Heh, would love to.

Reminds me of the old drummer joke.

A young drummer studies for many years with an Indian Tabla master. After some time, the master has to return home to India. The young drummer becomes a famous jazz drummer and tours the world. After many years of touring, he finally gets a gig in his old Tabla master's home town! He writes the master to invite him to the gig, and before the show he peeks out and indeed the tabla master has showed up! The drummer is very nervous playing for his old teacher, but the show otherwise goes well and the master just smiles serenely through the whole set.

Backstage after the show, the drummer is happy to greet his old teacher, who is very glad to see him and very proud too. The drummer then nervously asks the tabla master how his playing sounded, and if there is there anything he should work on. And the master replies brightly: "Oh, your playing was very delightful! But you were a little sluggish on the 11 and the 37".

Um, rim shot here. It is, however, much funnier if you read the punchline with a subcontinental accent.
