Does anyone here play more than one instrument?

I've been playing drums for almost 5 years now. Lately I've been considering picking up another instrument or 2. I've thought about the guitar, the piano and the harmonica. Of the 3 I know the least about the harmonica, does anyone here actually play one?

I've played the trumpet since 4th grade...the guitar for almost 3 years...and I'm learning piano since I've come to college, so about 4 or 5 months. I know you buy harmnicas in the key that you want and just wail away....I think you can also buy a chromatic harp but that must be hell to play.

The only instrument I'm really proficient at is piano (been playing 11 years), but I'm almost decent at guitar . I can do rhythm and fingerpicking - I've yet to try an electric, though.

I can do violin and viola. I ca play piano but it takes me FOREVER to read the music and whatnot, so I'm really bad. I can play a few things on cello too. The cello was learned out of boredom when the orchestra I toured Europe with was marrooned in the Italian Alps for a day and we had NOTHING to do. good times.

I can't play any instruments. I'm just a singer.

I play guitar, bass, drums, piano, harmonica, and I sing. I also write music. I have taught myself how to do all of them, and I must say, I have done quite well. I have recorded a few solo songs of just me playing all of the instruments, they have turned out very well.

I play Clarinet (the only instrument I've been taught how to play), Tenor sax, ocarina, guitar, bass guitar, double bass, violin, harmonice, drums, percussion, latin percussion, trumpet, spoons, keyboard, recorder, french horn, tin whistle, but guess what? I cant sing to save my life.

DRUMS!!!! It's all about drums!!!
I play guitar(badly) and sing (OK), my husband plays bass (extremely well) and owns a PA and van, my middle son is playing very good blues guitars these days(he still prefers metal, but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em) My youngest son has a gift and won't use it.....YET. He has the most beautiful long fingers and picks up a tune on the guitar in an instant.
But what we really need is a drummer (need as in want, to fulfil my dream of a family band....hub's worst nightmare!!! )
So I have a hankering for a drum kit...BAD!!!I have nowhere to set it up and no money to buy it...minor detail
There was a Ludwig kit, blood red, 2nd hand in the newspaper yesterday me want drums.

I think piano/keyboard would be a great instrument to learn JS. So versatile.Hub repairs instruments and equipment for the local high schools(steady work, some kids are born vandals it seems)So I usually have me a little go of whatever crosses his bench. Yamaha clavinova this week, they are nice.

Hub has played with a couple of very talented harmonica/harp players over the years.Great instrument, as long as you can find their off button and they don't overplay( harp plaers seem slightly prone to that)After a show, hub would be still packing up all his huge gear and risking getting a hernia,while the harmonica player would be out the door with his little case of harmonicas and off to a party in no time.
We have an annual east Coast Blues Festival near here. It is becoming a huge event. They now have a harmonica playing contest attached to it. Wild. see ya there some day JS, have fun

That Ludwig is still in the newspaper for sale, can't afford it

but I talked about it with the family We decided we would all save and buy a much cheaper basic kit as a family Christmas present (that and TTT, wonderful, but no time for fainting today )

as per usual father and son #2, thought right, she's committed to spending $$$, so it will happen and as per usual, they made a decision without me...soooooooooooo
What am I getting a share in? I have no idea. I don't think it sounds near as much fun as a drum kit, maybe I should learn harmonica too....lol, lotsa wind, well not really, not anymore....hmm may be a great idea, lung exercise, may be on to something there.
anyway we get Venue Music catalogues throught the post( damn things) full of temptation. The Zoom PS-02 Digital recorders are half price at the moment, so apparently that is what we are getting...hmmmm, I like my acoustic instruments...hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Funny when the drum kit decision was made, it was the younger one who was most likely to get into it, so it was going into his room. I said he doesn't need cupboards and drawers anyway, he rarely puts his clothes away. Mount Washing Tonne in the corner

yes learn an instrument....ohhh I'd like to tell you some didgeridoo news...innovative....later.

Ludwig is cool, but try Gretsch too.

I play piano, keys, program computers and samplers, rap sometimes and did a little of saxophone. I am the bongo man, too.
