Do you play an instrument?

So, do you play an instrument? If yes, what is it? Are you good at it or just getting started or sort of in between? How long have you played? Have you ever played for people (i.e. in church)? And yes, if you don’t play an instrument, you may say that you can play the radio or MP3 player rather well.
I’m a guitar player, and I’ve been playing for about three or four years, I think. I’ve been told I’m good, but I think I’m in between. :wink: In any case, I’m good enough to play in church with the rest of our instrumentalists.
I’m not as good at these instruments: Hammered dulcimer, harmonica, bongo drums, keyboard, Irish whistle, maracas, and didgeridoo.October 19, 2008 at 1:21 pm #44278
I can play “Twinkle twinkle little star” on the hammered dulcimer. But that’s all I can play.October 19, 2008 at 1:38 pm #44279
Let’s see… I can play the hammered dulcimer (in between), harmonica (getting started), keyboard (getting started), Irish penny whistle (in between), maracas (getting started), didgeridoo (getting started), ocarina (getting started), tonette (getting started), and accordion (getting started).
I’ve played the Irish penny whistle ever since my hands were big enough to play it and I’ve played all the other ones I listed since my family got them.
I have played for other people before, a few times.October 19, 2008 at 1:44 pm #44280
Whoa you people play a ton of instruments! All I play is the piano, but I kind of put that on hold since the Fall baseball season started. I guess you could say I’m ‘in between’. My dad just bought a hammered dulcimer… maybe since all three of you guys play it I should pick it up too.October 19, 2008 at 3:14 pm #44281
I can’t play a thing to save my life.October 19, 2008 at 5:37 pm #44282
I play the piano, the djembe drums, and I thought the drum kit was fun but a necessary piece of the set is in a different part of the house, so I can’t play it anymore. I don’t really perform, except for my piano teacher, of course, who is my Mom.October 19, 2008 at 5:53 pm #44283
Hammered dulcimer is awesome to play. I’m just getting started with chord patterns, which means I can play almost anything I want to. Lots of fun!October 19, 2008 at 7:51 pm #44284
I play the kazoo.
No, I don’t, haven’t touched one in ages.
I can make the standard didgeridoo sound with effort and will sometimes walk around doing so but I’m not really interested in playing it. Leave that to the Australians…
I can play maybe five really simple pieces on the piano but I’m generally lost when faced with anything music related.
My dad says I should get into the musical industry (because he hears me singing to myself) but that’s shameful, biased flattery. I would like to learn to play the guitar though, or rather I’d like to be good at it and skip the learning process altogether because the idea of teachers scares me very much.October 19, 2008 at 8:07 pm #44285
I was not taught to play any instrument that I play. All of my knowledge comes from either experimentation, reading a book, or reading articles online. There’s a lot to be said for skipping the teacher!October 19, 2008 at 11:34 pm #44286
Oh, and I can whistle tunes. Does that count?October 20, 2008 at 12:08 am #44287
I can’t whistle :cry:
But I play the vocal cords (you know, in your throat) I sing at church on some Sunday’s, and I play a tiny bit of piano, I wished I could play the guitar or violin, or flute or something but I get discouraged rather easily when it comes to instruments…they are just so confusing!October 20, 2008 at 12:36 pm #44288
LoL. I play the vocal cords too.October 20, 2008 at 12:51 pm #44289
*can’t whistle either*October 20, 2008 at 1:05 pm #44290
I can kinda whistle. And I can clap my hands in time with the music.October 20, 2008 at 4:31 pm #44291
I can’t whistle.
