    Default Favourite Instrument(s)

    Well. I couldn't find a thread like this anywhere else, so I though I might make it.

    Just say what instrument is. Simple as that.

    I myself like the guitar, drumkit and double bass.

    I play guitar, drums, Bass and a little bit of the piano (not much)

    I think that the best instrument in existance is the BIG church pipe organ (think phantom of the opera)

    I played the guitar for a couple of years in school, but 20 minutes a week with a scuky teacher didn't do much for me. After 4 years, I knew as much as I did after one year. So I quit. That was about two years ago, so know I can hardly play the guitar at all.

    But it is still my favourite instrument
    Yay!

    ^ I absolutely love bagpipe, if it's played WELL. There is nothing more painful than listening to someone caterwaul out amazing grace for the fiftieth time playing a bagpipe poorly.

    I personally like playing the piano most. It is the most logical and versatile instrument. For travelable instruments, though I like the Mandolin. ALso incredibly versatile, but fits on your back.

    Depends on my mood, I must say.

    If I'm feeling particularly chilled out then its gonna be something like piano, acoustic guitar, or cello, without piano probably topping that list.

    If I'm feeling quite the opposite then there's a high chance that what I'm really gonna want to listen to is some full band rock music, with the guitar being the main focus. Hence my love of bands like The Living End for their fantastic lightning quick guitar work.

    If I'm feeling somewhere inbetween then I find that what I often end up listening to is more electronic-based. You know, that music that doesn't actually have any real instruments in it at all? :P



    As for playing, well, I've only ever got even vaguely competent with one instrument - bass - so I guess that would have to be it.

    My favorite has to be the bagpipe as well, proof being that it's the only instrument that I've taken the time for lessons and stick to them.

    I used to play clarinet, and like it. Though, my favorite instrument would have to be the piano, is it is, as said, versatile and easy to play, though can sound good too. ;D

    My favorite instrument would have to be the flute (more on wooden), though I don't play it that good. Following that would be piano and harp.

    I always that the idea of a baby grand piano was one of the great oxymorons of the music world. :P

    Bagpipes seem popular, and I can kinda see why. But I gotta tell ya, pretty much every piece on them is starting to sound the same to me. Where I live barely a week goes by without some bastard whipping out the bagpipes and making a massive noise. Admittedly I've never heard an 'expert' play them, and truth be told I probably wouldn't notice if I did. :P At the risk of sounding like a complete Philastine they remind me of the harmonica, in the sense that someone picks them up and plays, and the noise that comes out is not a particular tune but just Bagpipe MusicTM. Still though, I will concede that for certain moments it can fit perfectly.

    I guess its just one of those instruments that require a certain degree of education in to be able to properly appreciate. Like the also-mentioned harp it all kind of blends together if you don't really know what you're listening for, to me at least. I mean, everyone is familiar with all manner of guitar pieces and piano pieces, but I dare say most people couldn't really think of many that predominately feature a harp or bagpipes. Interestingly enough, though, one of the tracks that is taking up a lot of my listening time right now features as harp as the main instrument, and I'm very much enjoying it. Definitely in my Top 5 Instruments To Fall Asleep Listening To. :D

    @^^ *Have you tried wire-strung harp? *It's a different sound, less soft with a bell-like ring (sustain). *

    You can hear some clips at:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...nce&n=5174

    Scroll down to the list. *The amazon Music Sampler worked best for me (there was nothing to install and it loaded faster). *The clip quality isn't great but it shows the difference from nylon strung harps.

    Here's where my "expertise" comes in. *Most bagpipe music sounds similar because there are only a few catagories (and it's kind of hard to variate with only 9 notes). *Anyways the catagories are airs (such as Amazing Grace), Marches ( 2\4, 4\4, 6\8, etc. *Most popular is Scotland the Brave.), and Reels, jigs, and hornpipes (which all sound similar to someone who doesn't make it their life).


    This has two tunes, but they sound very similar. *I belive their both hornpipes, but I may be wrong.


    Scotland the Brave *While not bagpipes, it is rather amusing

    A competiton band *These guys are really good. *Not sure what set they're playing. *Music starts 1 min in. *Wish the drums were louder, but now I'm just starting to ramble.

    EDIT: Gah, stupid tags.

    Bunches of stringed and bowed instruments playing at once to a celtic tune. Rawrr. Add an electric guitar too...odd but awesome combo.

    I play the trumpet. I have no idea why people wouldn't like an instrument that can take on serious, intimidating sounds and still be portable and found in many different styles of music... for the record I don't count piano as portable ;) if it weighs less than 200lbs its not a real piano...

    For listening to, probably Piano.
    But you can't beat a guitar for just rocking up and starting a party.

    For playing, I dabble a bit here and there.
