No brown notes for me. I learned that lesson from South Park.

Hadn't seen this thread before....

I play:

Bass Guitar
Alto Saxophone
Flute (badly)
Clarinet
Guitar (some)
French Horn (some)
Piano
Keyboards
Harmonica (badly..until I get lessons)


Music is one of my focuses in life, so I guess I've got quite a few instruments to tackle.

I was 1st chair 1st sax in band in middle school, which was pretty cool, but then when HS came, I didn't want to march---at all.

So I picked up bass and've been slapping away ever since. :)

My band has just launched some songs online for all to hear. Check them out at our Myspace page.

I used to play the Sax. Haven't picked one for a while now.

I play the guitar. Not well enough for a band, at least IMO, but no one really wants to hear a bunch of badly-played KISS songs around here, anyway.

If I was into country music, I'd have it made. That ****'s easy to play, plus country is ridiculously huge here. Though the country groupies are just....ugh. :o

Just got my tax return. Here's what I'm thinking about blowing it on:



Either that or I'll just save it for a Taylor or something. I do need a new acoustic guitar.

I've just been playing Guitar since less than a month or so... And I just started taking lessons, so I'm not too great. In 3rd grade I played violin, and recorder (If you call it an instrument)for all of grade school.

I grew up as a huge piano player, almost deciding to major in music in college but then realizing that the profession is way too cutthroat.  I haven't had as much time as I'd like the last couple of years, but just this week actually I bought a $2,000 electric piano, so I can get back into it again.

I actually pretty much paid my way through college as a church pianist and with a jazz band that me and a few buddies had.  Those were awesome times.  I might have actually had more money then than I do now.

I used to play guitar in a band called Next Season when I was in college... kind of a loud screamy hardcore/punk rock/rock n' roll type thing... beats me.

If anyone wants to hear the CD speak up and I'll post it on yousendit.

I started playing the Guitar about 10 years ago but then had a Bass shoved in my hands as my best friend's Hard Rock/Metal band needed someone to fill the shoes. That lasted about 7 years and we broke up. Still some of the best times i've ever had and miss it dearly. These days I just tinker around on Guitar and Bass. I was always more of a "Riff" writer than actual songs but I did write the theme song for my college sketch comedy TV show. If I could do anything i'd love to write jingles and TV theme songs. It sounds corny but it would be a dream come true...
