I played percussion in high school. Wasn't too good at it, to be honest. But sure I could pick up the basics again.
I played a bugle in the boy scouts. I can play piano and the organ but I only know a few songs.
I play sax, guitar, bass, harmonica, piano, mandolin, penny whistle - all competently but none expertly, just enough to be able to enjoy making music.
Ugh - you multis sicken me...KIDDING! You must be very good at transitioning from fear to fluidity. I've tried guitar. I always end up back at the piano to soothe my ego. And - I could NEVER play a transposing instrument!
Actually it's not that impressive - Idon't have the goal to be brilliant on any instrument, and knowledge of one leads to a quicker learning of another. My son plays piano - learned the guitar from ukelele. Shouldn't be an ego thing either.
Lol - was kidding about the ego thing. Was my clumsy way of trying to deliver a compliment to an obviously very intelligent and musically gifted and adaptable player. Yes, I consider myself a specialist, and my OCD would make practice impossible.
Piano. The sound of piano music always reminds me of my grandmother and I continue to play both to remind me of her and because I enjoy it. After three years of practicing guitar, I still can't play much. But my best instrument is my voice.
Yes. I've been singing and playing the piano (different and separate endeavors, styles and aptitudes) since I was 5 years old - north of 30yrs.
I'm a bad-ass Air Guitarist and Air Drummer. You should see me pound my steering wheel along with Rush's "2112" when I'm driving to work in the morning.
I play guitar and keyboards for my band, Unlucky Fried Kitten, but I mostly just sing when we play live...and use musicians. I'd never say I am a great musician...but sometimes you don't need to be as long as you make the best of what you can do...and if you can create something interesting. Having said that....if I was young again I would learn violin and sax
