As the title asks, what musical instruments do you love playing, and why?

I'm currently playing in a hobby-like band (so we only play music for the locals). I'm currently playing the drums, it's actually very fun. 3 of my friends play in this band, we're having a lot of fun during some sessions.

That's really cool. What kind of music do you play?

I took some piano when I was younger and really loved it. If I had a piano, I would continue with that. Instead, I have a violin which I am in no way near mastering at all. I take lessons over the summer and then have good intentions in the fall, but pretty soon that fades away. My teacher, a talented young lady who used to be a student at the school where I work, is amazed at how much I remember from one summer to the next. Mostly she teaches me using classical and classical folk pieces (at a very very beginning level), but when I get around to it, I pluck out fiddle tunes that you hear at contra dances or that morris dancers would dance to.

Addicted to The Sims since 2000.

All sorts of genres ranging from rock to jazz.

Piano is really cool too. I hope you'll get a new one soon.

My favourite instruments are the Oud, Violin, Synthesizer, Piano, Pungi, Bass, and Sitar. I never really liked the Guitar much oddly.


I know the Oud. That's great too.

Hm... I wonder? =P

My main instrument is currently the oboe, but as my username says I also love the bassoon. I've been playing the oboe for nearly two years and the bassoon for over ten.

I also like playing the saxophone, although I'm not really proficient at it as I've never took the time to actually learn it. The same goes for the bass clarinet. I got my bass clarinet right before I got inspired to learn the oboe, so that's what happened there.

♫ Keeping this here until EA gives us a proper playable woodwind/brass instrument ♫

Piano, keyboard and keytar. My first successful riff was the opening riff to Deep Purple's Smoke on the Water.

My schooling didn't include how to read music notes. You had to join the orchestra for more information. It was bad enough I smelled like death, but "Death Plays the Tuba" would be enough to get me ostracized even further. I actually learned with the help of stickers on a keyboard after graduation.

Seriously, the Grim Reaper is a lousy band geek.

E-guitar and bass are 2 I love.
This is lovely too.

If there'll be too many humans wherever I have to go, I'd rather stay home

I love to play with piano that my mother gifted me at my last birthday. She bought that piano for me through musical instruments coupons . I have also created some musical themes by practicing on the piano. Sometimes it really feels amazing to playing with music & to creating something new.

My favorite musical instrument is the guitar. I learned it when I was a teenager, and wanted to be a singer, but gave that up to be a poet. As a result, I have not played the guitar in several years, but think of going back to it from time to time, this time to play classical pieces on it.
