I play a little bit of bass guitar and keyboards..

My main instrument is the guitar both in acoustic and electric. I've been playing for a few years.. on and off.. but it's only now that I'm actually learning to properly read music. So I'm a proud beginner all over again! ^__^


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...


Yep, definitely try getting a smaller-bodied guitar with thinner neck. Cheers and goodluck!

I've played bass since I was 13, but I didn't play it for a whole year (15-16) because I had to quit my lessons and...dunno, but I felt like the worst bassist in the world....
Last year a friend introduced me to a guy who was looking for a bassist for his band and I began playing again (: looks like I just needed a little motivation xD
I don't know much about music theory as well. Making me read a music sheet is like making me reading in russian; I have a good tecnique, so I just play, but I'd love to take proper music lessons someday.
My greatest dream is to play drums, but my parents wouldn't let me xD I'd also love to play piano later on, we have one at home but only my boyfriend plays it....

In dazzle, I was ready to be destroyed under the power, was invisible.
When I saw the truth, I heard my ghost cry...

I like to play guitar. Bass guitar sure is an interesting instrument. In my opinion, once you have mastered the guitar lick, then grab your metronome and set it to 80 bpm. This speed is very important.

I've been playing drums for a few years now. Other then that I wouldn't mind learning guitar and piano.

Haha, even though some people think Rock Band or guitar hero instruments don't count, I feel they do in a way. It requires timing skills and reading "note" on the fly which is what you have to do playing an actual instrument anyway! And the drums even more so, as you are doing what you would be doing on a real drum kit anyway? :P

I learnt to play Alto Clarinet in high school, played for 5 years...that was 6 years ago and as I rented the instrument, I haven't played since :\ But I got a piano during my final year of high school and still have that. Even though I don't play often and have never had lessons, I can play reasonably ok!

I started taking piano lessons 3 or 4 weeks ago. It's the first musical instrument that I'm learning. I know that I am pretty late, but at least I finally started. I've been wanting to learn piano for many many years, but never had the time/money/opportunity to do so. Finally a dream is coming true. ;-)

Wow! I am so happy for you! I wanted to learn to play the piano since I was a kid.
When I was in the primary school, we had music lesson. I hardly understand how to read the sheet music even thought after many lessons. Then I decided that I am not the music type at all. I think the idea of being able to play and the reality is quite different. Which X song do you want to learn to play? For me it would be unfinished.

I actually showed my teacher "Endless Rain" and asked her "When will I be able to play something like this?" She was a little surprised and said that it's a bit too complicated for now, but maybe in a few months. So I guess that's what I'm going to try to play first...

Uhm...

Started with flute at the age of 4... Play guitar (classical trained) for approx 22 years now. Drums about 15 years.
Also I play some other instrumnts a little bit... piano, started playing bass-guitar about a year ago, ...
Used to play in different bands back in the days. started with Punkrock as a vocalist and guitarplayer, later switched to drums and played more Jazz/funk/blues/stoner rock stuff. Besides that I've made electronic and also chipmusic with old synthesizers and Atari computers. Sometimes with a simple GameBoy...

Yes... long time ago ;)

Oh, atm I am learning Rose Of Pain on guitar. It's such a beautiful song to play

So jealous here, everyone playing multiple instruments and such. I never learnt any instrument, I come from a small village where there was no real possibility and also we lacked the money to buy an instrument. My granddad played violin but he died soon after I was born, so the whole music thing just escaped me :( I'm kind of curious whether I would be able to learn now (I'm 35). I've been fascinated by the bass guitar for a long time. But it's a huge commitment to buy an expensive bass and then find out that one sucks at playing. :( so I am unsure whether to venture on this road or not.

Tried acoutic guitar, but I guess it's not my tool.
