Driving home tonight Radio 2 in the UK were discussing guitar riffs and what we all need to play.
I’m interested in two answers here:
Musicians: What do you play and what inspired you to pick it up?
Non-musicians: if my magic wand could give you great musical skill, it can’t by the way, what do you wish you could play both as an instrument and as a piece of music?
My entry to the guitar was Deep Purple “Smoke on The Water” when I was shown you can main riff with one finger on the middle two strings. From there I progressed to ‘Stairway’ though I now play mainly folk and have added Tenor Banjo, Ukulele and Mandolin to my regularly played instruments.
