Yup, know that one.....any wind powered instrument, whether a woodwind, brass or what have you, give me a fingering cahrt and I can play it.....cant guarentee it will sound anything resembling decent, but I can play it, and will sound ok pretty quickly

So yeah, I can do anything a typical bass, tenor or alto could sing. I can sing soprano too, but it doesn't sound good at all.


Ooh, ahh!

Is there anything you can't do?

I play the drums in a well....I guess we're a metal band, called the Primal Urge.

There are some basic rules to remember when cosplaying.
   1. If you're a hot Asian chick you can wear whatever you want and say it's whatever you want. Lingerie and some Pikachu ears are totally a legitimate costume.
   2. Everyone else needs to GTFO.

I actually advise against getting an organ. As an organ owner myself (which admittedly I got at 99 marked down from 799) I've got to say only buy an organ if you want to play an organ. The keys are not weighted, so you actually aren't playing piano at all.

I hate playing organs. They sound good in church, and if you play them in the right context, but I hate playing them. A nice touch-sensitive pedal'd piano just can't be beat.

That may be true, but Your Air Guitar < my oboe.

Sorry, oboe wins always. They are basically pretty woodwind DUCKS. Silliest instrument ever.

Well my electric organ has loads of keyboard sounds and stuff. Most of them are really cheesy, which is a good thing for my shitty band!

I preface this post by saying: I am a huge band dork.

I really don't like it when people say 'Oh, I can make a sound on this instrument so that means I play it,' so I only list instruments I've played in performances when people ask me, 'What instrument do you play?'

In order of 'I consider myself a (instrument)ist. . .'

Bass clarinet
Clarinet
Alto, contra-alto, and contrabass clarinet
Baritone saxophone
Tenor saxophone

I play clarinet in my university's Concert Band and Symphony Band, and I play bass clarinet in my university's Wind Ensemble.  My uni has a fanastic music program (it's not me bragging, because I'm not actually IN the music department) and the Wind Ensemble is very, very well respected and all three of the concert bands are very good (even the lowest, Concert Band, which is mostly non-music majors and freshmen music majors, is still very good!).  The Wind Ensemble is entirely (except for me) upperclassmen music majors.  How I'm in it, I don't know.

Additionally, I have a concert tomorrow (all three bands are playing; I'm in every piece on the concert).  Wind Ensemble is playing Rhapsody in Blue and the piano soloist is the piano player for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.  I'm so excited!

I wonder if it's possible to be shitty on triangle, I always figured it was just hitting the triangular part with the stick. Or is that ignorant or something?

Right so now we need a bass player and a guitarist, and we're set. Anything else is welcome too, of course. Any accordeonists around? :)

touche! just about anything with strings, then. pianos and harps aren't my strong point. mandolins either, too damn tiny >.<

i don't think i'd record with anything other than bass, double bass or guitar though.

or a chapman stick if i got the chance! ::drool::

As I am sometimes lucky ;) My Great-Grandma died long time ago but her old house is still beside ours - so I got a whole house to put my Instruments in and got enough space to Practice ... I started on Guitar when I was like 11-12, Bass Guitar 1 1/2 years ago and Drums half a year ago ... I kinda shuffeld a lotta stuff till now so I can have fun practicing until i drop on the floor ^^.
Currently playing an Eastwood Airline, some wooden Yamaha Bass and some kinda cheap Mapex Drums - and , also luckily, I got my Hands on a Microphone System with Amp now.

More cowbell! You always could use more cowbell!

Started off at a young age on the piano, from there I moved on to the violin.  I also picked up euphonium and from there I learned trombone, and trumpet to some extent.  Now, I'm working on guitar and its coming along well.  My friends and I are discussing the possibilities of a band. Heh, we'll see how that goes.

I play saxophone, mainly because it's sweet, but partially because I had played clarinet, then realised it sucked, and since saxophone is pretty similar...

  I also plan on learning guitar in the near future.

Singing? voice is an instrument I suppose, drums, as in a set.  I could probally play like the whole marching band thing if I put my mind too it, but I really don't want to.  I've played bass before, but I don't have any skill.  I play a mean recorder solo I learned in the fourth grade, it's pretty damn hardcore.

I play guitar (mainly acoustic, although I just got an electric) and piano. I also sing and I can play bass, but I'm not terribly good at it. I used to play flute back in elementary school when my teacher forced all of his students to learn an instrument.
I too write my own stuff. I've got crappy recordings of my songs on http://www.myspace.com/rachelpickerel">Myspace and http://www.soundclick.com/rachelpickerel">soundclick if you want to hear 'em.

I play Trombone okayish, Euphonium/Baritone pretty well, (I'm in all of the select bands and ensembles for each), I understand the rudiments of Guitar, and I can play melodies on the piano (harmonies much slower). I know I can make sound on a trumpet, but I haven't noodled around with one in a while, so I have no idea what my skill level is at.

I sing Baritone/Tenor, and am in the Jazz Choir (Select singing witout dancing ensemble) at my school as well.

I take AP Music Theory, so my writing is basically only in 4-part chorale style, although I can do basic guitar chord pregressions because they're insanely easy.
