    I take my Mbira from time to time. Have to sit up in the hammock to play but mostly play outside of the hammock. Most of the time i just listen to nature.

    It is! Both the "Little Martin" and the "Baby Taylor" are great guitars for travel and sound like much bigger models. You won't get a D28 sound or anything but if it gets knocked about you wouldn't freak out. Laguna makes a cheaper smaller guitar but the build quality isn't near the Martin or Taylor.

    My djembe is a mini made by www.everyonesdrumming.com that I got at Bonnaroo this past year. Clips right onto the side of my pack

    May have to look into a native American flute now too!

    I mostly camp in "unimproved" areas, like wilderness, and mostly by myself. I was joking about the saxophones (too heavy to pack anyway).

    I go to listen.

    In a group camp, with lots of people, it might be way different.

    Love playing my mandolin in my hammock. The inspiration that flows is quite incredible.

    I have a bamboo sax that is small enough to play in a hammock. I could play the piano in the hammock but will need some stronger material to get the piano in there.

    Don't know why I don't play when others are around when hiking, cause I do play in public for semi large crowds at the ren fest I work at I did play for a few minutes at the after Thanksgiving trip, but while Don & Scott were getting water. I don't think I did that on purpose, but,,,,,,
    ...yea, but drummers get all the 'chicks'...

    I like to bring one of my ukuleles.

    I have several, but my lightest is less than a pound (15oz) and small enough to fit inside the pack if it's raining (but usually rides on the outside).

    The ukulele is a very versatile instrument. It's more than Tip Toe Through the Tulips, and Hawaiian music. YouTube and many other websites are overflowing with enthusiasts of all ages and musical tastes. All of you string players out there should check one out.


    I could even bring a banjo-ukulele, If I'm feeling twangy.


    P.s. I have a hammock strung up in the back of my work van, and a ukulele behind the drivers seat. . . you know for lunch breaks only

    Yea, I've got a 52 Selmer Alto, don't really want to take that on the trail with me specially as it's been probably 10 years since I played it last so it's official, I don't play anymore.

    I always wanted to play the guitar or the Euk but my knuckles lock up when I hold them over any strings for a while. I do tune up pretty good after some select foods, but I KNOW folks don't want to hear that tune.

    Not downwind anyways.

    Well TMI violation but given a choice of that or enduring the sound of drums in the outdoors...I'll take the beans.
