I've played clarinet since 1996. Took a break from studying after last christmas, but I'm still playing with bands and such.
Learnt piano for couple of years.
Self taught on flute (my sister is studying).
I also play guitar a bit, but never learnt it. I have one Peavey (elec), one Simon and Parick, and one old weary Bjarton.

Oh, and tin-whistle :bleh:

I've been playing the flute since I was 10 (1992), the recorder since I was 5, the clarinet for about 4 years and the saxophone for about 3 years. My job is actually teaching those four instruments.

I started piano lessons when I was 5 and continued till the end of my first year at university when I gave up to concentrate on the flute more. I play piano and keyboards in a few bands, one of which is looking pretty serious so I'm hoping I might be able to go full-time soon....

My mum taught me to play guitar when I was 4 but that's really a hobby and I learnt to play the double bass a few years ago because I felt like it. I also learnt the oboe for a while but I was awful!

Opera Singer, Bassoon, Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Trumpet (so Baritone and Tuba can fall into that as well) Piano, Bass, Guitar, played a bit of Oboe, play a bit of Clarinet, because of Saxophone I can play Flute pretty well, Mallet percussionist (so Vibes, Marimba, Xylophone) I wonder if I've left anything out...probably...I can pretty much play anything I can get my hands on because I'm just awesome like that I also love composing music...but I would say my primary instrument (s) is Voice, Percussion, Piano, Bassoon, and Saxophone

Separating the saxes out to boost your instrument count is cheating! LOL

Not sure that makes sense. :blink: They're very different instruments. I suppose the fingerings are similar (just about) and they're both woodwind but otherwise I fail to see the connection! :crazy:

Nice list otherwise! k: k: k:

The fingerings between Saxophone and flute are almost the exact same...I had to learn a hadnful of different ones (I think I could count them on one hand), and I had to learn how to blow across the hole, bot otherwise they are almost the exact same.

Seperating the saxes makes perfect sense, because anyone who has played saxophone before can tell you how different they are. When I first tried to play tenor from Alto, it took me a bit...but I guess you are right. Thanks for the compliment though...music is what I do...'tis my life.

Ocarina (the Hot Potato one, not the smartie with holes), but am lacking songs for it, and far from all songs're fit for it (especially those with high notes. Too easy to drop the thing then)

mine too!

I've never had any problem switching saxes. I can pick up any sax and play, it's never bothered me. Oh well, suppose we're all different. You can clearly play brass instruments where I'm lucky to make a sound!

Oops, sorry, got a bit protective about the flute there! LOL I tend to do that!
Yeah, suppose fingerings are pretty similar but you can apply that to any woodwind instrument except the bassoon (I never worked out what to do with all those keys round the thumb! LOL) Clarinet, Oboe and Recorder fingerings are pretty much the same as flute and saxophone.

Fingers off almost means ocarina to the floor :bleh: I feel it's easier than the recorder, but just need some songs I can practice with, and I've never found any songs for that type of ocarina. 's Always for the smartie one.

Clarinet, saxophone, and guitar when I was a teenager.

Now, guitar, bass, and some piano/keyboard.

If you consider the voice an instrument, I've been singing since I was born.

Remember, you just asked if we played anything, you never asked if we played it well :angel:
