Any Musicians on Here?

Hells to the yes. In the order that I learned them, I play Viola, Violin, Bass Guitar, Regular Guitar, and mandolin. I also sing, so yeah, music is very much a part of my life.

I'm a pianist, played for about 12 years. Currently I'm working to record some of my compositions.

I've been playing the Piano and Keyboard for 17 years now. I'm also a bathroom singer and a beginner at playing the flute.

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

I play the guitar (although I haven't played for a long time now... I want to pick it up again, when I'm finished with my exams), also the recorder (this flute-like instrument you used to play in elementary school, but you can do many more things with it than playing hot cross buns). And I sing, I have a fairly good voice, though not much range.

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

Yeah sure
Been playing flute on an off for about 25 years (started when I was 12), violin for about 23. I played viola for a little while. I also started classical guitar 2 years ago.
Music is probably the one thing that keeps me going

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

I Hae 6 guitars (well 7 if you include the rockband guitar!!)
I have an ibanez accustic, ashton accustic, both with electric options
ashton bass, soon to be another bass, plus an ashton blues guitar, kind of similar to like bb king styled, an ibanez rg320 l. Oh I'm a lefty too !!!
all my guitars are lefty except for the rockband guitar argggg

I love music ,mostly anything good like 50's 60's ,70's and 80's ..
blues, rock ,rocknroll ,acdc, deep purple . love the doors , hendrix, joplin
johnny cash, buddy holly and chuck berry .
love radio and work in radio , community based but been a dj since i was 13 ,
If im not playing video games im listening to music or talkback radio..
been in and out of bands all my life, had one album that no one ever heard of, and in a duo band at the moment, we write and play our own songs and gig when we can, which is freaking hard cause no one wants bands ,even when we say we'll play for free!!

they all want the dj's! go figure!!
but I just do it for fun...love music.. i hate tv, ... its hardly ever on.

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

That's awesome! Music is very much a part of my life (sometimes the only reason I get out of bed in the mornings) so it is awesome to see such love for music basically everywhere I go!

I've played piano for about 10 years now (and I am still not that good at it) and I started percussion like 4-5 years ago... The school I go to currently doesn't have a band so my parents are doing private lessons for me, but it isn't the same as playing with fellow musicians. One thing I really like is a band camp I go to over the summer (because everyone there absolutely LOVES playing their instruments and could have a year-long conversation with you about it if you had time to sit down and listen) .

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

Can I ask an irrelevant question? I don't think it's worth a whole thread of its own. If you're a girl in a relationship with another girl, and you play the guitar with your fingers, what do you do with the nails? I'm thinking of growing mine out, but it will be inconvenient, for obvious reasons...

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

Nedussa, Im a guy and I grow my nails out,well at least I try to!
its great to have different tones .,like really bright feel when playing with a pick
but if you want to get down and bluesy or clasical etc fingers are the best, at least for me
but I usually only keep my left hand (strumming hand) long ,right hand doesnt matter so much !!

Re: Any Musicians on Here?

I DO!! percussion in the school band, mainly bass/snare/cymbals but also things like wind chimes & xylophone. then i somewhat play piano, i started when i was 5 & quit when i was 11, now i teach friends how to play certain melodies & getting the pitch/tempo right. but i mainly play ukelele, it's what i'm known for right now. i play alot of indie/old songs in public, but i'm secretly working on a spongebob medley, as well as a steven universe one.
