    ambiguity?

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-Jeff was in the band together with his cousin on the guitar.
    2-Jeff was in the band together with his cousin, on the guitar.
    (who plays the guitar in each case?)

    3-Jeff was at the party wih his cousin in his clown costume.
    4-Jeff was at the party wih his cousin, in his clown costume.
    (who was in a clown costume in each case?)

    I think:

    1-Jeff only was on the guitar.
    2-Jeff and his cousin were on the guitar.


    3-Jeff only was in his clown costume.
    4-Jeff and his cousin were in clown costume.
