You don't wanna hear that, believe me..or it's rather ME who doesn't want you to hear it :wink: In 6 years or so, I'll share something, I promise, hehe.

Yeah, myuu, have you started playing acoustic or electric guitar?

Haha, i mean when you're pro, saying you're self taught sounds so much more um....awesome :P

Not even just a little clip? One chord? Scale? Something?!

I don't know, you're right but I'd rather already be awesome at playing WITH help than lousy without.

One chord sounds fair, I'll play two in a row if I'm in good mood  :P  Nah, just take a look at your pms every once in a while, maybe you'll soon find something  :wink:

well I had a long time no development at my playing because I hated to play everytime classic (I like classic, but not EVERYTIME) so I practiced nothing for the lessons..
Since a half year I'm developing my playing better than in the last 3-4 years I think lol.. I've started playing by ear, making piano cover songs of videogame melodies and original rockband songs :).. Makes a lot of fun!

The guitar is developing a bit slow but ok, because I prefer the piano but I'm going to practice more when summer vacation starts :)

hey friday,
you can see something here,
but the videos are few months old.. I'm practicing since 3 months like hell. The posted songs now sounding much better than they do in the clips.
Now I'm waiting for my new piano, which arrive in 2 weeks :)

You would have found what love is
For now I will try to live for you and for me
I will try to live with love, with dreams,
and forever with tears

Finally I have a chance to do what I've wanted to do for a couple years now, I have a chance to take Cello lessons! I'm really excited, IMO cello has the most beautiful sound in the world.

I've been playing the violin for 13 years; not exactly the most 'rock friendly' instrument out there despite what the likes of Sugizo can do with it.

I also have a guitar (which I can't play), although having only four strings on it doesn't exactly help my cause.

The mandolin is another instrument I one day hope to play.

I play...

Drums - 5 years
Piano - Difficult to say really. I played it for about 2-3 years during high school, and then was forced to give it up until recently.
Guitar - It's only an occasional thing. I'm not good at it.

I play drums every week though. Can't get enough. xD

Mostly though, I use recording studios to record, mix and master other bands, and use music software on my laptop to either edit (after mastering) or to create my own digital compositions.

I have played piano for 25 years with a recent 8 year break, but I'm playing again and
I started clarinet in grade 6 and just started again this year. 
My oldest started guitar this year so it's a bit loud in our house.
I don't know what my neighbors think but I haven't heard any knocking on the wall!   :D

I used to play drums, don't really have the time or space to do so nowadays unfortunately :( I hope to get back into it one day.

My main instrument is guitar (electric, acoustic, 6/12, etc).  I took lessons for three years and then went out on my own.  I've been playing, oh, 20+ years now.  However, I probably sound like I've been playing for 20 minutes  :D

I played bass in bands in high school and college.  I played drums on my own recordings (had a MP3 site up 10 years ago) but my skills have gone to s***.   I dabble with the keyboard as well.  I first started with the saxophone but probably couldn't do much with one nowadays.  I have a harmonica around here somewhere, too.

I recently started taking voice lessons to improve in this area as I've never had confidence in my voice.  That will change...hopefully....

 :)

My main instrument is bass, which I am self-taught at. Been playing for five years or so.

Guitar on the other hand, which I play around with on ocassion, is a totally different story. I can play pretty simple stuff, but anything involving chords, not so much.

I played the piano until high school. I really miss it, but I didn't have the time. Maybe I'll pick it up again someday.

I tried learning how to play guitar, and but it turns out my fingers are too short to play barre chords! They can stretch just fine, but my index finger just isn't long enough. Maybe I'll look for a model with a thinner neck or pick up a 3/4 guitar one of these days, but that was really frustrating...

So now I just sing karaoke and play Rock Band whenever I get the chance. =P
