    Not exactly sure what to vote for.

    Piano - 6ish years, quit because parents forced me to practice.
    Viola - 7 years, quit because I guess it got a bit boring - switched to DB.
    DB - Since Sept. Its AWESOME
    Guitar - on and off, to mess with more or less.

    Anyways, I play 3 of those currnently (kind of), so yeah...
     
  8. Other instruments besides bass: piano, guitar, erhu
     
  9. ive been playing sax since i was 7/8, somewhere around there

    Jazzin' ...Bluesin' and Funkin'

    I'm decent at guitar and drums. Not good enough to perform, but I can jam with others. I wish I was better at piano, but I'm not.:crying:
     
  13. Well, unfortunately, your poll doesn't let me choose more than one other instrument.

    Guitar
    Piano
    Organ
    Sax
    Drums
    Bassoon

    Stereo Turntable
    Radio
    Portable CD Player

    And to quote Floyd; "I blow bass".;)
     
  14. The only instrument i play is the Trombone, from when bands like Brass Construstion, The Bar Kays, Earth, Wind , And Fire brought the Funk with the Bass and the sparkle with a solid horn section. But I digress....NOT,,,,

    I can find my way around the guitar alright, nothing too fancy though. I play DB, but I'm only mediocre at that (I started fairly recently).

    I own a drumset, but that does NOT mean I know how to play the drums.
     
  16. Bass
    Guitar
    Piano
    Voice
    Harmonica
    Didgeridoo
    Alto Sax
    Hand Bells
    Organ (w/ pedals)
    Vibes

    Believe it or not, drums > me. Bass is definately my favorite and main instrument even though I've been playing Piano and singing longer.
     
  17. I also play guitar, djembe, didgeridoo, drums.. and I'm planning to start flute. :)

    I tinker with guitar, keys, and the computer. Gotta love acid for making drum tracks when you can't practice with a drummer.

    Among sucking at bass, I suck at guitar, and when I get a chance I like to play behind a drum kit, but just to make noise and be all death metal and kvlt.
     
  20. Bass...

    But also guitar, drums, piano, whatever really. And I'll croak into a mic if no one tells me not too!
