What Instrument Should You Play?

My friend, Nancy, who has these simply beautiful blog posts which just speak to my soul,(and I always want to write those things!) did this test to see what kind of an instrument she should play. She tested for a harp. It suits her and she has beautiful hands.

I decided to try it. Interestingly enough, I'm supposed to play a guitar. I started playing guitar at age 12 and still have three beautiful guitars--one electric and two accoustics.(one was my first guitar in the photo below) I can't play so well anymore due to my bum fingers, but all of my boys and husband play(and play many instruments.)

I did write songs, but my son, Jordan, writes fabulous songs and he is a natural musician who taught himself to play the guitar on my first guitar and looking through my music. (I was never that good.) But anyway, it was interesting. What instrument should you play?

You Should Play the Guitar

You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.

You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.

You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.

It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.

Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.

You could emerge as a sensitive songwriter... or a manic rock star.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being rebellious

Your secondary personality characteristic: tenacity

Here is my family and some of their performing moments:

I should play the accordian! HA! Actually, I play the piano and am the music director of our children's show in our local summer theatre.

I don't particularly care for the accordian . . . but my husband took lessons as a kid.

I play no instrument, but according to the quiz I should play the drums. Maybe if I beat them with my head, 'cause I'm not sure if I'm coordinated enough to use the sticks!!

I wasn't able to come back and comment on this sooner.

LOL on the accordian, Pam. I think this is a commentary on your personality more than what you really SHOULD play. (Accordians are happy music for happy people!) But the fact you play the piano--which isn't it half of an accordian--blown up?

Carrie, drums are so physical! Two of my boys have drums in their skill set of instruments and let me tell you, you could have muscles playing the drums. What a workout! It takes such coordination. I bet you could be playing them in no time! LOL.

I like to listen--does that mean I'm an observer?? ha! It was fun, anyway.
