A New Musical Instrument

I’ve invented a new musical instrument, a combination of bagpipes and banjo. The “Baganjo” is a wind-string instrument that should fit in well with both military processions and front porch picking sessions. It will appeal to the frugal who are musically inclined, because it combines two instruments for the price of one.

It will also appeal to merchants seeking to identify folks who are willing to buy just about anything.

It takes certain skills to play, however. You need good coordination to pluck the strings that operate the chanter pipe-holes. Also, musicians of these instruments must sometimes resort to threats of nonstop performance in order to assure payment. Therefore, you will need strong lungs to keep the bag inflated while you stay ahead of an angry mob.
