So one summer during my teenage years, I decided I wanted to learn the violin and asked my parents to buy one for me. But that didn’t work out so well because I gave up practicing since my self control back then was not nearly as amazing as it is right now, and violin is one of those things that will remind you just how terrible you are every time you touch it unless you devote your life and prove yourself (or also unless, you know, you’re tone deaf by grace of god). It’s still sitting somewhere in my closet and it’s still one of those things I want to learn if one day I suddenly run out of things to do. I also tried the other 3 string instruments in my short one semester stay in strings in high school, personally I really liked them because it took so much force to physically conquer them, because of how small I was and how small my hands were and still are. I liked their sound more than the violin really, since I always liked the powerful feeling of setting the roots of harmony, but they’re not nearly as easy to get my hands on so I don’t think I’ll ever get to play with them again ): that and they’re probably not much fun to play without an accompanist and I’d spend all my time complaining about most instead of playing most likely!
Anyway ground your stance and have some fun (:
