Who's a musician?

I played the drums for about 6 years but havent played for about 6 again. Took up the piano two years ago and the drumming really helped there as far as reading the music and the coordination of the left and the right in complex pieces. Everynow and again I'll condition myself to play another segment of the maple leaf rag, I'm about 2/3 through it now and it has never stopped being enjoyable to play.

Its one of Scott Joplins best rags. Theres a sample here: http://www.sheetmusicdirect.us/search/productDetail.do?refer=search&itemId=1000006625

I think it was one of the best selling pieces of sheet music, ever.

Just starting to learn guitar.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

I've played drums for probably about six years now, I guess, maybe closer to five.  I played piano for nine years, but haven't played for about 3 or 4 years since.  I also took up guitar for about six months, but then quit.

This is amazing; it's like 90% of the people on xixax play drums, and yet in real life I can't find a single drummer when I'm looking for one (except for my 14-year-old next door neighbor, and he doesn't count because he sucks and his favorite band is Linkin Park... I mean, it's okay if you like Linkin Park, but for your favorite band to be Linkin Park... I don't know, there's something distressing about that).
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

there is something wrong if someones favorite band is linkin park.  it would clearly mean that that person would have no taste in quality music.
as for me,   i  can play the first few notes of metallicas's "nothing else matters" on guitar.  and i can play "joy to the world" on piano/80's style casio mini keyboard.
thats about it...i suck

I play the recorder (contralto), mainly barroque and modern music. But I stopped having lessons last year when i came to Lisbon, I really hope I can pick it up again later.

I've played all of you like a harp from Hell!  :twisted:



And I used to play trumpet, but am out of practice.  :yabbse-undecided:

I've played piano, xylophone, clarinet, cello, baritone, trumpet, drums, and guitar with widely varying degrees of success and am mostly out of practice. My musical interest is in the computer now.

my rogue is level 40 guitar... but my black elf and mage are around 15 or 16 with percussion.
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.

ive played drums for about thirteen years (only took lessons for the first two), i taught myself how to play harmonica a few months back, i taught myself how to play guitar just before i turned fourteen, and i can sing.  my voice is somewhat limited, but what it can do it does well.  i can only read the most simplistic of sheet musics.

Wait, what has all this been leading up to?

A xixax band that could beat the shit out of The Arcade Fire and Polyphonic Spree put together. What would we call ourselves?
WWPTAD?
