    Re: What's your favourite musical instrument?

    I chose the lute.
    I particularly like the Baroque Lute, with all those extra bass strings on it.

    13 course Baroque Lute by EB Jones.

    I like the crisp, glassy but ethreal sound of the lute - anything from the Bach Lute Suites to Dowland's Lute music.
    http://www.cs.dartmouth.edu/~wbc/lute/lute.html
    I play guitar myself, but have played lots of lute music on the guitar.
    I also like the lyre, an instrument that the group Sequentia used to good effect on their musial adaptations of the Eddas and Beowulf.

    I advanced to a certain point an the piano and couldn't get my left hand to not play what my right was (Which is odd, as I am able to play the harp fairly well) - so, on the piano, I 'tinker'.

    Great love any and all percussion instuments, too.

    AW: What's your favourite musical instrument?

    I've been able to play piano and guitar fairly good for how little I know and how little effort I pursued playing. In middle school I was in band and played clarinet. I would've rather drums, flute or xylophone but the instrument sales-people talked me into it.

    Funny that a xylophone isnt on the poll, I really like the sound of them and once you know the piano xylophone isnt much different.

    Does anyone have sound clips of these other exotic instruments? I'm quite ignorant as to that (thank American schools!) and don't know which to call which, but chances are good Ive heard them all before. Once I know which is which I could make an educated vote.

    I also think it's not so much the instrument but what you do with it.
    Most instruments can be played beautifully.

    I'm not sure if this counts as a musical instrument but it definitely produces a unique sound.

    This is called a 'Megasbass Waterphone':

    I love George Harrison's use of the Sitar!

    After David Crosby of the Byrds introduced him to the work of sitar master Ravi Shankar in 1965,[71] Harrison---whose interest in Indian music was stirred during the filming of Help!, which used Indian music as part of its soundtrack---played a sitar on the Rubber Soul track "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", expanding the already nascent Western interest in Indian music.[72] Harrison listed his early influences as Carl Perkins,[73] Bo Diddley,[74] Chuck Berry[75] and the Everly Brothers.[76]
    Retrieved From:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_...on#Guitar_work

    The sitar (Hindi: सितार, Bengali: সেতার, Urdu: ستار, Persian: سی تار ) is a plucked stringed instrument predominantly used in Hindustani classical music, where it has been ubiquitous since the Middle Ages. It derives its resonance from sympathetic strings, a long hollow neck and a gourd resonating chamber.

    Used throughout the Indian subcontinent, particularly in Northern India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, the sitar became known in the western world through the work of Pandit Ravi Shankar beginning in the late 1950s, particularly after George Harrison of The Beatles took lessons from Shankar and Shambhu Das[1] and played sitar in songs including "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)". Shortly after, The Rolling Stones used sitar in "Paint It, Black" and a brief fad began for using the exotic instrument in pop songs.

    I love the warpipes, when I play I want to kill somebody, which it not really that special for me, as I feel like that most of the time anyway.

    That is why I now play the Irish mandolin, it carms me down!!!!!!

    What? No 'manualist'? ... let's give him a hand!




    ----------------

    Ok just kidding... :-D



    I would have to say guitar but that is extremely varied (steel-string to 'classical nylon' to flamenco nylon, to harp guitars to solid body electrics to jazz hollow body archtops etc)


    I tend to like classical guitar and flamenco guitar and certain blues and jazz and rockabilly type things but in the rock/pop/blue world I don't like everything .


    -------------------

    I certainly like tons of instruments


    cello, piano, hurdy gurdy, sitar, oud, lute ( from french for l'oud), the theorbo (a lute with a long extension way past the normal headstock for additional open bass strings ) ... synthesizers! They are so varied and at the far end can be interesting "noise" chaos machines (which I kind of like ) ...etc ... etc

    I actually listen to a lot of minimalist drone/ambient which I suppose some people might not consider music. Some of that may have altered field recordings or whatever in it.

    I've always been interested in percussion instruments, though my experience with them is limited. But my brother-in-law is a drummer with a group.

    I like to listen to drum covers, such as the ones on YouTube. If conducted properly, I think they're actually an improvement over the original.

    Sina is a German lass who started learning to play drums at age ten. Her father is a player/songwriter. She is now nineteen, obviously experienced, and provides very entertaining drum cover videos, such as the following complex piece. (She said her small basement studio was so hot at this time it was nearly suffocating her by the time she finished this session... Now that's admirable dedication. )

    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
