Hi All. I'm Paul from sunny old England. I've been visiting this site for a while and after countless hours spent on here until silly hours in the morning (2:29AM now!) I though I might as well join!

Just wondering if any of you play instruments, what they are and what kind of music you're all into. I'm a bass player and my favourite bands/artists are (in no particular order) Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Peter Gabriel, Sarah McLachlan and Keb' Mo'. How about you?

I've played the saxophone for a good 4 1/2 years, both the alto and the tenor. I rented a trombone a couple of months ago, but that didn't work out too well.

Hi, Paul,

A bunch of us are musicians. I play reeds (I know, big surprise), Logan22L is a bassist, I think Superfly plays a bit of guitar or bass... UAL747 is a pianist. There's a number of others who will probably chime in.

I'm primarily a jazz baritone saxophonist, but I also do a bit of legit playing (mostly on bass clarinet), pit work in shows, and I see some action in R&B horn sections. It keeps me out of trouble and covers vacation expenses a couple times a year.

I play the five string banjo, mainly old time style American folk music (pre 1950s).

I play the piano and have been playing it for a while now. I personally like the whole Rag Time era and also Peer Gynt. Nothing can beat Scott Joplin in my opinion.

In my profile I mention guitars. I love acoustic, but I wouldn't be against learning electric. I thought about the violin, too, since there are some women who love that, too  Wink.

I've never been able to get good at an instrument (I've tried piano, cello and oboe), but I do sing.

I spent six years in the children's chorus at the Metropolitain Opera, and now I'm in the concert choir at the University of North Dakota. We have a European tour (Czech Republic and eastern Germany) coming up this May.

Pretty cool stuff, I have to say.

I'm the lead vocals for my band, "The Rat Bastards". We're a punk band, that is more like 80s punk rather than the whiny, commercialized shit of today. I used to play lead guitar along with the vocals, but I have since found a better guitar player than me.

Piano, mainly. It was my major in college, I play mainly classical music. I got my degeree in Education, not performance. For performers here, UAL747 is a very accomplished pianist.

For orchestral instruments, I played oboe. I have played all the band instruments in one group or another, but oboe is definitely my favorite. I really enjoyed the symphonic parts for the oboe.

Airlinerfreak...I agree about Scott Joplin...I've got a book of his music here, and I really enjoy playing those pieces. One of my favorites of his is a piece called "Elite Syncopations". Have you ever played that one?

PMN - Saxdiva is right about there being quite a few musicians here. And, BTW, welcome to the site!

Saxdiva - I played bari sax in the jazz band in high school...I loved the instrument. I've enjoyed reading your posts about your playing experiences.

I must have been separated from BananaBoy at birth,

I too play the Piano, Clarinet, and Sax (alto though). Also had years of voice training.

I love most styles of music. Mozart to Madonna, Sinatra to Steps, it's all good...
