    So I'm curious Gurus, how many of you play an instrument as a hobby or even moreso than that, if so, what do you play, how long for, etc. Play in a band? Post a link, let us listen!

    Personally playing:
    Bass (9 years)
    Guitar (8 years)
    Drums (2 years on and off)
    Keyboards (2 years (very, very badly, still can't get the hang of it).
    Vocals (if that counts, and I really can't sing well).

    Musical projects/bands:
    Got a number of these on the go...
    Tower of Waves (ambient/jam black/post/doom/prog/post-rock/metal mix): www.bandcamp.com/towerofwaves.
    Bataan (black metal, still writing atm, hence no site yet).
    As-of-yet-unnamed prog-metal project.
    As-of-yet-unnamed-blues-band (when our bassist returns from his round the world escapade).
    And numerous other older projects which have died/I've moved on from including power metal bands, thrash bands, etc.

    So go on, post yours! :D

    I did the whole instrument thing through the public schools system. I started with Piano (outside of school) when I was 6, I think. Later I moved to clarinet, to alto tenor and then baritone sax. I then got sick of playing one note at a time and breathing so I moved to guitar. I still play guitar. Played in a few "bands", some organized, some not. I prefer to stay out of bands now because of egos. Damn drummers always try to kick me out :)

    I do play a bit of occasional piano. Love the sound of it. Nice to hear we have other people (also) playing instruments though. :)

    Bass (2013 - 1976 = 37 years, OMG)! Started on a Montgomery Wards cheapie in '76, I still have my Gibson Grabber (sliding pickup version) I bought in '78, pull it out of the closet and play it occasionally.

    I did 8 years of vocal lesson (classical) from 1999 to 2007. I'm a high baritone. Can't reach the high notes properly to make me a tenor.

    I've been singing and conducting in several choirs since 1998 till 2012, when the baby came and took all my spare time.

    I play the piano/keyboard, guitar (not too good), and recorder. I really want to play clarinet, oboe and other wind instruments, but they are so very expensive here. I rather spend my money on computer ahaha.

    Piano lessons for 4 years,

    Played trumpet for about 5 years

    Currently I only play guitar (since about 2006), and I have a MIDI keyboard that I use to control some VST synthesizer stuff. That is quite fun.

    my main thing is the electric Guitar, been playing for many years (at least 15).

    i own 5 guitars, a Peavey Predator, Fender Strat, Jackson Performer, JS100 and a Jackson Soloist, with the exception of the Peavey and Fender, i installed Fernandes Sustainers in the latter guitars. :D

    i also play Keyboards (since i was 6 years old) and own 2, one is a casio the other is a big roland keyboard.

    i wrote countless instrumentals at home, just a hobby, i shared one last month on Guru3D, it's called My Girl.

    my favorite guitarist was, is and will always be Neal Schon.

    here's a Videoclip of me playing a cover of "Mariah Carey - Hero" (with distortion) and wearing Michael Myers mask :devil: for fun.
