So, people of Symthic, Who plays a musical instrument?

If you play an instrument what do you play?
Have you played an instrument in the past but since given up?
Did you enjoy playing, were you forced to play by your parents or by school?
If you do/did play are/were you any good at the instrument?
If you don't play an instrument do you want to learn to play one?


I used to play brass instruments, back when I lived in England, but I always wanted to play guitar. When I moved to Canada I told my music teacher I could play trumpet and french horn but I hated playing them, I asked her if I could play guitar instead. My teacher's counter offer was "How about electric bass?". Since 2009 I've been playing bass and a little bit of guitar (based from what I know about playing bass).

For you guitar/bass nerds:
I have a Fender Deluxe Active Precision Bass Special (MiM)
Fender Rumble 30 (I really need a better amp)
BOSS ME-20B Bass Effects Pedal

My guitar is a B.C. Rich Eagle One Archtop (I want a Fender Strat though)

I'd like to think i'm quite proficient at bass, I can play Iron Maiden, Muse, Queen, Bon Jovi and lots of Red Hot Chili Peppers (C'mon Girl is the hardest song I've learnt so far).


So, what do you play, are you any good?

Drums. I haven't played in awhile, due to my dumbass friend breaking my bass drum skin, so I'm waiting for him to replace it.

I'm not too shabby, but not noticeably impressive either. I don't really have any fancy equipment worth mentioning. I play mainly anything under the Metal genre (mixed with a little bit of Indie and Alt), and of course I use a double bass pedal to pull it off.

I'm a fan of the show, but not a "Brony". I don't obsess over it, but I do watch it and enjoy it.

That's like saying "I suck dick, but I'm not gay."

I play trombone. I have an F-Trigger Stradivarius.

I used to be decent, but I haven't practiced too much over the past two months, so I'm rather rusty. I think my proudest accomplishment was playing the guitar part from Sweet Child O' Mine on trombone from memory (I rewrote it from sound and played it off the top of my head). I definitely can't do that any more. I still play, I'm just nowhere near as good as I was when I practiced regularly.

Used to play piano, but it kind of bored me. Additionally, I'm the only one in my family who isn't ambidextrous. It kind of sucks seeing people be so coordinated with both hands at once, especially since I really wanted to be ambidextrous (at least, back when I played piano, now I'm quite happy being right-handed), so piano kind of annoyed me to some extent.

No way....someone else who plays trombone
I also play although I'm not very good. I'm at the typical high school level. Probably should practice more than once a week.

I took piano lessons when I was in Elementary/Middle School. Haven't played since... so I'm a bid rusty, but I can still play well.

Also, sad day when your phone corrects FAMAS to be in caps. Damn it.

That's not bad. My phone corrected "lets deforest Caspian Boarder" into "Lets de-foreskin Asians".... I think my phone is a racist pervert....

I would start singing Disney, but then I would be led on a path of destruction, eventually ending up with a boyfriend who is actually a skull with Macaroni and cheese.

Used to play the piano

Was forced to play the horn in the school band (randomly picked one whole class to be the band), then when I got too bored of that (couldn't stand the horrible horrible sounds coming from the rest, plus we never got any chances to actually practice on our own) I was forced to play the triangle.. lol... And after I refused that because it was utterly stupid I got a tambourine... Right...
