    Do you play a musical instrument?

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Jaclyn, Dec 3, 2007.

    If so, what and for how long have you been playing?

    If not, what would you like to learn to play and how come you haven't already?

    I play the guitar and attempt to play the didgeridoo from time to time

    I've always wanted to play the violin, but I'm too lazy to stop by a music store.

    I have played tenor saxophone, but I am way out of practice. Not that I was ever performance quality.

    I don't like when people ask "Do you play a musical instrument?", because, after listing them all out, I might sound like I have an ego. I don't have an ego, it's just the size of the list. And it's not really a big deal. When you learn guitar, you've learned pretty much every other stringed instrument, too. And it goes like that with most instruments.

    That being said, I play guitar, piano, trumpet, harmonica, mandolin, bass, flute, drums, and sing, about 3 hours each day. And I compose about 2 hours a day.

    I play the flute.... well, PLAYED the flute. I'm a little out of practice, though I can still get out the basic scales and play simple pieces... ;)

    I play the piano and used to play the trombone :) Played the sax and drums at one stage, but totally forgotten how to now.

    I started playing the piano when I was 7, so been playing for 9 years, but don't get to practice much anymore. I'm also doing guitar now, hoping to get quite good.

    used to play the piano and the accordion.
    then I decided to become a singer instead. Still sing just not in public anymore.

    Percussion.

    Drums, conga's, bongo's, xylophone, what ever. That's about it though. I can strum a few chords on guitar and play a few on piano, but that's about it. And harmonica, i was once quite good at harmonica.

    I'd be interested to hear your music.

    I have a music project on the 'net, but I don't have any songs up yet. Just a really short sample I was testing stuff with. By January, though, I will have complete songs up. Here's the link.

    I have a few on my list as well, but I had siblings who taught me basics of a lot of instruments.

    Clarinet, Alto Sax, and Piano are my mains - but I can play oboe, flute, trumpet, a little violin and guitar as well.

    Been playing electric guitar for nearly 4 years.. It is, accompanied by my love of songwriting, my passion.
    It got me into loving metal, and i origionally wrote and played grunge, so those two genre's kinda OWN!!!!

    I play the piano. I'm not the best at it, but I can play songs that would be usually above my level. I've been learning on and off (currently off), though I am doing music in school, which has helped to keep me playing the piano.

    Oh gawd. That REALLY deserves an R-rated response.
    But I have to uphold the rules...

    lol Cogito! :p

    I have played the Harp before.
    Was fun too.
    Other wise the Organ and Piano. I don't like wind instruments so I never bothered with them at all.

    I've always wanted to play the violin and the sax. Not sure why, just want to. But I am too nice to the rest of the living world to actually attempt at playing either instrument!

    Yes. The world suffers enough from sax and violins.

    I play piano semi professionally (as professionally as I possibly can, at least), and clarinet once in awhile.
    The piano will always be my favorite instrument, regardless of my frustrations. : )

    I've always wanted to learn the violin.
