Which are the best musical instruments?
In 2016, The National Trust published a book, The Top 100 Music Instruments, that examined all the instruments that are known to have played on our music.
It included instruments that were considered to be instrumental, such as flutes, mandolin, clarinet, and saxophone.
But it also included non-instrument instruments, such the piano and saxophonist, that were regarded as “piano-like”.
The new book has included a number of instruments that have never been recorded as being “pianist-like”, including a flute, a flugelhorn, a banjo, a cello, and a violin.
The book also lists instruments that may not have been played as a musical instrument in the past but are now “pioneering”, including guitars, mandolins, drums, tubas, flutes and flute-playing lutes.
The instrument category of the new book also includes instruments that can be played as “music instruments” by people who are not musicians.
There are also a number instruments that don’t fit the traditional definition of a musical Instrument, such an acoustic guitar, an electric guitar, a violin and a piano.
But the best instruments in the new list are “songs” which are used as a means of communication, for example, singing, playing or humming.
Among the songs in the Top 100 are the BBC Radio 1 Singers, who sang the song ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ in 2010.
They were the first singing group to be recognised by The National Council for the Arts as having “possessed a musical style and a distinctively Christian tone”.
A selection of the songs by the Singers includes ‘I’m a Rockstar’, by The Beatles, ‘You Are The Best Thing I Ever Saw’, by the Eagles and ‘We Can Dance’, by Queen.
