    Anyway, I play french horn, and I can play, but don't play regularly trumpet, baritone and tuba
  4. I play guitar.. but I'am not very good at it.. started to play violin and have been jamming on djembe and congas with good results for some months with my college's band..

    All of the above.

    I play tuba as my main instrument, electric bass, double bass, guitar, baritone/euphonium, trombone/bass trombone, flute, piccolo, and concert percussion (xylaphone, marimba, timpani, etc.).

    I can't play a reeded instrument for thew life of me... I need to work on that.

    I'm the Jack Of All Trades

    Master of tuba

    I played tuba, and as such can manage any horn. Can't play them for crap, but I can make the correct sounds. I aslo played piano for about 2 years, and recorder for about 2 as well. Beyond that, I'm like your average musician: fifteen minutes, and I can get something resembling an intentional set of sounds out of something.

    Percussion (anything but a drum kit; can't manage to get my feet syncopated quite right, but I'm workin' on it)

    before I played bass I played Drums, trumpet, sax(alto,tenor, and baritone) Trombone, and self-taught piano
    now I play

    Drums& percussion
    Bass(electric, upright, fretted, fretless)
    Keyboards/piano(though I prefer synths)
    hand drums(djembe, dumbeck, bongos, congas..etc)
    turntables(though some wouldn't consider this an instrument....Its still a musical tool)
    Drum Programming(drum triggers...synth drums...etc.)
    kazoo(I'm pretty serious here) and some harmonica(I.e I know how to make some cool sounds, and generally get around the harp)

    I can play a bunch of chords on the guitar, and I'm learning proper ways to pick
    I'm learning mandolin and I want to learn circular breathing so I could play digerido better
  11. im also a clarinet player.......
    and bass.......... and thats it....
  12. i played clarinet and tenor sax in the last 3 years.
  13. i played violin for about two years and some. i'm picking up the harmonica and i've been doing vocals all my life. but the bass remains my love.

    I play bass.

    I can do OK on guitar, play chords or melody on keyboard, and bang around on the drums.

    But playing fretted and fretless 4, 5, & 6 and fretted 12 string basses occupies most of my time.

    i could play guitar in anything except for a jazz band. i'm not that good of a soloist in a lyrical sense but i sure can shred :D

    (dream guitar rig: Parker Fly w/Fender TwinAmp)

    could play drums in anything except jazz and really fast metal or punk

    (dream drum rig: my drummer's GMS master series kit, with a few splash cymbals and woodblocks, and a popcorn snare)

    can also BS my way around banjo, cello, mandolin, and the keyboard.

    Didgeridoo here too. To bad its always in the same key so it's not very interesting for gigs.
  17. Drum kit, latin percussion, hand percussion, concert percussion, field percussion (not fieldy), tympani, mallets, some keyboard (poorly).

    i like to play around on the guitar, piano, drums, etc. when i'm bored.

    i really only consider myself a bass player.
