I'd give my right arm to play the fiddle.

Couldn't get on with it so took up mandolin which is the same tuning.

I got kicked out the school orchestra for being out of time on the tambourine.

I've still got my old pink oboe which I tried giving to numerous females over the years with varying success

Does the recorder count?...... I learnt it in school.

My embarrassing talent is being able to play the bag pipes. .
I used to be in the church band and play in parades/festivals etc. I even wore a kilt!!!! Not something im very proud of looking back on my childhood.


Me and the mrs were very keen for my eldest daughter to learn an instrument. We were even willing to pay for lessons because she was very forward for a 5 year old. So one day we sat her down and asked her to really think about what instrument she would like to learn and after a long pause and a deep thought process......... she said the triangle! And that put an end to that. She joined rainbows instead which is a beginners brownies

Piano badly, plus was semi pro singer when younger, and did amateur dramatics. My Dad was a muscian all his life and had his own band

I did sing   "Somewhere"  and  "Maria"  in the Redcoat show at Skegness in 1968.
I don't know how I got away with it.

didgeridoo! Been living in Australia for four years and had one before that in England, now I've got a really decent one and have had some lessons, you can get very absorbed in it and there's no fussing with sheet music or scores and the like!

My dad was in a double act with Max Bygraves when they were young (until MB stitched him up) and I learnt to play guitar/piano, although not very well.
