Guitar, Bass, Drums, a little Keyboard, and now piano. The keyboard was in a pro band were I played Guitar and keys as a side line.

My inspiration is Ken Hensley from Uriah Heep back in the 70's. He was an excellent guitarist as well as accomplished pianist and keyboard player. I have always really respected people that play more than one instrument well!

You got it EJR! The guy totally rocked and still does for being in his sixties! That is the picture of him from the inside of Made In Japan. My favorite live recording of all time. But I am biased since I still play the CD and play along with it whenever I can!

You know your players Man!

Hi HwyStar,

I agree about Made in Japan! I have the CD, but prefer the original vinyl that I bought when it first came out!

"The guy totally rocked and still does for being in his sixties!"

Too right!

How well do I play these instruments? As well as I can.

oh man, ummm, with out having to name them all I'll just say all brass. I'm sure there are a few brass instruments I haven't messed with but seriously once you have mastered the main ones the others shouldn't be much different.

I have played a few different woodwinds, Flute, Clarinet, and Sax. Never touched a double reed instrument.

I have a Fender Electric and was getting somewhat descent then my step brother hooked his bass up to my amp and blew it up. I haven't bought a new one yet, (its been 2 years) I am sure I am not as good anymore.

I played percussion with my local symphonic group. Nothing demanding like snare. Marimba type of things.

Yes - see signature for details....

oh and I've been known to bang on the drums occassionally in a recording studio have grappled with playing various sampled noises using a standard QWERTY computer keyboard on stage whilst doing keyboard work, have sung on rare occassions and have even performed on stage playing the Kazoo!

If you bang it, hit it, stroke it, pluck it or blow it - I've probably had a go at some point! (I'll admit my harp playing wasnt up to much in the 20 minutes I had a go!)

Guitar and Keyboard. However I haven't been focusing much on guitar as I myself isn't that proficient in Piano which is my main instrument... ._.

I'm inspired by Allman Brothers' keyboardist and I like blues. However I yet able to play anything like that. Not even a normal accompaniment. frown

Vibraphone. My father bought me a set when I was 15, to play along with him on Piano and Organ (b3 in the living room.) I guess it was suppose to be a father/son bonding thing and keep me away from drugs. We worked out some pretty nice stuff at the time.

Dad is deceased now for many years, so vibes are now a nice looking piece of furniture (mostly) in my condo.

Now that I am playing/practicing more, I would be very interested to hook up with someone else that is also interested in both (piano and vibes) and work out some arrangements.

Vibes are a beautiful instrument (in my opinion) but do really need accompaniment.

Started out on trumpet in school, then moved on to guitar. I can play acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitar, mandolin, trumpet, and now I'm re-teaching myself piano. I also have a mandocello on order that's being built for me, but it's the same discipline as mandolin.

Violin and Organ were my first instruments to learn.

I play upright bass and electric bassguitar. Why is it that every pianoplayer I played with (in my bluesband) always copy my basslines with their left hand? wink

I play the French Horn and the Trumpet (as well as the piano).

Although saying I play is a bit of a fib since I haven't really played any of them properly for a couple of years, looking to get back into music a little which is why I'm here laugh

No, I don't play another instrument, and I've never wanted to. Why not get better at the piano, instead of trying to learn six other instruments to a rudimentary level at the same time.

Hi there!

My main instrument is guitar, both classical and electric, and I am currently working on my piano skills, which I'm trying to get up to a decent level as quickly as possible (I know, I know, it takes time and patience). I would very much like to learn to play trumpet and oboe.

Cheers!

I play the violin for 5 years already, and now the piano. I think learning both at the same time helps with the other instrument. I practice one instrument, but at the same time, in some way I am also practicing the other instrument.
