Does anyone play an instrument and if so what which one(s)? Ive been playing guitar for the last eighteen years or so. Ive played in bar bands in the past hoping to get a career off the ground as to make music a profession but it never materialized. There have been times during which I rarely picked an instrument up due to demands on my time, but all in all, Ive always played an instrument of some sort. I used to play cello and bass when I was in high school and also took piano lessons on and off. Im also not bad on a drum kit and seem to have a decent ability on any given instrument with the notable exception of the harmonica. Ive been playing guitar quite often as of late and I'm enjoying it more than ever. Over the years, Ive gravitated toward a number of musical genres and styles including rock, blues, metal, classical and jazz. So, are there any other musicians on the forum?
