I start to play keyboard with 10 years, and I play it usually.

I tried learning the guitar once. Like all good guitar players, I downloaded tabs for Stairway to Heaven and then went "wtfff" and gave up. Seems like the intro to Nirvana's "Smells[color=E1E1E1] [/color]Like Teen Spirit" is a more popular thing to learn these days anyhow.

I've found a fairly good way of learning the bass; just literally playing through albums. It seems to be working quite well as I up my skill level - start with American Idiot and a few other Greenday albums, and progressing onto Absolution/Black Holes & Revelations, and By The Way/Stadium Arcadium. Not bad considering I've only been playing since Christmas. And of course on the way I've picked up plenty other songs too.

Piano, nine or ten years.  I can't remember now, but I started when I was six or seven.

the intro is finger picking and thats why its hard for you. then it switches to a twelve string.






anyways...i just started playing the keyboard, so does anyone know the sheet music for foreplay/longtime by boston. if you have it would you email it to me at twshaffer10@msn.com   thank!
Right on

piano, for about a year, i just play by ear and improvise, im not great, but its fun none the less.  to go with the piano, i play keyboard/synth in a jam band, and so far we just write our own stuff.

i also play... scratch that, mess around with trumpet, harmonica and digeridoo (thats right)
