Who else here is a musician or plays an instrument?

Recommended Posts

I have tried several times to learn guitar. For some reason my brain and fingers just can't seem to line up. I played clarinet in middle school and sang in choir in high school. I can read music, just can't seem to get things lined up playing guitar.

When I was 12 I got a very nice Framis folk guitar for Christmas. I had big plans!

My parents hired a lady who was giving guitar lessons on the army post where we lived.  First day she asked me to hold out my hands. She shook her head and said, “short stubby fingers.. you’ll never play a guitar!”  And she left!

I was devastated!  I never did learn but for some reason I still have that guitar! It’s sitting on display in my basement rec room.

I play Bass guitar.  I started back in the late 60's and have played off and on in different "garage bands" over the years.  I haven't played much in the last 20 years.  I have a Fender Bass and a Fender Bassman 100 Amp.

I just finished this a couple weeks ago, I've tried to learn guitar on and off for about 25 years and my fat fingers put me off it every time. I built this from a kit with 5 strings to give me a little more string spacing, so far it seems to be helping clean my chords up. I've got a Tele style built also, I just need to finish the soldering.

MTrumpet player here.  Was in a very popular cover band named SOUTH in New Orleans in the late 60's to mid 70.  Big Chicago and BST fan of course (horns) and now into Dave Mathews Band (DMB). Rashawn the trumpet player is one of the best I have ever seen.

Nice job, that looks amazing. 

Thanks, I wanted it to look like a vintage one so I went with a honey/iced tea burst look.

In Grade 4, the music teacher calmly took the recorder from my hands and said "go join the choir, son". I stayed in the choir throughout school and for a couple years sang harmony with a female lead singer in a local, on again/off again rock band. It is a regret of mine (and I don't have many) that I never did learn an instument. Piano music speaks to me and I wish I'd learned.

Nice kit. I had to sell my Mapex M Birch 6 piece kit about 10 years ago when the company I was working for decided to shut down.

I didn't let this go, though:

I was never wild about tube lugs, but I really do like that wrap. My next set will probably be Ludwig maple, or even Mahogany, whenever that might occur. For a brief time, I had a Pearl Mahogany tom, 11x13, that sounded utterly amazing.

Trumpet player here. I was in the Penn State Blue Band a looong time ago. I currently play in a community band in Bellefonte, PA. My two sons are trumpet players too. I sang in our church choir for 40 years, and now direct the choir. Music is a big part of my life.
