I've seen a bunch of guitarists around (me being one of them!) but have we got any rare instrumentalists out here? Like Dave with his thumb piano?

I'm currently teaching myself the erhu violin and the accordion at the moment!

I heard some street musicians playing the erhu in newyork, I think it is a really beautiful instrument. Some ppl with me thought its sound was too abrasive but I love that. I think there is a painful drama to the sound,,, like a cry or wail. I sampled one in a song i made one time.


I have a hard enough time playing normal instruments, let alone weird 1ss > . < I have a Melodica, but I dont think its too weird + I cant play it that well.

Yes! The erhu sounds very....human and I decided to get one after having sampled the instrument in a bunch of my stuff. I love it so much because it just has so much emotion in the sound.

I used to play a noseflute that a friend gave me as a humorous birthday gift. Very badly, but then it would have been sort of creepy had I been a very proficient noseflutist. And then the noseflute stopped working and for some inexplicable reason, I never bothered to replace it.

I'm getting a Theremin(i) in a week or two. That's pretty 'weird' isn't it?

Oh man! We had a theremin at my uni. So difficult to play! Good luck.

I tried it at Thomann a week or two ago. It seemed doable with a bit of practice. It will spice up studio work for sure.
