If so, what do you play? What style of music? Any song you particularly enjoy playing?
I play a lot of instruments, but mainly I play guitar and piano. Mostly blues on both, although I do a little classical and ragtime piano.
Also, here’s a neat little resource I found the other day that, if you are a musician, you may enjoy:
That is so cool! Yes, I am a musician – a singer and a pianist. I also play clarinet although not that often these days, and am learning accordion.
I play wistful soulful folk type music. Piano wise, I love classical – would love to learn ragtime.
Well, if you want to learn ragtime, I suggest starting with Scott Joplin. The Entertainer is a good one to start with. It’s a ton of fun and not as hard as it sounds.
That’s really cool, I’ve wanted to learn accordion for a long time! Unfortunately I can’t afford one… XD
Bobby: I highly recommend this website. http://www.jamcenter.com/jammachinea.html. Pretty much you just play a track and then you can jam along with it, it’s a great way to practice solos whenever you want without having to worry about organizing a band rehearsal.
Julien: Yeah, I did the same thing, pretty much. Took piano lessons for a while and then quit around age 11, and got back into it a couple years ago. Since you’ve already got a basis for it, it should just come back to you.
I’ll play anything I can get my hands on! The guitar’s my #1, but I also love my ukulele.
My collection consists of harmonicas, a maui xaphoon (basically a small wooden flute that reproduces that sexy sound of a sax), djembe, bongos, didgerirdoo (oldest instrument on the planet), flutes…and its growing all the time! Love to get my hands on a hang drum, and I will learn to play the violin soon as I think its the most beautiful thing I’ve ever heard. Music in an obsession, and I’ve never experienced anything better than creating your own.
Drums, clarinet, a little bit of piano and guitar, and oboe.
My main two are vocals and guitar. I’ve recently picked up the bass, and I dabble in keyboards.
I cover a wide variety of songs, and almost always end up rewriting a jazz version of them. I have a raspy-ish voice, so it works nicely.
My favorite song to sing.. I can’t pick just one, so here’s two : House of the Rising Sun – the Animals (jazzed up a WHOLE lot), and Roxanne – Sting and the Police.
Favorite song to play on the guitar: Design Your Universe – Epica; on bass: Hysteria – Muse.
Yes – I’ve been playing keyboards since I was a kid
I’ve been writing my own music for the last 8 years or so if anyone wants to check it out here:
