I’m a trombone.
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.
Kinda wanna be a pyrophone just because they’re cool…cause that would totally be in an orchestra
100% would be in an orchestra.
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.
**effective? I really don’t know
I agree with you being bass
Are we talking about an electric bass, a standup bass, or a vocal bass?
(That’s not meant passive aggressively, merely a quick response)
Potassium can be passive aggressive?
*almost chokes on mountain dew*
*unshockingly doesn’t almost choke on Mountain Dew as a result of never having had it*
*you should try it*
*Should I though? It’s soda*
*so? Duh it’s probably bad for you but it tastes good*
*Does it though?*
*I suppose it’s a matter of preference*
I don’t like mountain dew. Have Birch Beer instead. 10/10 highly recommend.
I’m glad I can be funny for once
Hm… I shall have to remember that.
What? You’re funny sometimes…
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.
