Srs2388
I was wondering how many of you guys play music...
what do you play?
I play
some bass....
a ton of guitar
very little but piano
thats about it I love my music how many others do the same?
Billwaa
I think there are like 100 topics like this out there, but I play violin, guitar (both wood and electric), trombones, piano.

I also compose music.
SunburnedCactus
Guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, vocals...

Yep, I'm pretty sure I've posted this before a few times as well.
Airfrorfria
electric guitar all the way. I'm lead guitarist for my band IMMUNITY. We still need a bassist, we have an acoustic guitarist, a singer, a drummer, myself, and a recorder. We're punk rock and heavy metal I've wrote a few songs let's just say I'm no Edgar Allen Poe.
chargoyle
Yeah his topic does seem a bit familiar....but at any rate, I play French horn, trombone, piano, and a little bit of the flute and the cello. Also, I'm learning how to play guitar. Also, I've got some programs on my computer so I make a little bit of techno and some orchestral-sounding stuff.
inscribed
I play my Cello mostly. I love my cello. Although, recently, I've been dabbling in Fiddles and Violins. They all make such wonderful and melodious sounds. And, of course my interest has been piqued by the electric guitar, but I have yet to pick one up. It's sad, really.

I'm actually hoping to get a new cello with a pickup installed, so it can compete with the other members of our band. It's really awkward setting it up with mics to pick up all of the sound. That, and a lot of the time the system ends up screwing up. It's such a pain. But, that's what I get for not wanting to spend that extra 500 dollars in the first place.

Here's a question; Has anyone out there bought an instrument that has costed them an arm or a leg, or more than that? I know my cello was hell to get a hold of, but I'm just curious to know if anyone else has done this. :3

Edgar Allen Poe writes stories, not songs Wink

For me, I'm learning both drums and piano as well as keyboards. It's tough though since my neightbors are very vocal about me making too much noise when I'm practicing.
sonictooth
I mostly play the bass and a little guitar. I'm also learning keyboards and starting to do some electronic sounds (drums, synths) for my electro-jazz band.

Ofinet
heheheheh, mainly I'm a pianist.
I can pass of as a rythm guitarist.
I'm currently experenting with bass guitar.
I learnt drums for a whole year but the tutor was crap so I quit.
I learnt violin for a year too...ugh...and quit for the same reason as drums.
But you're all forgetting that THE VOICE is an instrument!!!! I've got maaaad pipes Razz (Lead singer and all)

Speaking of multi-instrumental skills, you should see my band. It's like musical chairs with instruments. We don't go through a set without switching instruments atleast three times. FUN FUN Razz
edgeofend
Bass and vocals (in my band), guitar (just for fun), keyboard (sometimes) drums (not so much), percussions (not so often as i would want to) Smile

minb2215
You play a lot of instruments. I think i learned new ones just by reading this forum. I'm just playing piano, and I think it's enough. Not classic piano ( Shame on you ) but more like blues, jazz and pop
schudder
Well, I've got classical training in Piano, full 10 years, so I'd say I'm pretty good at that, though I wish I'd taken some Jazz piano as well, cause I couldn't improvise if my life depended on it Razz

Besides that, I also started learning classical (not acoustic) guitar on my own, some 2 years ago. I'm still not that good, though I could probably play some punk songs if I wanted Wink I also have an electrical guitar, but I don't play that one as much, mainly cause my only amp is a mastodont Fender Quadreverb, weighs 40 kilos and makes a lot of sound, which my neighbours wouldn't like.

And next to that I'm also doing some synths, bass, recorder,...
Nick87
My first instrument is the guitar, I love to play it, and eventhough I haven't been playing for very long (5 years now) I do practise very intensive, so I think I can say I'm pretty advanced by now.
The instruments I can more than save myself on are the drums, percussion (african rhythems are my speciality), bass guitar, piano and I can sing.
And I compose.
PureSimpleNatural
I took alot of music in school, so I've learned to play a few instruments for the school orchestra -

Recorder (still play)
Oboe (tried the Bassoon)
Concert Flute / Piccolo
some Sax

For fun, I play some keyboard and am currently learning classical guitar. I also oft times pick up the Recorder (as stated already), the Irish Tin Whistle, Pan Flute and other various wooden Flutes. Oh, and I sing... and along with my husband, mix music. I enjoyed Music Theory and composing but it's been a long time and I've forgotten most of it.

Favorite instrument is the Flute Rolling Eyes , and I hope to be able to get another concert Flute soon.

Very Happy
muohan
It's much more difficult to play one instrument well than play many just so so, and is more useful too.

Perhaps... but I enjoyed the challenge of learning different instruments, and I think it was useful being placed where needed in the orchestra - this was especially so with the oboe, as I was the only one able to play it. So, I really don't think my repetoire is a total waste.

1) ummm, where? It's just me and my 2 friends. We still need a bass player but basically we just decided to start a band.

2) We haven't played anywhere yet because we've only started writing, need and bassist, and need a singer-But when we do it would just be like local places.

3) I don't know exactly what style you would call it but its like Alternative Rock, kind of punk.
storken

The Juno is definitely an awesome synth, you can get some really nice sounds out of it. One of my favourites anyway.
Loghete
I have played the piano for half a year.
I wanted to make music. So I decided to learn to play something.

I'm making music with FL Studio now. Check out my webpage if you want to hear some ---link removed by rvec----
Petee
I play lots of instuments - Trombone, Baritone, French Horn, Trumpet (Not very well yet), Acoustic Guitar (6 & 12 string), Electric Guitar, and Piano (Sort of).
bloody_grunt
I play clarinet but I'm thinking of dropping it. I mean I'm not going into music for my career, It was just kind of a side thing. Plus it's getting kind of annoying taking up my schedule for school.

meaniegeanies
Drums, guitar, bass guitar and keyboards.

I play in a garage punk girl group (I'm the only male) in Greece called (quess...) The Meanie Geanies.
Jesica
Hello

I play piano, I studied music in a private lesson in my home, I learned the musical note, harmonolgy (music harmony), solphage.

I'm very fond of music, specially the classic music..music of Beethoven, Mozart, Shopan, Tshikofski, Buch & many others. Also I like very much music that called "Nations' music" like Hungarian Dance, Zorba the Greek, I mean the music that is a sign of it's country & it's nation.

