Now this is a tough one to decide! The only instruments I have actually played (and not played very well, mind you) are guitars (of which I own three, one of which is really nice and I really need to play it more), a harmonica, a little stone ocarina and bongo drums. And although I like all of these in different ways, none of them are really my favourite instrument.
I love pianos, as my previous post might suggest, and I am really determined to learn how to play the piano. I also love the sound of the saxophone, an instrument which my dad plays, and so I have grown up listening to and loving it (artists who use a lot of saxophones, such as Supertramp, Gerry Rafferty and Dave Matthews Band, I like specifically because of this love of the instrument).
But for me, the instrument which really just commands my attention, and makes me drop what I’m doing just to listen to it, is one which I very rarely hear in music – the cello. It just sounds so deep and melancholy, and I absolutely love it. Listen to this Nick Drake song, “The Cello Song”, and you’ll see why I love it so much.
What’s your favourite instrument?
