I play the harp cos it's nice and easy.
but I can program synths/drums to a reasonable standard too.
I'm completely self-taught, so my technique is a bit dodgy, but I was a latecomer to being 'musical', being forced to play the recorder put me off for years.
guitar who doesnt, and banjo
I tend to play my acoustic and beat the strings really hard when I'm playing chords (with a heavy bass pick) - makes it into more of a percussion instrument. It's a sound I like, but not everyone who's heard me has agreed.
melodica, ukulele, keyboard a tiny bit.
Is it hard?
It's just a really shitty little keyboard. I used to play one in my old band, and if I was really drunk I would run out of breath.
I am learning to play the accordion.
its fun to play the tetris music on.
i play guitar and bass and make electronic music on my laptop. sound.
Tenor horn, couple of other brass instruments, guitar (usual suspects electric and classical/spanish).
Oboe (not for years though)
not forgetting the mighty recorder and also spoons.
and keyboard, and drums. but slightly better at singing. my musical talent is woeful. i am thinking about getting a nanoloop cartridge for my old game boy though. does anybody make 8-bit music?
that would be a luscious instrument to play I can imagine.
I play piano, battled on up to grade 5 when I was a kid but gave that up and just pretty much self-teach these days...which means I'm fairly shit. I can sort of play guitar and bass but not too well
bass and drums, the latter fairly ineptly. Played a bit of keyboard too.
Guitar, Bass, Drums, Tenor Sax, Clarinet (I know...)
I used to play steel drums as well, but not having any means I've forgotten now.
I can also play very simple chords on a keyboard and I own a chord organ which I muck about on.
And I can play the recorder.
Nothing too exciting.
are we gonna form a DiS-Supergroup?
Electronic drums (badly)
I'm also learning how to play the harmonica.
guitar, bass, programming
I REALLY want to learn to play the harp, I love it so much. I play piano, guitar, bass, and attempt to play violin. I'd like to learn the cello too.
I got one like this tinking it would be small
but it is massive
Especially if you inherited a big glittery gold one :D
Its got the same notes as a piano, and once you learn the hand positions it's simple to play songs from ear. PLUS you know that lovely little tinkly sound harps make? Just run your fingers down the harp and you get it!
