    Chris said he’s an out-of-tune guitar.

    …what would I be though?
    Part of me wants to be like “I’m a harp because I’m elegant.” And another part of me is like “I’m more like a banjo if we are honest”

    I am probably a mandolin now that I think of it

    I take it that all musical instruments are fair game on this thread, since “banjo”, “mandolin”, and “guitar” are not commonly found in orchestras.

    Yeah, I don’t see why not. I probably should’ve made it more general than orchestra.

    I would be an ukulele for sure. It’s quieter, and it doesn’t really belong in an orchestra, but it has a nice sound.

    Perhaps I’m cymbals, always there, but not always being played. When I do sound out, I’m loud, and when played at the right time can be very affective.

    Or perhaps I’m bass, ever present but not always completely noticeable, more in the background but add an extra layer to song. Without me, it’d still be the same song, just not quite as good.

    Haha, both sound reasonable.

    Are we talking about an electric bass, a standup bass, or a vocal bass?

    I don’t like mountain dew. Have Birch Beer instead. 10/10 highly recommend.

    To address Masøn’s “affective” vs “effective” wondering:
    “Effective” comes from the noun “effect” (result) and means “producing a desired result”. This word is used in everyday speech, and the one that Masøn was using.
    “Affective” comes from the verb “affect” (making a display of liking, related to “affection”) and means “expressing emotion” or “related to emotion”. The term is almost exclusively used in psychology.

    It turns out that there are multiple English words spelled “effect” and “affect”, so it is tricky to explain which to use in which circumstances, but typically:
    “Effect” when used as a verb means “to cause directly”, and is seldom used.
    “Effect” when used as a noun means “result”.
    “Affect” when used as a verb means “to influence”, and is frequently used.
    “Affect” is never a noun in common speech.
    “Affect” can also refer to emotions, both as a noun and as a verb (the syllables are stressed differently to distinguish parts of speech), but that usage is limited to formal psychology studies and discussions.

    Practical application: In most circumstances, you’ll use “effective” as the adjective, “effect” as the noun, and “affect” as the verb when writing.
