What musical instrument do you play?
« on: January 28, 2010, 11:38:33 am »
I ordered a keyless Irish flute from America yesterday morning. I decided that I wanted to get back into playing music again, eventually with the aim of playing celtic music with other people. I went to a pub once where they have live improvised music and I really would have loved to have joined in. I love jamming.

I used to play the guitar a lot as a teenager but gave up after 6 years when I realised that I was only ever going to be playing the blues alone in my bedroom. I also have a mandolin but haven't ever properly learnt to any chords or scales, I just play it by ear. Trouble is that my finger tips aren't tough enough to play it anymore without being ripped to shreds!

I decided to go for a woodwind instrument so I would have more of a challenge learning how to improvise on it and to keep me interested in it.

I'm a drummer, cause it's always fun to jam on the drums and improvise fills, and there's no tuned notes to learn :4345

When I was a kid, I played piano for 2 or 3 years... only.  Left it too soon for my skill to be really interesting unfortunately.
I miss it, and I bought a Roland Juno-D keyboard to have fun with, 3 years ago, but it's taking the dust again  :45

I also have a djembe I like to jam on from time to time ^^  But playing alone is not that fun and I haven't had (or taken) much opportunities to play with other folks.

Playing music again is on my (looong looong and dusty) TODO list... :P

Have been playing the Cello for most of my life, though I stopped having lessons at around age 18. I participated in various orchestras since 1991, but stopped as I approached graduation in uni (around 2008).

Currently, I'm in between places, but I'll be sure to re-enter the hobby orchestra circuit once I have a job and am settled in.

During my studies, I started playing quite a bit of chamber music - for the longest time, I'd hated that. Now? It's the first thing I want, I *need* to restart!

I love the raw sound of a string quartet! Sounds more 'real'.

I have a perfectly good bass guitar, tuner, and instructional books sitting in my closet :-(. I think once I pick up a cheap enough amp I'll get off my lazy ass and learn how to play the thing.

I occasionally play the piano (don't get enough time to play it seriously anymore) and used to play trumpet (still got it, but haven't picked it up in ages)

Guitar and bass. Used to play tenor saxophone.

Not hard to learn (or find a cheap amp). Seriously, get off your "lazy ass" and learn! What brand/model bass?

Finally just got my irish flute today. Took ages to get through customs, although not as long as I feared at one point.

My God I'm crap at it!

Practising on beer bottles in the meantime probably helped, but not enough. I keep an empty bottle handy in case I completely lose it and forget how to purse my lips.

Still, makes it more interesting to learn ...
