Harpsichords, the most annoying sound ever

I put this in tech because I know they were high tech at one time and somehow people liked the sound of them, even though I'd like to know why they were ever popular to begin with, they are always in Alfred Hitchcock or Night Gallery episodes in a creepy old mansion where someone is about to join the list of those who've never left because they're the ingredients in the beef jerky they make everyone loves, they just don't know it yet.



In case you forget what they sound like



Now something worth listening to (if you like "shred" guitarists)(I'm not the hugest fan of them but this guy is good)

1. That selection played by Elaine Comperoni is what I was prepared to post when I read your thread...

... title! The harpsichord is a delightful instrument, here's a selection by J. S. Bach in a concerto setting...

4. I guess they have there place. But like Absinthe,

it should be very rare, and in very small amounts.

5. All 'shred' guitar is awful and annoying. Harpsichords are ok I guess.
