    It has been a few years. I am a percussionist. I was a drummer in a Heavy Metal band back in high school. Actually, we were called Offspring (before the band of the same name who made it big). I miss jamming.

    We did record some stuff. But, it's been so many years, I have no idea where any of it is. We were played on local radio back in my home town. We had some positive responses. This was back in the mid-80s.

    My mom MADE me take piano lessons back in elementary school, and I hated it, and quit after 3 yrs. Now that I'm much older and wiser, I wish I would've stuck with it, there are so many affordable electronic keyboards out there, I'd love to be able to buy one, but there's no sense in it--the only thing I can still play is "The Entertainer" from the movie The Sting, had to learn that by heart for a recital!:(

    I'd be in heaven if I could be in a group that does that Stomp performance.

    NO ! Corolla, turntables dont count, real instruments were talking.
    I hate DJ's harping on about gigs they've done, all they do is play
    other peoples music, they are sad people who never learnt to play a REAL instrument.

    Acoustic and electric guitar. I'm a good rhythm player. Takes me a couple of times thru a song to find the chords. Solo's take forever to figure out and learn. I've been playing for over 30 years.

    I am in a band at the community college. It is a not-for-credit course. The most fun part (other than getting to play with other people) is that our final exam is a free concert in the auditorium at the school. Been doing the rock ensemble thing for over 3 years.

    Once upon a time I played the trumpet and french horn - that was in elementary and high school (concert band, marching band and dance band). I really enjoyed it, but haven't touched a horn since 1965!
