    Saxaphone, piano, cello (if I had the cash), piano, guitar. I actually do play the guitar a bit, and I used to play the piano.

  11. I'd play guitar. I actually started on guitar, but then chose bass over it cause you can't groove the same way on guitar. :D

    Probably moog/keyboards or drums (if i lost enough brain cells.)
  13. Same here but i voted for the guitar since i think i would be better at that then the drums. But i would love to play guitar and drums. Drums are fun.
  14. Drums definately. I need the workout. And people in this area need either a bassist or a drummer.

    I would learn flute and start a Jethro Tull cover band
  16. I'd switch over to the dark side and play guitar, but I'd never be as happy as I was playing bass, or as cool looking. ;)

    I voted guitar, but I guess it might as well be the didgeridoo, and I kinda play both anyway..
