Do you play other instruments?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by subsonic87, Oct 9, 2005.

  1. Hey, anyone here play other instruments besides bass (yeah, I know you're thinking "there is no instrument besides bass)? I myself play balalaika and tinwhistle ("feadog" if you want to sound Irish), and, of course, I dink around on my friend's guitar sometimes when I'm bored.
  2. I play jazz piano, guitar, bass, and erhu.

    Bassoon; (Major inst. in college)
    Drums (+misc. percussion)
    Guitar (mostly chordal background)

    Played Sousaphone in high school marching band one year; 6-man line! Yeah, Baby!
    Played Tri-toms in marching band.
    Played, (and built), a double bass drum that laid flat like a pair of toms for marching band in college. (Sliced a bass drum in half, mounted the two halves together, made a bracket to mount it together onto a harness and tuned them at different pitches. Finished it the night before it was to be used!)

    Played BASS GUITAR for marching band at the university, one year when the Teacher's Assistant, (working on his masters degree), wrote a marching band piece for marching band, rock guitar and bass :bassist: . Now THAT was cool! Took the show to the Seahawks 1/2 time in Seattle that year! Fun! :hyper:
