I am happy to see that I am not the only one that is "musically inclined and declined" at the same time.
Over the years I have collected a guitar, a Wald-Zither,a ceremonial horn(5' long),
another smaller Zither (I think)
IT'S A MANDOLIN, an electronic keyboard, bongo drums, and mouth organs.
Even though I have nearly perfect pitch, I can't play any of them well.
And when I try, everyone leaves the room.
Seems like my musical neurons will not reach my fingertips, nor will they interpret music on paper into a workable asset.
For all my life I have tried, but it won't work. I guess there has to be a touch of artist in ones genes; I can't find mine.
Oh well, I guess I'll stick with my scientific genes and be happy.
