    Default Favorite musical instrument?

    sorry if this has been done before but...

    a) what is your favorite instrument? im aware it is sometimes hard to pinpoint one and if you can't, pick one that has the most influence on the music you enjoy.

    b) what instruments do you play if you play any?

    c) if you could play any instrument (and quite well) what would it be?

    /*---------------------------------------------------------------*/

    for me:

    a) Fender Rhodes
    b) guitar, keyboard
    c) keyboard (just better), or possibly bass

    a.) Guitar. Acoustic, electric, classical, whatever. The more guitars, the better.

    b.) I play piano well--have been playing since I was 8, and can sight read almost anything you put in front of me. I play guitar on, I'd say, an intermediate level. I'm teaching myself mandolin, and can fake cello and bass a bit.

    c.) I want to be a monster on guitar. Piano has been a part of my life so long that it doesn't thrill me much anymore, though I do like learning keyboard techniques, etc., and I wouldn't mind learning how to play more by ear, using theory, etc. I like playing cello, but I don't know if I'd have the patience to really, really learn it. I do want to learn mandolin and blues harmonica.

    I used to play Tuba for 5 and a half years, until I called the new head band director a fat gopher (Mr. Goforth) and quit.

    Favorite instrument = Hammer Dulcimer
    What do I play? = trumpet, and the slightest bit of piano and guitar.
    I would play the French horn. I've felt I would have always preferred to play the French horn, but I have an injured tendon in my left hand that prevents me from being able to finger well on it. I can't bend the last knuckle on my left ring finger.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

    However common it may be, my favorite instrument is the acoustic guitar. (Steel-string, to be more specific.)

    I play acoustic steel-string guitar mostly, but I also play electric guitar. The guitar is my main instrument, but I also dabble on the uke, mandolin, harmonica, bass, and drums. (DABBLE)

    I'd love to play the piano.

    A. Drums, hands down.
    B. Only the the drums (10 years)
    C. I'd like to be a higher caliber musician on the drums. Up my chops and all that stuff. I wish I'd have picked up the guitar though in addition to the drums. I love electric guitar.
