#beginquote# #beginquote# Have you heard of the Sachs-Hornbostel System? It classifies instruments into five different categories. Maybe this is what your boyscouts are referring to? There's an article here
seems a bit complicated for what he is refering to. I'm leaning toward electronic or the human voice. Human voice being my choice. Some might say the keyboards. Piano, however is hammered like a percussion and some people classify the piano as percussion instrument. A true pipe organ sounds are created by air pressure, so could it be argued that it is a wind instrument. The harpsichord sound is created by the plucking of a string so is it a string instrument? I lean toward these 5 choices. Voice Percussion String Brass Woodwind I listed them in order of historical significance (my opinion). #endquote#
