While watching the Jimmy Fallon show last night I noticed the tuba player in the band (Roots). The guy was grooving pretty good for someone with a 40 pound instrument wrapped around him. I wonder which muscles get a work out when you carry a tuba... Abs? Hips? Shoulders? Some mysterious set of muscles you only know about after carrying a tuba? (Kind of like the muscles we all discover in January when we briefly exercise for our fleeting new year's resolutions).
I think the Tuba is the new sexy instrument....
This got me thinking of sexy musical instruments of past decades:
1930's: Clarinet ( Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller)
1940's: Trombone, Trumpet (Glenn Miller and Tommy Dorsey)
1950's: Voice ( Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley
1960's: Tambourine ( Jim Morrison)
1970's: Guitar (Peter Frampton)
1980's: Who are we kidding? This is the decade of Flock of Seagulls...so I guess the answer would be synthesizer. It's an asexual musical instrument like Flock of Seagulls
1990's: Saxophone ( Branford Marsalis)
2000's: not sure..bagpipes for all the fallen soldiers of war?
2010's: Tuba (Damon Bryson)
