    Anyone else here play a musical instrument of any description?



    I was lead guitarist in a band up until about May of this year, then I moved to London. Been playing guitar for about 4 years seriously and am self taught. Before that I'd had a few lessons at classical guitar. Saving for an acoustic an when I have one I'll post up some recordings [​IMG]

    I tried to learn the Guitar, but I find it too hard. So I gave up.

    I am not really interested in instruments..

    Dude the guitar is like the easiest instrument to learn, but it just takes a bit of practice to get started. After you have the basic techniques down it's just a case of speeding everything up and you can play most stuff.



    You should try learning again [​IMG]

    I played the trumpet in the sixth grade band. I didn't do seventh due to me not being able to read notes.

    Got to Guitar Grade 3, but gave up years ago due to my involvement with certain websites - Cheers Incogneto =p.

    I love making tunes up on the Piano so might start learning it.

    Learning guitar.



    I've got a cheap $75 one, but I'm working for a much better one (acoustic, of course)



    I might consider electric when I get more familiar with frets.

    I have always played the guitar, never had any lessons. I am not good or great, but I am okay enough to entertain myself and have a fun hobby. I still enjoy playing, but it's less of a passion than when I was a teen.

    I once got myself a guitar and it's just lying on the chair and each time my friends come over someone grabs it and holds it - feeling awkward putting it away because they dont want it to fall over. So there's always someone trying to play on it. So I leave it on the chair.
