What instruments you guys play? And what would you prefer to be playing?

I never got too good at guitar, so I never invested in anything worth bragging about. My best guitar is an Ibanez AEF Acoustic/Electric. I've also got a Yamaha Bass.



The guitar I've always wanted is a Gibson Les Paul.

I've got an old Fender acoustic sitting in the closet. I'd like to dig it out and try to play it again, especially since you can essentially learn how on the Internet.

Exactly. Gone are the days when you sat through tons of lessons to learn campfire songs and Kumbaya. :icon_eek:
Within days of getting a guitar, I was working my way through the acoustic parts of Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven". Thanks to guitar tablature. :bigthumbup:

I play(ed) guitar, a very little bit of keyboard, and did some programming. I hardly ever get to play anymore though. Work and life keep getting in the way.

I'd love a big old Gibson ES335 and a PRS.

I've got a bunch of guitars - most of em are cheap, but I have a stratocaster and a Guild electric that I love, & a reasonable 12string acoustic. I used to play in a cover band in high school and college. We weren't great, but had boat load of fun.

I'm a master at air guitar:rock:

I don't play any instruments (never had the time), but I've written 100 crappy songs, so if Beyonce is reading this, and she's looking for new material, I got quite a lot. :D

I used to have a 1987 G&L Invader that I would love to get my hands on again. It was Leo Fender's company after Fender

I dabble in guitar....been playing for almost ten years now I guess. I have a Gibson electric and Fender acoustic...neither were very expensive.

I play a mean triangle as well.

My friend has a Jews Harp, I almost chipped my tooth the first time I played it, then got the hang of it.

I always wanted to get a guitar and learn, and Still want to, but have yet to do that. I have tons of friends who have local bands here and so I am in that atmopshere a lot, but never got into it myself.

Yeah, I could definitely see that happening. Once in a while I'll snap my lip and make it fat :hhh:

Fun little thing to dick around with though.
