D G Melodeon, or used to. Reached the stage where I could read music and join in jam sessions. Have trouble now playing anything; ashamed!

You would recognise all the notes but not necassarily in the right order.

If I sound like a Rock Star, well I am really.

I play Mandolin, Tenor Banjo, D/G Melodeon and have a go on the Snare Drum. The Mandolin is my first love of instruments, I have three.

My old man bought me guitar when I was ten, he came home pissed and trod on it, replaced it with a mouth organ ffs, he managed to stand on that too, so the only thing I ever played well was truant.

Maybe you should have been more tidy with your toys then.


Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

My skills on the acoustic guitar impressed my Wife so much that she took the opportunity and sold it when I was working away many years ago. I've just got another now and I'll try and learn it again when we're away in the van, maybe better this time otherwise I guess it'll be 'accidentaly' left on a beach somewhere.

I got a lovely little Russian Lap Harp at a fair last weekend for £12, it'll sound lovely when the tuning key I just had to spend £7 on because my smallest adjustable spanner isn't up to the job - but it's an investment, right?

I played the Clarinet at school, still got it in the loft but not even looked at it for 40 years, all in good time I guess.

btw All comments about other things, like 'the fool' and 'right notes, just not necessarily in the right order' have been used already, so I'll quit now whilst I'm ahead (discuss)
