Hehehe, I do. But it's true. Last year, 3 out of 6 of our section made it to All-State Band. None of the other, much larger, sections even made it to auditions.

In my band, it's more like this:
Flutes - huge gossips.
Clarinets - smart, and good musicians.
Saxophones - quiet, but really weird.
French Horn - the biggest b**** you'd ever meet, and horrible at music too.
Trumpets - think they're the best (they're not), and really obnoxious.
Low Brass - inappropriate.
Percussion - stupid.

Okay, well it's too late now. Thanks for making me have to defend my own opinions.

And maybe you do have to possess even a small amount natural talent to even pick up an instrument and play it. I know some people who have tried to play various instruments, but have failed or given up. Maybe, you have that small amount of natural talent, which makes you want to pick up the instrument and play it, and then you develop that talent into a skill, but at the same time, a bigger amount of talent. How would we know that not all musicians were born with natural talent? Have you conducted a medical trial on natural talent? Probably not, and neither have I, so we don't know.

The brick wall analogy here goes both ways. I have asked you questions and you have barely and indirectly answered them. Thanks. My questions are not completely irrelevant to the point that you're trying to make, because if you truly enjoyed making music, you'd consider it a talent too.

Not trying to be arrogant here, but I am considered a talented musician by my teachers and directors. And I really enjoy playing and listening to music, so I believe being able to play a musical instrument a talent. And I don't mean just sitting down at a piano and smashing your face against the keys. I mean, reading music, and playing it well. If I was good at something else, like a sport, I would consider being able to play that sport a talent. It's just what you believe in.

And you didn't just target one sentence in my post. In comment 1360789, you blatantly stated that my post was wrong. Again, this site is about opinions, and according to the votes on this post, many others have this opinion too.

I have a few questions for you.
1. What do you consider as a talent?
2. Do you even play a musical instrument?
2a. If so, what do you play and how long have you played it?
Also, the last time that I looked at the homepage, it said that amirite is a website for OPINIONS only. If it's my opinion, then it's right to me.

My elementary school was the Cavaliers, middle school was the Rebels, and my high school is the Confederates. I guess we're still stick in the civil war era. . .
