The double bass, for sure - I love it's deep, dark sound and the way it can be used instead of drums to hold the beat of the song.

Every Rock Band needs a keyboard
And I can play it with my eyes closed
I can change the sound to any instrument so
There only needs to be me in our band and Elmo!

Elmo would be most adored

The entire band would be magicians.

My daughter is a bit of a hog so she would be holding the mic (or spoon, paper, anything really) and maybe playing sax or trumpet, flute or the old faithful shaker - depending on her mood. Of course I would be told what to play with her leftovers!!