I like most of the strings instruments like "Harp, Violin, Cello, guitar...ect" & some rhythmic instruments. But I'm actually play only piano & I want to learn more other musical instruments.

Yours
coreygates
i play guitar, some bass, some piano, cant play drums to save my life (maybe some practice?) and i would love to get some bagpipes
Xminor131
I play the xylophones. a little tuba Cool you know cause the chicks dig it .
Konfunderad
I can't really play any instrument. Some chords and so on acoustic gitarr, some on bass gitarr and some notes/tones on the flute. And that definitly it.
AftershockVibe
I play keys. Nothing exotic usually although I have played belgian church bells via a keyboard and blasted out the Phantom of the Opera theme ona a church organ. Tres cool.
eku53ru
I used to play piano when I was younger, but I was actually allowed to quit by my parents after I got bored of it a year and a half later. I guess I can call myself lucky, but I wish I now had the motivation to continue learning it.

After that, I picked up recorder (though that quickly died), and now I'm currently a seven years of flute (well, four if you cut off the three-year break). I've just begun learning the piccolo, and the most amusing thing about that is while looking online for fingering charts, I came across a site suggesting musician-standard earplugs. XD

I play guitar, ( electric ) and am getting lessons every thursday.

Sometimes I play the drum, and sometimes I play the keyboard.

I play the electric guitar, I love it!
starcatcher5555
I play violin, but I mess with the piano on given days. I play mainly classical.
Hippie
Piano, Drums, and the Didgeridoo. I wail on the Disgeridoo. .........................
Thundr n Lightning
I play the violin, can get around the piano enough for Theory and Composition purposes, and can doodle quite a bit on the viola, cello, and string bass.

I can also play a little harmonica, if that counts Laughing And I can play a little bit of the Chinese bamboo flute (xiao) and the recorder Razz
Tyler
I play cello, piano, bassoon, double-bass, oboe, xylophone, timpani, French horn and I compose music.

I'm a HUGE classical music fan and I'm on tour right now in Denmark and Germany, and I'm going to be having a concert at the Sydney Opera House in June.


I'm VERY musical ^___^

Subsonic Sound
I'm an obsessive bassist. I own four of the things, electric, acoustic, fretless and six-string. If I see a bass when I enter a room, it doesn't take too long before I'm doodling away. I've been playing perhaps four years now...

Currently working on learning Jaco Pastorius's Chromatic Fantasy for the fretless bass. Anyone who's heard it will know what a challenge that is! I'm currently a little stuck, on a part that seems to demand phasing fingers. Jaco was a monster player.

I also play some guitar and keyboards - the keyboards primarily for MIDI sequencing, which I'm getting fairly good at. I can't play the keyboard very well, but I can use the programs well enough to compensate very quickly. Reason 3.0 is my weapon of choice for sequencing, if anyone's used that.
Forgotten Legends
Well me I play a lot of percussion things. In band at school I am in the percussion section but in my free time I enjoy playing my drum set and my keyboard. I spend most of my time playing hard rock when I am at home.
Also I enjoy writing my own music. Smile
TheMentor
yea i play electric guitar, bass guitar, durms, vocal, piano and some equipment about music

Garbled as it may be, that's true. Music theory is applicable to all instruments - well... standard 12TET theory is applicable to all conventional western instruments - so though you may have to hesitate for a second to figure out how to apply it on a new instrument, theory knowledge combined with a good feeling for rhythm and melody will let you at least have a go on any instrument you can get your hands on.

I learnt to play music on a bass, but I apply those principles to keyboards just as well, and guitar is virtually identical in playing style and theory. There's... one bass technique comes to mind that can't be done on a guitar, but aside from that.
Shewolf
I play some piano, some guitar and the tin whistle and the clarinett. And I love to play the keys, just for fun Laughing
Joewhite
I am able to play guitar, piano and some drums.
opsdaddy
I've been playing acoustic guitar for 25+ years. Recently I've been taking up the banjo. I'm surprised how easy it is to sound decent on it. Playing fingerstyle acoustic for years certainly helped.

We've got a piano that I've had the good fortune to move twice (UGH!) that I may get to at some point.....hmm.....
windrei
um..... i played guitar in high school. But i give up already. i think i do not have talent on it. i have learnt it for years and played with my friends, but i still cannot did good....

and i learnt violin in univeristy for 2 years. i play it now sometimes, but not always.

What i now always play is the Chinese flute. Do you know ? it's a flute made of bamboo. It sounds very nice, and i can play it good.

i am going to learn saxophone. i bought a saxophone last week. i am so happy. i like music.
Artelis
Drums, trumpet, piano, guitar, sitar, tabla
headoncollision
I think there's a big difference between "playing" and "playing an instrument well."
Techincally, I could play almost any instrument anyone throws at me - piano, bass guitar, flute, trumpet, guitar .. because I've had some experience learning them. However, the only real instruments I can play impressively are drums and bass guitar.
Guyon
In elementary school we were written up in a national article for advanced music training. We had a VERY musical school. I knew what a diatonic triad was in 6th grade. LOL I can not go to a ballet, symphony or opera with knowing someone playing.

I played keyboard in a band
I also can play my Greek lyre, and the radio Smile

I am teaching my daughter and son to play guitar, and I can not play one note myself.
Artemis11
I've been playing piano for 8 years. I also play tenor/alto/bari sax in my school band. I know some basic guitar stuff. Um, can play a bit of clarinet, and trombone. Thats about it.
avblue
I play guitar, and lots of it. Very Happy I love it. I play piano a little bit too. Took lessons years ago, but quit...now I totally regret it. -_- I play a little bit of the drums too. Not very good at it, though. Razz I kind of want to learn to play the banjo, just because it'd be neat to learn, it's different, and it'd freak my friends out. Cool

Hey, I play just saxofon! It's cool! Embarassed

I have a Chinese flute, though I suppose its more of a clarinet than a flute with regard to hand position. It's a xiao1, bamboo and with a home key of D.

