gez i really need to learn to spell....

It's supposed to be instrument. The violin thread got me thinking....

I've played the banjo and bass but always wanted to play the trumpet or maybe the sax

Drums all the way man.
I've always wanted drums but my parents won't let me get them cause "they're too noisy" ... Even though we have a garage.

P.S. This is a new account I made. I'm gonna start fresh and not post a billion times a day.

I'd like to learn bass or banjo.

I have a trumpet that I used to take lessons on, and it's pretty fun. Hard though.

I also have piano that I like to piddle around on.

the banjo is hard unless you know how to finger pick. I do so i picked up some bluegrass standards in a week i just had to learn some new chords. The bass is pretty easy i think there several techniques that can be hard such as slap and plucking funk or using your fingers vs pic. I think every guitarist should own a bass.

Sax definately the Sax. What a fantastic sound! Clarence Clemons solo on Jungleland live gets me every time! Man, that dude can blow.

Yeah I played a banjo once. It was for one of the plays at my school, and one day at the stage crew (where we build sets and stuff for the plays) we were having a barbeque since we finished ahead of schedule, and I plucked around on it. Pretty fun, but very different. The fifth string that starts halfway down the neck kept throwing me off.

I'm also going to buy a bass soon, after I get a new guitar.

Sax, no question. It's nerdy in school, but a chick-magnet afterward.

piano and harmonica are bomb. piano seems like it would be alot easier to learn musical theory compared to guitar and theory's what im all about. Harmonica is tight because its portable in a pocket, and ive always wanted to be that bum on the corner playin blues with my hat open for tips.

I'm really surprised that (just for a lark) I put in 'Nipples' to the 'Other' box and found that it already accounted for 4% of the poll!

Who the hell else voted for nipples? Good on ya!

Flute, Sax, Trumpet, Violin, Sitar, and more if I had Bernard's Watch.

I LOVE the sax though... I'm definitely going to pick that up in a few months. It has such a great tone.

No need for me to put nipples, I can already play that :P Too many hilarious jokes I could put in at this point... I'll contain myself

more useless knowledge coming your way.

Western music has a standard of 12 tones and we have been able to create lots of music with those tones.

Eastern music has about 4 tones in between our 12, and I think the sitar has movable frets.

with this in mind if you have a hard time telling the diffrence between an C and C# good luck learning the sitar.

ever heard of the chapman stick?

yea the sitar has movable frets, i think you can move the 7th and 12th frets up and down to change the key any and things like that,
yea it seems like it would be a challange to learn to play good, bu i think thats one of teh reasons id like to learn, its a good challenge


no what is the chapman stick?

Phip is the source for quotes.

Bass is cool and all, but I'd get massive blisters from that, my hands are too soft to even attempt slap bass or just playing the bass for longer than a minute. :D

I made a funny comment about Afro's choice in instrument, but it was deleted haha! (didn't know that was possible)

My jokes are too cool.


I'm just curious... why haven't you guys already picked up the piano? It's known to be the most helpful for theory and chords. What I mean is, even play it a little - it's a good reference when thinking in your mind about certain notes, intervals and theory.

Well I already play 5 string banjo, have played Chromatic harmonica and obviousy learning guitar, so I picked trumpet. Trumpet's are great! I listened to some cuban jazz song and said I wanted lessons on it! But Oh no, everyone had to say no because I keep getting bored of an instrument and move onto another allthe time. (Which is true...but still!)

Seems like many Bassists would play those chapmans. I know Jean Baudin would play one for sure.
