I suck musically... but I think I just might try it.

Now, I need to figure out an appropriate instrument.

The lyre good sir.

I have been contemplating buying a Chinese hulusi flute from Ebay. It has drones and sounds a little like a bagpipe but plays like a flute.

Well, in my mind a bard needst to have some musical skill. It may be a stereotype, it may be inaccurate, but it is my personal opinion. It really comes down to a matter of presentation if nothing else.

Fortunately, skill can be taught. Because I am poor, it is equally encouraging that skill with a musical instrument can be self-taught. Well, self-taught assuming I can access the internet! ;-P

I'm open to anything really. I have a horn already, and the flute interests me. But, then, a banjo might work out, also.

Depending on the instrument, I could possibly design a foam weapon based on it's shape - which might be kinda kewl on the field.

Kewl. If you still know how to play, then I'll know who to go to if I have any difficulty. I have no idea, but I presume the various kinds of flutes and lutes, and such function more or less the same.

Its only important that an artist remember this...

If you can do that, remember that, then you are fine. ;-)

I bought the Hulusi flute on Ebay. Its on its way from China as we speak. Maybe you can play it Kitty.











This girl ordered the same bakelite instrument I did.
