      Yes, actually. That is why I was able to teach my own self the guitar when I was interested in it as a teen. Other instruments-not so much. :)

      I just clicked on your response here and have to chuckle- NO, I am not a good musician. I tinker around with musical instruments and appreciate those who play well. :)

      Great hub. some of the instruments are similar to the traditional Ethiopian music instruments I wrote about in my hub. This is one of the ways music brings the world together.
