I can play every woodwind instrument as my stepfather somewhat forced me as a child, though a nice skill to have, I don't utilize it.

I wanted to play the Piccolo, and yes it was because of Dragon Ball Z.

Trumpet. I played in regular band and jazz band in high school and played at my church for like 6 months. I haven't played in 2 years though and am thinking of picking it up again.

#17 Posted by redstorm72 (4507 posts) -

Acoustic guitar. Been playing for about a year and a half. mostly just play for fun and to sing along to some of my favorite songs.

#18 Posted by ferrari2001 (16677 posts) -

I can play the saxophone well. I'm also capable of playing the trumpet, clarinet, although in a limited capacity.

#19 Edited by WiiCubeM1 (4727 posts) -

Most brass instruments and mallet percussion, but I'm best on the trumpet. Being as I'm not in school, I haven't played the thing nearly as much as I should, but I do occasionally pick it up for a video game remix, like this one.

What's with that discoloration? I noticed it on the cymbals in high school but never bothered to ask anyone what causes it.

Piano is hard as hell. I tried to learn a little bit and gave up after like 5 hours. It's so confusing to me to play multiple notes at once even if they make sense in the chords.

Double Bass

#25 Edited by DanishSnow (67 posts) -

I used to play the french horn. Now I play the guitar and drums.

#26 Posted by Lance2500 (680 posts) -

I play guitar. Mostly electric.

#27 Edited by the_bi99man (11026 posts) -

In order of proficiency, best to worst.

Guitar (acoustic and electric)

Bass

Keyboards/synthesizers

Piano

Drums

Drums are the only one I'm not good enough at to be comfortable playing in front of people. If I actually had a drumkit, and somewhere to play it, I'd practice a lot more.

I've also been making 100% digital music for close to 10 years now. Used to do it a lot more, but in the last few years I've moved away from it, as I've been focusing more on real instruments, and my band.

I tried teaching myself how to play acoustic guitar. I didn't last very long.

#29 Edited by lensflare15 (6163 posts) -

trumpet (my main instrument) and bass guitar.

I mostly played as a child up until age 12. Then it took a back seat to tenor sax and concert/jazz band. I wish I had never given it up. It takes both tons of practice and natural talent for using both hands separately... and reading two different lines of music, in different clefs, at the same time.

The home I build will have a musically oriented space for myself, my partner and my future children. And there will be a piano.

Piano, used to play guitar but I sucked hard at it.

And I've realized that I can play bass just fine, I have no idea why since I've never taken any bass lessons.

Don't even get me near a drum though.

Yeah, Same here, Always wanted that, a good room for an acoustic piano with a huge window to look at the garden.

Well that's probably because I don't watch shitty shows.

Reminds me of the time I said that girls thought I had a nice ass and that during high school girls at my class made a "guy with the best ass in class" poll and I won. And nobody believed me because it turns out the same thing had happened in a SP episode.

None at the moment. I've never touched a musical instrument in my life, never had access to one in the first place. But I'd really love to learn how to play the synthesizer, I'm not sure if it passes as a "musical instrument" though. Anything that would make me play this:

Saxophone and harmonica.

#43 Edited by clarinetguy097 (82 posts) -

I've been playing the clarinet for about seven years, and I'm pretty good at it.

At one point, I tried to "teach" myself how to play the piano. I can play a couple songs, but I can't sightread, so it takes me a while to learn them, and I have trouble playing more than one note at a time.

#44 Edited by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -

Saxophone: 7th Grade

Clarinet: 6th Grade

I was pretty good with the Clarinet and I wished I spent a couple of more years with it, probably would be a master by now.
