I've been a singer for years (mainly chamber choir-type stuff, with some forays into singing with rock bands and singing for weddings), and used to be a very proficient pianist.

I majored in music and gave an hour-long piano recital my senior year of college, but haven't played for some years now. I can't play any of the pieces I used to know, but slap some music in front of me and I can play it. I get roped in to plunking out notes for choir from time to time, and it's a relief to know I CAN still play, I just need to get back into the groove.

I really miss playing.

I also played French Horn in junior high and high school. I don't miss that.

I've played the guitar for just over eight years and the bass for two.

An Cat Dubh/Into The Heart! (Sorry, YouTube's video compression stuffs with the audio quality.)

EDIT: Oh, so we can embed stuff now? Cool.

Thanks, pf. I've been debating whether or not I should record a video of Shine On You Crazy Diamond (pts. 1-5), but nftube would own me in every way possible. Check that guy out, he's insane.

I'll look him up, but you should do it anyway. That song's stellar.

I have a black Flying V that I should probably play more often. A trumpet, too.

Thanks! It looks nice, but it's a piece of shit actually, heh. I want to sell it to an unsuspecting teenager. I much prefer my Strat...

Truth! I'm hopeless at slapping and popping, though. I need to take some lessons...

That's awesome, GibsonGirl!

I play acoustic guitar and the piano, and can very horribly play a few tunes on violin and the flute. My musical background has been mainly vocal and piano, although I haven't been a part of a choir or had piano lessons in many years.

I took guitar lessons at a local community centre last year, and it was an incredible price, with a fabulous teacher. I'm hoping to take the next level in the fall.

Yeah, I can't do any of that fancy stuff. I can play without a pick though, so I sort of consider myself able to play bass

Strats are awesome. that was my dad's main axe for a long time though he recently just got a gorgeous all black Telecaster. I love my Explorer but sometimes I'm a bit jealous...

I also have a Fender Squier which is the cheap version of the Strat for anyone who isn't familiar. it's cream and white and left-handed so I string it backwards...I'm like the reverse Hendrix i have an acoustic too

i'm jealous of anyone who can play piano. I'd love to learn sometime. I had lessons as a kid but wasn't disciplined enough.

Saxophone, focus mostly on soprano
Guitar
Basic piano playing, mostly use it for composing
Some shit harmonica playing that I throw in once in awhile when I'm feeling folksy haha, I need to meet someone who could actually teach me to play it well.
