June Music Blogathon - Day 24

A song that I wish I could play on an instrument.

This is quite a difficult one because my lack of any real instrumental skills mean the answer would theoretically be everything. By the same token the answer is also nothing, because I know there is little chance of me playing it anyway, whatever I chose, so I never even think about it. Had the question been about something I wish I could sing, the list would be endless, mainly with operatic arias.And the one skill I wish I had was to jus sit down at a piano and play, just like they do in the films.

Having thought long and hard, I do have a contender. It's a guitar piece and one of the reasons I wish I could play it is because my younger brother could, and that's bloody annoying as anyone with a younger brother can tell you. I do feel I can claim some credit though for his skills as without me he might never have picked up a guitar. And in particular, my one. My electric one. Which one day I came home to find he had traded in to buy himself a 12 string acoustic. Without a by your leave mind you. Based on the fact that he didn't think I used it much so it might as well be used for something useful for him.

So, I would like to play Classical Gas by Mason Williams.

As long as I can play it better than my brother!

  • Thank you!
    Heard this before, obviously, but never knew what it was called.
    Excellent instrumental.
    I shall set out to learn it forthwith.

  • Brennig - So that would be bugger then.

    Masher - I reckon by the end of this you'll probably have your own tv series. lucky you got the .tv domain!
