My #1 instrument is my violin, because this is the instrument I've played the longest and most skillfully and it is the only instrument I currently play in public. I've posted a picture of myself with my violin before, but below is a photo of the two of us that I like even better.

Until around 1 month ago, the instrument I really *loved* playing the most for myself and by myself was my electric guitar.

However, my newest musical confession is that my heart has been stolen away by MY NEW CELLO!!!!!!!!!! THE BEST INSTRUMENT IN THE WORLD!

I used to think I was a violin player. Then I thought the electric guitar was my favorite instrument and captured the essence of who I am the best. Now I realize I am really most fundamentally a cello player. I had no idea, until I finally got one.

I'm still just learning to play the cello, but I love everything about the instrument even though we've only been together a little over a month.

I love how a cello cradles up against you and vibrates when you play it. I love how you can feel the vibrations going into your sternum, against which the cello rests. I love how you can feel the cello vibrating against your knees as well, as you hold the cello gently between them so that when you move, the cello moves with you. I love the deep, warm notes you draw out of it. Playing the cello is like giving someone you love a warm embrace. You can feel the instrument responding physically...and not just through the sound it produces. The cello is just a delight to play. Can you tell that I like my cello?

My poor violin is now playing second fiddle, but here it is:

What a beautiful violin! I just love instruments that look like they've been played well for many years. The dress is nice too

Guitar is my main instrument and my main guitar would be this one:



(You can glimpse the flute as well, resting on the notestand, but it's not much to see after all)


And this would be my second favourite one:




And here's my by far coolest instrument. A 1978 Yamaha CS5 analogue synthesizer:

I'm no Ian Anderson for sure, but I think I'm getting a decent use of it.

You decide.
