Nasrudin Plays Guitar
Nasrudin was at the town square one day, and a group of people asked him if he knew how to play the guitar.
Nasrudin didn’t know how, but he replied, “Yes, I do. I am a masterful guitar player—in fact, I am one of the best in the world!“
The people, not expecting him to make such a boast, immediately gave him a guitar and asked him to play it.
took the guitar and started playing only one string, and continued to
play only on that one string. After a minute of this, someone finally
interrupted him and asked, “Mulla! Guitar players move their fingers and
play a variety of strings. Why are you only playing one of them?”
Nasrudin replied, “those players keep on changing strings because they
are searching for a specific one. I found it on my first try—so why
should I switch to another one?
