Thread Name: Changing musical interests.
Subject: RE: Changing musical interests.
I'm sure your neighbours are much happier now!! (Joke - I used to share a house with a highland piper - I was very glad when he took up the mandolin).

It sounds as if you've not really changed interests, just instrument. I used to play penny whistle and recorders a lot. Trouble is, the sessions I could get to just played the same bunch of tunes over and over, so I never progressed. I haven't given up playing them, but it has been several years now since I went to a playing session. I sing mainly now. I'm performing the same sort of tunes as I used to, just in a different medium.

I think you'll probably go back to pipes. The mere fact that you've kept "a few sets" 'in reserve' indicates that the fire hasn't gone out, it's merely dampned down a while. The accelerant will be some new tune you hear and you'll think 'that would sound great on the inflatable goat', it's how these things go.
