I wouldn't refer to myself as a "musician", exactly, as I don't think I'm at a high enough skill level.
I can play/am learning: Guitar, Piano, Harmonica
I own a few guitars, one being a 12-String, and another being a Goya classical guitar from the 1940's (I believe).
"Musician" is relative, I guess.
I sing. I was accepted into college for vocal performance (long story as to why I didn't follow that road). I've played classical guitar since I was 8, though I don't play often anymore.
My guitar is one of my favorite possessions, even if I don't pick it up much right now. Collectively, my dad and I own five or six guitars.
Next up? BANJO!
I sing, and I own a couple of guitars. Daughter and I started taking lessons a few years back and go to busy with life to keep going. With her going off to college this fall, I may get back into it. One is a stratocaster knock-off electric, and the other is an electric acoustic. Back in my younger years I was known to (try to) write a song or two.
I sing choral music at church, my range is technically baritone, but I can hit most of the bass thru tenor range. Most of the singing I do is in the car on the way home from work, where I can belt out rock and roll with no one telling me to shut up! On a good day I can sing along passingly well with Brad Delp of Boston. Always been tempted to try out for America's Got Talent... not sure I have to guts for it though.
Rockin the Electric Guitar, some acoustic. AC/DC, mostly. Some blues riffs & lead. I play too hard, have to re-tune every other song. The Electric guitar is the HOT ROD of music instruments. I made my own guitar with a 1x3 pine, shish-kabob skewers and some cheap tuners. I take it camping so it doesn't use much room.
If i didn't play guitar, i'd play piano.
I am personally not a musician, but my wife is. In fact she runs a personal bussiness as an "entertainer" She does sing-a-longs at different nursing homes in the area. She usually take a piano/keyboard but sometimes she will take a guitar, a ukelele, a mandolin, and a harp. She ends up with about 10-15 "shows" a month.
Just a wanna-be here.
I used to sing with a church group when I was a teenager. Did you know there was Christian Rap and Hip-Hop? Well, now you know. Hehehe... we did some of the Sister Act stuff, too, that was pretty popular when I was a kid.
Always backup, though, no solos. My husband isn't a fan of my vocal displays, though, so now I just usually keep it to the car and shower. I think I've got a pretty narrow range... those of you who have met me can tell I'm not a soprano, lol.
I do own a guitar (which I've always played right-handed ), but, I didn't have very many lessons when I got it (back in college... the first time around).
Since I've finally finished my degree and the kids are old enough to not need me constantly, I told my husband I'd like to pick back up on it, and, he's all for getting me out of the house more , he's even found me an instructor. I'm looking forward to getting back into it.
Didn't Robert Green do a poll a couple years ago about how many CAD Mangler types are musicians? Seems like there's a lot out there.
So far, it appears that I'm the first drummer! Only 27 years only and been playing drums since I was 10. It's more of a hobby than anything. I never played in a band with friends, but always enjoy rocking out to some of my favorite bands.
