I play (and I use that term loosely here) a few instruments.

First: Violin. Played that on and off since I was 9 years old. I can remember my violin teacher smacking my hand holding the violin with her bow whenever it tried to creep up into a more comfortable position. I was in a concert group with that for a while (nearly passed out my first ever performance. I don't remember much, just thinking that everything was going quiet and then someone grabbing me and sitting me down on the steps in front of the stage).

Second: I sing. Love to sing, have been in choirs and stuff like that on and off for most of my life.

Third: The Tin Whistle. I taught myself this one, and I'm not very good at it, I can play a few tunes and am slowly learning how to read music for it, but with Uni I don't get much time to practice (and until recently I didn't have a music stand. Not good to try and play a wind instrument when you're scrunched up into weird positions trying to read the music on your bed).

Fourth: Recorder. Sort of. I can play Mary Had a Little Lamb, and one medieval tune. That's it.

Finally: Fife. I've only been playing this for about 6 months, and I don't get much of a chance to practice at all. I HATE the low D note with a passion. Can really only hit it properly 1/3rd of the time. Shrill instrument is shrill. I'm thinking of investing in some earplugs for when I practice so my ears don't ring when I'm finished practicing. To give you an could hear these things a good mile away over the sound of cannon and gun fire.
