I want to get the kids playing musical intruments again. They took piano lessons for a while in preschool. Ben had recorder in 3rd grade and really liked it. I think he's pretty decent. I am thinking clarinet might be a good choice for him. Portable, and you can play in the orchestra and band both. Adam had a great touch on the piano but he has asked me about drums. Oh boy! Always the bad boys in the percussion section, right?!?
I wish I could play guitar. I think piano and guitar are great for singers because you can accompany yourself. Guitar is great because its portable, too. I played bass for a bit in high school and that was fun. My bass was a red one I called Ethelred the Unready. LOL. It'd be cool to play something fancy like a ernie ball music man steve morse guitar but really I think acoustic guitar is awesome. My Dad plays and I used to love listening to him sing to us.
