John Marsden Writing Topic #465

What particular skill do you most lack? How do you feel about it?**

Being able to play a musical instrument. Musical instruments have always fascinated me and I tried learning them as a kid–triangle, castanets, glockenspiel, guitar, keyboard and organ–but I got bored because I wasn’t having lessons and I wasn’t in a band. For the last couple of year, I’ve been considering learning how to play a ukulele but I have been afraid to pursue it due to my history of buying musical instruments and getting bored with them.

I would have liked to have been in a band, even an ensemble band.
