    You said something? *points at avatar*
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

    very very witty. i guess the question is more directed at the song writing aspect cause i can play and sing but my writing always lacks emotion-the kind of emotion people relate to

    Oh thank you.

    Answering the original question. Yes. I'm a singer/songwriter as well, but my problem is when I try to do emotion, I do too much of it. It turns out very whiny and depressing, so I steer clear of it.

    Not to mention it's completely insincere, and music should never be insincere.

    Tallulah is too.

    Not me though, I got a keyboard and I made some attempts to playing instruments, but I pretty much such ass. I am a-rhytmic, I have absolutely no auditory memory, and I can only play some stuff which I have studied into my soul very hard. And I then have to keep playing it or I will loose the ability to play it. :<

    I think maybe the frustration comes from trying to write F-type songs. I think it's possible to write songs people relate to that aren't saturated in feelery language, ala Tom Petty.

    Oh, I thought this was about famous ones. I was thinking of Frank Black of the Pixies and David Byrne of Talking Heads, but they could be ENTP....

    Anyhow, I've known INTPs who were really into music, and at least one INTP musician.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    Can't say I can think of any INTP musicians, but I do know NTPs are more than capable of writing music. Comedic musicians (Jon Jajoie, Weird Al, etc.) are usually ENTP.
