My useless talent is: give me any instrument and I’ll play _something_. Went through an eBay phase about 10+ years ago and I’d get random instruments then sell them back. Cello for three months, accordian for a year, some weird African flute thing whose name I forgot… it was fun.
Cello hurt my back but I got it to work. [figuring out ‘how bows work’ was strange but once I got the feel for it, I was like, “Oh, that’s it?”]. Sold it to someone at work for his daughter for xmas. I paid $50, sold it for $125. No guilt ’cause it came from China anyway.
