So tempting to insert an accordion joke here ..

Do you have trouble with or concerns about salt air oxidizing the reeds or doing other harm to your instruments?

I can hear the sea shanties already. Although it is said that the definition of good taste is knowing how to play a squeezebox and refraining from doing so.

Then again, I'm a guitarist and hang around with way too many cynical musicians. If you enjoy it, that's all that matters.

Hubby has a clarinet that he plays aboard the boat. He really enjoys it. He also uses our computer to have play alongs with midi and mp3 files.
