Musical Instruments

Postby slice22358 » Tue Sep 02, 2008 9:09 pm

Well I haven't see a thread like this on here, so what instruments do you play if any?

I currently play a Fender 60th Anniversary Strat out of a Fender Vibrolux amp, and also a Seagull S6+ Folk acoustic.

Anyone else?

Wow how do you find the money to support both your guitar and spydie habit? Man I wish I could do that.

Piano, Organ, Harmonica, Mandolin, Uke, Bongo and Conga, Kazoo...If you can show me where the notes are I can play anything....some not as good as others though LOL....The Chinese have an ancient expression: " The man who cannot play a musical instrument is a man without soul" This quote was way before the term soul music was ever coined....a couple of thousand years before to be exact.... Doc :D

Started out really young on the piano, then started clarinet in middle school, then by the end of that I was a tenor sax, marched as one all throughout high school, and still am as I play for my college pep band. ;)

My Dear Friends,

I have played electric bass for twenty-three years, semi-pro for recording studios and live performance for over a decade of that time. I am currently playing a matched set of Yamaha BB300 four-string basses (fretted and fretless), Schecter 5-string bass, Schecter Omen and Damien 6-string electric guitars, Washburn electric (my favorite), Alvarez 12-string acoustic, Hagstrom classical, and Taylor Big Baby acoustic). I also play piano and drums well enough to embarrass myself.

Wow - this is going back a ways :) I used to play electric bass - mine is an American Standard Jazz Bass (I think about 15-20 years old now....), midnite burgundy (one of 25 of this color), white pick guard, swamp ash body with the neck thinned out. Yes, it went thru the custom shop :) Friend of mine modded the pickups to so it would "growl" cleaner on Low E :) I picked it up to jam with some friends for the first time in about 5 years a couple of months ago. Forgot how much I missed playing :)

I've ended up with a few guitars but I mostly play my PRS singlecut through my bogner Shiva Half Stack. Other options include my US standard Tele with Seymour duncan classic stacks, my Ltd. ed. Epi. Sheraton II with Dimarzio Classic PAFs, Custom Gibson Les Paul Studio with the same Pups, or Mexican Strat with SD duckbuckers. I also have a Fender Blues Jr. for when the Bogner is too much to haul around.

Sunburst BC Rich L.A. Series guitar - not professionally :p , but I have fun. I have a harmonica, but haven't practiced it enough to say I play it, so I'll say I "play" it.

- best wishes, Jazz.

Classically trained on piano and violin; later switched to viola. Also play bass guitar 6-string guitar--rhythm player mind you, not lead!!! and some percussion (tambourine, maracas, whatever...).

briefly took trombone; didn't like it.

piano I've continued to play all my life. Guitar and bass came later and they've been with me for many years as well...

I've played professionally in everything from orchestras to string quartets to jazz bands to rock bands to theater music (including writing & performing the music for two local plays), and have loved every minute! :D

Tin whistle! I’ve got six, best of which is a Feadog high D, although the Dixon is also good for the money. Now, if I had the money, I’d splash out on a Thin Weasel which has got to be the ultimate. I can also get a tune out of a chromatic harp. I reckon if I hadn’t been forced to take piano lessons as a kid I’d have been a really keen musician, but you know how it is, coercion is a killer when you’re young. I reckon everyone should be free to make their own choice in music, reading matter, poetry, cars, knives...
If anyone doubts there’s such a thing as a whistle nut, check out the chiff and fipple website. It’s run by people with a sense of humour.

I play electric guitar (Steinberger) thru GuitarRig3,
mainly experimental improvisation with a lot of effects,
and also midiguitar to software synth.
I also like to hear music from around the world :}

I currently have a Contreras Classical guitar, a Roca Requinto guitar, a Full set of LP latin drums and hand percussion instruments and I am teaching myself to play the Native American flute. One that I built meself.

I play drums and can fake it well enough to fool some people on the bass guitar.

I've got a nice 5-piece DW kit, an old white Ludwig jazz kit (with 18" kick), and a Roland electronic kit. I find I'm playing the Roland kit more now that there are kids in the house, plus - it's easier on my head.

Alto Sax but realistically I haven't played more than the odd note for years. Living in flats (I'd guess you'd call them apartments in the US) isn't exactly conducive to practising.
