@ Blue-rebel: Woah! thats a lot of instruments you can play. Are you actually planning on being a musician?
Compared to me, i can only play the piano. I haven't been learning for a long time but i'm happy with my pregress. The most instruments i've seen a person play is 2, but blue-rebel here.........O ....O.....ohhhhh. amazing? i don't know a better word.
I've never really thought of using my knowledge in piano to actually use it sometime in the future. I was always putting piano as one of my recreational activities.
Gosh, no, well, I dunno. :p The only instruments I took formal lessons in are piano, electone and guitar. I learned how to play 6 others in the school band and 2 in the orchestra. And if you think about it, the piano and electone are similar - except that one's got two extra keyboards (bass pedals included); the oboe, flute and piccoloflute use almost the same fingering; and it's not difficult to pick up other woodwind instruments once you already can play a few. :)
Also, I come from very... "musical" family. And if things like pianicas and castenets and triangles and tambourines count I'll add them to the list! :D Hee hee.
Whooaa..:2thumbs: :2thumbs: that's so cool..both of you are cool..shinopius and blue_rebel...you played so many instrument....
well, this are d instrument i've been played....
-piano..almost 13 years
-recorder..4 years...it's hard to play it with german system.
-alto flute..when junior high school..around 2 years and then quit
-pianica..last 2 years on elementaru music group
-harmonica..1 year but quit
-guitar..1/2 year then quit
If you notice, I'v played all the strings family but there's no Violin. It's bcoz i hate it for ridiculous reason..it's too small for me.:D And i hate the sound..idk why..weird..From those 3, I most with Viola :violin: . Eventhough from my first time i learned Viola until now my Viola always makes me sick :shoot: , but because of that junky viola, now i play in symphonic orchestra..I love you my viola :2thumbs: :2thumbs: :1st: for my old viola. which most proud is my Viola played Romeo and Juliet overture Tschaikovsky
I always want to play woodwind [oboe, flute, basoon] and the brass [trumpet, sax, french horn]. i dunno why but i never interested to play any band tool except the bass. Sometimes [but I think it's alway] I envy to people who can play many instrument profesionally. It's always fascinated me. Salute :hattip: for those ppl who played their instrument with their heart and soul..
Viola! Nice! I've always wanted to learn how to play the viola. And the fiddle :) Partly because I no one I know plays the fiddle, and partly because I totally love Irish-y instruments like.. well, the fiddle. And the pennywhistle. :D My dad's been trying to get me to pick up the double bass, though, because he's into jazz bands with DBs. They sound really good, admittedly, but uhhh, haha, the size of a DB alone intimidates me... ^^;;
o___O;; Wow rebel-chan, you used to play a lot of music! I only played violin for two years, and I forgot how to play it all together. T.T I used to enjoy playing it, though. And I play piano as a mere hobby. Nothing special. I envy you TT_TT

Hey, nicely done with all your instruments. here's a list of mine.
Guitar - 7 years
Piano - 12 years
Trumpet ( actually a coronet, no one knows what it is though lol) - 8 years
Drums - 3 years
Banjo - 1/2 a year (it's really hard)
Accordian - 2 months (my grandpa gave me it, also next to impossible to play)
I have always wanted to learn to play the bagpipes. a lot of ppl don't seem to like them, but i dunno, i luv em. might be cause of the scottish in me, maybe. lol or i'm wierd. i have two guitars, i have a Fender Stratocaster and a Beavercreek Acoustic. I wanna find a good double neck Gibson Guitar. that'd be insane heavy, but super fun.:2thumbs: :2thumbs: :2thumbs:
I've taken two piano courses in College, so my level of piano playing is somewhat intermediate. I mainly learned it so I can learn at least one form of art to a good extent that I would enjoy to do as a hobby. The only tunes I've played are simple ones, super nintendo game music, and favorite songs of mine.
I play clarinet and alto, tenor, and bari saxophone. I can pretty much pick out any song I want learn from ear, even a couple metal songs. (weird, yes.) I really want to learn the god of all insturments: guitar, but I don't have the drive to pursue it. I figure I got my whole life to go after it though.