Do you play the xiao or the dizi?
supjapscrapper
I play ... nothing Sad I've tried guitar many times but I'm way way too impatient to learn everything by therules ... this is dumb I know ... I prefer a lot more listening and chilling Very Happy

gisyellow
i just play wood guitar
Citizen Kane
I play drums and a little bass. Had me a deathmetalband a couple of years ago, but started to get boring. No melody at all, just going like crazy. blastbeats and all that stuff.

After that i played in a progressive groove oriented band. loads of fun, but after the bass player had to quit, the guitarist and I were the only ones left... and there wheren many good players in the region.

since then, I've moved. some 300 kilometers. and now trying to do the same kind of band again. Influences: transport League, Tool, APC, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Mudvayne, Foo Fighters and al that goooooood goooood shit that god gave us (cough cough).
Hippie
Yep, play the drums, looking to get into playing some bass....Just need money to buy the equipment. God that crap is expensive. If I had a million dollars I would still find ways to beef up my equipment. Very Happy

Well, I'm in a music school, but my main subject is opera vocal, so I focus on singing. (You'll hear about me some day, I'm sure Laughing ) In my school I have also compulsory piano classes, but I'm not very good at it, and I play guitar for my own joy Smile

I couldn't imagine my life without music. Very Happy

Ive currently been playing for about 3 years. I have a Martin DC-16RE Aura acoustic-electric, and a gibson les paul standard electric. I cant decide which i like better. somedays im in the mood for my acoustic, but most of the time i love pounding out the riffs with my HUGE 30 watt fender amp. That was a joke. I have a couple of nice guitars, but i need to work on the amp. Money dont come easy, especially after spending every dime i had for the guitars.
Yukon
I used to play the saxaphone. Mostly the tenor but I started on the alto back in middle school.
I did some messing around with on the drums a while back and fiddled with a bass guitar for about 2 weeks.
But I haven't picked up a musical instrument in about 2 years now.
What I really would like to do is learn to play the guitar and not just plunck a few chords and fake it.
seanooi
I play the piano, have a grade 8 diploma in it.
I also play electones (might be known as organ to some people) and have a grade 1 diploma in it.
Currently trying to self learn guitar, but always end up going back to my piano or electone. Laughing
macfly
some bass, tons of guitar in almost every style, very little keyboards and a bit more drums.

learning how to play the keyboard is not that hard.all you have to know how to play was the chords,know your keys,know your minors pass the exam and finito.i'm learning how to play the keyboard also.i am only on grade 2.i'm not that good but when it comes to making my own music,men do i rock.
Screech
I play a few, I play the electric guitar(Epiphone Les Paul with Gibson pickups, because I refuse to pay over 4 grand for a Gibson. And a Fender Strat in Artic white. Fender 4x12 Deville a fewe pedals)

I also play bass (Fender p-bass with Seymour DUncan 1/4 pounders in there through a SVT 8x10)

Drums too (Just some Pearl i've had forever)

I sing in sever al choirs (Jazz choir, show choir, concert chor)

I play piano (I play my grandfather's old grand we keep downstairs and a organ)

And lastly Alto sax, I suck terribly at horns, but i'm trying.
vlnjodie
I'm actually a professional violinist....or studying to be one. Mostly I want to teach violin lessons and I have a small studio of violinists. I'm getting my masters degree at University of Oregon in violin performance.

I was forced to learn piano during my undergrad (every music major has to). However, I certainly don't think I can play the piano, only plunk out a few chords here and there.
carolinehjkim
I can play flute and I love this instrument. I'm also in school marching/concert band.
I had played piano for eight years but I quit like two years ago. Piano is fun but sometimes you can get bored. I also play tin whistle which is not a really fancy one but I love the sound of it.
I woule love to learn other instruments, too.

cfackler
Tuba, saxophone, and bassoon. With some dabbling at the piano.
kazoe
ok, so most people here play guitar. i think almost everybody somewhere in their life had at learned the basics of guitar.

On me, I've started playing the guitars since high school but.. I dont know i kinda get tired on it and without realizing, I gravitated towards the drums and I stayed playing the said instrument.
Eiken
I can kind of play the piano, I want to really learn how to this summer. Also, I'm a pretty good singer, at least that's what they tell me.

If you don't know what to do with your keyboard, sell it to me Smile I'm learning piano and I don't have anything to practise at home (staying late in the school to practise is not what I like most ). I don't rather consider buying a piano as they are too expensive (I don't even have enough space in my room Laughing ) but a keyboard would be OK. Very Happy
BlacKRoSeS
I play guitar, electric and acoustic, and a little on drums, but im not too good on drums and im missing a hi-hat at the moment, so i mostly just play on guitar now.

I'm a classically trained pianist. Still play at a medium serious level, but no where near where I was in college. I made my living as an organist in churches for awhile...
vexation
I have been playing the violin since I was 7.

I also play the guitar, both acoustic and electric. I can play some bass although I don't formally own one. I would like to learn drums someday though.

I took a few voice lessons here and there and can sing decently although I haven't practiced in forever...
planetasian
I play the piano, cello and violin!
spaz-o
I play guitar and drums, mostly. Guitar for 3 years, drums just a few months. I teach myself pretty much everything I know, but I'm hoping to get a teacher soon.

I own a really beautiful cream Ibanez JTK1 Jet King, a crappier squier strat (that I got for free) and a Canora classical guitar, which needs a new saddle (that I haven't had the time to buy).

In the drums department I have a black wrapped Tama Rockstar 6 piece kit, with ZBT plus hats, crash, ride and splash, Zildjian High Boy china, Zildjian Thick Crash and Sabian China Splash.



Ahhh, the joys of music Very Happy

zamolxes
I'm a composer too, I play piano, but also percussion. I love african percussion, I had the chance to study and play african music from Ghana. I played some latino percussion too. My absolutely favourite percussion instrument is the djembe. My absolutely favourite instrument (well, a percussion instrument too... sort of) is the piano. I use it when composing. And then, the computer (to second the guy who said he playes computer games, hahaha), but I use it to compose, to make music... so it's sort of an instrument...
soldeinvierno
I play guitar (both electric and accoustic) and harmonica. I also play in a band and believe me there's nothing better than being on stage with another 4 fellas doing what you like the most!

I spend almost all my free time now playing my electric guitar. Nothing makes me feel more at pease with myself than to look up a song I like and learn how to ply to it. But I also play drums and bass pretty well. I tried trumpet once... didn't quite work out.

