I'm not a newbie to the recorder world -- there's been at least one in my house for as long as I can remember. However, I'm considering finally learning how to play, since my father isn't interested in his any more, and I hate to see musical instruments that have been in the family for a while just abandoned...(yes, I also have a house full of pets!)
My question is: how "experienced" a player were you when you started playing baroque and/or renaissance music? Eventually I am going to graduate my middle-aged self from college in May, and am considering finally getting actively involved in the SCA. Since my primary instrument (anglo concertina) did not exist until 1830, so I was considering something a little more "period."
And there just happen to be all these soprano and alto recorders in need of a good home...
