    What else is nicer than to express the own

    feelings in music? I play different types of flutes and a little bit piano. But my most favourite instrument is my harmonium (the ancient form of the piano). Whenever I want to express my feelings my harmonium is ready for me. :-)

    I play four. Well, one is my voice.

    I used to sing lead in three different bands when I was young. I also play the guitar, the piano/Yamaha keyboard and the flute. I love music and being an active part in not only listening to it, but playing the instruments as well.

    though I also play the folk guitar. I learned the clarinet as a kid but sadly gave it up. Never mind,the piano is almost an orchestra in itself!

    I play guitar and bass,

    but recently I've had very little time to play. My puppy is afraid of the sound that my acoustic guitar makes, so I can't play much anymore. Has anyone been in a similar situation? How do you cope and keep up your "skills"?
