It’s good, but it’s not our top answer

That Mark Tree thing is all over Disintegration, think it gets a free pass.

If we’re going by the ratio of how many times it’s been used terribly vs how many times its been used well, then definitely saxophone.

Still the ukulele.

Actually, yeah possibly.

Reckon ukulele are unfairly maligned as when it’s played well people don’t realise it is a ukulele

Damning stuff.

I like bagpipes and think they are underused

in Titus Andronicus they are good

remember listening to some free jazz thing with just bagpipes and saxophone that was good and I can’t remember what it was

Do people who don’t like ukulele also dislike the guitar above the fifth fret, just seems nonsensical to me, sure it is an instrument that lends itself to tweeness but is capable of a lot more, probably one of the better instruments

They are good in that Battle of Hampton Roads song, but as a solo instrument it’s too harsh and piercing. It’s probably not a very versatile instrument either

Literally the moment a tab says -6- I throw my guitar on the floor.
