I'm interested in finding out what instruments other people play.
My main instruments are oboe, voice, and recorder (soprano and alto). I've also dabbled in self-teaching books for piano, flute, tin whistle, cornet, and guitar. I have a crumhorn on loan which is very fun to play. We have one book of crumhorn music that I like to use, and I also play recorder music. My grandpa's clarinet resides in our house but I've only succeeded in making a few notes squeak out.
I like to play music! Sometimes I'll take up hours rotating through all the various instruments in our house.

I play the entire family of recorders...by that I mean bass through sopranino (I have yet to lay hands on a garklein or great bass)... I also play 'cello pretty seriously (3rd chair in my school's orchestra). I own a D flageolet and can play a few tunes on it from memory...but...that...erm..probably doesn't count...And then I've taken a 1 semester course on piano.
It's funny--though I've had more than a few chances to play krumhorn I've yet to make just one stupid note. ARRRGHH!!!! I have absolutely no lung power.
...Har Har...There you have it.

I forgot about the higher recorders. I have a sopranino which I play very rarely and usually only when I'm in the house by myself. I play garklein whenever I can get my hands on one. A couple years back I played a garklein solo at Whitewater. That was a lot of fun.
I still can't manage to get my fingers on tenors or basses without hurting myself.
It's probably easier for oboists to switch to crumhorn than cellists. I have an alto on loan from a friend, which I guess is a nice one. Other peoples' instruments I haven't been able to make notes on either. You just have to blow really hard!

I remember your solo at Whitewater well! It was swell! (Almost the best part of the weekend in my opinion...but the music always wins out.)
(Regrets, gotta miss this year...sigh.)
Personally, I think a bassoon player would work better than oboe. But it depends on the Krum. And don't sweat the fingers. I wish I could play the gark. But my fingers are toooo big. In time, you'll play them all, I'm sure! Just hang in there.
