I'm just a little curious as how many musos we have on the Duck. Personally, I play the tenor sax, the Irish tin whistle (that's right folks!) and I can kinda play the guitar. I like to play jazz, ska (reggae) and Funk music as well (on the sax and guitar. NOT on the tin whistle :P).
Post a reply if you feel like showing off!

I've dawdled on the guitar quite a bit. I never became very good. I could play a few songs, but I never really devoted myself to it. I would like to continue, though.

I would love, also, to learn to play the violin. The violin, guitar, and piano are my three favorite instruments and I love when they're played together.

I played clarinet for about a month….heh.^^;

I think cellos sound awesome, I wish there was more modern music with those. XP I've considered learning to play one…but I just never have the dedication to learn an instrument, I always end up losing interest…if I did I might learn bass or guitar too.

I play guitar mainly - gig a bit on blues and jazz, though I used to be a funkasaurus. Tuesday night I play in a restaurant. Also uke.

When I get the chance I like to cut loose on didgeridoo, though I don't get the chance that often ‘cos it’s pretty loud and you have to blow for fifteen minutes solid to really get a trance state going.
Er……..boo!

It's like a cymbali, only you don't use hammers…
You know, like a psaltery!

lol!

Yeah, anyway, like a zither but trapezoid in shape. They're very old and simple, from Eastern Europe; good for teaching kids about music!

I played piano when I was little and French Horn in junior high…and gave them both up as quickly as I could because I finally realized that the best instrument for me is a kazoo. Oh, and I can whistle really well. Seriously, like to the point where it's almost a talent.

I played the trumpet in junior band but later in high school I got bit by the drum bug. I've been a drummer since. I also played other percussion instruments like congas, bongos and timbales. Is funny 'cuz i started drums playing Rock music but later fell in love with tropical music and Jazz.

I'm assuming you're an Aussie like me coz you play the didgeridoo. If so, which restaurant do you play at and where?! (I heart live music. Even if I don't know the band/ artist etc…)

Sorry warefish, I'm English and I live in London - ever since Rolf Harris arrived here with his didge in the 60s, we've been crazy for all things Australian - even Prisoner Cell Block H!

I couldn't play the didge in a restaurant though, unless it was some kind of new age hippie tofu joint! It's all jazzy guitar type stuff. If ever you're in London we'll have to jam.
Er……..boo!

I play rhythm guitar and sing in a band called Absinthe Junk. I also play the electric violin in said band.

For classical and jazz I play saxophone, viola, steel drum, clarinet, piano, bassoon, oboe, and a few others.

Most excellent! You've got the talent, you've got the front and your multi instrumental skills are the badger's nadgers. Now if you could just work a bit of didge in there…:)

I too can play the didgeridoo, but not well it took me forever to learn how to do it, now I mainly use it to annoy the wife and confuse the dogs!
I can also play guitar fairly well, and piano like a star!

All the people in Australia that can actually play the didgeridoo are Aborigines anyway…
It's great to see people from other countries playing an instrument that is so important to Aboriginal culture as well. Good on you guys!

LOL - Hell yeah. You can bet the day I stumble across one I will be rockin' it. My band is all about world influenced instrumentation. XD It's only a matter of time!

I guess we can all come to the agreement that playing the didgeridoo gives instant cred :D!
