I've played the violin for 8 years now. I self taught myself the piano, guitar, and ukulele, but I'm not as comfortable as I am with the violin. It's not something I take seriously. Of course, I love playing music, but I don't want to make a career out of it. I started violin when I was I think 8 years old and our school had offered music programs.

Simple question, what kind of music instruments you play? How long have you played? Do you intend on playing them professionally? How did you learn?

Do tell.


Is the armpit considered an instrument ?

Played the violin since middle school, that was over fifteen years ago. Also, casually play drums, but I haven't played them as often anymore. Maybe three times a month at the most.

Well I have played the violin now for 10 years on and off. Learned in school but haven't played much since I got out. and I have been producing music for just as long. (that's making "beats" as some would call it) Then I learned the piano and have played that for about 8 years or so and soon after that I learned the Bass, then guitar. My favorite instrument to play is the guitar, I love shredding on it. so much fun lol but I can pick up different instruments and at least make a decent sound. I've played the banjo, cello, double bass, saxophone, ukulele, viola, trombone, trumpet, drums (different kinds including African and Latin percussion), etc. I just love music and hope to make it my full time thing one day

I used to play the guitar and bass but now play the ukulele most of the time. Same amount of musicality in such a small package. It's cheaper too! Perfect

Was forced to learn Piano for two years. I can play fine, but can't really read music and still feel resentment whenever I sit at one.

Wish I'd learned guitar as that would be super useful to me now!

When I was 5 my parents 'forced' me to learn piano & violin, and cello when I was 7.
Almost 2 decades later, I'm still playing them, though I play violin & cello more than piano now.

good thing I dont have a tendency to feel old I've been bashin drums for like 35 years, guitar 30+

if you want to sound good to most people on guitar, just learn some pentatonic scales well, you can do a lot with it. but if you want to start learning the other diatonic scales or stuff then get out some paper and tab every fret and learn that scale all over the fretboard so that you can just jump to a section and play the notes of the scale. once you get the habit energy down for that pattern, move on to another pattern and then you start getting a good feel for how to change voicings of musical phrases and such.

its not something you want to do professionally though. not if you like any semblance of a normal schedule. it wont pay very well unless you are both extremely talented and preposterously lucky, and there's a high chance it will kill the love for music and playing if you have to put food on the table with it.

I havent had to put food on the table with it, but have friends and relative who did.

Guitar for 6 years. I'm a slammer and a furious blues scale noodler. My biggest inspirations where Malcolm/Angus Young and Ace Frehley. Later Bruce Springsteen and now Thurston Moore and Lee Ranaldo. I play messily and sloppy cause it's fun. I don't care for being a "good" player just an expressive one.

Drums for a few years. I'm not great but I love to play. Biggest inspirations Eric Carr, Peter Criss and Ringo Starr. I love to play KISS and Beatles tunes and my own stuff to.

Bass for 7 years. I don't play often anymore, only for my own songs (I make one man band music). I started because of Gene SImmons.

I try to sing as well. I love it but I'm not good yet. I do John Beatles tunes, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan and my own stuff mostly. Some Byrds lately and I try songs of Pet Sounds but...it's hard.
