    As a counterpart to that other thread started by Alvaro Martín Gómez A., I'd like to know: What additional instrument(s) (besides the bass) DO you see yourself playing? Which one(s) are you really yearning to learn?

    Since I already play four-string electric, fretted & fretless, I'm determined to learn five-string electric (fretted & fretless), plus six-string electric (fretted, tuned EADGCF). Remainder of my list:

    • Chapman Stick (bass stick and/or 12-string stick)
    • piano
    • synthesizers (polyphonic)
    So how about it? :meh:

  2. One of these days Im gonna get a fretless and hang onto it so I get good at it. I also want to learn acoustic guitar as well.
  3. I play every instruments I used to see myself playing.

    I suck at piano, so I'd like to be much better at that. Then I'd like to learn trombone and/or trumpet. And of course upright bass, I've never really had a good opportunity to learn it.

    I could also see myself as a drummer - I'm sure I could become quite good with some more practice. I can lay down a tight groove, but I can't play fills properly. I need to practice coordination.

    I play guitar too (at least as much as bass), but I haven't played guitar on a gig in years...
  5. DRUMS if i ever get the space.

    oh and not forgetting EVERYTHING else, apart from, as you wil have read in the counterpart thread, the sitar :D

    I have a mental list of instruments I want to learn at least a little of like the bouzouki (irish), nyckelharpa, english horn (should be easier than others listed as I already play oboe and bassoon), and a plethora of medieval winds/strings.

    As a music teacher, I have a certain amount of skill on a lot of instruments... I played drum set a couple times at football games last year with my HS pep band, cause I did not have a drummer... I guess I would like to get better at the drum kit... Other than that, my big desire is to play more Bass...

    :) I'm glad to be the motivator of other interesting threads.


    - Drums, inspired by Neil Peart (although I didn't know him in my early teens, when I wanted to be a drummer).

    - Trombone, inspired by Christian Lindberg and many Salsa players.

    - Baritone sax.

    - French horn.

    - Guitarrón and tuba, for the sake of widening my scope as a bass player.

  12. If I have the money, I'd like to take up the Chapman Stick or Warr Guitar. I also wouldn't mind playing guitar or drums either. As for now, I'll stick to bass.
