I play clarinet very well.
I also play piano very well. (self taught)
I'm trying to learn guitar, but just for fun. I'm not very good at that instrument.
Does your voice count as an instrument? Because I sing.

you think that's bad Linda, I have been playing the guitar on and off for over 20 years.. and I STILL suck.. I can barely play Tie Your Mother Down, and I don't think that I can play an entire song. I have the LOVE for music, and the desire to play, but I dont think that I am destined to be great..


So, In response to the post, I play the guitar.. sort of.. well.. it plays me.. ;-)

I can't be bothered learning the guitar via books. I'd rather have someone physically teach me.

But I rather quite like playing the trumpet. I can be like the Trumpeter in 'Cake'.

Yeah I play drums, but not seriously nowadays
I used to play in bands gigging up and down the country in pubs and rock clubs but got sick of sleeping in vans in pub car parks
I play a little guitar aswell(but pretty badly!)
And I can bash out a tune on the old joanna.

I play de violin! Yay! I play pretty well. I'm going to be a professional violinist soon. As soon as I'm done with college. So yay. I also play piano, harp, penny whistle, flute, and viola. I love to play fiddle music too. Celtic of course.


Madam, you have between your legs an instrument capable of giving pleasure to thousands and all you can do is scratch it.

There is no such thing as jazz-chords (you can find all of them in classical music), jazz is a style (or actually several styles) of playing.


The are such things as jazz chords. It is just a term used to describe the types of chords which are popular within the genre of jazz. Just because you can find them in classical music means nothing. There are "rock chords" if you will, and they exist in several other genres as well.

By the way I play guitar, but my favorite instruments (to hear, not play) consist also of the piano and violin.

Just started on the bass guitar. I'm too tight to fork out £15-20 per week for half an hours tuition, so I'm teaching myself using an array of books, videos and websites. Right now, I'm fluent in all of the major and minor scales, and I can play some of 'Money' (Pink Floyd), 'Dazed and Confused' (Zep), 'Enter Sandman' and 'My Friend of Misery' (Metallica) and I can play all of 'Only in Dreams' (Weezer).

I also used to play the violin, I'd have rated myself as od 'intermediate' standard.

I play bass guitar (5-string). I have been playing in bands for 20 years now and I probably will never make it big, but I will never stop playing. Played guitar for awhile in the band I'm in now, but I'm back to bass. I think I'm decent. I can play most of the Rush catalog, including pretty much all of "Moving Pictures" on bass along with just about any Zeppelin. 2 years ago, my band recorded a CD of acoustic music that I wrote 4 songs for. That was a great time! We hope to do that again in 2005.

I've played piano since I was... seven, I think. So that means I've been playing for seven years. I always yell at my mom for not starting me a year or two earlier, cause then I might have been done with "Pathetique" by now.

I play the clarinet, cello and drums. I'm great at playing the clarinet because I've been playing it for over 5 years....I'm very good at playing the cello, which I've been playing for about 2 years..and I've been playing the drums for also about 2 years which I'm pretty good at considering I taught myself...I have a very cool Roland V-80 drum set...I used to have a regular one but, my parents and I wanted something I could plug headphones into because I had a tendacy to play drums at 11:00PM and well..people sleep at that time, except me..so I can play with this drumset at any time of the night..perfect for this night owl..
