I play the flute. ^_^
I have been playing it for... roughly 3,5 years, I think, but I´m only now starting to get the hang of it. I do like it a bit, though; It sort of brings me to a different mental state.

It takes a long time to get the hang of the flute, definitely. Although it depends on how much you practice.

My school had a recital on Thrursday night. I played a blues song and Inspector Gadget theme. Don't ask. There was a girl from my class who played the flute. It sounded ok, but the notes weren't very clear. It was like she needed to clean her flute or something. Do all flutes sound slightly muffled?

Definitely not, lol.

Played properly, the flute should sound clear, high and light. It sounds like this girl is placing her embouchure incorrectly; if it's too far left or right, or if it's directed away from the mouthpiece instead of into it, then the air's isn't flowing into the flute properly. That's why it sounds muffled.

Or it could be that she's nervous and her breathing is shallow. That could be it too :)

I play finger-style guitar. Basically guitar playing without a pick. :) It's kind of hard but sounds beautiful. Sungha Jung is my inspiration. :>

Apparently I'm supposed to be learning piano but I can't play to save my life :D Embarassing in a family of people that are like: "Look, I can play Hedwig's Theme without the sheet music" and "Mom, where's the sheet music to The Sound of Music? I'm bored."
