Show us your favorite electronic gadget.
My favourite gadget would have to be this sucker here. The Apple iPhone. It's so shiny… 🙂
Show us an instrument you know how to play.
I can play a few:
I learned to play the Piano until about grade 4, then just played it for personal enjoyment. I can usually eventually nut out the pieces that I want to play. In grade 6 I played Keyboard for the Burnie Learners Band when our regular pianist was not available. I kept playing that until I left the band in grade 6. I can still play when I feel so inclined, but not as well as I used to. No more sight-reading for me.
I was in a band called EMUsicians, it was for the best musicians in the NorthWest in grades 5 and 6. I can't remember what I played for the audition, I suspect it was the Recorder though.
This is the first instrument that I officially learned. I started playing in grade one or so when I met my best friend throughout primary school, Tim. He played it, and was really good. I learned to play quite proficiently and was playing flute music on the recorder with the Burnie Learners Band. (This is quite a feat, by the way, the finger-work for high notes in rapid succession is nasty) I left the recorder behind after playing the trumpet with EMUsicians in grade 5.
Yep! I can play Madonna like a recorder!
Actually, no. I sing, and this is probably the best picture I can find of that.
When I went to church I was typically called upon out of the "choir" of 5-8 to sing solos.
I've left the guitar till last because I can't play it very well at all, and never did play it very well at all. I can get a few songs happening on it at least. I don't have one any more, so I never got around to perfecting it.
