Music is performed using musical instruments, which usually are items that be carried around.

Usage

To play or tune a musical instrument, you need skills in the relevant crafts.music.instruments skill. You can use the commands play, perform and with all or most instruments, though some have additional commands. Stringed instruments may be strummed, and some instruments require tuning (which uses the relevant crafts.music.instruments skill) before they can be played. Primers and sheet music can be used with some instruments.

The commands that can be used in order of difficulty, are:

  • tune <instrument>
  • play music on <instrument> from primer
  • play <instrument>
  • serenade <living> on <instrument>
  • perform solo on <instrument>
  • play music on <instrument> from sheet music
  • play <custom message> on <instrument>
  • serenade <living> with <custom message> on <instrument>
