Um I can't really play any instruments but I sing so I guess you could say I play my vocal cords!

By the way, for all the guitar players--there's a good sixties political folk singer Phil Ochs, he has great guitar solos, you guys should check him out!

bass awesome... as of now i'm goign to college to major in music... education... vocal... music is a huge role in my life- a means of expression, stress relieve and it's how i met my boyfriend [yeah, playing in a 'band' for pi-day ]
... back on topic...
i play the piano, flute, french horn, violin, viola, didjeridoo, pan flute, electric bass, upright ["double"] bass and i've messed with trombone, drums, mallet percussion, mandolin and guitar [6 and 12 string]... - as you can see, i didn't have many friends and i was bored when i was growing up .. suppose it worked out though...

"the thing with music: never be afraid to fail... always try, never give up..." Mr. Tourre- GLSH choir director and my inspiration to persue something i enjoy ... to continue with music, while all the while utilizing my talents... it's never to late to get involved with music... keep playing guys!

Re: ne 1 play instruments???

I play lots of instruments, although most of them I taught myself. I have been playing the piano for 12 years, and the clarinet for 7. My mom taught me piano since I was 5, and I was in band for 3 years but continued music when I left to homeschool. In 7th grade I was in symphonic band, and 2nd chair. Our band also performed in a parade that pretty much only high schoolers perform in. I taught myself how to play the flute, violin, and I know a few chords on the guitar. I also did choir up until 6th grade, but wasnt able to continue both band and choir because they made us choose one or the other.

I really enjoy music, but it is only a hobby for me, and I could never see myself going any further with it..

Re: ne 1 play instruments???

I used to play French Horn.. when I played it I didn't like it a whole lot, I mean, it was alright at the time and a great learning experience. Then I had to give it up this year to be on student council (no more classes available) and I really miss it!! Being music inflicted is the best thing in the world. You never know how much you enjoy or need something until it's gone, it's true.

Re: ne 1 play instruments???

I play the french horn (not really a normal instrument) but i do like to play it most of the time. Music is a wonderful thing and if you can play it and if you love it, then by all means go for it!! Who cares what other people think! Man, i wish i could play the guitar. I hear its hard. My best friend plays bass guitar in a band and so does my ex boyfriend and they both love it so i dont think its weird to enjoy the "music" thing.

Hey Munch,

I love music and I've played the Electric "Rock" Guitar since I was 14. It doesn't matter what instrument you play, the enjoyment you get and self-discipline you learn is like nothing else... Of course, the girls (in my case) were great too!

I didn't learn the guitar for girls, I grew up with The Doors and The Rolling Stones Yes, I'm that old