I play the guitar as of now. But too bad, i couldnt have any formal training as there are not training centers in the place where i live. It is really sad and frustrating at times but i try and learn as much as i can, because i love playing the guitar.
When i grow old i would definately want to spend a lot of time composing music and writing songs.

I have classical training on piano, also play jazz and pretty much any other genre on it. Also play (alto and tenor) saxophone and I'm a long way into learning electric guitar (meaning I'm relatively competent). I can work the violin and bass. And sing (and play the previously mentioned instruments) in a band doing mainly rock, but also jazz, acoustic ballads and various odd stuff - learning the guitar to add second guitar for the band - we're five people pretty much incorporating every kind of instrument and combination by now, depending on the song. Smile

i play all sorts of guitars and piano..and a little of violin..(: guitar was more of self learnt, but i still like it more than piano though
Shanghai_Dragon
I used to play the piano when I was, and I was ok at it... I quit after being stuck on Chopin's fantasae impromtu Evil or Very Mad . The left and right hands were too hard to put together. I kind of want to go back playing piano but I don't have time for it anymore.

I also played Clarinet for school band, I stopped when I quit band, and I can't play it anymore... same for the violin.
.you.make.my.heart.happy.
I'm obsessed with music; i love it so much!
I play the drumbs, and a wee little bit of the bass guitar.
I also sing, not too bad either, i must say...
And in the past i've played the violin, recorder and the Zamponia Pan Flute. Very Happy
Alistair
I am mainly a piano guy - started when I was 3.5 and did lessons until I was 14. Now I just do it for fun, but I am thinking of going and learning Jazz piano sometime soon.

I also dabble with the Guitar, Piano Accordian, Tin Whistle and Low Whistle. Have played Sax and enjoy it but haven't played since high-school. But I can pick up the basics of most intruments pretty quickly.

I also love playing PS2's Guitar Hero! You might think that is wacky, but it is actually a lot of fun and a good challenge. Let's you play like a pro even if you couldn't make amatuer grade on a real guitar to save yourself.
A great way to get kids interested in music too.

I play the cello, and I am doing this a few years, and now I am becoming better and better I can play more advanced and modern music. That's fun.
jasmine
I play a little bit of piano. It was an on and off lesson when I was still in elementary.

For me, it was more of a knowing the basics of music and I don't have plans of going professional on it. Smile

As of now, I am content with the little music I can make, especially easy ballad pieces. Very Happy

Jakob [JaWGames]
I plays trumpet and keyboard. I have played trumpet in more than seven years so I kow it quite well by now. I started to play keyboard now this summer and it is almost as fun as trumpet. It is also much, much easier to become quite good at it.
handles
I played piano for three years, clarinet for one, and f horn for four. I want to play clarinet again and to start with the trumpet, but I can't justify the expense. Perhaps to celebrate graduation...

Well, it is interesting to see how many people play instruments. I am more than a little amused to see the number of people who play guitars; I had not realized the instrument was so popular.
Becky
I play the clarinet. Been playing it for almost 6 years. But i had to give it up because i didnt have time for lessons anymore, as i had alot of work at school . Sad
Also i play high level recorder (Laughing), bascially i knew all the notes possible on it. The recorder is really sqeaky once you get to the really high notes lol.

I play nothing at all Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad

I play lots of stuff, though I'd like to learn more. I currently play guitar (electric, acoustic, bass, all of em'), Trombone, Baritone, very little piano. I can also play the French Horn and Trumpet, just not as well as other brass instruments (the mouth piece's are too small for me Sad ) I've tried several woodwind instruments, such as Saxiphone, BariSax, and Flute, I just don't know how to play them right yet Razz.
jds10912
i play guitar (both electric and acoustic), and a little bit of bass every now and then, but i really want to learn to play drums. i probably would have played drums if my brother had not gotten a guitar

Very Happy Hello there fellow musicians! I just got excited as soon as I saw this topic here, it's nice to know that i've made the right choice in choosing FRIHOST. To say the least; I would like to properly introduce myself to all the good people in this community. My name is Mark, im a keyboardist, rhythm gutarist and play the soprano as a hobby. I'm so into collaboration with other musicians since that; in my opinion is one of the best ways to grow in music. I am aslo a composer, arranger and solo performer. Honestly, the main reason i found this site is due to the fact that i've been searching for a free web host to help me in starting a small home-based business that offer services in the field of music. Should any interests arise please do not hesitate to send me a message or two, i'll be more than happy to reply. My thanks to the people behind FRIHOST, and to all in the community. Good day to all

wombatrpgs
I have played the cello for almost six years, but I am still learning at. For the life of me I can't play the piano.

Also, I use a midi program on my computer to make up for my lack of piano skills. I like composing these electronical pieces better than other instruments.

I am guessing, as I haven't read ALL the posts, that a lot of these are big lists of stuff. Here we go (LOL):

(In order of appearance):

Anything at primary school - guiro, cabasa, maraca, chime bar, (melodica, although it smelt and everyone was scared of it)

The mighty recorder - descant, then tenor

The piano (pronounced Pee-Annah)

Percussion (to a highly sophisticated level):

Kit, Xylophone, Glockenspiel, Vibes, Marimba, Timpani, Tibales, Bongos, Congas, Toms, Snare (virtuoso), Triangle (virtuouso), Windchimes, Castanets, Tubular Bells, . . .

The Guitar (pronounced Gee-Tarrrrrr!)
The Bass Guitar

I can also sing, though all I want to do is play the didgereeedoooo!

feliciafans
I have very strange arsenal of instruments.

1. Violin

2. Mandolin

3. Piano

4. Saxophone

5.Harmonica

Yeah, music is fun! I play in an advanced level on the pianoand violin. The others are just for fun. For instance, I bought a very cheap saxophone during a vacation and the mandolin came from an auction. It's pretty old! Like 100 years or something. There are like crack and everthing.

Anyway, Violin is my foremost instrument, and I have been playing semi-professsionally since 2 years. It's a great fun since you can play in an orchestra. The down-part is that you'll have to constantly change the strings and the hair on the bow. Another disadvantage for violinists is that injuries often occure due to the fact that you have to hold the violin with your chin and shoulder, which can cause fatigue when played too long.

