I would definitely be a piano. I would delight in fingers tickling my keys. Relish in the sounds vibrating from my strings. Enjoy in the various styles of music created from my being – classical, jazz, pop, funk, blues. I would be just as content in a grand hall, a smoky blues bar, or sitting in a corner of a modest home with a young child learning ‘Mary Had a Little Lamb’ or ‘Hot Cross Buns’.
I’ve always enjoyed the elegance of a piano. There is just something majestic about them. Their sizes and shapes. The keys, strings and peddles. It is the one musical instrument that I’ve always wanted to learn to play, but I never could get the hang of each hand doing something different on the keys. *sighs* it was just never going to be a skill I would pick up.
How about you, dear readers? What instrument would you choose and why? Share your thoughts with me in comments.
