Put Down the Tambourine.

I'm the black sheep of my family. Well, in the context of this anecdote, the tone-deaf one. A bunch of my family and friends were hanging out the other day, and the good majority were in the mood to jam. My little brother was trying to get me to pick up one of the instruments in the house, assuring me that it was "in the blood." Besides, there were a few people there that were picking things up, despite being inexperienced at the instruments, and substantially kicking ass . Inexperienced did not mean talentless, and I know which acts not to follow. :D Besides, I'm more of a visual person. Once they get their thing going, I'm thinking more along the lines of stage design or management. It's been a while since I've busted out the ol' scarf and beret.

So I got bored and decided to make a genre band. To tell you the truth, I'm only about 65% satisfied with the line-up. What do you guys think? Who would you cut/change/add in your genre band?

Mainstream Fiction- Vocals.
Romance- Keyboard.
Horror- Runs the lighting.
Science Fiction- Synthesizer.
Fantasy- Lute.
Action/Adventure- Guitar.
Comedy- Kazoo.
Mystery- Horns.
Western- Harmonica.
War- Drums.


  1. Great lineup. I think I would give romance strings. LOL Kazoo. I used to go see a band once upon an era that passed out kazoos at the door so everyone could play along with the band.