Violin is a beautiful instrument, when you play it the right way. It's the most expressive instrument in the orchestra. This means that it is a very flexible instrument to use and suits more or less any genre of music.

Violin fingering and bowing techniques can be very induring
patrickrapp
I program synthezisers on my laptop. S electronic music. I also sample a lot of sound wich I use in my sound art.

I have few guitars: fiesta red fender jagstang, sunburst washburn strat, red series 10 bass, and a applause black plastic acoustic.

I have yamaha keyboard I mess with once and a while. I also used to play trumpet and baritone tuba in middle school.
Dragate
Everyone seems so talented here, and a lot of us know lots of instruments :O

I personally only really play the piano really well. Despite my age, being 16, I already teach it. I'm getting a diploma for it right now ^^ ~

I played flute and trumpet in concert bands, and self learned quite a bit of violin.

I hope to one day learn the acoustic and electric guitar, just becuase they sound so cool. I also would like to learn the Chinese instrument, the Erhu, for it's crazy good sound. I would like to sing also XD
Insanity
I can play a little bit of drums, but I don't have a drumset or anything, so I just play around with my friend's.

Same with guitar, but I think I have been improving since I borrowed it.

Piano! The instrument I am best at, but still suck at, surprisingly.
KentB
Well, i've been playing piano for 6 years, and am currently in grade 10, and i'm also third in Ontario, so i'm very proud of that.

Besides that, I play keyboard (yes, keyboard and piano ARE different), guitar, trombone, violin, drums, and timpani... and basically anything else I can pick up and fool around with.

You've gotta love music Very Happy
kcthomas44
I play the saxaphone, guitar, clarinet and guitar. I love to play music, but rarely get enough time. I picked up music from my dad who is the most musicaly talented person (besides people in huge successful bands) I have ever met. He can play any instrument you put in front of him. He plays the fiddle, guitar, piano, and saxaphone at home, but can also play the drums and bass and all kinds of other stuff, we just don't have those at home. He used to be in a band, and dropped out of school for a bit to try and make it big in nashville. Nowadays he plays for special events at church and school and whenever somebuddy needs him. He is my musical hero and I'm glad I got to share that.
SGbilder
Of course i play a few instruments! Doesn't everybody?
Wink

I started playing the piano when i was like six years old. Had the greatest teacher ever, even thoug she never got me to know notes. I just played by the ear from the beginning instead..

When i was about 10 i got my first drumkit and got into my first band maybe a year later.. Punk is a great way to start.. Doesn't take all that much skill.. after i couple of years i was playing in a marching band, in a death metal band (wich i also sang, or rather screamed in) in a HardCore vegan band (I wasn't a vegan thou') and in a jazz quartet.

I quit playng the drums when i was about 14 och 15. Got my first guitarr when i was 13 and learned it by myself. Played all the time in a bunch of bands and at parties. Started making some money for playing when i was maybe 16. I mostly played pretty strait forward rock, but i wanted to play jazz. Jazzguitarr is so cool!

When i was about 14-15 i discovered the electric bass! The greatest instrument in the world! It started as it does. Starting a band and not finding a bass player i thought that i could play it, i mean i can play the guitarr, whats the differense? Thats the great thing about bass. Almost anyone can play it. But the thing is to go from beeing able to play it to actually beeing a bass player it's such a long step. Today i cant stand a guitarrist playing the bass. It just doesn't work. I've played the bass for almost everyday in ten years now. I play eather a 4-stringed Sadowsky or a 5-stringed Music Man Stingray. I've got a 4-stringed fender jazz bass without the bars (i guess it is called) wich i use if i cant take my contrabass with me...

Thats the next thing. I hope it is called a contrabass in english to. (It is in swedish) Otherwise, it's the stand up, violin looking accoustic bass i mean.. Played it for seven years now, I love it, but hate to carry it..
Razz

I also cheat on som perc. like congas and djembes and stuff..

If you ask me i could play some harmonica for you and a few songs on the accordion.. Hmm.. have i missed anythig?? Hmm.. hope not..

hmmm thats probably because you werent a good bassist to be fair mate. Bass aint boring unless your after the blink fashion root note hogging!


EDIT:

'SYTHIST'
pronounced: s-eye-th-ist
meaning: not some kind of jedi but in fact a ridiculous mispelling on synthist
Subsonic Sound
Quote:

If you play it in a boring way, then yes. Any instrument has the capacity to be boring or simple. Like playing constant power chords on a guitar. Boring, simple. Root notes on a bass. Boring, simple. White Stripes lines on drums. Boring, simple.

But do me a favour. Check out 'Helios' or 'Dabuda's Memory' by Michael Manring. Then tell me bass is boring, or simple. Smile

Any instrument is just as simple, boring, complex or interesting as you make it, and if you couldn't put together any interesting basslines... well, that's your failing, not the instruments. Very Happy

And, I used to have an Ibanez SDGR 6 string bass. I bought it used for like $750, and I sold it a few years ago to buy stuff for my drums. I regret selling that thing every day. That was the best bass I 've ever played, and it sounded so sweet. Crying or Very sad

I play the trombone. If anyone is unsure of that instrument, its the brass instrument that has a slide that you can slide back and forth to create notes. I really LOVE the trombone. I also love our award winning band, since we get to go to Disneyland in CA to perform, and we also march in many parades. It really is the best of the best.

The guitar which i have just started and don't have any lessons on I'm pretty good but I've still got a very long way to go. Sorry world still a while to you hear the sound of my guitar
Firebird
I play Guitar a lot,I started when I was about 4 or 5 and ever since I've really enjoyed playing.I've been taking lessons since I was 7 but stopped when I was 12.I can play a few songs but mainly I like trying to see what I can come up with and what it comes out like.

I got my guitar when I was about 11 and it cost alot of money.After I've finished playing I always keep it in a case because I don't want it to get scratched or damaged.I've also tried other instruments but I find I work best with the guitar.I prefer to use a pick instead of my fingers because it's alot easy to hit the right notes.

ozank
since i was 10 years I play saz, a turkish traditional instruments.
In high school I started to play bass guitar, then for the band's need,
I learned to play drum.

