So... As I just discovered that fallen plays lotsa instruments and I know other people must do too...

What instruments do you play/own? (If any)

I play piano at grade 5, *hugs her pretty clavinova* also recorder, steel pans, some guitar (though I suck at it) and I sing (all ungraded). I also have a passing knowledge of quite a few other instruments.

And in a couple of weeks im getting my lovely new bass! biggrin.gif Yay! biggrin.gif

ANd I can play the very very beginning part of Oye Como va by Santana.... so.... yeah. I suck.

Behold, my baby:



In the next three or four semesters I'll have to learn to play every major woodwind (clarinet, relearn oboe, bassoon, saxophone), brass (trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba), and string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass).

Currently, I know flute extensively and piano for as much as I could stand to take lessons. I had to take Class Piano anyway, so I had to put up with it all last year. Actually, darkx (one of narth's other newbies) called me after my piano final while people were still taking theirs (we had to play in front of the whole class...eek!).

I have a few recordings my uncle made with me for Christmas last year. Same trip when I about broke my fingers when they got shut in a car door. Good times...


Me and.....me. Not great, but not terrible.

The better song, but not better playing....it's amazing what you can do with bum fingers!

Is the first one double-tracked or is someone else playing? And if someone else, which is your part?

Marsyas....... I think it would be crazy to try and learn all of those instruments....... I mean why don't you just stick with a few and try to get good at those...... What would be the point of learning all those instruments, buying some of them, and then if you wanted to be good at those.... Pratice hours and hours a day?

Btw I play the piano... (I hate it), cello, bass guitar, guitar, drums (I really suck at those...) and yea... that's pretty much it.

It's not that stupid, seeming as if you know the treble and bass clef you can read all music and if you can get a sound out of them you could.

I'm in school to be a band director, so in order to teach the kids how to play all of the instruments and get them started before they [hopefully] take private lessons, I have to know what I'm doing on those instruments as well. Nothing like having a middle school band director that isn't up to par on your instrument that tells you something wrong right off the bat. Took me years to correct something that I was taught incorrectly when I first started playing. Ugh...

I get to rent the instruments from the school, which isn't a bad deal. I think there might be a small class fee, but nothing huge.

In the next year and a half I get to take Advanced Woodwinds, Class Brass, Advanced Brasswinds, Class Percussion, and Class Strings. I've already gotten Class Piano and Class Voice taken care of, thank goodness.

It's all me on two tracks merged into a duet. It was a solo that my first teacher had copied out of a book for me, but I never found anyone else to play it with when I first got it, so I just put it in my big binder of music. I always thought it was really pretty and I needed a filler song, so I thought to myself, "Self, why don't we see if we can do a duet with ourselves!" So I did...

Thank you for the compliment though...gave me a big smile. smile.gif

I don't.

But I really want to learn to play the Cello. My favourite type of classical music is always string - in particular Violin and Cello.

However, I can't afford to buy the instrument and to be quite honest on my list of things to get credit for - it's not near the top... sad.gif

I play guitar. Badly, I think. I stopped for a long time but have recently taken it up again, and all-too often play 'Stairway to Heaven' at the moment because it's lovely.

I'd love to be able to play piano and violin, but right now I'm particularly wanting to play bass. What stops me is a) money and cool.gif I like singing while playing, and that works nicest with my semi-acoustic.

I'm fairly proficient at the tuba, can muddle out some crap on the trombone and am currently learning piano. Woo hoo!

One of these days, I fully intend to learn how to play the baritone saxophone and maybe the drum set.

I play the trumpet. I have been doing so for nine years. Although, I would like to learn how to play the clarinet.

My trumpet is a silver Stradivarius LR-25 series I believe. It will be ten years old this year.. biggrin.gif

I've been playing violin since I was 7 and guitar since Christmas. I love them both! I want to learn to play mandolin, piano, bass, cello, viola, panflute, and harp. But the lack of money keeps me from that. Besides, I am still teaching myself guitar. smile.gif

I sing (I don't know if that counts to you but after lots of voice lessons from school I consider it an instrument).

Uhm...that's about it. I want to learn the cello and the flute but (sigh) oh well.

Oooh, ooooh, yeah! I have a cello, which I do in fact know how to play (I should be practicing right know, now that I let my mind remind me) and SEVEN Guitars. Ha. And I have a piano, and an electric drum set, and two recorders. I really only know how to play the cello. I will join a metal band and be the first person with cello guitar. If there already is someone who plays one, too bad. I will still be the first.
