The Drums!! To take my aggression and frustration out in loud, rhythmic style!

The Bagpipes, they've fascinated me ever since I was a little girl. I adore the way they sound.

Electric Guitar, it gets the girls!! And little and big boys alike, all dream of being a rock star

A violin because it looks sophisticated and hard instrument to play.

Bagpipes! They give me goosebumps, I have been in love with them since I was little. Apparently my great grandmother was the same, she passed away right before I was born, so even though I never got to meet her, I feel like we have connected and I think of her when i hear bagpipes
And i know thats more than 25 words so I can't win, but bagpipes are special to me

Would love to play the guitar - could then do duets with hubby as he plays beautifully

I would play the saxaphone as I think it is a very "cool" instrument, but I am better at playing the fool.

The guitar, it sounds so beautiful and you can play a variety and wide selection of beautiful music
Posted 17 April 2012 - 12:08 PM
It depends on who you ask, my child thinks I can play all musical instruments, maybe because she doesn't care what it sounds like. But really I have never had a single lesson in music but would love to learn the guitar, maybe after I have mastered the toy piano.

Piano. It is such as versatile instrument. Two can play, or it can accompany anything, including my 3 year old's singing.
Posted 17 April 2012 - 08:59 PM
The magical mandolin. I have vivid memories of my grandfather playing this magnificent instrument and I've dreamt of my children hearing what I heard as a child in realtime.

I'd love to play the cello because when it's played right, it's so peaceful yet haunting at the same time.
Posted 18 April 2012 - 08:23 AM
I would play the guitar! For sure it can be as upbeat and exciting or relaxing as you want and it looks enjoyable!
Posted 18 April 2012 - 06:07 PM
Love to play the piano and accompany myself singing-well if i coulsd sing that is:-)
Posted 18 April 2012 - 09:46 PM
Pots and pans! Always a unique sound but my kids play it better than me!
Posted 19 April 2012 - 02:35 PM
The Piano, there's just something about the music that to me is beautiful... would love to play at family gatherings.
Posted 19 April 2012 - 02:45 PM
D*R*U*M*S!!!! What a great way to work our my frustrations and clear the house of people!! LOL
Posted 19 April 2012 - 04:37 PM
Hi I would love to rekindle my passion with the use of a Keyboard. It is so much fun to accompany the music with singing.
Posted 19 April 2012 - 08:03 PM
The harp; it's an instrument from such a bygone era. So relaxing and versatile - I'm sure you could play along to Rock music with it!
Posted 19 April 2012 - 10:25 PM
The LAGERPHONE - what could be more fun than rattling bottle lids on a stick??A fading Aussie tradition I'd like to revive and pass on.
Posted 20 April 2012 - 12:31 AM
The violin: I tried learning for years when I was young and never succeeded, would love to give it another go now
Posted 20 April 2012 - 10:55 PM
My grandsons are impressed with my tambourine playing...think I should stick at it before they become aware on nanna's limited musical skills.
