Re: Do you own any instrument?

Been playing the clarinet since 6th grade. I haven't looked back since.

Looking to transition to the bass or soprano clarinet or to a string instrument with a low register, particularly the cello. There's just something so hearty and beautiful about the deep sounds of those instruments. I initially preferred playing at a higher octave, but I've come to appreciate the lower octaves of an instrument, to the point of it almost being preferential.

Re: Do you own any instrument?

An ESP baritone guitar, Ibanez RG370 (which is pretty much finished) and a Dean bass guitar somewhere which is gathering dust.

For amps I have a Laney GH50 half stack which I loooooooooove. I have taken a break from playing in bands though for the time being, but my next music purchase (if it ever happens) will be an Orange stack.

Re: Do you own any instrument?

I own an acoustic guitar. Trying to teach myself how to play the last year or so. It's very hard.

Re: Do you own any instrument?

I just remembered that I also have a very old harmonica from Soviet times.

I accept rep.

A decent keyboard. Really wished it was better, but there's always time to change that.

The thing that helped me, when I taught myself years ago, was to find the sheet music for songs I already knew well and learn how to play those. Pick up a fakebook at a music store. They don't cost too much, and usually have a lot of songs in them you might already know.

As you learn to play the songs you know, it helps your confidence, and you get better at doing things like transitioning between chords. Really listen to the songs on your radio or MP3. See if you can pick up chord changes or strum patterns. The more you do it, the better you will get at it.

Re: Do you own any instrument?

I have no musical talent. None. I look at instruments and wish with all my heart I could learn to play them but Iíve tried and failed at so many - piano, guitar, harp, violin, fluteÖthe list goes on - that itís hopeless. Itís quite sad because I come from a long line of musicians and several tried to teach me themselves but the general consensus is that Iím tone deaf. I can play nothing...

...except drums! For some reason I can play drums, but thatís it, despite many dollars and many afternoons spent at the music centre.

I did have a drum kit but I sold it before I moved back east. That was tough to sell; as a kid, a drum kit was the one gift I asked for, without fail, every year (my dad insisted, when it came to buying instruments, it would be a piano or nothing, so it was nothing). Right at the moment I own a couple of native drums (one box, one painted frame), a Celtic drum (BodhrŠn), several African drums, an acoustic guitar (an inherited one that I've never learned to play ) and a kidís lap harp of some kind. This thing:



(but I love it. It's simple enough for me and sounds rather pretty)

Re: Do you own any instrument?

Haven't played seriously in months (really have not been inspired), but I own a Fender Jazz Bass, Fender Strat Guitar, Alesis Micron Synth, a Yamaha electric piano, Ovation Six-String Acoustic/Electric, Yamaha 12-String Acoustic, and a Roland TD-3 Drum Set. There are also a few lower-end instruments that I rarely touch (I think another acoustic, another electric, a beginners keyboard, and a small MIDI keyboard).

Ranking my ability on the instruments: keyboard/piano >>>> bass > drums > guitar.

Re: Do you own any instrument?

I doubt I could even remember all the guitars I have had. My pride and joy was my Sandoval Rhoads Polka Dot V that was stolen from em.

sickening, I had a Gibson SG stolen in a break in a few years ago, fucking junkie shitbags, only consolation is the guy clearly didnt have an eye for gear and left my HiWatt head that was next to it, that thing is worth 4 times as much as the axe (or he probably just didnt want to carry it, its heavy as fuck).
Gear thieves are the dirt worst, take my money, take my car, take the missus but leave my damn axe alone.

everyone Im teaching atm is mid to late 20s and at that stage where they always wanted to learn but never got round to it, its harder to learn new things as you get older and so many people get this thing into their head of "I cant do it, my fingers just dont bend that way" which is bollocks, anyone can learn with enough practice but thats the thing - practice is much more important than the actual lesson and its not fun to spend a few hours a week doing something you cant quite do, anyone with perseverance will do it.

I usually start by finding 2 easy songs they like and learn those, works best if theyre fans of Dylan or Neil Young in particular as pretty much all there songs are easy fuck to learn in a few chords, or best of all is BRUCE's Nebraska album, the title track and State Trooper contain pretty much all you need to learn most blues and folk structures and are piss easy to play.
