I like the tiny violin the Commission brings out every time it needs money.

A trombone with a string tied to it.

I am a fan of the upright bass.

Also, I enjoy good acoustic guitar, probably partly because I've become acquainted with a man named Jason Dennie.

Either dulcimer or your mom's G-string. Pick one.

I have a CD of the Belfast Harp Ensemble along with The Chieftans. It has some awesome musical renditions. I love it, in fact I think that the stringed instruments are my favourites. So many good ones mentioned today. Hammered dulcimer is particularily beautiful. My husband, being Ukrainian, we purchased an old record by a Ukrainian Bandura orchestra. I love it.

Bob Bowman is out of control on that bass.

In a good way, right? I have known grinnin' Bob for many many years. Love his style.

How about a mountain dulcimer? Anybody heard one of those? I know someone who has an electric mountain dulcimer and it definitely isn't a guitar!
