Frustrated and still needing to choose an instrument, I angrily threw up my hands and said I could play… the violin, or whatever, Y'know, the orange wood box that sounds kinda cool. My parents tried to persuade me out of it (they knew a bad violin player sounds awful) ("If you HAVE to play a string instrument… about the viola instead?") but I could actually make a sound come out of the violin and I stuck with it. I've been playing now for 6+ years. Once you go violin. you can't go back (2/2)
petition to call flutes “silver tubes” and violins “cool orange boxes.”
I was actually supposed to play the flute! My mom decided that because my brother and I were so good at whistling (it's the only talent I have lmao), she'd have us play the clarinet and the flute, respectively. We went to the music shop to browse n rent the instruments, and… while my bro fit perfectly w/ the clarinet, I couldn't make a single sound come out of that frickign silver tube. Or the clarinet. (1/2)
(gonna comment after part 2)
Hey Carp, do you know any classical pieces with titles or lyrics involving rabbits or hares? Honestly, anything between the years 1200 and 1900'll do. Instrument combo's don't matter. Fuck me up.
honestly the only thing i can think of is Peter (rabbit) and the Wolf
Is it bad that I only know how some classical songs sound is because of barbie movies?
