Trivial Pursuit

A trivia question:

I play five different instruments (not at the same time!).
They are piano, organ, flute, oboe, and trombone.
What do these five instruments have in common besides the fact that they are all musical instruments?
Leave your guesses in the comments.

I'll post the answer in a few days.

They are all played by Trueself :)

Hmm, good thought, and true, but not what I was going for. There's something else about the instruments themselves that they have in common.

What are 5 instruments that I cannot play?

(Reminds me of the Cheers episode where Cliff is on Jeopardy - Who are 3 people who have never been in my kitchen? Just ignore me if you have no idea what I am talking about!)

Hi TS, something about sharps and flats, or maybe range of pitch?

trueself said...

I love your answer, but still not quite what I was looking for.

Getting close, maybe

You can't play them left-handed?

They all play at concert pitch. (all are "in C")

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding!

We have a winner! I knew Mia would get this one. Mia, I'm glad you let others try first. I've enjoyed the responses.

And now, Mia, to tell you what you've won let me turn it over to our announcer.

Mia has won the satisfaction of knowing that she is indeed in the right career since she knows her musical instruments!

Thanks everybody for playing, and tune in next time when I come up with some other inane question to puzzle you puzzlers.

That would have been my first guess, but I thought trombones were in Bb.

Aw, thanks! It's nice to know my $80,000+ education in music is going to good use! :)
