30 Songs in 30 Days: day 26 – a song that you can play on an instrument

I don’t play any instruments. I have, at various times in my life, taken lessons to play violin, drums, and piano. I have owned, at various times in my life, a violin, a drum kit, a piano, an electric bass, a synthesizer keyboard, and miscellaneous other instruments (e.g., harmonicas). I never learned to read music fluently (though, like Hebrew, I can puzzle it out slowly), and I stand in awe of people who can look at a piece of written music and hum it or sing it or play it.

So the selection for this day of the meme should be, technically, “not applicable.”

But in high school, I did take some time to learn how to play two things on the piano. From some source or another, I had the music for both, and I painstakingly and slowly picked my way through the notes and taught myself how to play both of these tunes.


I would love to be able to play an instrument, but I waver between bass guitar, drums, and fuck it, I don’t have the time or energy to learn. Guess which one wins out every single time?
