Question How musical are we?

I just wondered what musical instruments people can play?

I play the drums, and am trying very hard to learn guitar.... any tips welcome!

I work at a music shop, chuckie, and found that most are inspired by trying to play songs they luuuuuurve! Otherwise, I recommend lessons!

The ones that matter were piano when I was 6, violin when I was 9, and viola when I was 19.

I learned the recorder at school, but never got anywhere.

I can't play an instrument, but I can sing quite nicely, not solo though, in large choirs. Bass-baritone. (Can't reach high tenor notes, can't reach low bass notes).

I can sing the blues when I've got a little help from my friends.
my paintbrush and my dishes are a good combo and my desk puts out a good deep beat.

Plastic bags are pretty fun.

I used to play the piano pretty well - don't have one to practice on right now tho' - someday...

And I sing. But you already knew that.

edit: oh...and every once in awhile I pick up my guitar & practice scales... but I get distracted. The piano's easier...you don't have to build up calluses

I've been known to get drunk at piano bars and sing along.

But seriously piano, flute, and get ready to laugh I used to play handbells for church
