Now I know a couple of you out there at least have musical inclinations, so figured I'd start this up, see if it goes anywhere. What instruments do you guys play? What's your gear, style, repertoire, band, anything goes. ;) Got any stuff online?

In my case, I mainly play guitar, and my weapon of choice is currently an Epiphone Les Paul Gothic, hooked in to a Pod XT Pro, and I'm part of a very unorganised band here at my company, doing vocals as well.

I've got a project on the go to build another guitar, but it is still early days.

I've been a musician for about...well, 14 years now. Classically trained "woodwind-ist." Unfortunately, my education is not complete...I wont be satisfied until I can play the oboe and bassoon, which I haven't had a chance to get my hands on yet. I currently play flute, piccolo, and a range of clarinets and saxophones.

Well, let's see... I have played saxophone for about 15 years, and I taught myself bassoon a few years later because I was bored with playing just one thing all the time:) Then I played in college wind ensembles (bassoon) and jazz ensembles (mostly on tenor and bari sax) for 5 years ( I wasn't even a music major, lol), and I made it into a community wind ensemble (first chair!) a couple years ago, so I've been able to keep up with my instruments after college which is great!

Someday I'd love to be in another jazz combo, but my day job keeps me pretty busy...

i play pretty much any instrument i get my hands on. i have 2 guitar an ovation for unplugged practicing or playing, and a Gibson epiphone with a crate gx-15 amp. i also played the clarinet for 4 years. i'm also a big fan of electro so i goof around with sequencers a bunch but i'm only good at the guitar. my family collects a lot of different instruments so i've played wit everything form a upright bass to a squeeze box (i don't remember the real name its what you see in old pirate movies.) i spend more time playing classic video game music for things like final fantasy or megaman, i spice it up with classical music like ride of the Valkyrie or sailors hornpipe. i also like playing old 80's music like duran duran, depeche mode or the cars. lastly i like to play some newer stuff like MSI, some KMFDM and rammstein. no band either just me and a drum track i build in frooty loops.

Hell yeah, I love FL Studio. I do VG remixes a lot...not so much as I used to, what with all the beading I do, but I still get around to it now and again.

I believe English Concertina is slightly easier than Irish, in that the reeds are the same for both in and out blows. On the Irish one the reeds are for different notes depending on the direction, which is highly confusing for me. I've tried playing it several times but no luck.

That is pretty damn confusing...that's like a piano that plays different notes depending on if you're playing with your right hand or your right hand...god, I'd just give up, haha.

Code:

pinky     ring     middle  -index------       ------index-    middle    ring     pinky

G#3/C#3   A5/E6    C6/F6  C#6/G#5  G4/D5 | E5/A4    Bb5/Eb6   B5/F#5   D6/G5   Eb3/Bb2
F3/C3    Bb4/Eb5   B4/F#4  D5/G4  G#4/C#5| Eb5/Bb4   A4/E5    C5/F5   C#5/G#4  F#3/B3
E3/A3     A3/E4    C4/F4  C#4/G#3  F5/C5 | F#4/B4   Bb3/Eb4   B3/F#3   D4/G3    G3/D3


The worse thing is there is no discernible patterns other than the central core buttons for a standard C scale. There is a logic behind the arrangement for a certain type of music though, but I haven't figured a way of getting my brain round it.

Didn't stop me playing Melissa by Porno Graffiti after only 5 minutes with the thing though. xD[/code]

I'm currently building a new guitar from pieces. I'll get some photos and such when I've made some progress. Early days yet.

I have an Ibanez GSR190 (the one from the jumpstart pack), Ashdown Electric Blue 180W, 15 inch speaker, and a Boss TU-2 chromatic tuner.

Pity i can only have my little practice amp at uni though, no way in hell the Ashdown would be aloud here.

I used to play in a band, but we never played with eachother after our last gig.

I've been playing tenor saxophone for about 4 1/2 years and i'm teaching my self guitar. My regular sax is just a yamaha. But i just got my grandfather's old sax (a balanced action) working and now i'm using that.
My electric guitar is a strat and my acoustic is an ibanez.
