His bow gently stroked the stings of his violin.  It would have been a beautiful sound…if he weren’t always just a bit off on intonation.  He had good technique and great expression, but the pitch was always just a little off.  It was less apparent when he was just playing solo, but it became terribly obvious when he performed with even one other instrument.

The thing was Jimmy was still lauded as being very good.  Brad couldn’t understand why everyone always seemed so impressed with him.  Sure, he played multiple instruments, but he was only fair to mediocre and any one of them.  If Jimmy were really good at one of them, then Brad could give him some kudos, but as it was, it seemed like he was just a bit of a show-off.
