If you could be a instrument what would you be?

Pick your favorite instrument. 

Also, have you ever played an instrument?

Just have fun, no politics and religion and please be nice.

Thank you.

Mine would be a pipe organ.

I use to play the piano when I was younger.

An easy one. Saxophone.

If you dont have time to listen to the whole thing, try from the 1:00 to 4:00 minute mark when the sax play is at its peak. 

start at 3:15 mark for one of the best sax parts in pop/rock music

I play the viola.  Yes I know that it's the black sheep that the rest of the string section doesn't like to talk about but I love the mellow tone.

I went and listened to a viola on YouTube. It has a lower pitch then a violin, I like it. It’s between the violin and cello.  Nice sounding instrument.

Have played the bass since my first band and played my own 8th grade graduation dance.

Still playing it over 50 years later. 

There are so many great 4 string instruments out there.

Was one of those weird people - could play almost any instrument.  When in Jr. High, High School and Jr. College, the band instructors would move me from section to section when someone was missing.  My favorite was the Bassoon - sweet, mellow baritone sound - even the vibrations from the instrument, while playing, were awesome.

Now, when I wanna mellow out, I'll get the Ol' Fender acoustic, go to the front room, and start strumming the old folk songs.

I could envy him being actively playing music "to soothe." One of the things I have often wondered about is how professional performers "mellow out" in their private times. I imagine them singing room to room or in the shower making the most "delicious" of songs from their own hands and throats!

Kalimba Solo

I first heard this instrument used on "Kalimba Story" by Earth, Wind, and Fire. I could be this exotic sounding. I played alto clarinet and trombone back in the day too. Bestie loved alto sax! So he and I musically 'worked out' together a lot!

In HS I was a percussionist in the band and a rock band, which was usually limited to tambourine or triangles

( which my wife takes full advantage of mocking me for, "ting" is one of her favorites )

But my favorite was the Irish bodhran drum.

The drum was used to winnow wheat, carry peat or other items 

later to keep cadence for marching warriors and the predecessors to Irish war drums.

We participated /joined Ancestry .com

My Father's Father insisted we were from West Cork

and so does Ancestry with a spread around the UK and Normandy.

Over the years they started at 75% at one point reaching 99.5% Irish.

Then they changed the way they reported and it was a range between 80 & 90% Irish,

Now they are back to 98% Irish, from Cork.

'Although I had and have played a number of different instruments, I think the one that I enjoyed the most was my hand-made Appalachian dulcimer.  Its sound was soft and sweet, and very relaxing.  You can see how relaxed I am.

800

Here you can watch and listen to an Appalachian dulcimer being played -

The dulcimer you heard was a standard 3-stringed one.  Mine is unusual in that the strings are doubled, which causes a fuller but softer sound, similar to the vintage 12-string Gibson B-45 12 that you see beside my bench.  Kavika will know who the artist was that did the framed prints on my walls. 

However, If I had to BE an instrument, then let it be an electronic synthesizer, then I could make virtually any sound and imitate any instrument alone or in any combination - even the sound of a whole orchestra.

What notes run down the fretted strings, I notice that frets are missing so am I correct to assume each fretted note is a note in a scale instead of running through every note like a guitar.

16.2.1  Buzz of the Orient  replied to  zuksam @16.2    2 weeks ago

I never knew, but I got this from a Microsoft Bing search...

The frets of the Appalachian dulcimer are typically arranged in a diatonic scale. Traditionally, the Appalachian dulcimer was usually tuned to DAA, or notes with this 1 5 5 relationship. The key note is on the bass string and the middle string is an interval of a perfect fifth above it.

If anyone ever wants to totally assault all of your musical senses, try Ravel's Bolero. but see the vid with Gustave Dudamel.  Almost every kind of instrument is used with this arrangement.  Also Dudamel is a blast to watch with his passion and troll doll hair.

Well, this was tough. I play both violin, guitar and bass guitar... but I think I would be a bass guitar.

A harp is also a beautiful sounding instrument.

Anything that allows one to say…’blow me’…

…with ‘strumming me softly’ a close second…

Drums.

I was in a garage band as a teenager. Wanted to play electric guitar; but they already had 3 of those and one base player. Couldn't afford my own instrument- so I was stuck on the drums. I let my younger brother play the piano/keyboard- we both took lessons- but I wasn't going to lug it around. We weren't the greatest; but we were definitely the loudest- even without amps it seems. Made more money from people getting us to shut up than playing any gigs. 

I think I only broke a dozen sticks, and one snare playing. Most of the damage occurred during a drum off with an opposing band. About the only time I sounded good as I got to follow his lead.
