Dude, you're still "that guy" - but now it's with a uke...nobody wants to hear that, either!
Is that code for something, Bent?
Nope... nothing more relaxing after a long hike than taking off the old backpack and somebody making the oh so good sounds of playing the flute! I frequently doze after just a few minutes of it.
Nope. I play in private to myself. My wife and kids are oblivious to it, so can't say I've got that T-shirt.
Another good option is one of the new carbon fiber travel guitars made by Klos. They are a lot more resistant to damage/warping and so a very minimal gig bag would probably be all that is needed for it. You can also remove the neck for more compact packing.
But a melodeon would be fun:
This is tempting, and the way that I was originally leaning. Especially if one friend, who is a great clawhammer banjo player, comes along. The sound of fiddle and clawhammer banjo together is really special.
I may need to have 2 options: fiddle for when my banjo player friend comes along and brings his banjo, and tin whistle for other trips.
Those look interesting, but they are way out of my price range for a beater instrument to take backpacking. Especially when I already have plenty of tin whistles and harmonicas.
Yep I bought this specifically for camping. My Alpaca. I'm selling it if you want it... lol
The kickstarter had ads with them paddling a canoe with it...
Is that a drink holder in the left bout?
Ha, I'll try it and let you know... lol. Actually looking at it in this pic, it kind of reminds me of a Picasso head!
Now, you've really got me not knowing, what this conversation is about.
Hugh Tracey Kalimba
That's hideous. I love it.
How about Djembe? For those impromptu drum circles on the trail...
In the early 80s I had a beat up old Gibson LG (Little Guitar?) that would get strapped on to my external frame pack,
Same guitar I kept hanging in the chemical supply closet of my classroom. The strings did not last long.
