I thought I would start a Musical Instruments on Stamps thread. Perhaps we can build an orchestra! My favorite instruments are the viola, English horn and French horn. Current favorite depends on which one I’ve last heard. I played drums from 4th-12th grade and while I got fairly good at it, I always wanted to play a melodic instrument. I quit in 12th grade when a kid beat me out for 1st chair which I had held since 8th grade. I took German instead which came in handy for me. I did purchase an Alto Sax in high school, taught myself a little…but without guided instruction I didn’t get very far. Of course, to play any instrument at the professional level is exceedingly difficult and requires a natural talent. That said, my impression is the French Horn is perhaps the most difficult to play well. I am open to other opinions!
