    I actually like all three. I took a bagpipe class my first semester of college, I have a banjo hanging on the wall (need to learn how to play it sometime), and this vid almost made me buy an accordion, until I saw how much they cost.

    I believe myself to be always operating within reasonable boundaries of sanity.

    Another suggestion on a loftier view, brought to one of my jams this Christmas by a senior partner in a
    rather major international law firm. We enjoyed the playing and singing of it.

    While some may decry the spreading infestation of a painful pestilence (banjo, pipes,accordions), some
    of us find much joy in the beauty of these maligned members of the planetary sound mix.

    On the subject of banjos, check out today's Google Doodle which honors Earl Scruggs.
