A saxophone is one of the most versatile and beautiful instruments in the world. It has such a massive possible range of different types of saxophones from Soprillo to Subcontrabass. A saxophone is also amazing cause of its possible sound it can play anything from jazz to classical music. Overall the saxophone is a amazing instrument (I Play Tenor and Alto and I may be starting Bari soon)

Started playing the Tenor under a year ago and I am already in the 2nd best band at camp out of 4!!! That just proves how easy and great this instrument is :) how fun it is to play... Well that's a whole different story!!!! IT'S THE MOST FUN THING EVER!!!!! And I find the tenor to be the best since it can still go to same notes as the Alto with over tones but it can go quite low as well :) I would recommend a Yamaha Ts475!!!! They are very good instruments

I really wanna play it because it's the only instrument that slides and other instruments you have to blow the only way you can blend the sounds is if you fade your blow but with the trombone you can slide it between the c d e f g a b. I'm not playing yet but I want to and I do slot of research

Been playing the trombone for 4 years... It's actually one of the hardest instruments to play according to most musicians. It's the base of the band, and without it, the whole band would be off. Keeps timing, sounds great, has unique features, great timbre, and definitely has a great brassy sound! Is the only instrument with a slide. Can be used in almost any type of music, looks cool, and is used in modern songs!

I will clear this up for you. The keyboard is technically a type of instrument (Piano, Harpsichord, Organ etc..) But the electric keyboard is called this because of its variety of sounds, which links back into the type of instrument. So a Piano is a keyboard, but a keyboard is not neccesarily a piano. Has that cleared things up?

Viola Report Abuse
90 points - added 8 years ago by JARM - 8 comments
Comments:
The reason that the viola doesn't get the respect it deserves is because, unfortunately, cellos can already do the same thing and sound really good doing it. I played the cello for about 10 years and would have friends who told me that they regretted not choosing the cello instead of the viola. The reason being that in a full orchestra piece, the stringed instruments that play the melody of the piece are always the violin or the cello. The viola is forced to take a backseat. It is a true shame as the viola makes beautiful music and I would have been much happier carrying home a viola to practice than the behemoth cello that I strapped to my back everyday after school...
Added 5 months ago by guest, 1 point Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
For anyone who doesn't know what a viola is, it's a lower-note violin. A lot of people, yes, don't know what a viola is but it's a beautiful, warm, and incredible instrument. :)

Ukulele Report Abuse
68 points - added 8 years ago by JARM - 6 comments
Comments:
Ukulele seems to be making a bit of a revival these days, and why not?! It's a versatile instrument, capable of playing a variety of genres. Although I would recommend those that aren't too young start off with a Concert or Tenor for a better sound, but Soprano will have even the youngest muso playing. I prefer Tenor for myself. For a guitarist looking into a Uke, Try a Bass. Or just capo your guitar at the 5th fret and play only the bottom four strings.

The person writing "Boring but obvious" in the header of this instrument should be ashamed! It is a very versatile instrument. The person saying it is boring only shows that he/she is very limited in creativity, and in musical knowledge. It is the most sold instrument worldwide so it should be on number 1 in this list. Sadly it has a bad reputation, but that doesn't say anything about the quality and functionality. Calling it boring is a shame!!

I've been playing for 3 years. It is one of the most complicated fingers I've ever seen. I've played sax, flute, trumpet, tuba, clarinet, oboe, and percussion. But, I have to say, I do love it, it CAN be pretty sounding... but not all the time. #doublereedprobs

There's no doubting - pure beauty of an instrument and can make amazing ranges of sounds all depending on technique and style. Beautiful. It can really have quite a different sound depending on technique which makes it such a cool instrument to play!!!

In my opinion, the tenor sax has a deeper, richer tone than the alto sax.
Added 2 years ago by guest, 0 points Vote + to improve this comment's ranking Vote - to decrease this comment's ranking
Agreed, the tenor's defiantly better! Alto's really good also for all of the Alto players. I would think more people play it though?

Irish whistle/Tin Whistle and Low Whistle Report Abuse
One of the simplest instruments to learn, yet versatile, used in many musical genres. Affordable to start with, but for a more money the quality is out there to be had ( I prefer Colin Goldie Low whistles but there are more makers of quality out there). Under rated as an instrument even in the cheaper start forms. Not as advanced as a recorder, though that is only technically correct, as the sound of an Irish whistle is far superior and more ear pleasing than anything produced by a recorder. They are each their own instrument and must never be confused. It would be a bit like asking an Irishman whereabouts in England does he come from. You're just asking for a punch in the nose.

If you just use your diaphragm to push air out of your body, though your mouth, with your lips formed close together, you can make a sound.
