    Reason (as has been mentioned is a sequencer/Sampler)you programme in a melodiy orselect a sample/ceate your own and you can loop it or pitch shift, modulate lots of flexability, although is some what limitted to styles and genre... no classical compostions on this programe! well the choise is yours!

    astowhat instrumenti play.. the Piano (Grade 4), keyboard (sysths), Kit (drums grade 8), jembe, tabla, Timpany, congas, bongos, All types of auxillary percusion (ie tambourine, maracas etc). (used to paly in the "isle of wight youth wind band" man a mouth full..) andfinnalyi have grade 1 singing.... so i am not tone deff at least!!

    I play guitar and bass and a little bit of drums - I use my voice as an instrument as well. I really would love to learn the violin and standing bass.

    i don't play an instrument, my little brother plays the guitar, not really good at it, but he's taking lessons. quick question, does anyone know the name of a certain flute? it's a line of small pipes bound together, from longest to shortest.

    it seems alot of beginners seem to really like Fruity Loops...i've got it, but i never really used it very much. it's another program similar to Reason, but with the advantage of vsti (vsti's are emulators of hardware synthesizers, and are controlled via MIDI)...Cubase (or logic) are excellent programs, but are designed for professionals, and might scare off a beginner...Cakewalk has several music making programs, all varying in price and difficulty... but Fruity Loops is a good choice if you're just starting out

    I have just gotten an acoustic guitar, and plan on geting an electric guitar sometime in the future.

    But obviously since I just got it I can't quite play it, haha. Not to mention it's a Christmas present and I'm not supposed to really know about it, haha.
    Dreams come true, but nightmares do too.

    Life isn't a game, it's just a referal to the time you exist on this playground called Earth.

    I dabble on the piano, but really, really would love to learn the pan pipes. Can the voice be considered a musical instrument?
