Currently, classical & flamenco guitar, & French horn (the horn less seriously, due to jaw pain problems) in addition to the piano. I used to play the clarinet at school, & can get a tune out of the flute too. I also tried the violin, which was a disaster \:\(

I've played guitar since age seven (I'm nearly 57 now). I have been in several rock, dance and wedding bands with the guitar. Of late I just play "fingerstyle", which is a little like George Winston on the guitar. I also played Fender Bass guitar in bands, and was first trombone in my high school and college orchestras.

I played piano for a few years as a teenager, and recently returned to piano, initially to give my hands a breather from the rsi of the guitar. I really love the sound of the piano, and the feeling of making music on the piano is very big and very rewarding.

Guitar. But just enough to do the "campfire singalong" kind of stuff. I love guitar because it's like an instant party. I can play and sing with a bunch of friends, and it's fun. Like playing duets on the piano.

Now solo piano is another story. That's scary, so I mostly play the piano for my own enjoyment.

I played clarinet all the way through high school, and I still play on occasion at my church.

For my thirtieth birthday, I decided I wanted to learn violin. After three years of lessons, I could play intermediate-level music, but I couldn't get happy with my tone, so I stopped trying.

My husband and I have an acoustic trio and I wanted to do something besides just sing. I play piano on a few tunes, but I'm really a better classical pianist than a popular one. We bought an electric bass (I know that's not acoustic, but we define such things very loosely) and I can thump along in a very basic way.

Now I'm taking piano lessons again, mostly playing classical pieces, because it's just easier for me, but trying to learn to improvise enough to play passable popular piano. It's like learning a new instrument!

I currently play bass guitar in a country band - Lincoln Highway. I can also play guitar, am a vocalist, and have tried my hand at harmonica and fiddle. The later two haven't turned out so well I am sorry to say.

Bassman,

I assume you pronounce your alias with a short "a" like in Seinfeld ;\)

I played the flute in the school band in from fifth grade 'til sophomore year in high school.

I have always wanted to play the guitar because you can throw it in the trunk of your car and entertain people and yourself wherever you may be. Also, it looks cool. ;\) I bought a guitar and tried to learn myself, but I need lessons. I think those are in order for 2005.

I played clarinet from age 7 until I graduated from high school. I played pretty well actually. I expected the same "success" with piano, boy have I been disappointed! However its a journey of love.

My old beloved clarinet is now mounted on the wall in our family room (to the right of the guitar, unfortunately in this photo-in the shadow) [img]http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/pianojpg[/img]
