The double bass

A double bass goes to a psychiatrist.
Double bass: Doctor, someone told me I sound depressed.
Doctor: Let's hear it!
Double bass: G - D - ,A - 'E.
The psychiatrist's face darkens.
Doctor: I refer you to a good friend of mine. He will operate on you.
Double bass: And what will become of me then?
Doctor: A cello, a viola and a violin.

Scherzo, how do I put the joke into the music?



This is my first phrase in my scherzo. I haven't uploaded it yet because I just have that one phrase. The eighth notes in the right hand and the focus on Bb at first, making it sound like it is in Bb major instead of F major, despite the E naturals makes the right hand, I think sound like a true scherzo, at least until the cadence lands on F. The left hand however, I think diminishes the scherzo quality because it is a simple quarter note bass line until the cadence is reached and there are 2 dotted quarters.

I am writing this scherzo as an isolated scherzo as you can probably tell from the title in the image being Scherzo in F. So how do I put the joke into the music? If you can't tell already, I kind of going with a Haydynesque approach to this scherzo, in other words, really making it sound like a joke instead of one of Beethoven's more serious sounding scherzos.

Bipolar

 This is a harmony I made to try to express the sadness and euforia of the bipolar complex. I lived througth this and while tring to find a harmony to a minor song it came out like this. I'm not a good musician but this is what I can do so far! I know music is supposed to express beautifull things, but the ocilations in humor are also part of human nature.I basicaly played arround with major and minor. If you know other tecniques please tell me!
