What instruments have you played/still play?


I played violin for 8 years,
piano for 2, and snare for 5. Other percussion as well, but mostly snare.

Listening to Guaraldi makes me wish I had stuck with piano.

None of these are like a bike. I can't just pick up where I left off. Not many instruments are for that matter.

ETA: I sang lead in a barbershop quartet for 4 years. Not sure if we're gonna count that.

I played trumpet for several years, but gave it up to pursue athletics more vigorously. I now play guitar, but only at home on the couch. I have some recording equipment, but I'm hesitant to spend the $ on Ableton.

I'm a couch guitarist too (10+ years). A few years ago I wanted a recording suite and ending up getting FL Studio. It's easy to use and comes with lifetime free updates which was the biggest selling point to me.

Trumpet for 2.
Piano for 3, still dabble every once in a while.
Guitar for 8. Still play consistently. I have a few friends i jam with. Nothing is more fun that making stupid noise with your friends.

Trombone for 2 years. Still have it, I actually greased the slide a few weeks ago.

Guitar for 17 years. Play at minimum an hour a day. Own several guitars and amps. Even rebuilt a guitar and had a custom Dumble Amp clone built for me.

Also own a mandolin. Had it for 4 years. Fun to mess around with.

I dabble at the Piano, but would like to learn the Hammond B3 organ.

I wish I had more people to play with. I can jam. As for the trombone, I hope to play it again someday, more in a funky brass band type setting.

(I was never big into playing music in church. I don't like to mix my God and my rock n roll.)

I played the cello for one year in elementary school, but lugging it around on the bus got to be a big pain in the ass, so I switched to the trumpet, which I played for several years. I was 1st chair band and orchestra. I can still pick one up and play music, but my lips don't have that built up strength to play it well. I now sound like the Mayberry Marching Band on Andy Griffith.

I have dabbled with the guitar over the years, but I really suck at it, so it doesn't count.

I had it running on my old XP machine, but the processor just struggled with multi-tracking. The tracks would all start losing time-synch. Anyway, upgraded to a much better PC, but went up to Windows 7, which I don't have software for. That's pretty much my main thing right now, I need something that works with Windows 7 and a Firepod.