I think playing an instrument is very important. It just recharges you are
tired, stressed etc..
brioshy
i play guitar *-*

Um, this is point where I sound really geeky. I've played piano since I was 6 (9 years), saxophone for 5 years, french horn for 2 and violin for under 1. I also do composition and all that jazz. Smile
wombatrpgs
Its seems composition is what's really fun about msuic, although I favor more improvisational. But I can't seem to do it as well as I can actually think up music...

I play the the guitar! The electric guitar is not an instrument... is a weapon which could kill anyone in front of it!

I play the piano. Been at it for about 9 years. I recently dropped it though, in favor of robotics. I was getting up there, so I was just a bit disappointed in myself, but not much.

If you literally mean a keyboard like for a piano, thats still a legitimate instrument. I'm wishing I could; would make composing with Noteworthy an awful lot easier...

Right now i'm learning to play the piano especially since i'm composing music. My drum skills are pretty good I just need to brush up on my music theory and practice on the piano a little more to help with my melodies. I would love also to play the guitar one day, its probably my favourite instrument out of all of them.

I've been playiing bass for 27 years now. I currently play a 6-string Ibanez SR506 bass through an SWR 750X head and 2 4x10 Yorkville cabs. Mostly, I play technical death metal, though I did cut a CD with an all original jazz/funk/blues instrumental band at one point.

My main band is called Wetwork, and our latest CD, Synod, has recieved some very good reviews.

Cheers.
Alex Is Mental
I don't play an istrument anymore, but I used to play electric guitar and I learnt quickly. But then I didn't want to put any effort into practising - so I stopped. Smile
brucedes
I play bass and a very small bit of piano.

To be honest, I'm not the best on either, but they're fun, and keep me occupied, which is what learning and instrument should be all about in the end, eh?

I play the bass and guitar for my band mouldylocks.
We also invite friends to play random istruments, like the violin. We're a family band ( 4 brothers and sisters) and we can all play a bit of everything, so we like to change places.... it's fun to play different things
jessgetman
I've played may instruments in my life - clarinet, bass clarinet, sax, oboe, bass guitar - and I've tried out some that I'm just terrible at (trumpet, accordion, violin). Oboe's definitely been the instrument for me, and right now I'm learning Baroque Oboe, which in my opinion sounds much more beautiful than its modern equivalent. Once a player can play it in tune, that is. <grin> If you guys have never heard a Baroque Oboe -- and you care to -- look up John Abberger, Marc Schachman or Gonzalo Ruiz.

I'm a music major in violin performance. I spend about 5 hours a day alone with my instrument plus rehearsals, lessons and performances. This semester I'm also taking secondary piano lessons as well as a beginner guitar class. It's kind of weird switching from violin to guitar, as the strings are set up so differently, but it's fun to explore new instruments. Music should always be a fun way to express yourself- no matter what the instrument. I think I'm finally at a point in my violin playing that I feel more comfortable in front of an audience and have more fun doing it.

heres my best to worst:
piano (9)

The topic of this thread is interesting. I am new to this thread so I can't possibly go through the entire thread from the start.
I want to know some instructions about buying an electric guitar and a good amplifier that is enough for a room. I would appreciate to know the estimated prices and the manufacturers.
Sorry if a similar message has been posted already.

Really good idea for a topic!

I play the trombone mainly, used to be in an orchesta called CAOS haha. They've got a website here... www.caos.man.ac.uk

Other than that i play the piano (badly, although apparently I'm a grade 6 hah!) and the harmonica, and I dabble with the guitar and bass guitar.

Oh, and I'm an accomplished triangle player of course...

My girlfriend's also a demon on the horn Laughing

Yes man i do play an instriment.I play a Keyboard.I had started learning and playing it long back when i was in 8th standard.At first i had started it just as an hobby.But now i have taken it in a professional standard and keep me updated with new new songs coming out and i i play it on the keyboard.Recently seeing my ability to play music on keyboard i was invited to do orchestration for an album.Though the album was meant only for a small scale release my tracks in that album was praised well by most people.Then sfter some time i got a chance to do music for an album.That is a chance to release my own album with my own music.Iam working on my album and i believe that knowing to play atleast one musical instrument is a very nice thing and i recommend those who dont know to play any instruments to learn to play any musical instrument..

eku53ru
The instruments I play/have played are piano, flute, and recorder. I can play the violin too, but I have poor posture/etc. since I basically monkey-play based on my sister. XD

I began playing the piano when I was almost eight, but by the time I was nine I was already bored of it, and my teacher felt I had hit a dead end. I ended up quitting that same year, and then my class decided to pick up recorder playing as an activity (I remember asking my piano teacher to help me with playing the recorder, haha). That didn't last long, but I still have it to this day. A year later I moved onto flute, and I played it for three years straight--that is, until I graduated from middle school. For high school, my schedule was too crammed to fit band in until junior year; however, by that time my skills had already deteriorated. I took band until I graduated high school, but I have stopped playing it seriously (since my college studies replicate my problem from high school). I might pick it up every now and then to play a random tune or three, but that's it.

Electric Guitar

I used to play violin and mess around on keyboards. But I found my way to the guitar.
peterlo
I play the violin, piano and flute. Music has been part of my life since young. The part I like about playing music is that, it is very self-fulfilling. Playing music can help me relax my mind and soothes my soul. Although you need a number of years of learning and practicing before you could do that, but the effort is worth it. That is why I teach music, in the hope that my students will be able to enjoy music the way it is meant to.
Insanity
I can play to some extent the guitar, piano, and drums. It's funny because I grew up playing the violin and the clarinet, but now I can't figure out how to play either. Probably because I never tried to learn anything much and I wasn't that interested in music at the time.
Bump_on_a_Log08
I play trumpet because it is the most amazing instrument out there. (sorry but it is) But I have thought about trying to play either alto or tenor saxophone. I am currently 2nd chair in my high school's band's trumpet section. I would like to compose music but it is a little difficult for me to get anywhere at this point, that is partly why I am taking the A.P. Music Theory class that our school is offering.

I don't' play instrument that I''m really interested to play with, the only instrument I know how to play is recorder because it's a must for music lesson in elementary school as long as there's music notes(which I translate it to c,d,e,f etc coz I can't remember the clef c major b minor etc.). I wish I could play guitar or piano but can't decide which I should opt for.

