Does any one of you play an instument and if yes which one?

 

I am currently learning how to play the Didgeridoo. Its the circular breating the hard bit.

Easy to come acros cheap ones during festivals... But I ordered a genuine one from Australia. Sounds bloody brilliant.

I've played the trumpet for eight years, though I haven't had much time this year, and I think my abilities have failed me. I'm hoping to pick up a violin or viola some time in the near future and take lessons.

Well, remembering the fingerings (which combination of valves to press down) is easy, however the embouchure (formation of your lips) is the hard part. For the lower notes your lips will be quite loose, but the higher notes need alot of tension. You can't just blow through the intrument either, you play as though you were making an elephant sound.

I play clarinet in marching band. I also play Tenor Saxophone and Bass clarinet, but only for concert season with the base, and for nothing special with the sax (Just wanted to learn to play the "star wars" theme song on that. Which I know, if anyone wants the notes and is a band geek like me :D ) So now the woodwinds, brass, and WTF instruments are all represented! How do you change notes with a Didgeridoo? I don't see any fingering spots, so I'm going to assume that it's like a brass instrument, just without range. Though if it does require fingering knowledge, I can tell you up front that learning and remembering fingerings is easy enough- its trying to play them at fifty-miles-an-hour that hard (Or kilometers and hour, for the rest of the world). Oh yeah, that and playing in tune... :D Anyway, good luck with it. Drive your neighbors nuts!

You can change notes by changing the speed at which your lips vibrate. Its hard to explain but if you try it you shall understand what i mean. :wink:

Alto... Sax...? Must, kill, non B flat instrument... GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! KILL KILL KILL!!!!!! DIEDIEDIE!!!! Sorry, had to get that out of my system- in my experiance all people in E flat or concert pitch are ass holes... Well, they are, honestly, I have yet to find a decent flute or percussion person out there! Though these Didgeroo things may be exceptions. Can you play any tunes on it, yet?
