I just ordered a pan flute and will attempt to learn how to play it. I've watched all the videos on how to play one and hope it's easier than it looks. :lol:  I'm thinking my face will look like this when I first start. :blush:   I'm hoping the fact my last name starts with the same letter as Zamfir will help. :rolleyes:  Good thing I quit smoking!  I ordered one from Brad White Flute Shop.  It's a tenor flute.  Here's the link if anyone is interested.

Well, you have defined me a bit, Clover, I DO like the Big Booms. Of artillery, fireworks, etc. My job in the Army was repairing M1A1 and M1A2 tanks. I never missed a chance to go out with them to the range. Ostensibly it was in the capacity of QA/QC , but it was, for me, a chance to stand alongside a tank when they fire.  They never let me fire the cannon but I would stand alongside it and when that 120 mm 'gun' goes off, the resulting boom rattles your bones for an instant. you feel it in your sternum. And of course, during the Gulf War, I was in the right spots to watch the  A-10's roll in and hit the Iraqis. When those birds fire, it's not a boom so much as a loud extended fart. At night it was incredible. Yup, I like booms. Wierd for me, a confirmed bird watcher, when I don't want to hear anything louder than a peep.

Ft Hood, by the way, rocks.

 I carry a set of electronic drums and a small amplifier.    Can use with just headphones, not to disturb anyone in the campgrounds.

Several years ago I was at a Casita rally at Bullard Beach SP in Bandon, OR. A gentleman brought his ukelele to the gettogether and began to play. I was feeling, oh, no. Please. Not the ukelele.

I never cared for the ukelele, mostly because of the likes of Tiny Tim, who was just too freaking wierd.

But this man played it like it's supposed to be played, I suppose, and had a decent voice to go with it...and that made all the difference.
