I have a fairly solid four. Guitar, mandolin, clarinet and bongos. I have a basic understanding of/have in my household/ occasionally diddle around with Piano, harmonica, bass, and ozark harp/mouth harp/its many other names. and I want more.
part of the goal is getting more proficient at the latter four and part of it is learning 5 new ones. I’ve messed around a lot with ukulele, although I’m not sure if I want to get one since it’s currently the token fad instrument for “eccentric types”. Back in high school, I tried learning Baritone (pretty much hated it) and still have the trombone mouthpiece that went with it so I’m considering tromboning it up (played one twice).Others I’ve experimented with and think I might like are violin/viola, trumpet (although after failing with baritone, I doubt trumpet will be much better), and banjo.
I’m also considering the possibility of a concertina or accordion, but I don’t know of any stores near by that sell them, they seem to be really expensive, and I’d like to at least try them out in a store before I buy one. Ideally, I’d like something I can carry around, can play anywhere (don’t have to plug in), and something with a nice mellow tone I can play chords on to accompany myself while singing. But the on;y things I know of that fit that criteria are guitar and (eh) ukulele.
