I play a very little bit of piano but due to having a great pianist in the family, I don't need to. Now, the only other instrument I ever studied was, for some insane reason, Viola, in the third and fourth grades.

Now I'm about to retire, I am thinking of dusting off the trumpet I have not had out of it's case, other than to oil the valves, for over thirty years. I've got two sets of golf clubs in the garage as well.

Guitar and keyboard. By popular demand, I don't sing.

Clarinet - I play in the local city orchestra - and Pete, if you live down Redlands way, when you dust off that trumpet and are looking for a group, we welcome trumpeters of all capabilities.

Drums, guitar, vocals (not in great shape for that anymore, though). Wifey does piano, organ, clarinet, and hand bells.

Kudos! I also play tenor sax, primarily blues and classic rock. Keep the music coming!

I am playing drill and sander, I love the sound of a good orbital sander in the early morning when the birds sing.

I struggled with the guitar for several years, and came to realize I will never be Bonamassa. Selling my left handed guitars now.

None. Tone deaf and can't hold a tune. But I do enjoy listening, and to those of you who CAN play... Thank you!

But your question reminds me of a story:

On our way home after a long day, we didn't feel like making dinner. We also didn't want a drawn-out sit-down meal, or fast food. We found a small local restaurant where we knew we could get a quick burger or some similar comfort food.

The place was surprisingly crowded. There was one table, a high-top deuce (two-seater) near a small area that was apparently used for a stage. It was mid-week and early, so we didn't expect entertainment.

Here's where this story ties in with the subject of this thread:

We didn't really notice that people were bringing in instruments until the second time someone asked "what instrument do you play?"

Turns out it was a an informal open-mike night for local musicians. They all came here on a Tuesday night and just sort of randomly took turns jamming.

Now remember, we just wanted a quick burger and then to head home after a long day. But it would be rude just get up and walk out on a performance. Especially from the table right in front of the stage, with all the other musicians sitting behind us.

We were an audience of two, surrounded by performers.

We soon forgot all about wanting to get home. We were having a great time! It was a memorable night.

I play a little guitar, but my rig is a bit of a power hog; so I'm selling it.

It's those 'capabilities' which will be interesting. I rose to the level of solo cornet in several brass bands over time in younger days, but then when I went into medical practice there was no time for music practice. I got a trumpet when I had to give up the brass band thing, but I found mucking around on a Yamaha C605 electric organ more convenient in those days, hence the hiatus. It will be interesting to see if it is "just like riding a bike". I suspect NOT..!

Peter B. It is suprising how much comes back as soon as you pick up the instrument. Just have to get the chops back in shape.

"None. Tone deaf and can't hold a tune. But I do enjoy listening, and to those of you who CAN play... Thank you!"

Capt. Tom if you are truley tone deaf you are a rare person. Never too late to try!

Guitar, drums, vocals.
Percussionist all through middle and HS, picked up guitar about 8th grade.
The normal stuff...marching, stage and concert band, and outside of chorus, was lead vocal for a couple of garage bands back in the 60's/early 70.

More of a Buffett, Country rock type now days. Roll with my acoustic/electric and play when I have time. Not much of that anymore though

No formal training but play a passable guitar and tolerable mandolin. For the non players try the banjo, you at least will never have to be bothered by tuning and such
