    I've Tried To On Quite A Few Occasions

    ...but , like most other things, I can only dabble at the art. All I can really do it pick out notes - i mean, strings - one by one. It's enough for me for now, but it's sad. I just have no aptitude for playing musical instruments: musically challenged is a personal favorite...
