Washboard Player, Asheville, NC - 2014
(Click on photo to enlarge.)
One regret I have is that I never learned to play a musical instrument when I was younger. Yeah, I know, it's never too late to learn something new, but it's more of a time thing now. I saw this young woman playing a washboard as part of a quartet in Asheville last week, and I thought, "That's one instrument I think I could become competent on comparatively quickly." The only drawback is that if I got really good, at some point I'd want the band to let me cut loose with a solo. Can you solo on a washboard? Probably not.
