I am a lifetime musician, despite having no ears; ironically I do have an ear for music!

My instruments:

1) Piano: I started on my own as a very young boy (preschooler), experimenting on the piano. My mother only discovered my hidden talent when a Sunday school teacher asked her if I could play for her class! Needless to say, Mom got me into piano lessons (April 16, 1984, was my first lesson). I have been playing ever since! Despite my deafness, I had two great (and attractive) teachers who somehow knew how to work with me! My most valuable skill I learned was sight-reading; I can pick up about any piece of music and play it!

2) Percussion: I played all the percussion instruments in my school bands; I was the jack of all trades in percussion.

3) Acoustic Guitar: In September 2001, I decided to buy a guitar (my Epiphone Hummingbird, a lovely guitar). I went through two teachers: My first one didn't know how to read music, and could only teach me what he knew--blues chord progressions! Needless to say, I dumped him after a few months and found a REAL qualified teacher--he was trained classically at IU and was a classical guitarist. Under this new teacher, from 2002-2004, I improved exponentially in my playing. My guitar is great for family campfires and gatherings.

Last but not least--
My Green Violin

In London in 2005, I found a green violin in a music shop, and have been teaching myself violin for two years now. Recently I gave two public solos with it!

What shall I try next? I'm thinking cello!

In order of when I started playing:

Piano (took lessons for ~6 years, starting when I was 6 or 7)
Trumpet (started in 5th grade, played through freshman year of college)
Drums/Percussion (started in 8th grade)
Guitar (started sometime in high school)
Bass (started in college)

I play guitar and bass very frequently (just bought an acoustic guitar a few weeks ago). Drums when I can (when my parents are gone from their house, since that's where the drums are). I'll pick up the trumpet every once in awhile. Haven't really sat down and played a piano in a long time.

Very nice indeed ! How does it sound ?


I started music by playing piano, my mother teached me the basics when I was around 10 years old. I don't have a piano anymore but I use my keyboard (Korg M1) now. My second instrument that I learned was the classic guitar which is my father who teached me the basics and from time to time play it. However, my main instrument is bass guitar, I started with a metal-styled Washburn in 1989, then bought a 5-Strings Fernandez and finally encountered my beloved instument that I still own, my 1977 Fender Jazz Bass (30 years old this year !). I also learned to play drums as I wanted to study the instrument of my main music partners to better understand them  Wink

Hey, nice electronic set. Question though - what do you use the 606 Multi-FX pedal for? Pretty sure the lead guitarist in my former band had that pedal at one point.

Trombone

Trombone because it's the only one where you don't press on keys. (pardon me if the terms are inappropriate)
Saxophone because it's not included in the conventional classical orchestra.
Clarinet, Saxophone and Trombone because I've never seen them as stops on an organ.
Flute because it's the only one that's played sideways.

Trombone is the odd one out; it's a brass instrument, not a woodwind which all the others are (despite the materials they're made of). Saxophones are woodwind instruments.

I learned the trombone first because when I joined the band I had braces and it was the embrochure that was the most comfortable. The clarinet was my primary instrument tho.
