    Default Do You Play An Instrument?

    I thought it might be fun to see who plays a musical instruments and what they play.

    I will start it off. I grew up playing the drums and played in several local bands. When I joined the Marines I continued to play the drums and played with some guys I was stationed with as well as a few local bands in San Diego. My roommate was a guitar player and I learned a little from him. After the Marines and I moved back to my hometown I played in more bands (drums) and we actually were playing all over Ohio. Once I got married I was burnt out and needed a break. We had 2 small children so the drums were a firm no go! I bought a guitar but was not very satisfied with it. I picked up the bass guitar and fell in love! I think it is a perfect mix of drums and guitar. I am not in a band at the moment but I just enjoy playing.

    Now, what do you play?

    Oh, Jezzzz! I meant to put "play" NOT "plan" in the thread title. Sometimes I feel like such an idiot.

    I used to play bass and drums. Was never in a band just did it because I loved to play. As time became scarce after the kids were born I gave up playing to dedicate my life and as much free time to their activities. My daughter just started play acoustic guitar so I might have to break out my old Gibson and strum a tune or two with her. lol
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    When I was in grade school I played the viola (like a violin but a little bigger). I didn't keep it up after grade school though!

    Seems like we have a lot in common, Todd. With working and coaching I have limited time but I squeeze it in here and there when I can.

    It's one of those things I never got into but wanted to. When I was in elementay school, (I think it was 4th or 5th grade, maybe even earlier) we had some sort of test to see who could hear the different notes and sounds that were very subtle. Those who passed were invited to join the band and learn an instrument. I wanted to play te saxophone so bad! Unfortunately, I did not fare as well as others and some friends did and they were in the band and I was so jealous! lol. These days I sometimes think about how cool it would be to play guitar but I cannot see myself being able to make the time to even learn. You guys that do play are very lucky!

    I played drums (for fun) on my ex Hubby's set of Pearl drums.

    Would love to play guitar, not sure if fingers would cooperate now.

    Arthritis...I was thinking about this the other day...maybe lessons?

    Put son in guitar lessons when he was 13/14 but he wasn't that interested.

    I LOVE music of all types, think that's one reason I was such a clubber (well,
    excess energy too) to listen to music and dance all night

    Great question!

    I played the flute from 3rd grade through up through my first year of High School. I also played the piccolo. I was #2 in my seat on the flute and #1 on the piccolo. I didn't really care for the marching band nor the orchestra so I basically gave it up. I used to pick it up and play often so I wouldn't forgot how to play it and then I quit doing that. Don't think I can play a note now. But I still have my original flute.

    I love the piano and always wished I had one. I used to play my grandma's but it was self-taught only.

    I fixed the title too.

    I learned to play the violin in grade school but quit my violinist career at age 9yo!

    then in adulthood, i went to the local community college to take piano lessons. I was obsessed with it and loved playing and even bought my own (used) piano. Since then however, i haven't practiced or played much, piano is at my brother's house b/c i don't have room for it in my house. One day tho, i will take it up again.

    Hey Jeff...weird thing happened after I posted to your thread. Listening to radio
    and Foreigner's 'Urgent' came on...one of my favs to drum along to, now when
    is the last time you heard that song on regular radio (rarely even listen to radio).

    Just thought it was cool as I'd just posted then heard it.
