    A bit off topic, but have you ever gone by the name of 'aberslappy'? There was once a bass player who primary played flute, of your age on my msn (about 2 years ago).

    Anyway, I only play bass.

    Nope, Never had another name but Vic...

    That cool most of you played other stuff first, You guys that played Trumpet should go get a crappy one, Just play the hell out of it, its fun and different.

    Classical singing is awesome, I do a little bit of Opera, and A BUNCH of play type singing... Good to get into, some of the most talented singers i know that sing in Prog metal bands took years of Opera, Jazz, Stage work, all that good stuff.

    Main instrument: Tuba
    Secondary Instrument: Electric Bass
    All others: Upright bass, guitar, flute/alto flute/piccolo, baritone, and keyboard type percussion instruments (my favorite is the marimba), and marching percussion (basses and tenors).
     
  17. Keyboards....

    ... because as much as I love to play bass,

    Keys also fit in my head well. The variety of synth sounds are wonderfully infinite, plus I love the timeless sound of piano, Hammond organ, Rhodes, Wurlitzers, etc. A polyphonic chord, in a chord progression, is a very moving, powerful piece of the sonic landscape. :cool:

    Not anymore, but I grew up on the clarinet. I quit to play bass, so I could be cool.

    It worked.;)
