So what other instruments does everyone play?? I've been playing guitar for years and recently started playing bass a lot more(played a bit before). I still have a long way to go before I could call myself a bassist. I used to play piano a bit but haven't touched one in years. I'm probably the worst drummer that ever lived. :D But the other night I got to play an instrument for the first time that I have always been intrested in. A violin. And well, I'm not bad at it. My friend(violin owner) was shocked that my bowing was so good for never playing. So now I want one!!! But I sure don't wanna spend much. I might look around this summer for something used.

mandolin

I traded a 12 string dreadnought last summer ( the instrument that I had to have the summer before, and never played) for a A-style mandolin. be honest don't play it as much as I thought, although there still is the intention of learning.

however, I still have a very long way to go to play the 6 string have decently......

would also like to pick up the harmonica..... love the sound of good blues harp.

I play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, do vocals and mess around with anything else that makes music. I play the recorder not too badly and I might get a sax.

All the top shredders at one time learned the drums, thats what gives them such perfect timing. I used to play bass, but now just fool around on it. I do use my VG8 to get other instrument sounds, but in reality its still playing the guitar...........

Started on piano at age 6 and played for about 12 years or so.
Studied cello for 6 years.
Voice for 4 years.
Picked up bass over 20 years ago.
Can play some basic camp-fire chords on the guitar.
Play a little bit of mandolin.
Now my oldest daughter is taking piano lessons, so I'm learning that all over again.

At the end of the day, bass is my weapon of choice!
