Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Viola. I've always been an odd ball and didn't want something as normal as violin.

Yes, a woodwind. Clarinet, to be exact.

Though lately I've been having this random urge to learn how to play the harp.

No, but I wish that I had. I would love to know how to play the piano, harpsichord, or any of the stringed instruments violin through bass. But I don't, and I don't have the time to learn now..

Clarinet here. . . (also piano) later guitar.

What's the point of a signature? Everyone can see who wrote this, over there, to the left.

Piano and clarinet. Clarinet was only 2 years. Piano was...6-7 years? Doubt I could play either of them anymore.

When I was very young I wanted to play the sax. Not knowing what it was called I asked my parents. Guess they did not know either, because they told me it was a trombone. Was I surprised when they gave it to me in school. Needless to say I did not practice or care about it. I was about 7 or 8.
