    I play guitar badly.

    I used to play saxophone, and would very much like to do that again one day, as well as learning other instruments, like blues harp.

    Here's a picture or two of my guitar, because i'm so enamored with how it looks and how cool it is. Please, bask in the glory of a beat up old Japanese copy. For all of it's broken nut, rutted fingerboard, scratched body and headstock charm, this is one of the finest sounding guitars I've ever played.
  7. I also play trombone and a little bit of violin.

    bass, guitar, trumpet, all type of steel drums, marching percussion, xylophone, drums (very badly), I can pretty much play anything you whack with a mallet/stick.
  12. right now it's

    Guitar-just edgeing in to be primary
    Bass-just a hair below first, so secondary
    Drums-Thirdly. Only if someone wants a scratch drum track if the drummer is late.
    Vocals-fourthly. I like singing, but I really only do it on my dog walks.
  13. sax-a-ma-phone
    lots of things with strings (strummed or plucked, not bowed)
    things you hit with sticks

    i used to play quints in a drum and bugle corp. i wish i had a set of those. that would be a great way to react to the neighbor's stinking cooking.
  14. after playing the violin for 7 years i picked up the bass (4 years ago) and i haven't played the violin ever since - it sucks compared to bass ;)

    now i like to play and drums and piano when i'm not practising my musicman :) i don't know if im actually able to play the violin after all these years playing bass every day so guess it doesnt count ;)
