I sing, and play a little of guitar, piano and ukulele. I'm planning on taking my ukulele as a carry on but want to buy an acoustic guitar out there. I'm less likely to get involved in jams and playalongs because i don't tend to learn existing songs, i just want to walk through a lake filled valley and write songs there
That sounds beautiful!
I have been wanting to learn to play acoustic guitar for quite a long time now. A friend of mine told me to just go to a pawn shop and pick one up, but I've never made time for it. But now that I'm fulfilling (at least) one of my dreams by living and working in Japan, why not work on another? I hope I'm placed near some of you guitar players, so maybe you can help me shop around~
My native instrument is trumpet. I'll definitely bring my Bb and I'd like to bring my piccolo (trumpet) if possible, though it seems exceedingly unlikely that I'll find a place to use the piccolo, but it's just so cool. And I bought a melodica that I can't keep my hands off of
. Also I like to sing. And I might invest in a keyboard.
I once learned to play the Bb scale on a trumpet. When I was a freshman in high school, I saw a video of our school jazz band playingChuck Mangione's Feels So Good
. There was a junior who did the flugelhorn solos on her trumpet, and I was just mesmerized. As an alto sax player, I knew I wanted to join the jazz band (which was full of talented kids... until they graduated and my class became the 1st chairs
). But I always remembered that amazing girl on the trumpet, so I tried it in my senior year. And that was pretty much it, lol. Would love to hear you play though, especially the piccolo trumpet!
I say again, you all need to have a jam session at the hotel!
