I call bullcrap! I've seen you play a dozen instruments-and now a best selling author. I got to see you play the trumpet to be convinced LOL. Just kidding Swiss but you do have a lot of talent man. I feel better you can't play everything-I was getting envious.Trumpet - I was able to produce a total of two shaky notes. The remaining two hundred sounds were barely audible or just terrible. I only tried it once but I developed a lot of respect for trumpet players that day. The learning curve feels like a brick wall in the beginning.
My sentiments 100%I had a similar experience when I tried to learn acoustic guitar. Several years later, a former band member lived with me for a year, and I tried to play his electric guitar (not plugged into an amp) and couldn't believe how much easier it was than an acoustic.
For a month I tried to play the Chapman Stick. I may try again, but it is not as easy as I thought it would be.
I bought a 88 keys living room piano a couple of years ago.
I already sucked on the drums trying to learn jazz.. now with the piano I could not even learn children's songs, I got rid of it for the same price. Learning jazz on the drum AND on the piano was simply a dumb idea. I prefer to suck less at only 1 thing. ?
So now I focus all my energy only on the drums.
I have has a TON of really good piano players say to me:" man, I wish I could drum. It takes sooo much coordination". And I am thinking: " 4 limbs....10 fingers....nah. Piano is much harder...much more coordination"
I took piano for 10 years and hated every minute of it...t'was hard!!!
