When I was growing up...I can recall the band forms I would bring home from school every year. I remember really wanting to participate in the school's band...but I simply didn't have enough free time left to dedicate to this particular endeavor since I was already so involved in sports and theatre.

As I've gotten older...this desire has never diminished...and I've often wondered if there are others out there who have the same desire to learn a musical instrument even in their adult years.

So peeps...if you could learn a musical instrument...which one would you choose?

Me? I simply adore the violin. It's such a versatile instrument...and one that makes such an incredible impact when used the right way in a song. I especially love rock songs that incorporate violins into the arrangement. Some of these songs actually give me chills.

Of course...I don't know of anyone would really enjoying living with another adult who was learning how to play the violin. It might be kind of painful for them. Can you say Twinkle Twinkle Little Star?

Your turn...

It wouldn't have to be an adult for the experience to be painful.
I've always wanted to play the piano or the guitar. Had a friend who taught me some on guitar but I've forgotten everything I ever learned.

I already play a few instruments I took 10 years of classical piano, under protest I might add. Since then I have played the drums, guitar and Native American Flute. (I had some very good and very patient teachers along the way)
I would like to just be physically able to still play them the way I could 10 years ago. As for a new instrument I think maybe bass guitar.

When I was a kid, both me and my sister took guitar lessons for a bit before moving on to other interests growing up.

So peeps...if you could learn a musical instrument...which one would you choose?
It would be the guitar of course. lol

I would like to learn how to play the 'gee tar'- then I could form my own 'rock' band and call it: 'The 67ers' where other members have to be 67! We could change the name each year to: The 68ers, The 69ers (my favorite) etc.

On a related note, I've always wondered what life was like for those whom don't know how to play an instrument.

I picked up the guitar at 7yo and then the banjo at 9. Piano/keyboard around 16. Fiddled with the violin a little but never really learned. Now, I have cello to learn. Been working with that for a while.

Cello, is prob'ly the last of the instruments that I care to pick up.

Granny tried to teach me to play the wash board. ....... Drums .... ... Is that musical or just a racket ?

...Yes rev you are in tune! Tommy is a great musician. I have seen him play many an instrument around town with his old buddies The River Bluff Clan that include Jimmy Davis, Tony Sneed, my favorite drummer Harry Peel and others that sit in. They all get together when Tommy gets off the road every late winter. He hangs in Florida early winter unless he is touring with the greats of rock n roll.
I have been lucky enough to be able to hang with fine musicians here in Memphis. I can't find any recent videos of Tommy, but the man is a legend on the violin as well as guitar pickin. He an Eric lewis make a great team too. Eric is a fabulous picker and they both are sweet and humble.
Ok check out our new cutie pattutie Amy Le Vere. he is a bomb diggitty bomb...maybe not my fav tune, but it is memphis...Watch and check her out often!

Hey Ms. Bunny. Thanks for all the fun links.

It looks like the popular instrument of choice is the guitar...or as Som put it...the gee-tar. It was cool to discover that we have a few musicians in Pervia. I envy you musical peeps. A lot of my family members play an instrument (piano & guitar) and I think it's such a worthwhile pursuit. Oh well...one of these days I'll have to give the violin or some other instrument a try.

Your blog reminded me of one I did about a year and a half ago. I am thinking many of you may have never seen it. It involves my mortification with the clarinet. It was without a doubt the most embarrassing moment of my lfe It is pretty funny in hindsight.

You're right Murph..
It's kinda refreshing to see such a young lady dressing like a lady and playing a 'doghouse bass' so well
First time I tried the DH I was sitting in on a set with a friend's band..40 minutes later
my fingers were raw and bleeding
After that I stuck to my Precision or EB3 Gibson..that I could use a thumb pick on

Susan got some soul for a whitebread sista'

I've always liked the guitar. I had taken a guitar class when I was in 9th grade and got an A in it. My parents had even gotten me an acoustic guitar for Christmas. And of course, one of my cousin thought he "knew all" about guitars, and tightened one of the strings too tight...ripped the bridge right off the face of the guitar. My parents were actually considering paying for me to take guitar lessons, but after my guitar got broke, it was a no go.

I have recently been contemplating taking up the guitar. My hands aren't really built for it really, but they weren't great for playing piano either, and I still did that.

It just seems like it would be a relaxing hobby.

Musical fruit provides a musical instrument & you don't have to be good at it to sound like a professional.
