So, per the title, what instruments do you guys/gals play??

My history goes back to the 6th grade when I joined band to play the trumpet. I played through out middle and high school, switching to drumline in my senior year. When I was 15 my dad bought me a fender squire strat because I told him I wanted to learn guitar.

I'm 28 now and my main instrument is the guitar. I know it's one of the most popular instruments to play, but when you think about the versatility it has, it seems apparent to me why it's so popular. At this point I can play just about any instrument that doesn't involve a reed at the mouth, but I mostly stick to drums and guitar.

I'd really love to hear from you guys about your favorite instruments and styles of playing!!

Not sure what to qualify as playing versus just owning.

Stuff I've used in a recording:

>Guitar (Kinda boring now. Really want to get an electric guitar made that can play 1/4 steps. 1/2 step tonality gets kinda boring and repetitive. Not sure if sitars can be electric. I'm far from a gear queer.)
>Drums. (Main instrument.)
>Bass
>Banjo
>Saxophone
>Theremin
>MPC lol
>Vocals, because your voice is an instrument, damn it.

I've posted this pic before, I should take an up to date one with the instruments I have now but I keep a lot of my instruments at my studio now. I've played guitar the longest at 15 years - I also got a Squier Strat as my first guitar and I still play it every day, I love it to bits. I mainly play bass in my band though. People say I have a fresh distinctive bass sound, I think it's because I'd been playing it for 5 years thinking it was a mandolin before a friend said "hey cool bass guitar". I was like... hmmm... makes sense...

More than just owning a lot of instruments, I can play all of them except my trumpet... I just can't get the hang of proper embouchure. I'm excited to be recording just now with my band and getting the opportunity to use them all! We played 3 gigs the week before last - opening the local blues festival supporting Dave Arcari on the Friday, supporting the Italian garage rock band Cut on the Saturday then we did an acoustic set on the Sunday afternoon for the first time. It was fun but a bit ramshackle, it was an excuse to muck about with my mandolin and glockenspiel and melodica and stuff in a live environment. I also sang lead vocals for the first time to an audience so that was fun too.

I've been playing Scottish bagpipes since... 2007 I think. Fell in love with them after watching a Korn concert and decided that's what I wanna play.
I've played in a band a lot of years, and even went to compete in the 4th grade world championships in 2013. Nowadays... not so much that I want to.

Besides that I'm learning to play guitar and piano. Creates some stuff on the computer in FL studio. Also have a lot of other small strange stuff that I record in my home studio (kalimba, djembe, pan flute, analog synths etc)

Pic related. It's me from some tears back

Daisy rock kind of sucks. I mean you can get something lighter, smaller and with a more unique tone for the same price from Danelectro but I'm glad someone bought the "for girls" gimmick and loved it. On the other hand that thing is probably more collectable and still really fucking easy to play if you struggle with the physical demands of playing bass I actually do due to a thumb injury but I have supportive splints now

I'm playing a fender mex jazz though. Conventional as shit but absolutely does the job. If I had more money it'd be a rickenbacker.

>>452078 Nope I got because I'm a lovely person, so you can see the love in me as well as hearing it and feeling it when I rock the house. And with the fiery bass strap I have (which would be cheesy on any other guitar) it becomes like Christ's/my sacred heart of mercy and hope! It actually roars live on a big rig too, every gig I play people always say "that was awesome, but what is that ridiculous bass you've got? It sounds surprisingly monstrous like". I don't struggle with big basses either Though I admit it was partly a reaction to my last band telling me "we need to look like a real rock band that knows what we're doing" and "you need to get a bass that's gonna make people jizz their pants", when I saw it in the shop I was like "this is it. this is me. this is the bass guitar I was destined to play" It was only £100 too!

Sooo, any other pros lurking around 420chan? Drummerfag here currently making the bread happen with gigs, session and teaching. Should get into making somekind of online material and integrating the business side of internet more deeply into my schedule. Currenty in Scandinavia and the field is quite good, crap weather though. I would love to hear how's the field of working musicians in your country.

And yeah, what like 16 years of drums and percussion and roughly 9 years of bass. W/ some semi-forced piano and singing lessons which were quite meh. Nu-soul, r 'n' b, hip-hop and jazz is the shit mayne. Pic unrelated.

You bought it for the audacity?

Fair. And £100 is well below what they cost new. I have seen fender squiers sound good going through the right rig though so if it sounds massive that's probably more down to your other gear and how you play it. Which reminds me I need to work on my tone. I've got the thumb aids so I can fret without my tendons catching on the base of my thumb when I apply pressure so I don't have that excuse now.

Absolutely! I only got it three days ago. Still learning how to program it precisely, all it’s features, and how to control those features. It’s my first big boy synth. It’s just a bitch and a half to try and route midi from my 88 key digital piano to the deepmind, my microbrute, a korg volca Keys, my iPad, as well as softsynths on my computer,.

I feel ya. I used to play the whole daisy chain game with a workstation and a couple of synths. Now I’m mostly in the box and my desk doesn’t look like a sci-fi a starship control board anymore.
