Just curious if there are any musicans on the boards? I play guitar here, mostly the progressive rock area. I have two beautiful Ernie Ball Petruccis (one 6 string one 7 in Dargie finish).

I was with a pop band during high school, playing bass guitar/guitar and lead singer...we play for lots of wedding dinners during that time (early 90's). It was a fun time, all the equipment carrying, transportation and some sexy female singers who join us on part time basis, and I do save up quite a bit as a student playing with the band :p

Erik, I played clarinet in school bands and orchestras, but haven't played recently. At present my active musicianship involves our church choir(4 women, 2 men).

I think there are quite a few here who play some sort of instrument. I play guitar.

In the previous century, I played (keyboards) in bands in HS, music college, and after. Larger club circiut (800-1,200 cap.)
around NE and NY. 250 lb. Hammond, Fender Rhodes, Arp Synhesizer.
And one van full of "sound reinforcement" just for me! "What? Did you say something? Try my other ear, please."

In elem. school I played Saxophone. From age 10 to 20 I played elec. guitar. From 25 to 26 I played piano. Then my life changed with military and 3 wives and I just took up acoustic guitar a few months ago.

Violin in school and for a while afterwards; still have an electric violin sitting around somewhere.

Mostly used it for playing the organ parts on Deep Purple songs when we didn't have a keyboard player ;\)
