Anyone here with a band or instrument playing abilities? - January 13th 2009, 09:59 PM

I play some instruments, but I've never formed a band. I really want to, but It's scares the hell out of me to sing/play in front of an audience, though Im getting more confident with each day.

My favorite are guitar, piano and harmonica, and I think I'm decent with them.

What about you? Do you have a band or do you play an instrument?

It'd be interesting to hear stories about your band and how it is going, and perhaps some video of you playing with or without a band?

I used to ba able to sing a ton better. I have lost my hearing pretty much due to cronic ear infections, but I'm still alright at it and would love to start a music career. I have a guitar which i don't know how to play (small handed lefty problems haha), but I'm taking up playing the keyboard (synth) because it interests me.

I'm not and have never been in a band, unless school band and marching band count. But I do play an instrument- trumpet.

I used to play guitar and drums. I sucked at guitar but was really good at drums, I just hated my drum teacher.


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

I play keyboard, guitar and a little violin (although i'm quite rusty on this now!). I also sing, albeit not professionally or even remotely great, just mediocre. I'm not in a band, but would LOVE to form one next year at college, i think it'll help me come out of my shell and gain a little confidence.

I am not in a band. Just Concert and Marching Band.

I play trumpet, trombone, guitar (acoustic and electric), piano, and I learned a bit of drums this year. Music is my life.

Im happy to see many musicians right here
And I agree with you, glittermist, I believe the fact of playing on stage is something that definitely would gain you some confidence.
Of course, you gotta practice alot, cause it can gain you bad reputation if you do awful, too.

I'm a vocalist. I took years of vocal training, however, since I don't perform anymore I often lose my confidence in front of people and they never get to actually hear how good I am. Never been in a band though.

I would love to learn to play guitar, I'm just too broke to buy one.

Don't play any instruments, but I would like to play piano, strings/violin, drums, produce, sing, etc. I'm somewhat of a rapper, but definitely not a good one. Trust me.

Used to play violin, now i play drum kit. I have a little bit of skill in various intstruments like guitar, tiny bit of keyboard etc. But mainly it's drums.

I'm in a band called Distant Inferno. Myspace is myspace.com/distant666inferno which has our song. I don't have any videos at the moment though.

I used to play the alto saxophone. I enjoyed it very much, and I did play it in a concert. If I had the chance to learn more and play more, I'd probably do it in a heartbeat. As it is, I don't have the option at the moment. It was lovely, though.

My advice to you is to start small. Play for a person or two that you know well, then maybe ask them to bring a friend or two. Build onto the audience gradually. It will definitely help getting used to it slowly.

Good luck with everything.

Hm, I'm a member of two jazz quartets, I suppose that counts as a band, yeah? We play at functions and such anyway. One is with some guys from my school, the other was assembled by the music store I take lessons at.

I'm on alto sax in the quartets but I play piano on the side.

I've been playing keyboard since first grade, though not much formal training & I don't do it too often. I taught myself to play most of what I know (which isn't much)... but what I've learned has helped so much with my choir classes (notes, time signatures, crescendos and decrescendos, etc. etc. etc.) If I took lessons still, I'd probably be pretty good.

I play keyboard [it's my baby] and do back vocals for my sisters band, we mostly jam, nothing big.

I just stared taking drum lessons about... four months ago. So I'm not really any good yet, but someday.

I played flute all through middle school and high school, and picked piccolo up in about 10th grade.
Now I'm a sophomore in college and have stopped playing since I graduated high school for various reasons. I honestly REALLY miss it. I'll get back into it eventually. Hopefully.

I sing and play instruments. Ummm...I haven't started a band but I want to!! I can play the piano (kinda) cause I taught myself how and I want to learn to play guitar. I have been singing my whole life and I love it! Music is my life so yeah. lol. I have a few videos on youtube of me singing too (they're not very good though). I don't really like the way my voice sounds on recording but whatever. I actually have a song that I wrote myself on youtube and if you want to see it, just PM me and I'll show you it. Well, enough of my blabbering.

I play the flute and I'm teaching myself to play the guitar. I used to be in a wind band [playing the flute] and I always got so nervous during concerts and things but it really helped me knowing that I wasn't alone. At school I used to play the handbells and recorder. I loved the handbells! It was so much fun being able to play in a group like that. I think that has to be my favourite instrument. Even though your hand aches like hell after you've been holding the bell for a while!

I would like to be in a band eventually, but at the moment I worry that I am not experienced enough to cope with it. I mainly play the drums. I used to play a bit of guitar (not very good at it), and I can play the flute (have barely played in years, but I can still play all the notes, I just don't know what they are ).

Re: Anyone here with a band or instrument playing abilities? - January 24th 2009, 01:08 AM

i would love to have a musical career someday, whether it be in a band or a soloist. i can play piano good, ive been playing before i was in preschool. i started guitar a year and a half ago, and i would say im average-good. i used to know how to play the flute really nicely, then my teacher quit, so i dont remember much. i used to know how to play the violin when i was in preschool, but then i quit, so i dont remember a thing. and i sing.
i would love to be in a band, most likely the lead singer.
i would love to learn to play the drums
i would love to learn to play the violine again, or the cello maybe
i would love to be a singer/songwriter/artist/soloist
i would love to be a pianist

i play recitals sometimes. i tend to get more nervous when im playing officially in front of people i know. so recitals arent that bad because i dont know just about all of them, except like 5 people. so i wont hear from them the next day about little things ive done. i thinks its more nervewracking to get up and do a talent show per se (though i have done ONE so far), cause you see these people afterwards, and i have no idea how they will judge me.
oh well


I was a dork before it went mainstream
I am, unfortunately, very much obssessed with everything twilight
I am different, unique, I am me, and you cant change that
I WILL become famous one day, anyone who tells me otherwise is a liar

I am currently a music education student and have been for four years now at University. Here's my list (yes, I still do play all of these, fairly regularly):

Piano/Keyboard- 17 years (wow does that ever make me feel old)
Trumpet- 13 years
Trombone- 12 years
Saxophone (specifically Alto and Tenor)- 11 years
Euphonium (Baritone)- 7 years
(I don't play these few very often and am not very good):
Oboe- 6 years
Violin- 6 years

and the more recent ones:
Clarinet- 3 years
Flute- 3 years
French Horn- 2 years
Bodhran- 3 years
Marimba (and other mallet instruments)- 1 year
Drums (snare, bass, timpani, set)- 1 year

I think that's probably all.

My best advice to you about the performance aspects is:

Take your time, don't rush into it. Start off with small, familiar audiences and then work up to the bigger, unfamiliar ones when you feel as though you are ready.

Wow drey, so you started with music at age 3? Im so impressed by the amount of instruments you can play.
Do you have perfect pitch? I heard that if you start with music earlier than 6 years of age, you have a high chance of developing perfect pitch.
