Ocarina. And for only a year and a half now. Still no good, I can barely do the Temple of Time song.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

In grade school I played clarinet in the school band for 2 years.  In high school I was "strongly encouraged" by mom to take piano lessons.  I took about a years worth of lessons.  My brother had been playing drums for about 5 years and help me purchase my 1st bass guitar in high school.  We formed a band that lasted about a year - in our first gig we placed 2nd out of 8 bands at a "battle of the bands" I've gotta tell ya - there is no kind of rush like the first time you step up in front of a large crowd and play live musics.  Later, I bought a guitar but never really had the time to develop much with it.  Bass is definitely my favorite instrument and I've got about 3 years of playing without any formal training.  Unfortunately I haven't been able to really pick it up for about 10 years now.   

My newest "instrument" should be arriving next week as I ordered Guitar Hero for the PS/2 with 2 guitars.  It should be fun.

I've been playing Piano for about 4 months now, already I'm very good at it. It takes a while to first learn a song, but after 30-60 minutes of practicing I can get a song right. I practice slowly and a few times rather than quickly many times over, because sheet music is so hard to read off the bat. I think I play differently than other people because I 'feel' the music. I can feel the waverings of the sound waves in my inner ear and I use that to time the beat, and eventually, I practice a song without looking at anything. Thinking "Okay, this is a D, then a G, then C.." just messes me up.

In other words, I teach my fingers where the next keys are, then play it practically unconsciously.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I have been playing percussion insturments for 10 years now, i.e. since I was 8.  Mainly just play drum set.  Had a rock band together with my friends for a while, but no longer.  I have a Ludwig set with Zildjian cymbals.

1st chair in school! not too bad for a sophmore...  ;D
though, I think I'm only 1st because I sit closer to the teacher than the other 1st clarinet... :D

Hi there,
i playing Keyboard, Guitar and bass and mix all of it with a powerbook.
I also bought a tenor-saxophone but i cant find a teacher around here (i am living in a small town in germany)  :(
Also from my last trip to indonesia i brought a chinese instrument with me, called Guzheng. A nice instrument. Its compareable to a zither and has 21 strings (pentatonic) and you can bend them a little bit. Well.. i hope i wil be able to do some practice soon.. but i fear i  will just play oblivion  :)

    • It's my muck-around space.
Baritone B.C. also known as Euphonium  :) look it up if you have no clue what I'm talking about. I'm in an eighth grade band and we play a lot of stuff. We did the pirates of the Carribean symphonic suite and I play a little guitar.

A man after my own heart, although I have gone on to do the two companionships after eighth grade.
I started on the Euphonium, but now can play pretty much any brass instrument. I also play a little piano.

EDIT: I have been playing for about, oh, 7 years now.
