What instruments do you play?
« on: March 21, 2007, 09:25:37 PM »
I'm pretty sure I've started this topic once already, because I seem to do it in every forum, but since this is finally music related, I can do it.

What instruments do you already play (and by play I mean play with some degree of proficiency. It doesn't mean you know a chord on a guitar or that you can play ode to joy on piano with your right hand)? What instruments would you like to play? Oh, and singing DOES count as an instrument, because (despite popular belief) it's hard work to sing well.

Strings - Viola (main instrument), violin, contrabass, guitar
Percussion - Drumset (standard jazz trap), djembe
Keyboard - (I'm taking piano lessons, but I play like a 12 year old. And not one of those 12 year old Asian prodigies)
i also somewhat sing.
I would love to play the piano better, and possibly bassoon or French horn. I've always been fascinated by the two, especially the extremes of their ranges and possible tones.

Anywho, how about you?

Rock, dude. Never believe anyone that says megaphone isn't an instrument.

Tool uses a megaphone to get the vocal filter effect during live shows.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.

Guitar - 20 years
Computers (trackers, sequencers) - 14 years?

And of course, skin flute.

On the subject of megaphones, Mike Patton likes them too.

I play the banjo, and I somewhat know how to play the Harmonica.  I never formally learnd it, but my daddy taught me when I was back living in Flordia.  Whenever we had company over I would always play.

I play bass, guitar, dulcimer, banjo, a bit of mandolin, I can do basics on the drums and piano. Also,  I own a flute and a violin that I have no idea what to do with for the most part.
