So I was scoring the hippie test stuff and got to wondering what instrument everyone plays, if you play anything. This may have been a subject before, if it was, I'm sorry, but I don't think I ever read it.
I play extremely cheap electronic drums. Just 8 pads and 1 pedal. I still consider myself a drummer though, because I'm pretty good. I can't do stuff too fast or requiring extreme coordination though. I can't for example, mimic the double bass thing on every other bass of 'Radio Ga Ga' whilst simultaneously doing the high-hat. Then again, that's a drum machine ;)
Trumpet, cornet, euphonium and today I learnt to pluck away at an acoustic guitar. I also have limited talents in the trombonery section of a brass band! h0h0!
Oh my god man ya like moi!! I play dem brass joints fa 6 years in da military band, same... neva can get down to the troms, but yeah now am out of the stiff regiment loosening up to compose some reggaeblues on my piano and keyboards or be having lessons out of my ex on the guitar.
either way re creating the Queen vibe is always cool!
Man those were the days
Hey you guys play some really interesting instrums!
Was a percussionist for 7 years while getting my public education.
Learned to play folk on the guitar
Now I'm learning to play the mandolin
and I love it.
I take it with me if i am going anywhere where i would have to wait a spell so i can practice a while.
But I sing much better than I play.
The blues, jazz, some rock, some country but country is a real turn off for me and it makes me ill that i can sing it so well.
***leans over to peuk***
but folk is ok though.....not really country you know.....more authentic
I play drums, clarinet, cello, piano, and a little violin..I have an electronic drum set because my parents complained about the noise my other one use to make...but it looks and sounds eactly like real drums and gives you all these cool sounds....it's a roland v-model I think...it's actually better than a real drum set....and the cymbals look (well they're black) and are round like cymbals..it's really cool...it cost a pretty penny...but at least it decreases the noise pollution in my house...
heh, I love in 'Mr Hollands Opus' how the trumpet player empties the spit valve on to the flute players foot..funny stuff that but it got me into a lot of trouble...who knew that you weren't suppose to do it during a recital?
