You DEFINITELY don't want me.
There has always been a piano in our home; however it hasn't been tuned in over 20 years. That's no accident; now, when I hit a wrong note, I can say it was the right key, but that the piano is out of tune.
I tried trumpet for one year in high school, but,in consideration of the world around me, I gave up on that. Violin didn't fare much better, although it was quieter than the trumpet. Our engineering school had a so-called band, which accepted anyone with a pulse; so I wore a Mozartian wig and played recorder....for two years.
Do you think anyone heard that recorder over the trumpets, trombones, cymbals, and drums? Not likely - I'm still alive. So, like I said, you don't want me in any band you start.<P>By the way, Nicole, is there any such thing as a single bass? Seriously, was there once an instrument with a higher register than the double bass, or is it simply now called a cello?
