    Keyboards, piano, clarinet, sax, flute, and oboe.

    The sounds of keyboards and piano express my soul. Love playing them, and the possibilities of sounds are endless.

    Main instrument is clarinet, and I enjoy the sound of it. They can be sweet sounding if played right.

    Saxophone is fun to play as well, can make a lot of noise!

    Flute has always sounded very pretty to me. I was going to take that up when I was getting into band, but opted for clarinet.

    Oboe has always sounded sweetly melancholic to me. I quite like it.

    edit: can't play all of these.. just like
    KDude... I had to look up a couple of these. Now that I know the name of it, there is this old guy who plays the erhu in one of the subway stations. I always thought it was supposed to sound awful, but then I saw a film clip of all these trained musicians playing and it was soooo beautiful. I guess he just didn't know what he was doing!


    Anyway, apparently my favorites are all really "annoying" ones (according to my one particular friend):

    bagpipes
    banjo
    didgeridoo
    accordion

    I also like deep percussion.

    ^ agreed, gromit. i proudly dig accordion, banjo, sometimes bagpipes, wailing harmonica.. and there are other instruments my friends consider god-awful.

    heard sitar in the subway for the first time in a long time.. beautiful!

    piano, cello, percussion, fiddle... i think it often depends on the music it's making.

    As far as tone, probably piano. It's also best for songwriting.

    But when it comes to sheer physical enjoyment of playing, bass guitar all the way. You can really dig into and manhandle it so much more than guitar, and it actually sounds better when you do.

    Not to mention the bass community allows for so many different ways to be good. There are just a lot of different sounds you can make with it and a lot of different approaches...most electric guitarists are concerned primarily with how fast you can shred, and the guitar community is not as supportive as the bass community.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    synth

    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Both the viloin and piano never cease to amaze and inspire me.

    The organ would be a close runner-up; those massive organs that are in churches and whatnot.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    I absolutely adore the flute and piano. I play both and never tire of the different sounds I can get from them... <3 I want to get some different types of flute though. I'm looking at dizis and irish flutes at the moment, which I'll hopefully buy at some point over the summer (when I get a job! )

    I've always wanted to learn the French Horn. It sounds awesome!

    I also love the guitar and the harp. My older brother writes a lot of acoustic guitar music which is pretty good, and my cousin plays the harp. Both awesome
