I have also given a thought to purchasing a drum set instead. On the surface, it looks easier than learning to play a string instrument. However, I also know that drums require more energy. So at this point it could go either way.

I can sing by imitating pitches but I can’t actually read music. My best friend is an accomplished violinist and she says that, without fail, you will suck for the first three years of violin playing. I am impatient and I think that, for my first instrument, I ought to start with something that has more immediate results. And besides, I love electric guitar solos!

I’ve just started going for my ukulele (my first ever musical instrument) last Sunday ~ and it was great fun, albeit a tad scary, too.
Also, I’ve been practising almost everyday with my own sweet little uke, so hopefully, I get better at it♥ :) 2 years ago
First need to pick an instrument 2 years ago
I play violin, viola, guitar, and a bit of cello and flute. I’ve known how to read music since I could read words. If anybody needs help or support, feel free to ask :) 2 years ago
I am immensely artistically-challenged, a fact I’ve always lamented. My dad is a terrific painter. Why couldn’t I have inherited an ounce of that talent? :)
A few years ago I took guitar lessons. I SUCKED. My bf plays guitar in a death metal band. He also draws pretty well. I guess I’m more logically-minded. I’m good with science and chemistry. Not so good with being creative. So this goal’s going to be tough. I’m not going to discard it just yet, but I really have no idea which instrument to try or where to begin. I guess I’ll check out what the folks who have completed this goal have to say about it. 2 years ago
Does anybody have any recommendations as to how to go about finding a good (patient) piano teacher, please? :-) 2 years ago
