level will take a lot of practice, but I'm very eager and willing to get there.
So...what do YOU think? I know I haven't shared a lot of exactly what I'd be doing in my routines (when I learn how to play), but that's to prevent anyone from stealing my ideas. Trust me, there's gonna be some funny and cool stuff down the road.
