Ha! A Zither – I haven’t seen that word for years. zither, zither, zither, zither, zither, zither — fun word to write/say. 😀

Y family friends in Tennessee knew how to play a zither with a wash board band. Country blue grass 🙂
That’s pretty cool!
It is and who would think of using an old zither anyway?
It slices, it dices, it plays a tune. 🙂

I wonder what he would take for the hat?
That is a cool hat, isn’t it?
The hat is a part of his identity…
Have you seen Carol Reed’s 1949 The Third Man with Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten? With Zither music performed by Anton Karas. (I think I have the correct spelling.) It’s a fabulous film! ~Theadora
No, I haven’t seen it. I guess I need to check out some zither music!
During the 1950s, the The Third Man theme song from the film was a popular tune. I’ve seen the movie about ten times, maybe more. ~T.
Here’s a link to the theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8jN1treRKQ
Amazing to see him play it. What an odd vibrating sound. It sounds it would fit in scene with a Mexican man in a sombrero walking a donkey, or perhaps a cowboy entering a saloon. I’d never heard this before. Thanks!
Watch the The Third Man! It really works with the film. Location: Vienna. Trevor Howard and Alida Valli are also pretty darn amazing. ~T.
Seems a fair trade.
The zither does look rather well ridden, Kerbey, though I think its riddance is worth more than a scarf. Perhaps it was perpeptually out of tune. Or it was an extremely cold winter in Berlin. I agree with you, his trademark hat had to stay.
My sisther had a zither and she shold shea shells down by the shea shore.
You don’t say? My brother Peter picks a peck of pickled peppers!
I thought it was a broken harpsichord!
