Now of course since I said that everyone will recall a time that this was written about. I'm on a music thing right now and I've been listening to a bunch of old stuff.

What I want to ask you now is...which instrument has that special sound in rock and roll. A sound that isn't typical of what you'd expect.

The bagpipes of AC/DC, the flute of Jethro Tull or the autoharp of Gordon Lightfoot?

The autoharp has been my favorite instrument and when I hear in "The Wreck of the EdmundFitzgerald" it gives me goosebumps.

Edmund Fitzgerald

So what instrument tickles your fancy?

Not an instrument per se, but usually considered off the beaten path of pure music.

Rick Wakeman

Trans Siberian Orchestra

Tangerine Dream


I like all you mentioned about the bagpipes, flute and autoharp. Was fascinated with Moog Synthesizers when they came out when I was a kid. Also when Frampton introduced the "Golden Throat" machine.


Sugar likes sax.......?
Saxxxxxxxy.......

Clarence Thomas's sax and Springsteen.
Stevie Wonder's harmonica in "Isn't She Lovely" for the melody.
Generally any Blues Harmonica rift.

George Harrison with the Sitar.

Within you, Without you

The first time I heard this, I thought what a beautiful Instument. Later I learned what it was and how he hired a master to teach him to play.

I cannot do any saxaphone. I do love the sound of a piano.

I'm with Sunshine! I love to hear a piano being played. I took lessons when I was a kid and regret giving it up! I love the piano in Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home.

I like the sound of a harp too.... and a dulcimer.... (spelling?) I'm sure I'll be corrected if I spelled it wrong!

The one I remember was a Sitar on the Stones song Paint it Black, and agree with RJ about the Native American flutes.

Actually I love the sound of a mournful harmonica.

The Coors (Most of their songs include some violin and a tin whistle)

Anything with a harmonica rift.

Anything unplugged. I love it when you strip away all the glitz and are left with an acoustic sound...and some amazing vocals.

If you wanna' hear great sax, check out Earl Bostic and King Curtis on youtube
Two of the greatest who played and arranged for the elite old bands and
went on on their own..

I love when they combine classical with rock, like Led Zepplin's "In the Evening" or Alanis Morresette's "Uninvited", the song "Bittersweet Symphony", ect... ...(need a little guy playing violin)
