      Thumbs up Tell me about your music instrument playing skills!

      Personally, I've been playing trumpet for now 2 years.

      I play not only at school, but also in a Jazzband, an orchestra, in cadets and with a brass quintet.

      I practice over 10 hours per week because this is something I just love.



      What about you ?

      I played piano when I was yougn and I quit.
      Sometimes I hear some of my friends playing, makes me regret a little bit quitting piano.
      But it's fine. I like trumpet way better

      Been playing guitar for 4 years or so, but my practice routine in all that time has been rather lacking, so I'm still at an early intermediate level. I have trouble picking up the guitar on a daily basis, despite the fact that I really enjoy it.

      Tuba for six years, plus four years of trombone at the same time.

      And I suck at both of them.

      So get a guitar! :O

      You can find some really cheap beginners acoustic guitars for under $50. Just read a few lessons online about the basics and look up some tabs/chords for your favorite songs. That's how I got started, and I'm amazed at the progress I've made in just 2 1/2 years.

      If you have LIDL where you are I got a really decent acoustic guitar there for £30 with an electronic guitar tuner included.

      Let's see, I started about 12 years ago with classical cello, which I played for about 7 years. Though I don't play cello anymore, I have now been playing mandolin for 11 years, guitar for 10, bagpipes of various description for about 6 years, and tin whistle, mandola, bouzouki and a few others I'm probably forgetting off and on for the past 7 or 8 years. Oddly enough, I'm not even a music major, nor is it my primary occupation.

      I started learning Piano a while ago, I started improving but eventually stopped to persue other things. I still have some limited residual skill fom that, but only motor skills, not actual knowledge. I fiddled with guitar several times, but never really caught on. Then, for no apparent reason, 2 and a half years ago I decided to start guitar lessons at the local music store, and I'm so glad I did. I love playing, and I've been a quick learner, but I've been having trouble finding the time lately, especially once I got back to school and have been hosting an exchange student as well. The exchange student leaves tomorrow, and school should slow down a bit once I'm fully up to speed, so I should be playing more soon.

      Guitar, bass, and ukulele mostly, although they're all pretty close to the same thing so I suppose it's not that impressive. Going on 9 years now (damn). I owned a keyboard in the past but I gave it away recently. I picked it up when I was 19, but by that time I was pretty busy with college and never really devoted the time required to become proficient. Anyway, I have my eye on banjo next. Oh and with much practice my singing is becoming quite tolerable.

      Cello for 3 years, Clarinet for 3 years, Flute for 2 years - Haven't touched any of those in a very long time.

      Been playing guitar for about 8 years but don't really use it as much anymore.

      I've now delved into Synthesizers and MIDI Keyboards, also play pretty good drums on drum machines - been doing this for 2 years and love it like nothing before it. Going to be doing this for quite some time.

      Oh God, I don't even remember anymore....
      Percussion in middle school and high school, that would be about 6 years.
      Picked up the guitar 5 or 6 years ago, I don't know anymore. You assess how I do. That's the last guitar-oriented track I released, more on the way. I'm working on an album, already released a free digital EP last year, though music is no longer my career goal. I still love music of course, but I don't record or write as much as I used to. Regardless, you can find all my stuff at my Last.FM profile. Free music and all.
      I tried learning the piano and viola on my own time, but unfortunately at the same time. Naturally, all I ever did was learn how to port guitar skills and music theory knowledge to each instrument, meaning it took forever to do anything like read sheet music.
      I'd love to learn the piano regardless, though the keyboard I have is pretty low-grade. Doesn't sound like a piano, though it's got decent synth sounds.

      I've played guitar, harmonica, and jaw harp for a bit. I just started practicing overtone singing, and considering I've only started 3 days ago I'm doing pretty good. I'm trying to learn keyboard better too.

      Toy keyboards? Sounds fun. Do you play actual songs on them or just play around?

      I like playing Bach on synthesizers. I have been playing keyboard instruments for 12 years and I have recently been focusing my attention on contrapuntal and polyphonic music because to me it's rather complex and much more challenging than typical piano stuff like Mozart or Beethoven, but by no means am I understating these composers because their works are difficult in their own ways. Recently I have spent most of my time learning fugues from the Well-Tempered Clavier. I'm also half way through tackling the Musical Offering's Ricercar a 6 which always impresses me because Bach improvised this ON THE SPOT WITH NO MISTAKES for Frederick the Great!

      Both, I guess.

      For one summer I was in a band of sorts wherein I played nothing but children's Casio keyboards.

      And it's fun to try them out at thriftstores, being it's the best way to find them and the easiest way to annoy stuffy customers.
