I took piano lessons for years and can noodle but gave it up enough to realize that I'm stuck with CG forever.
Ah, the oboe, what a marvelous instrument, but at least as difficult as the guitar. But such a joy to listen to. Preferably Mozart oboe concerto in C. TMHO one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever composed.
