SHOW NOTES

When I discuss playing a musical instrument to most “normies”, they often respond with something like “the only instrument I learned to play was that cheap plastic recorder in elementary school.” Hey! That plastic recorder is an instrument just like everyone else!

So, I decided to attempt this performance of Handel's Sonata in F Major, Op. 1. The performance is far from perfect and I am limited by the non-human harpsichord accompaniment (couldn't afford to pay a real harpsichordist for this). But I hope to demonstrate that a sub-$20 plastic instrument can do OK…in a pinch.
