My first was a bodhran and the scorn and derision I experienced soon ended that.
My second was guitar but it seems it doesn’t really fit especially if there are other chord instruments playing.
My next was a mandolin and though seemingly acceptable it was totally inaudible so that ended that.
Then Octave Mando….same problem!
My third was a Tenor Banjo…see point one but even worse!
My next was a bouzouki and I was back to point 2 with the added criticism "well it’s not really ITM is it!"
I give up. I’m going back to playing in rock bands!
Oh….and I’m also opening a shop to sell all the rear I bought!
