I Try To Make Music

I am not very talented when it comes to music. As every little child I learned how to play the recorder, I had two years of guitar lessons and I have always been in at least one choir. Still, I don't have much of musical talent. The only thing I can play on the guitar is the intro of Come As You Are by Nirvana and that really says something.
Anyway, I always wanted to be able to play an instrument. Something that is fun, cheap and easy to learn. Therefore, I bought a ukulele.

Amanda Palmer inspired me to simply go for it and try to learn, because as she stated in her amazing Ukulele Anthem: "They're only 19,95$, that isn't lots of money."

So here we go. This is Sebastian. He comes from Ebay, has the colours of Loki and I love him, thus I put glitter on him. I can play happy Birthday, Radiohead's Creep and I am working on King Of The Road and Come Up And See Me (Make Me Smile) at the moment!

Do you play any instruments? Which ones would you like to learn? Talk to me =D
Have a great day,
The Countess


  1. I'm in the same boat as you actually. A few years of piano under my belt, but my musical talent is negligible. However, I was recently reunited with my mandolin- a Christmas present from years past- so I hope to learn to play that soon.

    1. A mandolin, wow! That is one great instrument, you should play it again!

  2. That's so cute! Love to Sebastian!

    I have played piano since I as six and I'm pretty bad at it even though I love it and even a thought of grand pianos will make me drool. I would also love to play cello because that's the second most beautiful instrument in my eyes. And it's sound is so pleasing..! One day I will, definitely, own a cello, and drive everyone crazy by trying to learn to play it xD.

    1. Wow, playing the piano is so cool, it's just such an elegant instrument from my point of view and even easy songs sound great with very little effort which is nice :)
      Cellos are wonderful, aren't they? I love their sound so much, that deep, dark and somehow big sound range, god, perfect! Very different from Sebastian, I love him anyway though =D

  3. I have never seen such a pretty design on an ukulele! O.O stunning!
    I play the flute but I have always wanted to play the piano and violin too..maybe someday.. :D
