I would have loved to have a teacher like you have, modestmatt.
Alas, too late now to switch back to the guitar again :(

Nevertheless, sometimes I'm glad that it came as it came, as bass players are always badly needed, no matter which kind of music you play :D

And every true musician loves a decently played bass. :wink:

I started messing about on a guitar when I was 7, but only really got into it in a big way when I was 11 and have been hooked ever since. I also play bass and mandolin reaonably well. However, in the last year i have had a lot of trouble with carpal tunnel syndrome :cry: I've tried physiotherapy and anti-inflammatoires, with little success.

I played drums and keyboard at school too, I was OK at them but nothing more.

I'm still trying to play the acoustic guitar, 3 years now. I don't like strings pretty much.

:D

I guess my business is wind instruments. I play the flute, 2 years now.
But I bought a keyboard and I'm trying to learn to play it, because I want to join a band.

:D

Only one instrument-guitar (acoustic-and a relative beginner)
You are all so talented-wow! Three or four instruments. Don't think
I could manage more-I can't compete.

Maybe I'll take up the triangle and add percussion to my repetoire. :lol:

Violin: 1997-2003
Guitar: 2005-present

& I sang as part of a choir from 1999-2004, then left, and have recently joined another one. I also own a ukulele, but I haven't got around to learning it yet, so it just sits around and looks pretty, gets attacked by visiting friends, or becomes core to experimental caterwaulings.

i was a guitar major in college...i play classical and contemporary folkish things.

i play some piano, but have sorta dwindled from it. i've played cello for a few years, and have been practicing it and violin a lot more as of late. accordian, glock, and drums i sorta just doodle with. that's it. it's really hard to have a practice schedule because i play 3 dominantly, and others here and there. and i try to stick singing practice when i can't be around an instrument.

i have no friends or life, so it works out in the end.

Man, I had a teacher in the school I went to, and I totally (perhaps foolishly) rebelled against whatever she told me to do.

I was to recite the national anthem one time, and instead I performed an acoustic blues imrpovisation.

Completely failed that class, haha.

Though, ironically, I've grown more on the guitar than any of her students. Boring guitar teachers really can kill the possibility of love for the guitar.

Anyway,

I play the Guitar (usually acoustic), Electric Bass (unfortunately not upright acoustic), and Mandolin.

I love them all to death, and I really do wish I would purchase a drum set. There is a barn on our land that would be perfect for setting it up.
