    Default What instrument(s) do you play?

    Hey y'all...

    There are so many interesting, vibrant, and talented people who post here, it would be shocking in the extreme if none of you played an instrument or sang.

    So I'll go first:

    • I play violin, in a fiddlish sort of way, and
    • I have been known to break into song at the least provocation.


    I and some friends play a local coffee shop about once a month, with a repertoire that covers some bluegrass standards, a few Cuban guitar pieces (chiefly "Guantanamera") and some folky crap thrown in (John Denver, James Taylor, acoustic Beatles stuff, and so on). And a couple of originals just for fun.

    Actually, it's all just for fun.

    Can hold my own with a guitar; can hold a beat with drums; can fake my way through bass guitar. I've come up with some melodies on piano, but have very little experience. I also sing!

    I play bass, piano, and bamboo flute all really badly.

    Mainly Motown on bass. 'though I want to get an upright to play trad. folk/New Age
    Cheesy American soundtrack personal wafflings on the piano in Bb.
    I just blow into the bamboo flute until it sounds pretty. Much like life.

    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    Stuff I can play well:
    -violin
    -flute/piccolo

    Stuff I can play decently:
    -piano
    -fiddle (same as violin, only different style. I do celtic and hungarian fiddling)

    Self-taught folk instruments that I think I can play decently but have no way of judging:
    -bodhran
    -erhu

    It's been a few years since I've played, but...

    I have eight years of classical training on the clarinet.
    I have two years of jazz training on the alto sax.

    I played bass clarinet for two years.
    I've learned how to play oboe, although I never did it very well.

    I also did two years of dancerettes and flag corps.

    I don't play anymore. My son and my niece are now playing my clarinets. It's kind of cool, but since I stopped playing, my beginner clarinet has been in near continuous use (from me, to my nephew two years after I stopped playing clarinet for marching season, to my niece immediately after he finished school, and now to my son). I just let my niece start using my orchestra quality instrument last year. Unfortunately, my sax is still in a case and not being touched.

    I would like to get another flag for twirling back up here, though. It was a lot of fun and great exercise.

    We could put together a pretty good house band, looks like.

    I know Jennifer is a first-rate accompanist on piano and keyboard, and probably could make a fair concert performer if she put in the time to practice.

    I've played drums since I was about 10 and I guess I sing if I'm inebriated/alone in my car.

    I took six years of piano as a boy, and got a guitar at 13. I am no good at either, but I can make quite the racket. And I have a good singing voice and range, but I need lessons on pitch and key.
