For unknown reason, I get itchy to explore, reexplore a new instrument.
Again, can't say why, currently, the Recorder. (Was *very interested in Native American Flute, too!! - 6 hole, of a Pentatonic nature...)
Once I learn a key scale I like, or two, I tend to use it to jam, and/or write.
(Tends to be C, A (relative minor) G, E (relative minor) ... Yes guitar friendly scales, bass, cello, etc.)
(I'm getting the Hohner, Pear Wood Soprano, coming soon, a self-b-day present... And was very interested in the Yamaha Tenor, 304B... Price and Rep... Also, getting a Bach for Recorder book and found a seemly great web site, collating fingering to scale, notation. I am a Pattern driven learner... If see the math pattern in it, learn it, gud'nuff : )
-- again, thoughts?
