    More like some crazy crossbreed of scottish, swedish, cornish and dutch + a few other smaller influences. Born and raised in Sweden, the cold north ^^ But I do love celtic music in general. My personal favourite is The Corries. Well, at least right now

    What kind of tunes/songs did your band play?

    I sat down last night and worked out the keyboard parts to Dire Straits' "Walk of Life," as rendered on the fiddle. The opening strains work out nicely double-stopped on the G and D strings. The first combo is high G and low B, then high F and low B, then high E and low A, and those chords work for the rest of the opening phrase. It's handy, because the last two are at the same position on the string... the first is the second finger across the G and D strings, and the second is the index finger across the G and D strings, all from the first position.

    The melody line took a little getting used to... bouncing between the first finger on the A and D strings, not a key in which I'm used to playing. But then, not all songs can be written in the holy bluegrass key of G.

    Played piano for a few years when I was a adolescent. I was told that I have a 'remarkable' proficiency for sight-reading music.

    I play the keyboard, drums, and clarinet. On the other hand, I haven't played them in quite a while. I'd be exceedingly happy if I could learn how to play the guitar.

    EVERYBODY plays the guitar. Why don't you learn something different yet cool, like lute, or tenor guitar, or mandocello?

    LOL thanks Oberon for making me feel worse, considering the fact that everyone else knows how to play vs. myself. You know the annoying people you see meddling around with the instruments in stores? That's me! I'd be all for the tenor guitar, though. I'm all for it, I just want to play some strings!

    Okay... it's probably truer to say that lots of people play guitar. Not everybody knows how to wail on a blues harp, though.

    Ha! LOL I don't know, do you think I can pull off the blues harp? I'd probably pass out in the process, but it would surely make me unique wouldn't it
