My whole musical life (over 40 years) has been the other way round.

Rather than acquiring an instrument and then asking myself "what sort of music might I play on this?" I have, over and over, become enchanted with a particular genre of music, then acquired the instrument(s) deemed appropriate for the music by the mainstream practitioners of it.

In the Introduction to his book Bagpipes Anthony Baines makes the obvious-sounding but profound statement

"Like any musical instrument the bagpipe exists for the music played upon it and for this alone."

So when I became obsessed with Highland bagpipe music I learned how to play the Highland bagpipes, and when I became obsessed with Irish traditional music I learned the whistle, wooden flute, and uilleann pipes. When I began playing Bulgarian dance music in a band I learned the gaita and kaval.

Were I to want to get into playing, say, old New Orleans jazz clarinet music (which I dearly love listening to) I would learn clarinet.

It's just the way I've always approached music.
