One day I want to take guitar lessons or just self teach myself how to play the guitar. There's just a beauty to a someone writing a beautiful song and then creating the melody with their guitar. I want to have talent like that.

I can kind of play the ukelele, but I wouldn't consider myself a professional when it comes to making music.

Me, too. You and I should start a band. LOL.

I absolutely love the recorder but never can find the time to play it like I did in elementary school. I also have a small collection of autoharps. I recently also got a mountain dulcimer. I find myself liking the dulcimer the most, even if this is making my autoharps jealous.

Your voice box is a fabulous instrument. There's a style of singing called shape note singing that I'll be studying starting tomorrow. I think they call it the holy instrument or something like that.

I play classical kazoo. STOP LAUGHING I'M SERIOUS! You haven't lived till you've heard Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata played by a master kazoozist.
