I remember this word Honky-Tonk as one of the “sounds” my toy piano gives. There are other sounds but I remember this one distinctly maybe because of the word itself.
Anyway, that word came to mind when my daughter, the one in yellow shirt (I don’t know who the small girl is but I think she is the daughter of one of the staff there) complained that this piano in a mountain resort we love to visit has odd and out of tune sounds.
My daughter plays the piano by ear though of course it would be great if she is able to read difficult notes placed on a manhasset music stand beside the piano.
I got curious and Googled honky-tonk and saw this in YouTube. What fun!
