    Ah...this is easy. I love the violin. I played for many years during my school years. There is no feeling like being part of an orchestra, or being able to make music. I'm fond of tin whistles, too.

    An odd thing for a lover of black metal to say, but if we go along the lines of beautiful sound it would have to be most folk instruments, especially the violin/fiddle, the tin-whistle/irish flute; though the harp has a very soft and beautiful sound as well. And yes, I like the beauty of the sound of Celtic music, as you might have guessed from my chosen instruments...

    For ugliest sounding instrument, the award would probably have to go to the Banjo. So can't stand its sound :runaway

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Most beautiful sounding instrument

    I'd have to say either the violin or the violoncello. The poor viola always gets left out. Not that it doesn't have a lovely tone, but the repertoire is so small that we rarely get to hear it as a solo instrument.

    I play the clavichord and the harpsichord myself, but, though I love the sound of both of them, neither is as rapturously moving as the violin or the violoncello. (BTW, I do NOT agree with Sir Thomas Beecham who said that the harpsichord sounds like "two skeletons copulating on a tin roof.") eyes:

    A great classical guitarist is a guy called Peppino D'Agostino great on CD even better live.Also i really like spanish guitar a great spanish / rock fusion for me would be The Doors song Spanish Caravan.I think Robbie Kreiger of the Doors was a great classical guitarist i admire anyone that can fingerpick that smoothly
