nice strings

Here's a bit of music to help finish off your hopefully lovely summer weekend! I'm a bit late to the party on this one, considering this video is three years old and has a multimillion viewer count, but I just heard it and wanted to share. I love great violin (and all the other string instruments for that matter), and especially love it when it's used unconventionally.

This reminds me of a recent visit to the farmer's market. There was a jazz band playing there, and as a toddler passed by he saw the upright bass, and he looked at his mother wide-eyed and said, 'Whoa, that is one biiiig violin!' It made me smile. His comment and wonder at the huge 'violin' totally made my day.
