How many members can play a musical instrument? Can you play more than one? What do you play?

And if you don't play one, would you like to and which instrument would you choose?

I wish I could play an instrument. I tried (since I was a teenager) the following: electric guitar, acoustic guitar, keyboard and violin. In all of them, I grew bored and stopped. I think I just lacked the patience to practice until I could actually play something. Most of them I actually bought the instrument (or my parents did) and it turned out to be a big waste of money. However, with the violin I was smart ... I rented one throughout the few months of lessons I took and then returned it at the end. I envy all of you who do have musical talent! I've love to hear if anyone else plays anything.

Sadly, I don't have an ear for music. In the 3rd grade my parents sent me to piano lessons and after almost a year my teacher suggested I try baton instead. Rolling Eyes

In elementary school I gave the flute, viola and clarinet a try. I didn't love playing, but I enjoy listening to classical music a lot -- very relaxing to me.

My husband has been a drummer for almost 30 years, and about 11 years ago, I asked him to teach me. Yah, I know, look at my age. We have an 11 piece drum kit in our livingroom and I have to admit, I'm really hooked. Love drumming to 70's hard rock, Rush, Boston, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC. Weird, eh? My sons bring their friends over to see the incredible drumming grandma.

This is so interesting reading everyone's experiences with learning to play an instrument. Smile

As for myself, I took piano lessons for three years in elementary school and then quit. When my son started taking lessons, I picked it up again and taught myself -- I'm not that good, but I do like to play.

I also played the clarinet during junior and senior highschool in band. I didn't really like it, but I wanted to stay in band.

Right now, if I had the time to learn to play another instrument, it would be the harp. I think that it plays such beautiful music and is a completely romantic instrument. Very Happy

Oh yes Tam I am very adept at playing the 'Comb'. Wink

For those not up with this highly technical instrument let me explain... you take one perfectly good comb with graduated teeth, slip it between a folded page of thin paper(from a telephone directory works best) & hold to your lips and kind of blow whilst making a sort of humming noise. My two personal fave tunes are 'Amzing Grace' & 'Big Spender'. Laughing

I played trombone for almost 10 years, trumpet for 3, baritone for 2, saxophone for 2, flute for 6 months and viola for 4 weeks.

I dabbled in piano, self-taught.
I was also in choir.

I miss music, but can't imagine how I sound after not having played for awhile. Embarassed But I still remember how to read music and the like.

I can fake my way on a bass guitar well enough to not embarrass myself if the audience is fairly drunk Razz

I'm much better at lead vocals--again, depending on the audience!

The drunker they are, the better I sound...

I've played classical piano since I was a little katiecakes....

In the beginning, it was largely against my will. Later on though, I was very grateful that my parents "persuaded" me to stick with it.

rofl Oh yes it is a visual feast - not to mention a joyous auditory experience.

But alas my dear as I do not know you very well - seems an awfully cruel thing to do to you!! Besides I tend to sound best after several wines and even then it can take much encouragment. Laughing

Just so you dont think I am a total nutter, I can play a little piano. I always planned to improve with more lessons... ah well one day soon.

Trained in classical piano since age 4, violin at 8, picked up bass guitar at 12. Used to be in a band, currently sing in my university's 150-person choir and I like writing my own music too. I guess I was more an artsy kid than sporty. Can't throw or catch a ball even my life depended on it.

My trombone (especially the bass trombone) was my love for awhile...until I tore my left rotator cuff and had to switch to trumpet for marching band season. Cool thing was, I had only been playing it for 5 weeks and I scored the solo. Many of the 1st trumpets were pissed off at me Bad Grin

Oh band...the drama, the unrequited love, the revenge, such a dirty game... Laughing
