I had been playing Piano (learning on my own through youtube and books) once a while for over 2 years now and I would call myself above novice. I can't read sheet music but I have a not bad ear. However, I was diagnosed with a problem and can't really play Piano for long so I was dropping it for a wind instrument primarily : Recorder, Harmonica and Bamboo flute. I like all three and my disorder won't interfere with me playing any of these three.
My needs are basically cheap instrument, light and something I can learn on my own.
Ideally, I'd also like one or more of the following:
- Not too difficult/Simple to pick up and play. No complicated techniques to learn.
- Good online resources
I mostly like covering the vocal parts of popular songs to play at parties etc. like Coldplay.
