What Instrument Should I Play?

You Should Play the Harp

You are a sensitive soul, with a great admiration for beauty.
You definitely have what it takes to make beautiful music, but most instruments are too harsh for you.

You are subtle, shy, and even a bit spoiled. You're very picky about most aspects of your life.
It's just your style to play an eccentric, hard to transport instrument like the harp that few people consider.

Overall, you have the relaxed demeanor of a leisurely upper class person, and your music would reflect that.
Your calm yet soulful harp playing would be sure to help people forget their troubles for a while.

Your dominant personality characteristic: your zen-ness

Your secondary personality characteristic: your quiet independence

When I saw this quiz on Blogthings, I thought it would be fun, because just yesterday I was reflecting about Mrs. Big Hairy Woman's post on playing an instrument. I hadn't entertained thoughts of being a harpist though! I always sort of thought the cello would be's kind of sexy. I guess both the harp and the cello are your more unweildy string instruments. Still...cello = sexy and harp = angelic? I don't know. Probably I am not meant to play an instrument at all. Anyway take the quiz for yourself and find out what you would be playing in a perfectly Blogthingy world.

They said I should play a harp too! We can partner up. Kind of like Simon and Garfunkel. :)

You Should Play the Guitar

You're very independent - both in spirit and in the way you learn.
You can teach yourself almost anything, even if it makes your fingers bleed.

You're not really the type to sit patiently through a music lesson - or do things by the book.
It's more your style to master the fundamentals and see where they take you.

Highly creative and a bit eclectic, you need a wide range of music to play.
You could emerge as a sensitive songwriter... or a manic rock star.

Your dominant personality characteristic: being rebellious

Your secondary personality characteristic: tenacity

I don't know, I bet you could make the harp sexy.

Tara: And you can even sing! I will leave that strictly to you ;-p

AlienCG: Rebellious, manic rock star! I like the sound of that, in spite of my spoiled, eccentric personality :-)

Churlita: Maybe Tara and I could create some sort of hot harp lounge act and change the image of harpists everywhere.

I am saying I should play the violin! Years ago my dad bought home a violin from an auction. It had no strings and I loved that thing to death!

the harp? do you carry it around in your back pocket?

laura b. said...

MiniJonB: Is that a disparaging remark about the size of my arse? haha!
You're right though..hadn't even considered the weirdly hip mouth harp...

You Should Play the Accordion

You are eccentric, funky, wacky... definitely one of a kind.
People have trouble putting you in any one particular category. You definitely have your own thing going on.

You are a born entertainer. No wonder you'd be perfect as an one man (or one woman) band.
Your musical influences likely cross all genres - and blend together in a very unusual way.

While you are definitely offbeat, you also enjoy tradition and influences from the past.
It's just your style to take an old fashioned instrument like the accordion and make it uniquely yours.

Your dominant personality characteristic: your total inhibition

Your secondary personality characteristic: your interest in obscure activities and subjects

This is really funny cause this is the most annoying instrument I can think of...

laura b. said...

MrsBHW: That's okay, just bring your accordian along and join the very unusual band that Tara and I are forming :-)
