New instrument puzzle
Probably the first non-guitar-related post.
Tell me of an instrument which is in demand in classical ensembles/contemporary bands (like bassists = everyone wants them, but there are too few of them, i.e. big demand, small supply. The reason why bass or drum isn't the answer is ->) AND is portable (portable = playable anywhere, no electricity required, lightweight, small enough to fit a bag, etc).
So far I got (wherever I write 'in demand', it means 'wanted in ensembles')
-Chromatic harmonica (not too much in demand, but very very portable)
-Concert flute (a little more in demand than harmonica perhaps, but not *that* portable)
-Violin (it's got great demand AND supply...so meh. And while it's very much smaller and lighter than a guitar, it's got to be toted in a case, an extra piece of luggage if I happen to need to carry my guitar along with me, which is all the time.)
-Melodica (portable, not in demand)
etc. Nothing perfect so far. Suggest pliz?
