    I tried this with a normal lute and also purchased a Fleet Flute to test, effect was the same. Combat mode shows me with fists raised. Instrument animation does not play.

    I think this is intended - as it is a "Song", so you are singing rather than playing an instrument. If you are in combat holding a weapon, holding an instrument would be difficult to do at the same time. But - that's what I think - I'll forward it up just in case they had a different intent.

    As Designed. This is a casted spell, rather than a song played on an instrument. The character holding an instrument would cause a delay in response to combat actions, so the animation does not include an instrument requirement.
