just out of curiosity...how many people play a band instrument? no string instruments...just brass, woodwind and percussion. anyone? anyone?
i myself play...well. you guys can take a little guess. it's a brass instrument. here are your choices:
4. french horn/mellophone
anyway...does anybody else play a band instrument? flute, clarinet, timpani, quads, trumpet, tuba, etc.
if you do, post it. heck, if you play any musical instrument post it i don't care.

Well, you said to post even if you don't play a band instrument, so I will. I play guitar, but I'm self-taught so I guess technically I've never really learned any muscial instrument (I can't even read music, if that gives you an idea).
Oh, and seeing you posted a poll and answered it... I'm guessing you play...
4. french horn/mellophone
was that cheating? :p
maybe you're just being tricky though.

Technically, Guitar is a jazz band instrument so....I play a band instrument.
Been playin' guitar for a couple years. Not serious about it, but it's fun as heck.

Once upon a time, I was a trumpeteer.
Once upon a time, I bathed with my cousins.
Those days are all gone.
I play piano for a couple of high school jazz bands.

Played Trombone for 5 years, gave it up in high school. Decided to play Hockey, and work for the school paper instead. Life is full of trade offs...
I can play a rubber band.

.......music will fill the air.

yeah, i play the french horn. and i think i'm pretty good. i realized i f*cked up when i answered french horn on the poll...oops. oh well. and since i can play the mellophone, too, then i guess that means i can technically play the trumpet and baritone too...except for the notes sound different. i know the fingerings for notes is what i mean to say because mellophone, trumpet, and baritone all have the same fingerings.

I started playing skin banjo since 6th grade, now I'm quite alright at it, also thrumming my untuned guitar along with some primal hardcore-emo shouts/outbursts + some chords on the piano.

There were two kids sitting in the park talking and one said:
"My dad can play the piano by ear!"
"Oh, that's nothing," said the other "My dad fiddles with his dick!"
ha ha ha ha hahhh, classy

well ive been playing the violin for 6 years and it still sucks...

I used to play the viola but it sucked, or I sucked at playing it. Then I started getting interested in the drums, but at my school they required at least two years of piano before you can learn how to play the drums. So I took piano for a year, it was ok. But my teacher was stupid. Now I dont play anything. :(

well, since you've already had two years of piano, then why don't you try out for drums in band? i didn't know you needed two years of piano to play drums... i'm qualified then :)

I sing, but my self confidence problem (that being my total lack of) makes sure people never hear it. Unless I'm drunk. Or bored. Or both.
I also play the spoons, people underestimate how much of a skill that actually is.

That is the most valuable talent I've heard of in a long time.
