Of all things I would like to learn piano. I browsed the forums and saw you play guitar. Very cool.
guitar, strumming and rolling with the punches and lics
and wailing or whaling with harmonicas under ocean, stone and mountain
or stoned on the mountain
and sinking like a stone
under water harmonicas swallow whales or wail at the riptides
ripping bones and kettling stones
all alone with a banjo
or up on stage with a microphone
or nobody to call home
no place to settle
up on the moon, or on mars
with settling pioneers
who like to settle
maybe i'll find a mandolin on my way to the stars
sit out on some lawn
on some un-named planet of Alpha Centauri B
perhaps Tau ceti, where the harps make natural sounds
with planets undescribed, atonal, unmatched by ratio
some expectant new discipline of moaning sound
the harmonics of the kettle drum
the pitch and yaw of the keys
the distorted call of the chorus
and then we'd need a tambourine woman
with swirling ships magic
tongue dripping numb and honey
boot heels clicking rhythm and against the chime
of her tambourine
and the smoke-rings ringing bells
keeping the time of the fates
for those who learn how to lose their hate
the morning is a jingling
and the old man is a-tuning and a jumping
with the coo-birds cooing
and the new birds calling
he's got em all lined up on the line
and their fretting about wandering
or just wondering
how the notes stay ringing
with a pitchfork he'd sort em out gentle
just fork up the night
the sound of the light cymbal
cybilling or lightly cymballing
humming out some kettle-notes with the hot kambucha
and purring symphonies of strings
or playing the kettle off the oven shelf
or the shelf of the lid under-ground,
playing peacenotes with some legendary sage
at the all night diner, rapped to the stage
or sagacious fool who knows the rhyme of the night
casting mystery in his runes
I watched a vid a few nights ago, a very enthusiastic and talented lady was playing two skin flutes at once.
Now that was interesting.
I'm a guitar player, singer, song writer. Out of necessity, I learned to play the bass, the drums, the keys, the pedal steel, mandolin, fiddle, and congas for recording. My recordings are all trial and error....lots of error. Here's how they came out......

Harmonica and Guitar.
Does vocals count? I suppose they would.
As of right now I'm learning to play the guitar and I might hire a teacher for guitar lessons since I'm a beginner at it. I've had someone offer to give me guitar lessons over Skype but it never worked out and haven't heard back from them. Before guitar I played the bass guitar and I had lots of fun with it.
I can play any air related instrument.
Air guitar air drum air turn tables just to name a few.
What are you like on the piano. A lot of people do not realize that it is a percussion instrument, since hammers hit the strings. LOL.
In my college days, I played the violin in the orchestra. A difficult instrument because without frets, you need a perfect ear for tone. Today I only play the piano, so simple because you just press a button and the note comes out. All you need to do is press them in the right order without getting your fingers knotted together.
I began with piano , and now having lived a long time have mastered a few others . All require perfect pitch , for
this is what you think with . Play an extreme out-of-tune piano with grace and this will be discovered .
I'd like to play with you....I've lived long too. Makes for a big repertuar. You live close to WV?
I play the guitar, drums, percussion, harmonica, wooden recorder, and I do subtle things with keyboard.
Lately I've also been training my voice more seriously as well.
I play guitar, bass, and violin. I can play mandolin but don't own one. I find them all similar in their standard tuning. The bass being the same as the four lower strings of the guitar EADG. The violin and mandolin being the same four but flipped with G being the low string GDAE. I'm more proficient on guitar but can play the others with friends and not destroy the music. Music really does make the world a better place!
I've got congas and a piano at the house also. Congas I can keep a beat with. Piano I can tinker with but not really play.
Mainly piano and guitar much less. However, I began as a drummer but more or less gave it up when I had my first stint in the navy a few years after high school. My brother took over my drums and subsequently became a tympanist with a symphony. Dad and I loved drum solos (Buddy rich, Krupa, Lionel Hampton, Louis Bellson) but once the kid was educated he would just curl the lip and say he didn't do jazz any more - only classical

Guitar, a little bit of bass and keyboards. Drums were my first instrument. I singt too. Here is some of my music
Hello , friend , just now noticed your message . The only thing that gets me out of the west and into
the east is a rainbow gathering . The national will be near WV this year June/July . It's a fine place
to dink with hillbilly jazz , echos in de' holler , drummin' on turtles .
OMG! I will go with you...you can stay at my place....We'll get some tunes together in my studio...This will be my 16th...I'll PM you.
I am learning ukulele at the moment but I also play pennywhistle and recorder.
A short list but a good start.
peace and warm fuzzies
Drummin' on Turtles? Do you stay at Turtle Soup camp? I've stayed there many times.
