    One instrument I know I don't like very much is the Achordian. As for the other two, I have to think a little.

    Lovemore Nanjaya.

    Violins when scored as Mantovani used to awful, but otherwise OK,
    The digeridoo never appealed (nor did spelling it)
    Soprano sax doesn't do much for me.

    I recall hearing the Clarinet described as "an ill wind that nobody plays good" attributed to Stan Kenton, for me it depends who is playing it and what is being played, as with many other instruments; for example the combination of Einaudi and piano has me reaching for the off button.
    Cheers MIKE.

    It was once said that a gentleman is someone who can play the piano accordian - but doesn't.

    When I started with the Flute my first teacher asked me why I chose the Flute, I still don't know all these years later. I should have stayed with the Clarinet a much more versatile instrument, Obviously 'Stan the Man' had never heard Mozart's Clarinet Concerto or his Clarinet quintet
    I don’t want a signature any more
