What instrument(s) do you play? (or did play?)
« on: February 12, 2017, 11:43:33 pm »
I haven't noticed a thread like this on here and I'm currious to know so why not?

I only play Piano and I Sing as well.

I've been playing piano since I was 8. (maybe even a bit before since I liked just hitting random keys when I was little XD)
I've been singing for a while as well but I truely didn't start until Middle School when I joined choir. I haven't taken private vocal lessons, however I've been just fine. [Edit: I sing Tennor right now btw! I've been told my voice is a Baritone though. Which is between a Tennor and a Base technically (but I like hitting higher tennor notes than lower base notes)]

I'm not too good at doing both at the same time I'm afraid though XD I can accompany a choir but I tend to not do good at singing and playing piano at the same time. (how people do it I don't know...)

Personally I can play any woodwind, any of em. Though sheet takes time to relearn. And I'm learning how to play a Anglo Saxon Harp, and poorly attempting the mandolin.

I play violin! I can write sheet music too, but I'm better at arranging, especially for quartets. I've played......since I was 5?

I also love singing, but I'm no professional <X3

I want to learn piano! I'm pretty good just dabbling around on it tho

I play electric bass, ukulele, and used to play trombone. I mostly make up or copy other jazz bass lines based on chords, but I also do sheet music if I need to.

I play the guitar, ukulele, bass, and piano. I may be picking up the flute, banjo, and ocarina. I can't sing to save my life, however.

I'm getting to be passable on the guitar and ukulele. I pretty much just play Walking Dead songs and The Last of Us. I'd love to get a silent electric violin.

Guitar, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele (even though I never really play it -- I pretty much taught myself to play it in a day because I was bored LOL)! :fox-:): I guess I can add bass guitar into the mix too because if you can play a regular guitar, you can pretty much play a bass guitar.

I have a Dean electric acoustic guitar, but I've never been able to play it. I tried learning a few chords awhile back and I even tried to learn the song "Horse With No Name", which is said to be one of the simplest songs to learn for beginning guitar players. After trying it for some time, I became extremely frustrated. I listened and watched the lesson on YouTube for and I still couldn't master the beginning. It sounded off and I had no idea how it sounded so wrong. My guitar was in tune, and as far as I'm aware, my guitar has no problems with it. I soon accepted that it was my fault. No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get it right. I actually tried it again awhile ago and I still had no luck playing it. I'd like to learn how to play it, but it's hard to find the time to learn it and I feel that I wasn't born with the gift of music. I can't even play one of the easiest songs on guitar which is very discouraging to me, especially as I see so many people playing the guitar so flawlessly.

Tuba, Bass, and Acoustic Guitar. I can also decently sing.

So I saw some chords on a website. The chords I saw, at least, are pretty hard. D6/9? Dmaj9? Em9? Didn't know these chords even existed tbh. Try starting out with songs that have simpler ones, like Em, E, Am, A, C, D, and G.

I was in a small orchestra and played as main bass for concert, and occasionally I played back-up during practices. I later picked up on electric and quit classical (even though I still love it today), I later played in a alternative rock band and a metal band for a few months then quit again. I still have my electric in my room, and sometimes I play a few tunes on it..But honestly I'd rather pick up on stand-up bass if I had the chance

-However I was going to audition for a mariachi band, I never got up to it

I also was in choir for four years, but later quit because I thought I was too good (plus I had to finish a few courses over the years)

This is why I despise guitar so much, I can probably easily pick up on it now that I've played bass for a decent amount of years..But I remember trying to play electric in the past and failed so badly, I easily got frustrated and quit as well-Will most likely never touch a guitar at the moment..Maybe in the future

You can try bass for starters, it can have up to 4-6 strings and is fairly simple to play-The strings are thicker than a guitar's

now that I've gotten one, I've found that the piano is very fun. I'm not that good but I can play some of the simpler Zelda songs.
