I played the French Horn in elementary school, and I taught myself a few songs on the guitar. I consider myself a master of thwacking rulers on desks, though. (If you don't know what that is, shame!)

I play the violin (8th grade orchestra). We play mostly classic stuff (Overture 1812, Mozart's Serenade, small crap like that) although lately we played Stairway to Heaven (one of the bass players in my class can play guitar) and Pirates of the Carribean music. Could've been the Concert Master, but tuning all the little biatches in my class gets annoying.

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.

I have been playing the Violin since I was 6 (am now 23) but have not played much since high school.  I still have my violin in the closet, but I have to much other stuff to do.

I played bass for 3+ years, but gave up. I now produce and make 'rap' music (for the past couple of years, mostly the last year). Visit deeplee.net for free MP3s of my stuff. It's getting there. I was thinking about making a track with Zelda:link to the past, the music you hear in the fairy caves... check back I'll post it up there just for fun sometime, if I ever get Reason to work again.

Guitar for about 3 years (bass for 1), Piano for about 5, I sing pretty okay, and am in a Junk band (see my new sig!). We're hoping to go to the Bristol Festival. Those English people amongst you will know what I'm on about. I've played with Jack Harris and Robert Blake.

I've played bass for 5 years now, but just in school. At first it was fun, but now in high school it's starting to become more like a chore. Most people in the band now want to become a musician and are really committed, but for myself who just wants to play casually, it's a bit too technical. I'm kind of uncertain wether to continue at the moment...
