I found another cloud storage site. Here's a few minutes of wandering up and down the frets. Glass slide, steel stringed acoustic guitar in standard tuning.

I've a way to go before I can accompany myself effectively, but it's a lovely sound.

I couldn't get their Play button to work, but there's a little download link over at the left of the screen.

I play the piano but stop taking lessons a while ago. I am still practicing some simple songs trying to keep up.
I always wanted to know chords as many people who play piano do.

I also have a pet fish. I got it 2 days ago from a friend. I had fish before but the same thing happened to them... They died. I hope I can keep this one for a while... :wink:

I was a trumpet player as a kid. Made the mistake, when the scout jamboree leaders were mucking around with a battered old bugle, of delivering a pretty darn perfect rendition of the Australian "Re-VALLey" and the American "REV-a-lee" with it. Guess who then got to get up before dawn and wake the entire scout camp? :roll:

Could also deliver a reasonably credible performance on the trombone. But I was not a natural player. My Mum was. Guitar and banjo-mandolin. When she was young, she and her friends used to go and perform in the prisons back in the day. My wife also can sit in front of the piano and "busk" indefinitely. Our musical tastes intersect at many points, and she's happy to deliver some of my old hymn favourites too.

Heaven is mostly what you make it.

This being the topic in relation to both pets and instruments, I hope that you may like this type of instrument I am not about to mention.

See whether you like it.

I am also a violinist :D Been playing for 10+ years. I am currently the vice principal of my youth orchestra. Currently, I am working on Mendelssohn Concerto in E minor. Besides classical repetoire, I also enjoy other genres, including musicals and pop.

Unfortunately, I have no pets as of now :( However, I do have a plush bunny whom I pretend it's a real one :lol: In addition, I did briefly own two pet fishies in the past as a child, but both of them died very quickly. Their names were Melody and Dorothy.

In the future, I do envision having either a dog or a cat, or maybe even both. :9:

I played classical guitar at school. After school I had a gap where I didn't really play music at all. For the last twenty five years I've played recorders in a group, mostly renaissance music. About fifteen years ago I was trying to make a living as a baroque flute maker, so I played 18th century one-key flutes. Now I just play the recorders.

We have four geese, two ducks, two cats and a bunch of tropical fish. We used to have a lot more geese and ducks, but the local badgers ate them. It was like a scene from a horror movie.

Badgers eat geese - I didn't know that. Maybe I should be thankful that no one decided Australia needed badgers, instead of wondering why on earth our ancestors were stupid enough to introduce rabbits and foxes - and quite recently deer. The goats one can understand and we have more wild camels than anywhere in the world so they say.

I think Badgers eat pretty much whatever they want to eat and will rip through wooden or plastic doors to get to it. Slugs, chicken food, chickens, worms, cattle feed, horse feed (but not horses) etc. They will eat the highest energy/protein food they can find, in bins, poultry houses, rubbish tips, underground, wherever.

But despite badgers eating their way through our pets, I still think they are remarkable and beautiful creatures just doing what comes naturally... I remember taking my daughter on a walk a few winters ago to find one of the local sets and we listened in the complete darkness to the snuffling and grunting of the badgers waking up and coming out to start an evening's foraging. Magical.

Yes, it is lucky that some early European didn't think "we've got such a problem with [insert name of out-of control imported species here] what we really need is a large omnivorous mammal with a large appetite for [problem species name] and an even larger appetite for tasty indigenous wildlife. LET'S GET SOME BADGERS! How did we get through the eighteenth/nineteenth/twentieth [delete as appropriate] century without them? Hurrah!

Close call there.

As to the badgers, they're very clean. They keep everything in order.
