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

The last post means so much to so many that to be able to play the trumpet for ANZAC would be my honour and dream.

Piano because despite more than 10 years of lessons I still can't play the damn thing!

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.

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.
