       Playing on a Leaf
      sounds like a great achievement and should be in the World Records of Guiness
      and maybe Ripley's Believe It or Not.

      I've seen this done in Slovakia.... it was amazing.... the musician
      said it took him 2 months to learn to do it. He had been playing the
      violin earlier, and the melody he played on the leaf was just as
      intricate.
