What other Instruments do you boys and girls play?

  1. I've heard alot of you talk about playing other instruments in various threads, so I thought it'd be cool if we could bring them all together.

    My story isn't very interesting, I played Piano for about five years, quit that and played classical guitar for a little bit until I found the bass...

    I'm sure yours are alot more interesting, no?

    weeeel,,, my daddy bought me a guitar (6 string). It was a cold christmas that year In the went os Scotland, and it was a surprise present. now, I am still unsure whether they thought that i would be able to sit down at it and play loads of chords and stuff, but i couldn.t. my dad said he's show me, He has broken all of the strings by lunch time. I was 5. and because of my lack of natural aptitiude i would get no other chance with an instrument untill I became and angst ridden teenager. and i got my bass. it was happy chrstmas, and this year santa gave me a fretless, mmmmmm

    Drums. 5-piece Sonor.

    They're good fun, but heavy, loud and expensive. More heavy and loud, and I live in a poorly-planned (the houses are all a stone's throw from each other) neighborhood, so that limits practice time.

    The bass is good fun too!

    I play guitar in a band (first gig 17th Nov spam spam lovely spam) I play electric acoustic and have a cheap classical. I do a bit of slide on the acoustic mainly in DADF#AD. I play drums in my 'studio' but not live. I got given a Premier Olympic kit so my sons could learn. I learnt to play as I was too stingy to pay for lessons. My youngest has been playing since 97 and he's only ten now. My oldest boy just picked it up again. He's 13 and a lot of his mates play in bands or are learning guitar etc.

    I have a harmonium but can only play a handful of root chords on a keyboard. And finally.. I like percussion (cabasa's guiro's shakers tambourines etc).

    I am however a bass player.

    I play drums, guitar, and keys well enough to write or record, but no way in hell will I get on a stage with those instruments. I wouldn't survive the impending onslaught of rocks and garbage!:eek:
  9. Years ago I played in a marching band: lead drum, bugle, cavalry trumpet, bass drum, drum major...not all at the sale time, though ;)

    I know 6 chords on the piano, can play 12 bar riffs on guitar + a few chords.

    That's my lot.:D

    Aww, drums are cool.

    Other instruments I neglected to mention (in order of skill): piano (great for fundamentals and soloing), `ukulele, guitar. Those last two are interchangable. They're both nice and hard.

    I also play guitar, penny whistle, low whistle, mess around on the bouzouki, and a little mandolin. Though not in the past three months. Probably a little rusty now.

    In jr. high and high school, I played tenor and baritone saxophones. My mom played a 12 string guitar and my dad played a banjo, so I dabbled in both of those growing up, but I laid my hands on my first bass when I was 14, and haven't concentrated on any other instrument since! :)
