I always wanted to play a double bassoon.

How hard could it be?

what sort of professional prospects lie in wait as the greatest double bassoon player of the century which I'm no doubt slated to become if I put 110% into it?

Played alto and tenor sax. All I know is that the double-reed instruments like oboe and bassoon are a bastard to learn. You can get scholarships if you're good.

Played clarinet in highschool. Still have it but haven't played in so long that all of the cork has disintegrated. Thinking of selling it and buying a trumpet, oboe, or duduk.

I saw one of these at a garage sale like 25 years ago. Regret not buying.

Played alto and tenor in high school. I was really good for a hs player.. Really regret not playing and losing the skill, but where the fuck am I going to play a saxophone?
My dad randomly bought an old soprano sax that he though was a clarinet at a flea market and gave to me. Then when I moved and stored some shit at the house it disappeared.

Really wish I would have played drums in band as I think I would still play. I picked it up a little in high school but never got good. Learned guitar at 13 and still play.
