Hmmm... I think it takes something else too! [In reply to] Can't Post

Some sort of understanding of 'notes'... Laugh

Above it says you have been playing acoustic guitar - do you play other instruments too Morok?

Violin and piano. And nice to see you around these parts! And glad you're [In reply to] Can't Post

learning an instrument!

I'm a violin teacher, so I'm always in favor of people learning instruments (especially ones with strings!).

My grandmother played trombone (and piano) [In reply to] Can't Post

She was a terrific pianist when she was younger, and only played trombone in a small band for a few years in the 1920's. But when I was a young whippersnapper and didn't believe she could possibly have played a trombone, she dug it out from a back room and proceeded to show me (40 years later!). I'm sure if she could, you can!Cool

Here's my guitar family: [In reply to] Can't Post

photo Actually only the three on the right are guitars. The biggest one is the one that got me through my teen years. The second from the left is my old ukulele, and the one on the left is a toy that's not really playable. I have a similar fiddle family. And a harp family. I'm an instrument hoarder.

I also, as a friend would say, paw at the piano occasionally.

I used to play trombone [In reply to] Can't Post

back in the olden days (1964-70).

But I can't anymore.

I always thought it would be fun to play melodeon or concertina or perhaps the hurdy gurdy.

But given the time and choice, I'd love to learn the violin. (Wouldn't mind the cello, either.)

my instrument is my voice [In reply to] Can't Post

i sing. love to sing. have taken voice lessons with a +great+ teacher -- an opera singer who did his undergrad and masters at julliard. being a good singer doesn't make you a great teacher, but he's blessed with both skills. he has +really+ helped me, and taught me a lot about proper technique. having proper technique will carry you +far+ to sounding as good as you can.

cheers : )

I can play... [In reply to] Can't Post

guitar, bass, mandolin, lap-steel, and banjo competently. I can also play some ocarina, and a tiny bit of keyboards (badly). I am by far most competent on guitar, of which I own quite a few (two 6-string acoustics, three 6-string electrics, one nylon-string classical, one 12-string acoustic, one 12-string electric, one electric sitar, and one 7-string electric - and an electric lap-steel, but I wouldn't count that as a normal guitar due to the drastic differences in techniques needed to play).

Anyway, great topic!!!

Piano and guitar, but not that well, and [In reply to] Can't Post

dulcimer, mandolin and accordion quite a bit less well. I think I can play only one song on each of those three. On piano and guitar, I'm competent enough for most of my own purposes (I teach elementary general music and accompany cantors at church).

violin/fiddle [In reply to] Can't Post

have played for 17years Cool

I was third chair first violin by the time I was a senior in high school, and varsity lettered in orchestra Smile Also went to WA state competition as part of a large ensemble. Got our butts handed to us because we were up against Western WA rich kids, but had a good time Smile

a bit rusty, as it has been 8 years since I actively played, but I have been picking it up again.

We combined with band to play Hoedown, and it was by far the most difficult and most phenomenal sounding song we ever did! I miss it....

Got a Celtic Woman music book to practice Coast of Galicia- also hard, but I will keep pounding at it!

I own a violin [In reply to] Can't Post

but I haven't gotten as far as learning to play it, yet! I also own a dulcimer and a guitar and a lap harp and a tin whistle and a piano and several flute-like instruments from around the world. What can I play? Flute. That's all! I took one semester of piano, and really hope to learn to play my violin and piano and guitar someday.
