Also I have been toying with the idea of getting a new keyboard, so I can link it up to Garage Band on my Mac and create music to accompany my videos. Unfortunately I don't have the money at the moment, because I also want an I-Pad Mini and there are a few other "things" on the list that would come before a keyboard.
I missed celebrating May 20 - "Be a millionaire Day" which was also "National Pick Strawberries Day" - not sure that they're related :) If I remember tomorrow, I can celebrate "Lucky Penny Day."
Today is also my sister's birthday. She owns a small harp, as her musical instrument. Fortunately no one in the family plays the drums, trumpet, or tuba etc. However, I have always liked "the spoons." I thought that they ought to be sterling for the best sound, but given that they are an instrument of the poor, they were probably made of tin.
Yes, I think it would be much more frugal and interesting to have people "find" musical instruments or create music from things not necessarily designed to be musical. I remember holding flat blades of grass between my thumbs and blowing on them trying to get a sound. Reeds create very haunting music. Please add any "found" instruments that you know of.
The picture is my grandfather's harmonica. He always played "Camptown Races."
Have a musical day!!
