Walking Eagle Instruments: pros and cons (43) RE: Instruments: pros and cons 08 Mar 04

I play the lap dulcimer, six string guitar, 12 string guitar, and acoustic bass guitar.

I've played the dulcimer longest. All of our songs are usually in the key of D so that is sort of limiting. We can fly on reels and jigs. The most limiting thing for me on dulcimer is that I read music and I've never take the time to find out where the notes on the bass string are.

As for my guitars, right now the thing that limits me most is that I can't find a gig bag to fit my bass. Pretty dumb limits huh?

Oh, I also play native american flute. No limits there as you can make up songs on the spot. I use it mostly to let fly creatively. I'm also just learning to play the jug. So far, it's the weight of my jug that's a problem. This is a family jug that must be at least 75 yrs old. Getting rid of it is out of the question. Plus I like it.
