    If you woke up tomorrow and were an expert at playing a musical instrument, which would it be?

    A violin, definitely. I think because playing a violin is so hard anyway and waking up tomorrow and playing vioin will make me a genius.

      And the envy of a lot of people.  Haha I love the violin, probably more so than any other instrument.  Emilie Autumn plays the electric violin with a bit of victorian era-esque style to her whole image.  You should give her a listen to on youtube.

    I would say the bagpipes. Those look tough to do.

      That's definitely a unique choice!  I wouldn't mind learning to play a bagpipe myself.  I know a lot of people have issues with the way it sounds, but I personally love it!

    Piano. I've tried for years, but have never become a master. The music is addictive and the beauty of fingers running over the keys is gorgeous.

      I agree.  Just watching someone play the piano well can be breathtaking.

    Piano, definitely.  Not only can you play a variety of different piano styles (classical, ragtime, jazz, etc.) you can play organ, synthesizer, etc.  The problem for me has always been coordinating my two hands.

      I have the same issue with my two hands.  They just do what they want after a while.

    It would have to be the Guitar for me with the Banjo running a very close second. I've always wanted to learn, Never took the time, Unfortunately.

      Knowing how to play the guitar would be awesome, but I'd never given much thought to a banjo.  I don't know why, because when one is played well it's pretty amazing to watch.

      I think so as well.

    I am totally non-musical and have no talent in that area.  I would have a hard time choosing between piano and guitar. I suppose I would choose guitar as it is a bit more portable than a piano.

      It would definitely be a tad bit more portable!  Even if you don't have talent in that area, I assume you appreciate music at the same time.  That's exactly where I stand.  I can't play anything, but I can just close my eyes and fall in love with it.

    Guitar... No doubt! Eddie Van Halen is an insane shredder! And Eric Clapton's blues-inspired mastery is unparalleled. Yngwie Malmsteen, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards, Chuck Berry, B. B. King... I can go on and on. And don't get me started on my favorite metal guitarists. But, yes... Guitar.

    Guitar. No doubt about it.
    I'm very much an amateur when it comes to fiddling away at the strings. I like crafting my own sounds though, but I still want to be able to cover some songs and know all the chords.

    I've been playing bass guitar in bands for years, so I have to say that for the sake of the audience and my band-mates, I wish I could play more than root notes and easy scales. In my dreams, I wish I could play bass like Robbie Shakespeare.
