Instruments of Destruction

Guess what!  Since it is Choose and Defend Wednesday, you get to Choose and Defend!  Oh boy!  Um...did that help?  Let's find out.  Here's the deal this week....I have never learned to play a musical instrument, but I love the idea of it.  Some of you play, some of you sing, but setting that aside, if you were given the chance, which of these two instruments would you Choose to learn to play...

The Piano

The Guitar

Yes, I do sometimes use pictures with cats in my illustrative photos.  I don't think that makes me a Crazy Cat Lady though.  Just saying.  Anyway, getting back to my point...Choose and Defend!  After you are dutiful like that, feel free to provide details about your actual musical talents.  Maybe we can get a band together or something :-)  I'm pretty strong, I think I could be a roadie.  Choose and Defend!

Guitar. So much more portable. Although I have never played and did, in fact, take piano lessons for a bit. But my older son plays both beautifully.

The cats are distracting me from making a decision - Nora the Piano Playing cat is so cute.

Both instruments sound so pretty when properly played, and pros make it look so easy.

Hmm....I choose the piano. We have a piano at the graduation hall, and I'm always tempted to play Chopsticks on it.

I'm going to say the guitar. I really do want to learn, so I can play it on my back porch and annoy the neighbors.

Oooo! Very good one! Difficult for me as I play the piano, but would love to learn to play the guitar. I have a guitar, but don't know how to play it.

It's hard to think of the awesome cool songs I'd like to learn on the piano and at the same time think of the awesome cool stuff you can do with a guitar.

Dang! This is hard. I can't even imagine what the world would be like without both.

Not many know this but I absolutely love fast lyric-less flamenco guitar music.

But then I love the awesome piano work in the soundtracks to the Halo video games. Makes my heart stir.

Dangit! Sorry, I'm stuck. I'll keep listening to my tunes and maybe something will push me off the fence.

Secret: None of my kids have been interested in becoming musical. I would have loved it :-)
One for Guitar.

Tara: haha! Cats can be distracting in any given situation :-D Next time you should give Chop Sticks a try...I bet you could totally pull it off. One for Piano.

Churlita: That would be almost as much fun as provoking them with your evil, evil fire pit! haha! Two for Guitar.

KenV: Oh, I'm so jealous that you play piano! Very cool. Hey, Flamenco music is awesome, I'm with you there. But you really can't decide? Dude. Okay, I'll wait :-)

I choose the piano. Such a wonderful instrument. Not that I don't like guitars ;)
