Sorry if I forgot any. I play percussion and a bit of violin.

I started playing guitar in my late teens-early twenties and had a great time with it. Played casually for about 10-12 years. Then my place was broken into and my 4 guitars were stolen and that really put me off. Just recently picked up a Yamaha Acoustic and am slowly getting back into it. Starting to get the callouses back on my fingers so I'm getting there.

Love to sit down with a couple of wobbly pops and put some tunes on and play along. After awhile I start to sound waaaaaaay better than those guys in the tunes. Thats when I know its time to go to bed. :thumbsup:

Edit - I do vocals too, but you don't want to hear me. :flowers:

I learned to play the piano when I was very young, but not having one now, I stick to the alto recorder. The latter is also good for climbing houseplants.

Hi Deerslayer,

I am learning to play the drums. This happened totally by accident, but turned out to be very cool. My son wanted a set of drums for Christmas a year back... so we bought them. After a few lessons, his instructor pulled me aside and told me to learn top play with him. We both love it!

Cool poll by the way :thumbsup:

Most of the above except for brass and woodwind; I get puffed out.

I can play the piano. I've been taking piano lessons since I was a about 8. I enjoy it, however I don't like the "recitials," so I dont' participate in those. (recitals are the things at the end of the school year (piano year) everyone meets at this church and we all play a piece we've been working on for the last couple of months, but I get too nervous).

Guitar for me, I have an electric that i haven't played in years because I love playing my twelve string (mind you it only gets restrung when it really has to and usually only has eleven, the smaller G breaks in a couple of weeks.) Nice idea for a poll by the way! :thumbsup: :flowers:
I can play the drums as well but some would just call it noise lol.
...........well actually MOST, would be more accurate.

Unfortunately, I am instrumentally challenged...my husband, however, plays piano/keyboards, and my son plays an array of instruments, his primary ones being bass guitar and tuba. His skills on tuba actually got him a scholarship to WVU. :thumbsup: Guess I'll stick with a CD player.
