The Fortunate Section Man

I omit the name of this fortunate bassist not because it is unknown to me, but because he used Il Devastatore not as a solo bow, but as an orchestra bow, sawing the mighty stick back and forth across GDAE as if it had no better use.

Such behavior does not quite merit infamy; neither should it be rewarded with immortality.
