I used to play the violin, but there were too many strings attached.
I had a position as a flutist, but I blew it.
I tried my hand at the battery, but it was no hit.
I found a place as an organist, but didn't know how to pull all the stops...

I tried being a hair stylist, but got all tangled up. So I tried to simplify and be a barber, but I couldn't cut it. I almost lost my barber's license due to incompetence -- that was a close shave!

I trained to be a caligrapher, but I couldn't mind my Ps and Qs.

Then you're like J.S. Bach. He had eighteen progeny because he couldn't find his organ stops.

No, he got no further than a cover note: he could never get them to underwrite it once they knew the score.
