standard tunning would be:

E
E

B
B

G
G one octave higher

D
D one octave higher

A
A one octave higher

E
E one octave higher

and it sounds really funny because all the octave higher strings are thinner than the regular ones :) like if in a regular guitar you play 3rd and 6th string at the same time , that kinda sound

I play the drums. I dont have a set at home. I would air drum and I've been doing that since I was Gr.8. I play for the Church usually every Sunday. I self thought in Piano. I also have a Bass where I just play around with it.

I play.... the piano, only a veeery little and I am learning it.... but.... yeah. I used to play a little, some years ago. Fingers still recognize the moves and that I do not, who cares. I can learn.

ive been tought how to play guitar over and over again but for some reason we just dont mix ive been playing drums for umm  about 3 years now(i have a really nice set) not counting the years i played on pots and pans (true story)
ive been playing some piano sense i was 13 or so but i never really leaned how to play properly just what key to hit but now im learning piano good.
ive played harmonica for a while but im no epert but icould play endless rain on it and i think thats all i know how to play unless you count an orcorina as something and the recorder wich i suck at both i can play cartoon therme songs on these and thats all.

I play bass.. its been almost a year now .. and a bit of drums (both instruments self-taught)
I started playing bass cos of X.. They were my real inspiration
but lately i've been playing Dir en Grey and L'arc en Ciel rather than X-Japan
cos some of Taiji's bass lines are still too hard for me.. and Heath's are too boring.. (no offense)

I absolutely agree with you. Taiji's bass lines are awesome.
Btw, I should ask you to perform some songs next time we meet.  :D

I tried studying the classical guitar like 5 years ago, but I had no inspiration then (I only encountered X Japan last year) so I had no overwhelming desire to be good at it.

Now I'm learning the Bass by myself and through guitar pro, is practising some of the Basslines for X songs. :)

I play acoustic guitar for about 2 years now, but started it back when I was about 10, stopped playing when the replacement frets(matches) fell off the guitar.  Been playing electric guitar for about a week..

Woah, first one to reply to this in over a month..

Been playing trumpet for 4 years and just been mucking around with guitar and bass for a while, nothing serious. Its pretty cool to just jam with mates bands with either of them.

Sounds like you have some funky jams going on  :D

Haha, most of the time its crappy concert band stuff, but some of the time we do sorta in the style of Cat Empire or some CAKE songs or play and old riff or the twelve bar blues and add a bit of improvising here and there when we are bored.

I'm hoping to at some point to learn a bit more jazz to just show off a bit :P

It was awesome last year, had some of my mates from a death metal band and others from a hard rock one, my best mate who plays alto sax and myself, and we covered Louie Louie, sounded bloody awesome :D

Jazz guitar would sound awesome. How are you going with it overall?

At the moment we are trying to put Hotel California -Eagles, together. On the Farewell 1 Tour, there is a trumpet solo that sounds so awesome, and its quite high at some points so its going to be a great challenge :D

I'm...getting better, really slowly, tho (I'm sure I'd be better by now if I had a teacher but meh). Actually I realized that I'm batter than I was some month ago because I stopped trying to play most of X's songs  :P

that sounds really nice, if there will happen to be some footage (audio/video) I'd love to see/hear some  :D
