    i have to go with guitar, because of its versatility.

    but in different ways, all of the instruments that i play are favorites.

    what do you play?
    and what are your favorite things about it?

  2. harmonica ;)

    the only musical instrument i believe i've ever achieved anything remotely resembling a proffessional level of proficiency with was the french horn, and that was many years ago. i did also get somewhere near passibly adiquite with the wooden recorder and played in the baronial consort of three mountains up in an tir briefly in the mid 80s.

    i also built and played with the paia kit analog synth modules in the late 70s using a vox jaguare as a source. the only thing i've played with in the past decade or so are really funkey little cheap dime store non-midi keyboards, little more then toys really, but i get my fix of needing to play or practice something when it comes over me that way.
    never could comfortably get my hands arround a fret board, which may be just as well, considering my tin ear and dessonant voice.
    (those metal bottemed cans mixed nuts come in have a really neat percussive sound when played with the finger nails btw)

    i just started playing bass not too long ago, a month or so. Im doing suprisingly well, considering how long ive been going at it. I've got a bunch though, a antique sax, several hormonicas, a strat, two yahmaha keyboards, fruity loops/sonar2, and an acordian. All instruments are cool though, they all are unique with their own sound.

    I play Guitar, Bass & Keyboard (synth mainly).

    If theres anybody in the Detroit/Ann Arbor area who wants to jam, send me a PM.

  9. I'm a bass player and I love absolutely everything about it. I adore the sound of a bass, particularly that of my Rickenbacker. :)

    i know exctly what you mean - i played the piano but was never very good because i never felt it either.

    then came the decks and woo-hoo! if i can't make them sing!

    current instrument of choice: 2 x Pioneer CDJ100s + 2x Technic SL1210s + FX unit...(oh yea and the mixing deck too!)

    yea baby ;)

    I play guitar, and I like it a lot. I might take a swing at keyboard, but I don't know.

    i play the piano,violin,drum set, bells, keyboard, and pretty much any other percussion thing you can think of. I loved all kind of music when i started just sitting d0own and figuring out what i could do was fun. but now my mom has my schedule set of practice time. i come home from school homework till 4:00 piano for three hours violin for 2 and if there is no more homework left i will do drums for a hour sometime but by then it is getting late so she isnt very strict on them. so it is not near as much fun as it used to be

    Hmm, I just started playing the saxophone for about 2 weeks now. I wanted to play the sax since I was like ten. It was a dream come true when I foun one for 70€ at some fleamarket in Brussels. Its a really old one, but I'm happy!:) I also play the drums and a little bit of guitar (but thats not working very well...)
