If not, which one would you like to (learn to) play?

    I used to play the piano but that was a long long time ago. I guess I'd pick the drums if I had to learn another. That'd be pretty cool I think, with the added bonus of annoying the neighbours :D

    Used to be able to play the drums.

    Couldn't practice much...so I stopped.

    I'd like to learn more, though.

    I can play the guitar - not an expert but can hold songs together.

    I got some decks for xmas, so learning those at the moment - great fun.

    Ummm, any other instrument I would like to learn... drums I suppose. Never will though - not that keen for them.

    When I was younger I played the trumpet but gave up because I was too lazy to practice.

    I then tried to learn the piano, I was quite good but I have stubby fingers so never really prgressed.

    I then tried bass guitar but have short arms which was a hinderence.

    Tried drums too. Wish I had never given up the trumpet because I could be in some kick ass ska band right now but I'm not .... :(

    I have a tambourine though. I lend it to people I know when they play gigs and I put stickers on it and take it to festivals for a laugh. I am quite good.... :) :rolleyes: ;)

    I use to play the violin years back ,wasn't much good though. If I was going to learn to play an instrument it would be the piano.

    I can play the clarinet to Grade 4 level, but I haven't played since school because I had to borrow the instrument from the music faculty. I might buy one when I'm older and master it. I'd like to learn to play the saxophone as it's really cool, and it would be a safety net if I ever got homeless hehe.

    I cant play anything at all, I can't even read music either! :rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I used to play the violin, but I soon gave that up because of all the screeching I made on it.:D

    Learning how to play the piano, but can't practise that much so I wants my own piano, hopefully for my 21st. Hoping to sit my grade 1 in June as well. Would like to learn the accordion as well.

    Can play the guitar a bit. i'm currently taking lessons. It's come as a bit of a shock to me that I've been doing things wrong, but i'm prepared to keep at it. I've played the piano/keyboard in the past, but I haven't been doing much of it at the moment.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I can play the decks if that counts?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I reckon it does
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I can play guitar, bass, keyboard, piano, used to play bugle and trumpet. :yes: I wanna play them all better. :D
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

    i play trumpet (about grade 5 now i guess, maybe a bit higher)
    i taught myself clarinet but dont know what the notes are (ie i played by ear)
    i had piano lessons but was rubbish so i stopped

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I also used to sing and have sung in front of Andrew LLoyd Webber. :D

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I've been playing Viola for 9 years now, drum kit and percussion for 7, taught myself trumpet 2 years ago, a bit of keyboard (does recorder count too?). What I really want to lear now is the sax (if I can stretch the old student loan further) so if anyone knows any good sax teachers in machester PM me.
    Damn, this makes me seem like some marching one woman band!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    *has been accused of blowing my own trumpet*

    Does that count ?

    :D
  • JsTJsT Posts: 18,268 Skive's The Limit
    Even the recorder was above my level... so take that as a no :p
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I started playing the piano when I was about 13 but gave up lessons cause I was too interested in computers.:rolleyes:
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I used to play the violin when i was younger. I would love to be able to play the guitar though.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
