Hey, I played clarinet in 5th and sixth grade. (orchesta/Marching band)
Alto sax from 7th - 10th grade. (orchesta/Marching band/Football halftime shows)
Tenor and baritone sax my junior and senor yrs.(Jazz Band/orchesta/Marching band/Football halftime shows)

I played accordian for at least 6 yrs when I was a kid, I played every year at my family reunion for my Great Grandmother in front of a couple hundred people. A nervous wreak I was every year. I always said I did not want to play, but was talked into it, my mom said she wasn't always going to be around, so I am glad I had the opportunity to play for her. I was the only one who did.

So I can play piano a little as well.

I have an accordian (seriously I do) but don't play it. My sister does a little and my brotehr does play pretty well.

My bro is the one with the musical taent. He was a music major in college.

I can sing half-way decently, though

Back in grade school I played trumpet for the school band, then in JR. High I played Bass, and started taking guitar lessons but for reasons I don't recall sold the base and stopped the lessons.

I've played guitar for almost 20 years now ( :o ) and been in several bands... right now I'm not playing at all, but here's a few of the more recent pictures. This was my last band, called "Lament" and was back around 2004.

LOL, funny you say that... we started out as a Slayer cover band, and then just started writing our own stuff. The Slayer cover band was cool, we used to play about 2 hours worth of old Slayer tunes... nothing newer than South of Heaven. Just the good old oldies...

I can play drums, bass, but mostly concentrate on the 6-string guitar. It's another of my hobbies that doesnt get enough attention. Played in a band for a bit, when I was in the Navy.

I played the trumpet from 2nd grade to the end of high school. I ranked 1st in the state of Illinois of all high school students, got offered a couple small scholarships, but turned those down because I was sick of playing the trumpet. I haven't tooted a note in it since 1991.

  Why,I don't look anything like that guy on the left, and besides, I read that the record lable made them get neutered prior to signing them on.
  And Starfox.......exactly how many of their albums do you have, in vinyl form?

I can play drums, bass, but mostly concentrate on the 6-string guitar. It's another of my hobbies that doesnt get enough attention. Played in a band for a bit, when I was in the Navy.

i can play drums, keyboard, and guitar effectively.  I'd probably be much much better if i actually cared enough to hone my skills.

I've increasingly become drawn into the digital composition and production realm, and i've begun to dabble in that.  I'd always wanted to be the next Phil Spector anyway.  Only without the eccentric behaviour and homicidal gunplay.

This place is getting better and better, an instruments thread? Brilliant!

I plan on attending the University of Houston next fall to participate in their outstanding Music Education program. I'm both a Euphoniumist and an aspiring brass instrumentalist.

Right now I primarily play the Euphonium, but I also play the Trombone, Trumpet, Tuba, and French Horn. Haven't done any gigs for money, but I've done plenty worth money. Shame us music students can't get paid for all the crap we do!

Hey bro, I think you should because playing those instruments is really hard. I tryed to play clarinet when I was in high school, but no luck so I went to playind drums. Can you play any SW music on any of those instruments that you can play. That would be really really cool if you could play SW music on any of those brass instruments which I would love to be able to do if I could play brass instruments. Which I been playing drums for 21yrs know, dang has it been that long. :-\

Heh, nowadays I'm able to play the more common themes on, really, any given brass instrument. I used to be really good at playing movie tunes way back in junior high on Horn.

Only advice I can give to you coming from a 21yr musician is to practice,practice,practice till your blue in the face. But once you start getting frustrated then you need to stop. Come back and try again when you are rested and practice more. Coming from years of experience of playing drums thats what it takes to learn to play ANY instrument is practice and dedication to your instrument.

I played the trumpet from 2nd grade to the end of high school. I ranked 1st in the state of Illinois of all high school students, got offered a couple small scholarships, but turned those down because I was sick of playing the trumpet. I haven't tooted a note in it since 1991.

i want to take up trumpet, Dustrho, do you think it's even worth it?  i mean, i know the mechanics of playing a brass instrument, i know basic music theory (i'm studying music production) and i know i need to develop my embouchure, but i'm 32 years old.  i saw on a musicians' forum someone in her mid-20s wanted to take up viola cold and everyone told her she was too old, yes, too old to begin the training; that it's better to learn an instrument like that when you're young.

i'm curious, what's your 411?

I'd say it's never to late to learn a instrument. I didn't learn drums till I was 13yrs so no matter what age you are, anyone can learn a instrument at any age.

Don't take any time for granted. If you want to learn anything, whether it be a new language, cook your favorite food, or even play an instrument, do it. Then you will not have any regrets of woulda coulda shoulda.

Not as funny as you being the opening act for Willie Nelson in Austin Texas! All kidding aside I do admire anyone who can play as I attempted a couple different instruments growing up (other than the skin flute) and found it to be not my cup of tea. My brother on the other hand can play quite a few different things, but really enjoys the guitar.

I play electric guitar as well. I took lessons in late 2000 and recently stopped. I'm taking a sabbat(h)ical and will continue the lessons next season. I have so much info from my teacher, I want to take my time and really dig through that.

The great thing about my teacher is that he managed to widen my musical horizon immensely. My roots (no pun intended) stick with the likes of Sepulturea, Metallica, Fear Factory, Machine Head, but man, did I learn to appreciate blues, funk and good ol' 70s rock!

I don't play in a band, simply because of not wanting to take on even more commitments. I just play for myself and friends and for the fun of it. I have a USA Strat and a Yamaha SA2000. The latter one is excellent for some groovy slide guitar playing.

Last week I doodled a bit of From This Day by Machine Head and accidentally stumbled on the riff of Wilma's Rainbow by Helmet. Things like this are pretty funny!

Yeah, they can do that for you, no doubt. When I started taking lessons back in 1986, all I wanted to learn was Ozzy and Metallica songs. But he opened my ears to a lot of other music, and I actually started learning to play classical nylon string guitar at that point. I was learning suites from Back and Mozart translated to the guitar, and I could actually hear songs and passages by Randy Rhoads (R.I.P.) and Yngwie Malmsteen in them. That got me hooked and I learned classical for the next several years, and learned to appreciate much more than rock/metal.

Of course, he also showed me the roots of other styles like jazz, funk, rock and metal, and the basics like scales and chord progressions. I learned how to get the sounds I wanted, many different sounds out of the same guitar/amp. I would play a Hendrix song with a nice fat funk sound and then adjust pickups and tweak settings to get that screaming metal Judas Priest sound 2 minutes later.

Yep, Max left in '97 after a dispute between the other band members and Sep's manager, who happened to be Max's wife  :-\ Max formed Soulfly and Sepultura struggled further without him. However, Max and his brother Iggor got back together last year and formed Cavalera Conspiracy and released Inflikted this year. Saw 'em live in Amsterdam earlier this year, and did they mop the floor with the joint! Lots and lots of Sep songs and in-your-face brutality from the Inlikted album. And Marc Rizzzo on guitar, incredible  :partyon:

Here are some shots I took from that show.

Holy shlitz!, I love his drumset and glad you spreaded the info on the band since I hadn't heard much from them. I STILL am VERY eager to here SOMETHING from the band "Anthrax". I would really like to hear what or if they plan on releasing a CD soon since they are my favorite. I know the new singer sounds sort of like John bush, so we will see. I really don't think the new singer of Anthrax will stick around for very long.

Nothing wrong in playing Trombone at all. In fact, alot of musicians played that or something else before the instrument they play now.
