Does anyone play the melodica for reasons other than the sound?

    Hi I played the accordion for eleven years until I had to stop as my fingers on my left hand yes to lock together stopping me use the bass so I started looking around at keyboards that sounded very similar to the accordion and found the melodica by chance which now I enjoy nearly as much as the accordion.

    Yes and no. I got a melodica because I’m primarily a keyboard player, well, learner more like. But what I mean is, unlike guitar, a keyboard is a natural instrument for me (been playing keyboards on and off since I was 11) and I wanted a small, portable keyboard to supplement my keyboard technique. But also I like harmonica but I just can’t get to grips with that instrument. And accordions, though cool, are eye wateringly expensive!
    But I’m also a woodwind player, and melodica kind of combines wind with keys in one neat package.
