    what instrument?

    Well, I put down other but there was nowhere to 'specify' other than this. Aside from self defense instructor and 3D CAD Modeler for a Physics Lab at Cornell University, I am none other than JOMO the King of Kazoo. I am first a singer, secondly a lifelong (age 60) player of the 12 string guitar. I primarily perform 1930 Jugband songs and Blues and use as my lead instrument a home made 4 tier kazoo - that's one stem with 4 kazooys on it. I played professionally for over 15 years but stopped when I had to get a REAL job so I could responsibly raise my 3 children (they are now grown). So now I'm also an avid motorcyclist. You just gotta have too much fun! Tom Kobela

    Tinwhistles.Well,plastic,wood,etc.Bought my first one yeeeears ago in a guitar shop when one of my best friends was buying his Strat.Used to play harmonica and thinking of revisiting that area.Had to make a choice when young as to whether to study Uilleann pipes or get hit in the head a lot.So I stuck a whistle in my back pocket and contented myself with that.Now I have metal low key whistles big enough to use for Kali sticks in a pinch.

    Learned to read music playing mellophone,French horn and trumpet in elementary school.Not a musician,just a whistle player."Course I hear that's what they say about the pros!

    Mr. K., a belated welcome to MAP.I live just outside of town,and in the past spent years training and teaching on campus.Nice to see you here.

    I play multiple woodwind instruments, clarinet being my first. My school orchestra dictates what I end up playing at any given time.

    There are a lot of guitar players. I'm attempting and failing miserably.

    I recently started the guitar but I'm not too bad at it. I can only read tablature for it though. I played the piano for about ten years. I can read the sheet music for that. I've done a bit of recorder and violin and while I can read the sheet music, I can't really play all that well. I like to sing and I attended choir first as a treble, then alto and now a tenor.

    Although I do play keys to some degree I'm more a composer/producer than anything else.

    So I mostly play the mouse I suppose.

    Well not exactly fiddle...finger style, slap, tap, pick... you get my drift!

    Yes I read music.. have done so since I was a child.

    cheers, powchoy

    tom pain I want Chewbacc for good

    Have taken up drums.

    Started on something fairly easy - Enter Sandman - and am going to combine that with tutorials so hopefully will go well!

    It's an electronic kit so I bought some wireless headphones to save the family some grief and ear-ache! :p

    Excellent, prog-metal rules!

    I play guitar, I've studied Classical Guitar (got a Diploma from the Conservatorium here) I like to shred, play jazz, fusion, prog-metal, anything which is fast and technical is the most fun. :happy:
