It’s late at night, and Lum and Abner skulk around inside the church. What are they up to? Lum has some directions from Mr Taggert, his tutor for learning how to tune pianos. Abner is confused at the letters of the notes in the musical scale. Just wait until Lum gets to the part of using a tuning fork. How do you get your vittles on that little thing? You’d have to pitch pretty quick, or they’d all fall off.
Forget checking the pitch of middle C, where ever that is, Lum can’t wait to use his little wrench to start adjusting the piano strings.
Those directions are a bit much for Lum, so he uses his own method. One little bittey broken piano string won’t matter, will it? Maybe not, but what about all those other parts that keep breaking off?
