Maybe your favorite activity is playing your guitar around the campfire, or perhaps you play music gigs around the country. Maybe you like to annoy your husband with your accordion or maybe the grandkid’s left their kazoo behind and you haven’t stopped playing it…
Whatever the case, do you bring a musical instrument with you on your RV trips? If so, will you share with us what instrument it is and if you play it professionally or just for fun? We want to know!
Always have these with me, banjo, flat top guitar, harmonica and accordion. I Always leave the techno-crap at home. Including the TV. Also, keep my HF ham gear ever with me.
I knew a guy who took an upright piano with him deep into the desert near Death Valley, in a small pickup truck. He didn’t have any camping equipment or much food but he got by. It was quite a nice show really.
Native American flutes
I grew up in a family who played Bluegrass Gospel mainly. I play guitar and mandolin, but mostly 5-string banjo and am fortunate to have a Gibson Mastertone Earl Scruggs Limited Edition serial number 33 out of 50 (so I was told) made. My older banjo travels with me though and I only get it out to play when boondocking alone or to jam with others upon invitation.
Hope to see you on the trail someday.
I checked no because the only thing I could ever pick or blow was my nose!! LOL
Do canned beans qualify?
😆 Yes, I think so, Gary. Have a great, odor-free, day. 😀 –Diane at RVtravel.com
Played the Sousaphone (tuba) for many years. No room to carry it. Not enough money to pay for one.
And there are many I wish wouldn’t for they think it sounds great but it’s more like the chipmunks that were being strangled. It’s as bad as bad campfire smoke or loud laughing late at night. Keep it at home, your family enjoys it more than I.
Being the lazy sod that I am, I keep a tin whistle and a soprano recorder in the rig but I haven’t tried playing them in years. I really should go through the motor home and clear it out.
Always! My voice! LOL
I said, “sometimes,” but actually only did it a few times 5 years ago. I do not do it any longer. It was a guitar. I still have it, 🙂 can’t play it, 🙁 and don’t travel with it.
I checked “Yes, almost always” but, since I live full-time in my motorhome, I always have my instruments with me (piano keyboard, bass guitar and 3 Native American style flutes).
Yes. In fact, I have 9 that I carry plus an amplifier. I play in groups, orchestras, jams and by myself as well. 40′ Newmar Mountain Aire Diesel Pusher, 20 years old gives me the room for a lot of things.
Husband always brings a guitar which he mostly plays for his own enjoyment. Keeps up on lessons with teacher back home via video calls x week unless no internet available.
Does a “butt trumpet” count?
Are you talking about what I think you mean? Mine is “bean” fired.
Yes, my voice. Love to sing!
The Princess say’s I can’t even hold a Note. I can Whistle!!
Sends Her batty!!
I can’t carry a tune in a bucket! Like that ol’ 1984 country song by The Kendalls says “Thank God for the Radio”!
I totally agree since I don’t have a musical bone in my body!!
could you be my twin? My children cried child abuse when I attempted to sing to them when they were young…
Only thing i can play is my steering wheel drum
Always have a musical instrument with me on travels. Unfortunately I can`t play any instruments except my radio which is the one I carry.
Does Pandora and small Blue tooth speaker count?
