Re: musical instruments - May 12th 2009, 12:21 PM

I can play basically all tuned percussion- piano, marimba, xylophone, glockenspeil, etc. Though I have distaste for keyboards.
I play french horn, bass guitar, and a little acoustic guitar.
Also, sing, and most brass instruments. French horn is the hardest, so once you've mastered that, the rest become easier Though, I'm not as good at other brass as I am at french horn.

Those are rare dude. Also majorly cool. Please tell me you're in an acoustic band. There are not enough of those around.

Re: musical instruments - May 12th 2009, 05:26 PM

"I play screamo vocals!" There's a similar joke among microkorg players - "What type of music do you play?" "I play arpeggiator!"

I started with the violin. Then later took up piano. I developped ear problems which made me drop the violin so took up keyboard - synths (The most misunderstood instrument FYI. Especially considering anything made by Yamaha is NOT a musical instrument...). I used to know how to sing and am re-teaching myself... slowly

I do a lot of computer-based stuff too (as do most keyboard players) so that sort of streches the definition of "an instrument". It's gotten to a stage where the traditional notion of an "instrument" has disappeared, replaced with algorithms and samplers. A major step forward IMO.

Anyone play the theremin? That is SERIOUSLY cool!

I sing, usually ballad stuff like Celine Dion. I'd love to learn to play the cello and can play some things on a piano and I'm hoping to learn how to play more on it, piano sonatas are so beautiful.

I played piano for about a year. But it didn't really hold my interest.
I may get guitar lessons soon

I play the clarinet. I tried learning alto sax, but it was boring to me, so I stuck with clarinet. I also briefly played xylophone and vibrophone for a percussion ensemble (weirdest musical experience of my life), and sang alto in a chorus.
