    Musical instruments are boreing, you dont get the same pleasure of listening to it as you play, it gets boreing once you start playing.


    If you dont get a proper tune you get feed up and give up.


    I think people learn instruments mainly to show off to others, because when you do it by your self and for yourself it is meaningless.

    I joined a flute class sometime back. Learnt Sa Ri Ga and Ma. Gave it all up at Pa and the world of music missed having a legend! I'm sure there must be some defect in my flute that prevented me from doing Pa and Dha!

    I can play any musical instrument I can get my hands on. It's not so difficult.

    I always wanted to play the keyboard. Could not afford one when I was little. I will buy my little ones pretty soon.

    "I bought a wooden whistle,
    but it wooden whistle,
    and I bought a steel whistle,
    but it steel wooden whistle,
    So I bought a tin whistle,
    and now I tin whistle!"
