    I'm a full-time musician. Thats why I play some many damn video games.

    Drums and Singing are my main things.

    I also play guitar, piano, banjo, and a couple wood and brass instruments.

    I was an ALL-State singer in High School.

    I currently play in a band called BLOOSTOO.

    Our website is here---> www.bloostoo.com

    My tip would be to find time to practice everyday. Even if its for 5 mins. Thats when I learn the most. I stumble across things I didn't know I could do.

    I play guitar! I own an Ovation Celebrity and an Ibanez AXS-32. Very nice indeed! I also play on a Crate 120 watt XTR120R. I want to learn the piano and take up bass and banjo as well.
    I was in a band called Du Lait, but that was a summer thing and its done now.

    A good tip is to play while watching TV. It helps to subconciously memorize the song and play it without thinking

    Ive played the piano since I was 6. Ive got a yamaha AN1X synth, yamaha PSR 500, that I use as a midi control keyboard, and of course a piano (although thats not mine, its my mums!). Im after an electric piano for when I move out ATM, but they cost £££££
    I actually got into PCs through music, rather bizarrely as I wanted a decent system to run music apps (VST etc), and i didnt have much cash so i thought I would build one myself! Then I got hooked... and that is almost as much of a hobby as the music now. Ideally, I would like to build a seperate system now for music and one for gaming/internet and other stuff, but money wont allow.
    Oh, and also I forgot to mention that I mix here in london, so I have decks etc!

    Since I don't have money to buy equipment, I use Reason 2.5, Fruity Loops and others to make various genres of electronic music.

    I'll post one when I feel it's good enough.

    ...and if anyone at Guru is a good singer and has some original lyrics, please, sing them and send it to me.

    I wouldn't call myself a musician but I produce beatz on Fruityloops and other software with a keyboard, one of mates who is a MC then comes and raps over them.

    I've played drums for 6 years now, mainly metal but I have been thought to play a lot of different styles of music...

    My set is a 6 piece John Grey Autocrat from the 70's, it's still in good shape...I just might need to change some head and pedals soon..

    I've played the trumpet for about 6 or 7 years, I also play a little acoustic guitar and keyboard (or piano) as well as a harmonica. Then there's making music on the computer, if that counts.

    I'm more of a listener than anything, but I'm really working at getting better with a guitar.

    why dont you get a few of you together and record something with each of your instruments send them all to one person , who could then try and piece them together and make a guru 3d anthem

    just a thought
