    I am alternating between a battered full-size nylon stringed acoustic guitar [although it has a relatively shallow soundbox and is therefore rather 'quiet'] made by Brunswick and a Yamaha GL-1 Guitarlele which is a kind of 'miniature' 6-string classical guitar, about 2 foot long, which uses ordinary nylon strings, and has a fretboard that's roughly the same width as that of a regular electric guitar.

    Musically, occasionally my Yamaha YDP-141 digital piano. Rarely, also a Boosey & Hawkes clarinet.

    Game-wise, I'm playing my way through the Blackwell series of adventure games. Completed ...Legacy and ...Unbound, next is ...Convergence. They have a really original and interesting story line.

    I have a game on my iPad that I think might be similar to that. I spent several hours on it one day and had a great time. Amazing how much atmosphere can be conjured up just with a few spartan sentences and changes in the brightness of the screen.
