Which do you play?

And are honestly good at, "Chopsticks" isn't playing the piano.




I tried to put the most-played ones up as specific instruments, and then more general ones towards the bottom.

guitar for a few years off and on. it would probably add up to about 2 years if you took all the time where i actually practiced and shit.
i want to learn either drums or bass, but my mom will be pissed at me if i tell her i want to learn bass (they just bought me a new guitar) and they wont let me learn drums. too loud. D=

Recently I've been going at the piano, it's my favorite instrument to play, especially if I'm just improvising. That includes synthesizers, my guitar teacher has a $7,000 Yamama Casanova that I can get away with playing every once in a while, it's incredible.

I've been playing trumpet for 9 years, guitar and bass for a few months, and I'm currently teaching myself how to play the native american flute. I know the fingerings/positions for a bunch of other concert band instruments but I haven't physically tried to play most of them yet. I'm also good at the drums, but I've only messed around on them twice and have no regular access to a set.

LN3uq

Yeah, I like improvising on the piano a lot more than on saxophone, though I'm considerably better at the latter

I believe I took drum lessons when I was four
If I ever have money to blow while in college, I'll probably buy a bass.

I currently play both acoustic guitar and electric guitar, bass, percussion instruments of all kinds including drum set, French horn, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn, and baritone.

Want a real point?

After your well presented, almost presidential debate sort of material?

"lul sex-oh-fone is lolstupid cuzz it only playses tha jazz"

The saxaphone is a ****ing awesome instrument. It has a particular tone (or whatever word used for that) that's commonly used in jazz but is just as useful iun every other genre out there.

You have no ****ing idea what you're even saying!

yes... they were my exact words...

I am only taking my view on instruments on how people play them at my school. I may have got a false impression, maybe I have... buy I still agree electric guitar is better.

thank you and goodnight.



EDIT: Damn, does everyone play saxophone around here, or does everyone just enjoy slagging me off?

It was my exact interpretation of your exact words.

That's an awful root for an opinion. Before you start calling the instruments people play "awful instruments" why don't you just look into it instead of looking at bobby play a saxaphone and say, "hey that looks dumb, I think that entire instrument is awful!"

also:
I believe putting

thank you and goodnight.
or anything that could possibly be related to

"thank you and goodnight."or

"i think the term ur looking for is 'holy shit'"
at the end of their posts doesn't make their post look any cooler by any means, but in fact makes them look like the author look like a retard.

thank you and good night.

Seriously speaking, if I were to learn how to play something, I'd choose Piano.

Try being in a band with alto saxophones that play at an all-state level in a state where all-state is very difficult to make.

Jazz is NOT all a saxophone can do.

Recorder- Soprano, Alto, Tenor. For about 9 years.
Alto sax- 4 years.

Gave up recorder for sax, then gave up sax as the only decent music teacher at my school left, and the replacement sucked ball. He had no musical soul.

And well my mom kinda put me on it. What you expected though? Cause I'm totally not a rock type (well I have a very active, rock behavior I guess. But music genre) I'm into R&B which uses piano.

No nerd like. PIMPING THE PIANO!!! /R&B/pop songs as well. Although still in the learning phase :D

I'm gonna learn guitar as well though, and maybe take some singing lessons to spice my vocals up (But this one probably lataaaa)
