I did consider learning bagpipes, but that instrument (of which have many variations) does have a serious annoyance factor. Especially when deliberately played out of tune. Hahahaa - can you imagine the row? I'm laughing so much there's tears in my eyes.  :lol:

I would love to learn to play the bagpipes myself :fox-:): . All the different variations are one of the things I love about them as an instrument in general..and yeah, out of tune bagpipes do kind of sound like an animal in pain to put it bluntly xP.

Lol, or a pair of cats scrapping outside over a piece of crud. Like now.  :lol:


I'm quite attracted to learning to play Northumbrian smallpipes.
Sorry about the huge image


I must say I very much like your taste in pipes! :lol-fox: the Northumbrian small pipes do have a wonderful sound to them, although my personal favourite pipes..its a tough call between the Uilleann Pipes or the Welsh bagpipes.

Well, the best thing we can do is listen to advise from someone in the trade, and then make our choice accordingly. Wikipedia gives good info on all pipes, so we can get informed that way. Pipes' prices vary and they are not cheap. Maybe you could ask your parents to give you a combined Christmas and Birthday present? Its just a thought.  ;)

I was considering getting a pipe chanter, as they are substantially cheaper and let you get a feel of the instrument before you play them, quieter too than the full thing, and that does sound like quite a good idea actually :fox-:):.

I'm really already learning to play all the instruments I want to ... guitar, banjo, mandolin. It'd be nice to know more on the piano though.

And if you want to get fancy, I'd love to learn to play the lute! I just love how it sounds. <3

So far, I know the piano, guitar, and ukulele; I adore string instruments. I have so many I want to learn.
CELLO. I love cellos. Our dad used to play it, and I love the sounds it makes!
Personally, I'm interested in learning either the banjo or bass guitar. The banjo has a perfect sound for acoustic music, and I think the bass will feel familiar, especially with our existing knowledge of guitars.

I highly encourage you to learn banjo, it's super fun to play!! You've just got to make sure you're alright with finger picking (and FAST), especially if you want to learn the 3-finger picking style. :fox-:P:

I agree! I currently have three instruments on the list that I'd like to learn: banjo, guitar, and harmonica.  :fox-:P:

If you do end up playing all of those, you could probably record yourself playing each one separately, then put them together and become a one man country/bluegrass/whatever band!

Totally drums. Beatboxing (if that counts). Anything percussion/rhythm related!

I want to learn the violin. It's so beautiful. I think it'd be perfect for someone to take me on a date out under the stars, and I would just lean against him and play for him as much as he wanted.

I'm going to teach myself violin because I have one (had it for ten years actually, but we totally forgot about and I only just re-stringed and tuned it recently). Also want to improve my keyboard competence.

I'd like to learn to play the guitar. Yesterday, my parents got me a Dean electric acoustic guitar for my birthday this year. I know absolutely nothing about how to play a guitar, so it's quite the learning experience for me. It's something I've been wanting to learn for a while now. An entire side of my family is really good at music actually. I had one uncle who used to play the bass and another who played the mandoline. Guitar is something that looks easy, but I can say even after the little time I've spent with it, it's very difficult. I just have to keep learning how to play it, and eventually, I'll figure out how to actually play a song.
