Along the Playing of Instruments While Riding Your Trainer...

Here's how I spent my night.


This is a lot harder than it looks. It's really hard to sing while riding. Physically and in lack of breath.

Hmm. Suddenly I have a mental picture of a group of people playing Rock Band, but each player is riding a bike on a trainer. Awesome.

How was it? I'd like to try it sometime, but I haven't able to find it in my neighborhood.

You were out of breath playing the guitar, and you want to play the flute?! Good luck with that!

I was out of breath projecting my voice. I bet it takes about the same breath power to play a flute.

Don't know, it's still in the racks.
PM me and address and I'll send it to y'all.
I've had a rough evening, it'll feel good to commit a kindness.

If you succeed, I vote the next instrument to be a tuba or a double bass.

Awesome!

Now to work out a drumset solution. I guess I could put a pad on a music stand to practice rudiments.

Whoa, did you not see Grumpy's tuba one? That was the inspiration.

How about a mandolin?

How about a hand drum that you could strap around your neck?

I think I saw the post at work, so I wasn't able to watch it. Then I forgot where it was.

In any case, since it's been done, time to move along.

That would depress me out that you could play it on a trailer and still be a way better mando player than me.

I got someone to play the spoons who said that exact same thing the other night. I reckon you could pull it off, as well.

I could never do that. I crash from time to time just grabbing the water bottle out of the cage. Then again, I have rollers.

Ha! You're assuming that I can play the mando as well as I play guitar. I can't.

If you can play it an eighth of how you play the guitar, you can play better than me...

Heh. I've found that the rollers are more dangerous than actually riding on the road, during rush hour, and riding the wrong way.
