#beginquote# The first three are questions that one could only guess at. I believe that music has always been around since the beginning of creation. It's part of who we are and how God made us. As far as when music notations and the like became standardized, I'm not really a historian, so I can't answer that, but I'm sure that there are at least a few threads here that discuss it; and you could always google "music history" to search for more. The last question has an obvious answer that most people would miss. The voice was the first musical instrument. It always cracks me up (read, annoys me) when people do not recognize the vocalists as musicians. Since I'm sure you weren't looking for "voice" as the first instrument, I'll tell you that I don't know what the second musical instrument was. Again, google might be a good place to start. My guess would be something in the percussion family, since those are the simplest (not "simplest to play", I only mean simplest in their nature and construction). Somebody banging two rocks together could be considered a musician, as long as they were keeping a beat. #endquote#