I used to play the drums a lot (did a bit of session recording), but have dropped them a bit since school. I've focused more on production since then while also trying (slowly) to teach myself piano and a bit of guitar. I had lessons on the piano when I was seven or eight, but had a bad teacher which put me off for years - it is something I wish I had stuck with though. It would be amazing to be grade 8 on piano now Sad

UtanCecilie
I started with playing the flute which you have to start with where I lived if you want to continue taking lessons for free at school.

So, I did flute for one year. After that I moved on to piano which I played for five years straight. While playing the piano I also sang in a choir which was nice, but my voice is not really for singing sort to say!
While I did piano and sang I also played violin.

I stopped with violin after a while, and started with guitar after I had also quit playing piano. Somewhere in between I started the DJing thing, which came out as the winner in the end because I haven't really played any instrument since I started with that!

So, I suppose you can say that I am fairly musical and that I love music Smile
collin
I USED to play the guitar, and after that the French Horn. I never could bring myself to practice enough, however, and decided to stop both. (French Horn was just band class and I hated it. And guitar I wasn't progressing in or enjoying, so I quit.)

=P

I sing. Technically I'm playing the only organic instrument, my vocal chords. I love to sing, I do it all the time. I made All-State choir and I plan to sing for a living when I get out of college.

hey there! i'm new here, thinking about possibly switching host, but anyway, i'm learning guitar. been playing for about 5 months maybe. i used to play piano but haven't done much of that lately, and used play some drums too. anyway, for all beginners, my advice is find the instrument you love to play!! if you don't enjoy it, you won't make 1/5th the progress you'll make by playing something you enjoy!

I used to play drums, about 5 years ago. I may pick up on them sometime soon, as I still have my drum set in fine condition.
browncoat777
I played trumpet for about 8 years. Playing any instrument really helps you to acclimate yourself to thinking in new ways, which is why I think musical people can be either english-types or math-types(or even both).

For me, playing trumpet was a great experience while it lasted, but I realized at the end of high school that I wasn't prepared to continue on with enough dedication to play at the college level. Is this the case for anyone else? Did anyone else play an instrument until they got too good or too old, reached a plateau, and then lost interest or desire for the instrument? I really love the trumpet, and I still want to take it up again, but I'm kind of overwhelmed by the mediocrity of doing so.

Anyone?

since christmas eve I have started to learn the piano. Got a yamaha keyboard, with the big piano samlings and good chuch organ sounds. So now the house is cooking with me tryin to play the boogie woogie.

For about 25 years ago I took classes how to play - gave it up since the material was boring classical music... Now I have just played boggie woogie and I have got better with the piano than the years i study it before. So play what you like and you will learn fast!

I've got about 12 years of trombone, and then self-taught piano, guitar, trumpet over the years. I actually picked up the trumpet relatively recently, and I'm finding it's so much easier to pick up another instrument, in any capacity, having other musical experience. It's great.
roninmedia
A long, long time, I played the piano. It was the easiest to play for me because the instrument made the correct sound when the right key was struck; it didn't require covering holes or adjusting the amount of force put into it.

I'm playing guitar for like 9 months now. I'm a left-handed guitarist, and I'm learning the classical guitar at the moment, but within 3 months I will be getting electric guitar. It's not so hard, though. It's the same as you play with right hand, but the strings must be placed in opposite direction. Actually, I've been playing for 6 months, if you don't count the first three months while I was figuring how to play in the opposite direction without changing the strings, but I've finally changed them and somehow managed to learn the basic guitar playing. But it's very basic. I can play some basic songs, songs for chords, some barres, and now I'm learning the scales. But I will be learning very hard, I have to get electric guitar bought, because my classic sucks a bit. Still I love my guitar. My strings are so shitty, but so durable that I can juggle the guitar within the strings Very Happy.
fpwebs
I have played for the last 10 years piano, I've taken 7 years of piano lessons and I have been playing ever since. About 6 years ago I also took 3 years of guitar lessons, and the only thing that I remember is the basics. I am really good at piano and I love playing that instrument since I believe it is a very beautiful instrument that sounds elegant. I learned the piano mainly because my mom wanted me to, and I would thank her right now if she was still alive. I've played for maybe half a year the flute, that instrument I really didn't like at all. I would love to learn the bass guitar since I have a really good stretch with my fingers and maybe something else eventually. Music is my life and without it I don't know what I would be doing right now.
TurtleShell
I played clarinet from fifth grade through my senior year of high school. Actually, in high school I was the alto clarinet, and it suited me because it was a really quiet instrument, and I was the only one:) I really enjoyed being a unique instrument in the band, but also being that no one could hear me anyway:)

Actually, my old Bflat clarinet was loaned to a family friend whose daughter started to play in grade school. Found out recently that it must have had a hairline fracture in it from all the years of wear and tear--it literally cracked into two pieces in the middle of a concert a couple years ago! So sad. I always thought I'd have that thing back some day:)

I also played the piano for a few years. I wasn't very good and didn't practice enough...

I hope you tried out several different pedals before deciding on one.

Try to avoid making major adjustments to the pedal, only make small ones to see what sort of an effect you get.

And start slowly to learn control. Try setting the metronome at a click of 50, and play 8th notes with your feet - R L R L R L. That's right, 50. Do this for 2 minutes, then raise the temp by 5 the next day to 55. Theoretically, it'll only take you 70 days to be playing single stroke 16th note rolls at 200 if you keep this up. Make sure you warm up first though.

yep I tried a few, including Tama's iron cobra, but I decided that the extra cash could go into a new crash or a 8 inch tom.

I tried like 3 other ones, and I bought the one that I felt most comfortable with at the store, which was the Mapex P980 (Double Chain).

about the practice routine you suggested,
Ill try it out, and hopefully I might achieve what you suggested Smile
thanks for the info
David_Pardy
Oh, and make sure you don't bury the beater into the head. Let it bounce back.

I'm glad you didn't just go out and buy an IC like a lot of people do Wink. The Pearl Eliminator is also a great pedal. I haven't tried the Mapex.

I also play in some Funks bands, Blues Bands .... whoever wants me really.
I'm studying my chords on the Piano at the moment and I came across a great tool if you play piano and also are into Computers ... a USB roll-up Piano. The piano fits in your laptop case too. All you need is a flat surface, a laptop and you've got a portable piano with full size keys. Anyway, I'm not trying to sell them, you can get them on Amazon.

hello there !

