Hey guys so I'm just looking for some advice as someone who is completely new to playing an instrument. I've been wanting to try learning an instrument for a while and I've been interested particularly in brass and woodwind instruments. I know learning them can be quite hard and time consuming but if I really enjoy it I can spend 1-2 hours most days practicing. The main instrument I've been looking at, the oboe, I've read and been told is one of the hardest instruments and should not be a hobby instrument. I would like to be able to play beginner music within a year or so, should I even bother with the oboe? Do instruments like the flute and trumpet have easier learning curves? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
The guys are very enthusiastic and complimentary about Bill and his playing and writing and both offer their respective top 10 favourite Be Bop tracks. It's probably not one of the most fluent presentations, but I think their love for Bill's musicianship is definitely genuine, and it's worth a watch...and it's nice to see Bill continue to get increasing exposure, with genuine fans like this, especially Pete Pardo, showing their respect and love for Bill and 'spreading the word'..no matter how late, it's bound to pick up new fans and to be fair, Bill's prolific work as a solo artist after the bright lights of BBD, does get mentioned....and, no 'Ships in the Night'!😉 I also think it's nice and definitely worthwhile cataloguing all such Bill related things, here on the forum.
