Subject: RE: Easy instrument to learn
I've got a treble and tenor recorder, just don't play them much.
The treble is a wooden Schott that an aunt and 3 cousins clubbed together to buy for my 21st, years ago. I fancied it to play the Alto line, since that is what I sing, but that's not how the dots are written and I didn't fancy transposing, even an octave. So I've never got to the stage where I can play reliably from the dots without having to think about it (or shifting unpredictably into descant fingering).
I bought an Aulos plastic tenor a few years back, but I am very slow on it, and I can't play it by ear.
Yes I know, I should be practising instead of whinging.
