I is for instruments you play: ok need to take the emphasis of you play and change it too have played - recorder in school do a mean hot cross buns and mary had a little lamb - then tried the guitar in highschool couldn't get the brain to work on the different hands at the same time - and then dabbled on the piano in my early 20s so can play a few bits but not much - but have a pianothat'ss coming to my house as soon as the reno's are finished sooner if my mum has a say in it.
