Splitting time between instruments…
Unless you’re retired, independently wealthy, or an insomniac, there’s going to be some limit to the amount of time you can spend playing the music.
I’ve played the whistle for a few years, but recently got a flute. Now I have to struggle with how to balance my time between the two. How do other multiple instrument owners out there face the challenge? Do you balance them evenly? Work on different tunes for different instruments? Do you find that one becomes your dominant instrument and the other just an afterthought or side project?
I used to play guitar somewhat regularly, and that thing hasn’t been out of it’s case since I started getting into ITM a few years back. I think the whistle and flute combo has better potential for one instrument to complement the other, but there are enough differences that I’m interested to see how the relationship will shake out.
Interested in your thoughts.
