I do bass guitar as a hobby and play a mix of old funk and rock with the latter being primarily queen albeit with some exceptions. My primary guitar is a Yamaha Nathan east 5 string with my secondary being an Ibanez sdgr 5 string
I play, and nowadays, restore guitars and bass. My primary guitars are a couple of decent Japanese Stratocaster and Les Paul knockoffs. My bass is another Jap-made P Bass that I defretted myself on a whim.
I play the piano about half of my life, mostly Debussy, Chopin, Bach and some others too, but also Queen. And some imrovisation. I find it rather imprortant and useful skill. I have 2 pianos: digital Roland piano and acoustic vertical piano which is in quite bad condition. If I had the knowledge I have now I wouldn't have bought this piano back in 2010. Would be nice to have some high class grand piano... Nothing can compare to this really. Ocassionally I play the guitar. My brother bought some cheap 7/8 guitar in 2011 inspired by my musical adventures but he quickly abandoned that. It is in my room now.
Musically, now I got nothin'
But 25 years ago or so ... I had infinitesmally slightly more than nothin'
I could play the beginning of "Chopsticks" on piano
I could play the bass line of "25 or 6 to 4" on one string of an acoustic guitar.
I could usually sing in tune in a college church guitar choir, but only if no one was singing harmony next to me.
Yeah, I got nothin' ... Please ... walk away slowly ... and carry on normally ...
Yes. I play guitar, bassguitar, keyboards and I (try to) sing. And i try to get some decent notes out of every instrument I lay my hands on.
For anyone who cares. here's a teaser for the upcoming album of my band Cornwall: link
You're the drummer inu-liger?
Cool. older photo as avatar. I wouldn't trust changing mine at this point with the site issues.
That was cool. Thanks for sharing. I wish i were still in the game. The best i get now is singing karaoke.
I thought the drums were pretty exceptional and drove the song.
Can't stand the mobile Britney/telemarketer mics but they sounded good. I'm a stickler for Mic stands. Angled or not.
Singer's not bad.
Anyways. I'm frustrated because i live with family since i got laid off 2 years ago. The new job is now officially full time for the last 4 Months so I'm coordinating getting the fuck out of this dig right now cause it's killing me.
I used to practice/play about 2-5 hours a day. Now it's 2-5 hours per WEEK.
So my guitar skills are suffering badly.
Long winded apologetic introduction aside....i play bass guitar (rock/original/funk ish) guitar and can drum but I'd never be the first choice in any band for drumming.
I sing better than i play guitar, prob play bass a little lesser than singing, though I've been told I'm an awesome bass player and have had my share of guy crushers on my nuts (so to speak/ non gay) admiration so. ..maybe that's true.
I play guitar well on an electric, but almost always practice on acoustic, just trying to get better when i can and leave something with a legacy.
But my legacy will likely be in art.
Thanks for sharing that inu
Yes, I am the drummer (in a rock 'n roll band ;) )
There are better sounding wireless mics out there they could be using, but of course they require $$ :P
One of our priorities this year is funding recording sessions so that we can begin recording our full length album.
Our lead guitarist who is blind enjoys the freedom wearing wireless microphones gives him to roam about more on the stage :)
Good for you. Me too. All the coolest musicians play guitar :)
If you use the search function there are some good guitar threads on here, including some pictures of Queenzoners' guitars. Some of them have Red Specials -- I'm very jealous! I've a Gibson Melody Maker, on which I play ham-fisted solos and slightly better rhythm.
