The greatest musical instrument is actually the human being, but the instrument itself is providing us with its tones as far as we feel something from its vibrations – something that is deeply related with our own organism.
OH Yeah! I read need this sooo bad. My birthday is tomorrow and this would be the best present on the planet.
Fender VI-type short-scale 6 string basses.
Percussion of all kinds
The drums are favorite musical instrument. When I listen to some music if the drums come out just right, that can make a song all by itself.
Tough decision, but I’d have to go with “synthesizer”, since if I could only have one instrument, I’d still be able to record a complete song with one.
I’ve got a tie between the violin and guitar.
I primarily play guitar, but my favourite is the drums. I get to whack out some fills, grooves and beats and chill out to it! Playing drums loud and proud!

Drums are the heartbeat…without it, the fullness of sound is not present
I am opening my own teaching studio April 1st, small, 3 teaching rooms, and I sure would love to have a drumset ! I am a guitar teacher and thus, obviously, am lacking in funds….so it would be a great help. Pick me, pick me !! said the guitar. ha haa
I started on drums and they’ll always be the first love I’ll never get over. I play bass now, but over the years I’ve picked up several instruments. Peter Gabriel once said that anyone wanting to be a musician should start with drums – no matter waht instrument you intend to settle on and master. His feeling was that msicians who start on drums have a firm grasp of the foundation of all music – rythym. According to Peter, if you start on drums, every other instrument you pick up afterward will be much easier to learn. In my own personal experience I find this theory to be absolutely true.
My favourite instrument is my Chet Atkins Country Gentleman but I’d love to learn the drums better since my father was a drummer many years ago…
