10 Pictures Only Musicians Will Find Funny

Posted by John Tyler Kent on Dec 15, 2015 10:00 AM

Whether you're a DJ, a concert pianist, or a drummer for a rock band, we can all agree that advancing and improving yourself as a musician is a lot of hard work, dedication, and practice. Sometimes it's very easy to get caught up in the discipline of it, and we forget that music is supposed to be fun. If this applies to you, take a minute, check out these pictures, and have a laugh with us!

1. When you know it's the sound guy's first and last day on the job...

We all have those gigs where we're stuck working with one of these guys, and all we can really do is push through it, have fun, and have a good laugh about it later.


2. Yes, this score is actually available for purchase

If you aren't familiar with this piece of music, I highly suggest listening to a preview clip before you purchase this one on iTunes.


3. "Also suitable for English horn and banjo"

Quite possibly the best-selling oboe accessory to date. I believe that I also know some french horn players who would benefit from one of these.


4. XXXL Pro Deluxe Keyboard Stand Plus

These things just keep getting fancier and fancier...


5. Fun fact: the founding fathers were huge Mariah Carey fans

Everyone knows that the more notes and runs you hit, the more patriotic you are.


6. I swear, this is entirely necessary

Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick should count himself lucky to have found a very patient guitar tech who's willing to deal with this monster.


7. Rest rest rest rest REST REST REST REST!!!!!!!!!

Quiet, but with feeling!


8. Just say "no" to yucky jazz

I suppose this could kind of be seen as Toronto's version of the "No Stairway" rule.


9. Sometimes you just need to Skrelax

This picture brings up the classic debate of "working hard vs. hardly working."


10. May the Force be with you

It's unclear whether composer John Williams intended for these notations to be humorous, but I would like to think he knew exactly what he was saying here.