I have started this year playing a Yamaha YPT-200 which is the very low end of Yam instruments. Got it cheap at the food market on a special Christmas promotion.

Funny enough my singing teacher busted her key board and asked me if i could lend her mine which i did and now i have to come in with the machine every session because she loves the sound of the thing.

Thanks Yamaha. Very Happy

Due to my facination and obsession over Frets on Fire (http://fretsonfire.sourceforge.net/, open source Guitar hero clone for the PC), I have picked up guitar. I chose classical guitar because I really like the finger picking, and didn't want all the equipment related to an electric guitar.

I've been teaching myself using internet courses. I've been quite impressed with the availability of courses and material!

my goal: playing "tears in heaven"
my status: playing "yankee doodle"

Got a bit further to go...

I play piano, but I lack the dexterity and endurance to play more technical and fast songs. On that line of thought, do any piano players out there have any tips for warming up their fingers and improving hand and finger strength?

I find it easier to play a keyboard or MIDI synthesizer with lighter keys than the full blown pianos as well, preferring to play on the the former, which my music teacher tells me, "Is not a good thing."

I'm constantly practicing to improve on anything I can,but theres still alot of stuff I need to learn.

If someone wants to learn everything about guitars,then they better get ready to practice day in and day out for the next 30 years.LOL

I play the violin.

I used to play on my own and with my dad, but since last year I'm 2nd violin for a local academic orchestra.

I've made a few attempts with the guitar, no success yet. I'm lazy when it comes to practice, I already manage to play things I enjoy in the violin so it's really hard to go back to repeating over and over a guitar lesson.

I've also tried learning to play the piano. But I couldn't manage to dissociate the left hand from the right one.

I used to play guitar (electric and acoustic).

Ha, silliness usually helps playing instruments...

I am able to somewhat play the violin and the recorder (it's been awhile). I have been wanting to learn to play the piano for years now but haven't had the chance to begin.

These days I feel like the answer to this question is - I did once, and I now have the potential to.

Really, the motivation is the thing that's absent.

I play the guitar and piano. It's really soothing and relaxing playing songs and music that are pleasing to the ears.

i like hindi instrument song "Tera chera jab nazar aaiyea" too much.

I play guitar, mostly Acoustic guitar. I also have an electric guitar.
I usually play the Acoustic guitar because it is much more convenient to play, I don't need to have any equipment like amp or guitar effect boxes.
Just for some time when I'm bored, I find an electric guitar with distortion is some kind of stress relief.

I used to play the , gulp, accordion for two yrs as a kid. Later in life I realized it was mommas dream, child's nightmare lol
I won 5 trophy's though so all is good.

I've thought of trying the harmonica the last few yrs. You can carry that with you all the time

I used to sing in a band for a couple of years when I was younger... I even did a gig (first part) with Our Lady Peace a little before they got their first album out in 1992. I also play electric guitar, but I lack a little bit of time for this these days. Still got my Guibson explorer waiting in a corner...

Wait, you won five trophies for only two years on the accordion? That's pretty good.

Nothing Wrong with that! Ever hear Tom Waits? A few of his songs has the accordion in them that adds differential to them... but of course if you know his music, he always has something different going! Love his music!

I played the violen when I was younger. Now I mainly play the electric guitar and SOME acoustic guitar on by myself. But like others have said, "who doesn't?" lol So many do, especially in my area. Hard to find a drummer around here, and TO many guitar players! Have been in several bands, but the last two (Last Call & Psycho Babble) I enjoyed and liked the most. I mostly play Rock, Metal & N.Y.H.C. I want to experiment with different sounds, but it seems no one in my area wants to. I use to own a 5-string Ibanez bass that I played around with, but had to sell it. I miss it till this day. Love to play funk, I don't think that I am all that great on bass, but others have called me Les (Claypool - from Primus). Anyway, have fun and keep jam'n!

That's the case everywhere... Too many guitarists, never enough drummers.

Yes looks a little familiar with the topic but as always, I played the Horn, trombone, piano and a small flute and cello. I also learned to play the guitar. Also, I have several programs work, so I have a little techno and orchestral sounds.

What programs do you use to make music?

This is actually very nice, actually. I'm used to people around here who can't play it worth a damn.

I can play both acoustic guitar and piano/keyboard. But I can play more guitar than keyboard. I just love the sound of these instruments especially when there's someone singing.

I really want to try the bass and electric guitar, drums, and violin.

Electric, bass guitars, and drums are really cool to me. Rock and roll! xD

The violin's sound is really pleasing especially when it is slow. When it's fast, it's cool. Cool

I used to play the piano when I was younger. I've long since stopped playing. Never did get the hang of it or get out of beginner type lessons. Only other instrument I've attempted was the violin so far as to just having a beginner's violin. Never did manage to get lessons or teach myself how to play. It's just one of those things where I just keep putting it off. I don't have enough money now for lessons, but perhaps when I get a job, I'll finally look into taking some.

Almost more than lessons, it seems the time to put in for practice makes the difference.

For a long time I played guitar, a large stringed instrument and even the most popular in the world ... great fellow musician, is always ready to follow any time of life ...
Other instruments that I am fascinated by the sound and dynamics is the bass, drums, saxophone and percussion in general ... sorry can not play any of those.
Today I work in the area of ​​sound design, which I have passion and I identify very well =)

I'm curious how much it takes to transfer skills from guitar to banjo. I have no experience with either but it seems like it would be similar to transferring from one string instrument to another.

Always wanted to learn how to play guitar but have been too busy lately. For those who play guitar how did you guys start? Did you self learn everything through books or YouTube videos? Or did you get formal guitar lessons? What's the best way for a person with no experience at all to start learning?

I played the flute all the way through school. I hated it because I really sucked at it. I realize now that I sucked because I hated it, but oh well.
Now I play banjo and harmonicas.. I love them and guess what! I don't suck so much.. lol

I've been playing guitar all my life and do some gigging still, mainly folk or alternative acoustic. Not so much doing the heavy thing anymore haha got tired of the angst in the writing process. It's just so much easier to just be by yourself doing your own thing.
