the suzuki q chord (omnichord) cult...

i got the most amazing early xmas gift from the husband last night! an omnichord (now known as a suzuki q chord.) i don't have my own photos to post of it yet, so i'll grab some from the internet.

there's a real "cult" around this instrument. david bowie plays one. apparently a lot of old people like them, and they are popular with church groups.

as someone described it on "Think of the Q-Chord as a digital autoharp that never goes out of tune, plays 84 chords instead of 21, includes a built drum machine and has a midi output pickup, and you will be pretty close to the mark."

i was able to take it out of the box and play some really weird music within minutes. expect lots of youtube videos featuring this instrument shortly!!!

as an official oldster(soon to be 40) you can play at your next church get together...but can you actually play it?
