    I'm an amatuer basically. Play an hour or two daily.

    Guitar and keyboards (mainly synth).

    If anybody in the detroit area wants to jam, send me a PM.

    I used to play the drums. Now I don't have much time anymore. I was always more of a singer though.

    I took lessons on the piano for 8 years and I really enjoyed it and I used to want to be a professional pianist. But I haven't played in a while, mostly because I don't have a piano anymore.

    I also played the clarinet and the saxophone but I didn't really like them.

    Right now I am learning how to play a djembe drum.

    When I was a kid, my mother practically forced me to take piano lessons. It lasted for a couple of years and I hated it. :D
    I play guitar a little bit. I've learned by myself (with a little help from my ex) so I'm not very good, but it doesn't matter. Mostly I'm just playing the bongos! :D
    But no, I'm not really a musician. I just enjoy music in it's all forms. :)

    I play a tiny little bit, sometimes. On guitar I used to be able to play parts of songs from deftones, black sabbath, and the offspring, and the star spangled banner. Now I can only play one part of the offspring song and was just taught a chord a few weeks ago. On the kayboard or piano I used to be able to play some nursery rhimes, a tiny part of some classical things, and the theme song from the old pink panther cartoon. Now I can only play the pink panther theme song, mary had a little lamb, and a few tiny parts of some classical things. When I was in the fourth grade I learned how to play the recorder and in the fifth grade, the bells. both of which I don't do anymore. Seems like a lot more than it really is.

    I play the guitar daily. I have 2 electrics, 1 acoustic, bass, lap steel, mandolin, harmonica and an electric piano. I like to mess with the drums but never had my own set.

    I guess i am more of an artist than a musician.

    which is another way of saying i am too lazy with too little time to be technically proficient, but i have still written an immense library of songs, most of which i cannot usually remember... there are about 30 that have been cycling through my head recently and i am trying to find time to get my solo stuff down. I play what i might refer to as gothic blues, gothic style bass, played in and out of distortion, in bluesy sequences while wailing out socially and philosophically relevant lyrics... i am frontman/sometimes bass-player for a band, Act of Confusion, and we are on i think the link is on my profile, but the 1 song hasn't been transferred from the now-defunct yet, and its really not representative of what we are doing now... we just self-produced a cd, but i am still trying to find a cost-efficient way to manufacture it... when i do, i will give it away fro free, just so people can hear.

    *sigh* there is just so fucking much on my plate right now... but whose fault is that, eh? *points at self*

    much love :)

    I have been playing viola for almost seven years, and drums for two years. I also consider myself to be a good singer, although I don't really practice that on my own time (except when singing along with songs).

    I guess I'm a band camp kid! I've played the cello for nearly nine years and I'm in a couple of orchestral groups. I took up the bass guitar four years ago to help the school band out, and I fell in love with it as much (if not more) as I am with the cello. I'm in a symphony band, and a rock(ish) band with some of my friends.

    I've been playing guitar for two years I think. I'm starting to write stuff now. I can't read or write real music, havn't learned how to do that yet.

  20. I play the drums like it's going out of style! That's not to say I'm any good... I'm actually pretty sucky, but it's alright because I feel connected to that instrument. Playing has made me love every type of drumming, from bongos to tablas to kongas and such. I love it because it reminds me of a heart beat, and that's what everyone has or once had. Makes me feel connected to everything when I play it.
