Although, on average you can get a decent one for 'normal people' for around $3000 - $8000 (the higher cost ones are concert bassoons). Reeds are expensive too at $16 a go. Especially if you keep chewing on them like I do.

    He he, so true! Just out of curiousity - what type of instrument do you think it would be easiest to improvise on? Plus, I guess it depends on the type of music...

    Well I play the drums and I'm going to have to go with drums. With melodic instruments you have to worry about keys and scales etc whereas with drums theres no set notes (and a standard drum can't be tuned to a note anyway).

    I've been playing the violin for less than a year but since I managed to finish preliminary in 6 months I'm a first grader now...though I wish I was a better player.
    I played the keyboard when i was younger but sucked, so I quit and took up the flute. Play that for a year before the school decided it didn't want a band anymore so it took back all our insturments and we were left without music (yes...quite sad).

    I'd really like to self teach myself the guitar though, it looks like fun.

    Haha, I would have no idea. I have only played the guitar since the start of this year and had basically no music experience before that. I don't think you could tell unless you tried every single instrument though.

    guitar, and the style 12 bar blues, it can't get any easier than 12 bar blues

    1 2 3 4
    | I / / / | I / / / | I / / / | I / / / |

    5 6 7 8
    | IV / / / | IV / / / | I / / / | I / / / |

    9 10 11 12
    | V7 / / / | V7 / / / | I / / / | / / / / |


    this is an example of the progression of 12 bar blues, it's very basic, dominant7s are more commonly used for the root now days it seems.
    It's simple, you play the root note I for 4 bars, then play 4th chord for 2 bars back to root chord for another 2 bars, then play the 5th chord for 2 bars and ends with the root chord.
    Of course it can be played in any key.

    i know it sounds confusing now but it's easy as baking fish in a microwave oven.

    I've played a few instruments and u can't go wrong with keyboard. It has a recording thing and different settings and acumpniants (sp?) and rhythms. it's great! or if u don't have one, a piano is pretty good too.

    I keep my keyboard in me bedroom, next to my desk and when i need a break from whatever, i just muck around and whatever. I love all the flashing lights and buttons, lol

    I was watching Aussie idol a few weeks ago and there was a close-up of a guy playing the triangle, but it wasn't just the *ding* that we think it is, he was full on playing it like a proper auxillary percussion instrument, and i was like 'OMG there is a hard way to play the triangle!!' I was gobsmacked, i didn't even care about the performer!!!

    He was holding it all funny and everything!

    in year 7 music we laughed at the triangle and our teacher gave us this big lecture about how complicated it is and its very underrated. there are like 300+ sounds you can get out of it. ive never listened to the triangle the same way since.

    Meh... I want to learn a new instrument next year, and I've finally narrowed it down to three things: Double Bass; Lute; Lyre/Celtic Harp. Although I have no idea whether you can get teachers for the last two.

    Actually i was talking about downloading a version of the song from Kazaa or something, just so you could listen to it. That wouldnt be too hard would it?

    Try and get Tony Macalpines version. Itd be the easiest to find.
