Subject: RE: Easy instrument to learn
Now is the time to find out who your friends are! You need to try out a lot of different instruments and see if anything suits you. So see who will lend you an instrument for a week just to see what happens.
I started playing Anglo concertina because I was lent one for a couple of days and I got a tune out of it in the first hour.
In the past year I've been offered and tried a bassoon, a bass guitar, a hurdy gurdy and a tabor pipe, none of which suit me as well as my first love th Anglo concertina, but it was interesting to see what I could get on with (tabor pipe and hurdy gurdy) and what was difficult.
