Bit of tangent perhaps, but I thought I may poll
the mental state of our members.
I moved aboard a couple of weeks ago, sadly had to scrap everything and return home as the missus is needing some heart surgery. Best laid plans and all that.
But, before I set off down to the boat, I'd been to a fiddlers convention and was well impressed. " Perhaps I could get me one of them fiddles and practice when I get down to the boat" I says. After mentioning it aloud to friends, I ended up in the possession of a most beautiful 1920s violin.
Having no clue how to play the thing I did some online wandering and picked up the general idea. Even now though it has that gentle strain of a scalded cat getting flayed alive. I need more practice obviously, but how perfect is the solitude of a boat to learn a musical instrument?
So that was me how bout you?
Anyone else decided that a boat was a fine place to learn a musical instrument and if so which one?
