I'd love to take professional piano lessons. And I also thought that a kazoo was ment to annoy the living heck out of people.

Your a Black cat thing. Normally black cats represent evil or bad luck, but this one doesnt. Being a black cat your probably very stolid and alone. Although your usually quiet and calm, when needbe you can be sneeky and cunning just as any cat would. People dont understnad you and judge you before getting to know you. Being outside and taking in the fresh air makes you feel better. In your little group of friends your the quiet, smart one, unless you have no friends then...nvm. Doesnt this picture rock? ^_^

I went for piano lessons and got my Grade 2 with Trinity College but then I lost interest  :sad-fox: I really think I should continue. I enjoy playing it.

Well, I've played Viola for nine years, although I've moved away from that to focus on my saxophone, which I've played for about six. I can also play a bit of the drums, although that's all self taught.

I currently sit first chair tenor in our gold ranking jazz band, and first chair in the school concert band.

I finally got my concertina yesterday. :lol-fox: I'm all happy cos it's not too different from accordion for me to play. I had to alter the hand straps though.. they were one hole (they're adjustable via a buckle) too large for my hands XD

Now I want to try and build a cookie tin banjo o.0

Nope, it works when the lid is on better. Besides, if it were played without the lid, one's stomache would do the same thing but with less resonance : P

Ewwwwwwwwww. Squire's. Seriously. If you are going to buy a fender product. DO NO BUT A SQUIRE >.< The bloody frets you can cut yourself on just by moving your hand down the sides. It's all crap. XP

Anyway saturday I'm getting my new guitar. No if and or buts. Fender Precision Bass Deluxe Special. Black with a aluminum gold pick gaurd that looks like brushed nickel.

Mine is a first edition Squire, early 1980s, when they were still hand made in Korea. It is solidly built, and the fretboard is better than a new USA Fender Strat I played live not so far back. The only thing that was wrong was the pickups and the input, but I bought some Ibanez single coils and soldered them up and it sounds nice now. Really bluesy.

I knows about music, I've been playing since bass for 10 years and I'm in my final year of a Music Technology course at university.

I don't mean to sound snotty, as I hate it when people do that, but I just get annoyed when people see my squire and assume it's some 150 quid bargin bucket reject from a factoryline.

I broke a string on my top-of-the-line, out of tune Yamaha classic guitar. </sarcasm> I got it for about $99 at Costco. lol But yeah, If you want a bad guitar player, I'm always available XD Once I get totally new steel strings, a pick, and get the thing tuned I'll actually practice for like the first time ever lol. I got it a few years back thinking "ZOMG! I wanna play guitar! that would be SO Smeggin' awesome! I can do eet!"... then I got it and almost as soon as I did and watched the instructional video, I went "What the crap! I can't do eet! *goes off to find something to do something else*"

Still. Fender doesn't need to be making the squire line the exact look a likes of their normal line guitars. Its just a money gimmick and it works. I just hate when good guitar companies start selling out and doing stuff like that. I'd rather see them think more about their quality then making the money.

And I've been playing guitar since I was at least 6 give or take a year or so. 19 now. So yeah I know my guitar stuff quite a bit too. ^^

Honestly, those old Squires are BARGINS dude. Sure, the electronics are as befudgered as most Squires now, but ones from back then are AS well built as the new Mexican Fenders, if not better. And if you get one with a played in neck, the most you'll need to spend is for new frets.

All of my guitars have been modded somehow...I just get bored with how they sound, and without the cash to buy a new one, I just buy some new pickups and rewire it. Actually destroyed my old bass pickups....I sorta left the soldering iron laying on one of them and went away...and yeah, it was still switched on = one very destroyed pickup.

It's funny, I've been playing bass since I was 10/11, two years before I even picked up a six stringer...I'm nearly 22 now and I've still got the same bass I've had since then...and it works, despite numerous falls, knocks, smashes, me falling on it, and having beer spilt on it during a gig.
