There's clearly lots of music fans here, so I'm curious how many people play music themselves.

I have been mediocre at a few different instruments, like trumpet, guitar, piano and harmonica. I usually get to the point where I can play a few songs I like and then stagnate. I played trumpet in high school band class, but definitely don't have the muscle tone in my lips to play anymore. I also sang with a few different groups of friends who were trying to start a band but we never got past practicing in the garage and playing covers in front of friends.

If I had unlimited time and no other obligations, I'd definitely dedicate it to finally starting a band for realsies.

Cello is actually an instrument that I think is super cool, but I guess the grass is always greener. When I played trumpet a lot of people thought that was so cool but I thought it was lame at the time. :P

If I could learn any concert instrument, I think it would be saxophone. I've never played a reed instrument but I suspect it'd be less painful on the lips than a brass instrument.

I've played piano since I was very young, but dropped it in my young adulthood for a number of reasons. The biggest was that I started to feel like it was an obligation I was doing for everyone but me, and I didn't want anything I played to feel like that.

It took me a while, but I've broken out my old synthesizer and have been playing again recently. My fingers are a bit slower, but otherwise it's like remembering to ride a bike. I had to learn to stop comparing myself to others and just be happy with the way I play, and I enjoy it a lot more now than when I was feeling like I should be the "best" and make everyone else happy.

I do/did play the stage synthesizer and similar key instruments like the piano, harmonica and so on. We had a band and all, moderate success, but eventually I had to leave because I graduated lol.

I've been learning how to play the drums primarily, and really enjoy it.

Also been on and off learning Bass and Guitar, but I have a harder time with them because I struggle to tell which note is which, but with drums that isn't needed.

I was terrible at drums when I tried to learn. I have a really hard time coordinating different things with each hand (which has made learning piano a lot harder as well), and then throwing feet into the mix made it even more difficult. I also can't keep tempo very well and would gradually speed up and have to be told to slow down.

But I do think rhythm is really underappreciated in modern music. There are too many songs that are just constant melody with no gaps between notes, like they think they have to fill every silence.

you could always try it out for yourself (although i dont know how feasible that would be for you irl). i always stand up for my fellow cello( player)s!

I used to play piano (like many here) and ended up stopping, I still have my old keyboard sitting around and I wanna get synths soon! I've been learning digital music production with OpenMPT and FL Studio

I play the piano! I’ve been taking lessons for 12 years now and I’m approaching the end of my final year. While I’m a bit slow when it comes to learning things 100% on my own, it’s still a pretty worthwhile time whenever I try (although my fleeting motivation for many things tends to cause me to stop after a little while before I get to learn it to a decent point,,,)

i've got a bunch of synthesizers that i tinker around with occasionally! i'm not a musician at all and have no idea how to actually play keyboards, but i love creating cool synth sounds and just jamming out with them. my favorite synths that i own are the casio CZ-1000 and the e-mu orbit 9090.

I play the viola! I don't necessarily think I'm great at it, but I love playing it nonetheless : 3

I mostly play the bass these days

I've never had great timing though. Can hit all the notes but it sounds off

I also have an acoustic guitar but I haven't played guitar seriously in a while

I'm in a banddddddd although I like to think of it more as a rock and roll journal.
It's hard to balance expression of creativity and freedom as apposed to what the general market/media of it want - very weird space to be in industry wise, there's a lot of pressure and money involved. prodominantly on the side of promotion agents or whatever, it can be really easy to reach a sort of creative burnout with it but I truly wouldnt be much to society without music
I wish i got into djing instead lol!!!!  :ha:
