    Well I use to play Bb Clarinet and Bass Clarinet in Middle School. I was picked to go to all district but I was unable to go to the tryouts thanks to custody issues... I recently sold the Clarinet and bought a cheap but good Violin. It just came in today, and I can for the most part play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I use to play around on my younger sister's guitar and was going to take it up but she gave it away with amp and all... Anyway, do any of you play a instrument?<br><br><a href="http://s162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/?action=view&current=SD534265.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/th_SD534265.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://s162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/?action=view&current=SD534266.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/th_SD534266.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://s162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/?action=view&current=SD534267.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/th_SD534267.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://s162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/?action=view&current=SD534268.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/th_SD534268.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><a href="http://s162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/?action=view&current=SD534269.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t267/Busted11290/th_SD534269.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    I used to play the piano as a kid, though its been a good 16 years since I've done it formally I can still knock out a few tunes and struggle through anything written (party trick- I can play all the Legend of Zelda OoT songs, FF VII and a few Anime tunes lol)

    I played the violin for about 5 years when I was a kid, and tuba in Jr High band, but, all I really play anymore are guitar and bass guitar. Even with them, most of my attention has gone to building my own electric guitars and basses, not so much playing. So very rusty..

    I have been playing guitar since I was 9 and I'm 31 now so.....long time! :face: I only took a half year of lessons but thats all you need really. I had a drum kit and recently bought a bamboo flute at a yard sale for a dollar. It is awesome but very hard to play.

    Thanks, I got the idea from this YouTube video. <br><br><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXPACZktOP8" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Spaceman Dominator Six String Fretless Bass</a><br><br>Most of the guitars I've made have been made from junk. One is a 5-string acoustic with a ski for the neck & a metal salad bowl for the body and a street sign for the sound board. One is a two string with a 4" I.D. aluminum tube for the neck and body. It's pretty funny to see peoples faces when you start rockin out on some cobbled together gob of junk and some strings.

    I play a wee bit of cello ("play" might be too strong a word, lol), and I'm fairly decent on a keyboard. I used to have several synths, but I've moved on to other interests and only have my trusty Alesis Ion left. Still fun to whip out every so often an freak out the neighbors with weird and scary sounds. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    I've built and played mountain dulcimers for nearly 40 years. Also build and play a variety of Baltic Psalteries and Spanish Rabel folk fiddles.
