A solo is a great place to show the world how lousy you are at playing your instrument. While a good solo can make you a rock god, a shitty one lets everyone know that you are a fat-fingered dullard who probably has trouble tying his shoes. Now, a tweet has gone viral featuring what is being heralded as the worst solo, by any instrument, ever.
The solo, tweeted by indie rock artist Gal Gracen and highlighted by Geekologie, is a saxophone solo by the Five Satins (best known for their track In The Still Of The Night) on their song The Jones Girl. As you'll hear, the solo starts off like any other doo-wop or swing sax solo...and then it never changes. Instead, it just kind of honks along, sounding like a drugged goose. There's even a pause at the end, as though the remaining band members looked at each other and mouthed, That's it? Are we waiting for something else?
