Any other musicians here?

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

I can play guitar and drums. I play mostly blues stuff though. Any suggestions on how to improve?

i play the bass and am starting to learn to play the piano. I used to play the piano but stopped when i was 12 so hopefully it’s just a case of re-learning. also dj and produce.

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.

Heey! I play piano… I’m more of a classical style-sheet music following musician… I’m about to go for my grade 8 piano exam :) hoping to continue with the diplomas later on…

Played piano when I was young, now I mostly play guitar. I’m not terribly good either, but I enjoy messing around on it once and a while :]

I play guitar. I seemed to pick up a more bluesy tone somewhere along the line. :)

I play guitar and keys mainly. I like playing pretty much all types of music though I’m majoring in jazz studies. All you blues guys should check some jazz out. Miles Davis always said jazz was just blues with a shot of heroin.

Drums, clarinet, a little bit of piano and guitar, and oboe.

I sing, play piano (jazz and classical), sax and flute. I also love playing about with random instruments, like a hurdy gurdy one time.

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.

I was the lead guitar player in a band for four years. Stopped because the heavy life of concerts, traveling and lack of sleep became too much.
