Fedora Tier: Uukes, Ocarina, Banjo, Mandolin, Band Instruments

I have, once in boyscouts.

Ukuleles are pretty common, hardly consider that Fedora tier.

If you actually try to be that guy like everyone and their brother who's been to hawaii playing the uke, you'll look like a total faggot. If you play the banjo or mandolin you're Mumford and sons tier.

If one stumbled upon an elf in the woods playing the erhu, they would be quite delighted.

It could be the fucking kazoo, if one stumbled upon an elf playing anything, they would be quite delighted. Not to mention you're picking small subsets of those instrument player bases and projecting onto the whole.
>>
>>675692
Forgot to mention the melodica, concertina, and slide whistle. If I saw someone playing the banjo in the back country I would murder them.
>>
the erhu is a magical instrument to my ears. its sadness and solitude echos with my soul. If you're alone in the woods it shouldnt really matter what instrument you're jamming on. If you wanna hike a ukelele banjo into the woods and pluck dulcet melodies to the wilderness, do ya thing.

Dude fucking tin whistles. They weigh less than an ounce, Costs like 15$ and are fucking fun to play when chilling by the fire.
They've also got dat celtic sound once you get good. I always have one strapped to my pack. Plus if you run into somebody with a guitar it becomes god tier.

I like the jaw harp. It's small. Light and relatively easy to use.

Saxophone is the best instrument

grand piano is also acceptable

Hmm I may get a native flute now. That'd be awesome to just sit by the fire and jam out like the injuns

Second this

Sometimes I will bring the bongos to bonfires and stuff. They don't weigh too much. And a cheap set made of plywood would be even lighter.

If you're going to bother learning the flute, learn to play the pan flute. It's definitely an awesome instrument, and you can sound like Zamfir playing the Lonely Shepherd.

not to sound mean. thats not waht i was expecting. i had a good laugh about it though
>>
>>676172
Yeah, I definitely think so too , that why I reccomended it. The pan flute is the instrument you hear in haunting traditional music from the Andes of Chile and Peru. Of all the /out/ based instruments that anyone could learn, this is the one that I think would be worth the time putting in.

This is my favorite flute song. Ironically it's written by the comedian Tom Mabe:

that sounds like a recorder. probably plastic too.
>>
>>676279
It's an original clarke tin whistle with a wooden fipple. The way I have it modified makes the middle register a little crackly but the lower a lot smoother. It's a lot less metallic sounding than your typical penny whistle.

Don't think you really can do much with yours except tune it by boiling the fipple and sliding it forwards and backwards to tune it. The clarke is designed differently as you'll see. It's tapered instead of straight like yours, that also affects tone.

The ramp when it comes from the factory is a harsh V shape. I straightened mine flat and then leveled the rap with the end of the wooden part of the fipple. Pic related

Kind of skip back and forth until you hear the tone differences between the sweetone and original. Consider that both models are tapered. Time for an upgrade anon.

I somewhat know the feel anon. I've played guitar for almost 15 years and I don't know any songs. People always hand me a guitar around a fire or some other horseshit backyard party and start spouting requests. I don't know a single fucking song. I record shit, jam with people, and write my own stuff. I still never learned anything, but nobody understands why I don't know anything... neither do it desu
>>
>>676807
Yeah I'm kinda that way. I used to play piano but hated it so I swore id never learn sheet music again so I play the ocarina by ear but I don't take requests really. I just play. Nothing better Inna desert then a hammock, a flask of bourbon and an ocarina.
