We've probably had one of these topics before.

Anyway, I just bought a new recorder, and it got me wondering what sort of instruments the folks on TEB play or own. In addition to the recorder, I also play the saxophone and the piano; I like to think I'm pretty good at the former, but the best I can say about the latter is that I'm...making progress. http://i.imgur.com/aJs9cWS.png

I also own a beat-up old violin and clarinet, but I don't think they're in any shape to be played. I should have known a $40 violin was too good to be true.

So, what types of instruments do you guys have? http://i.imgur.com/aJs9cWS.png

Eh, I used to be afraid of not finding love. Then I just resigned myself to loneliness and started lusting after much older men.

I own a few bass guitars but haven't played in a while. My musical interest peaked in high school and has been declining since :/

My dad has several guitars. He wanted to teach me when I was in elementary school, but I wanted to play in the school band and was determined to have that saxophone! http://i.imgur.com/aJs9cWS.png

A lot of the people I used to play with lost their interest in music after high school. I was almost one of them. I come from a very musical family, though, so the idea of losing interest entirely is a little strange to me.

I want them please

I sort of play my bass, but it gets so boring by myself with only my bass. What I really want to do is get a drum set and get some playing experience. Then I could at least start churning some sort of cool lofi project using my phone's recorder and my shitty $100 laptop that has to survive the entirety of my college life (if I even decide to stay in). I really just want to amass instruments and experiment.

seriously I will figure out how to get them here i dont even care please

Good luck getting a drum set. My crappy "starter" set cost a couple hundred iirc. You might be able to get a used one cheaper but then I would reccomend buying new heads. How much do you already know? If not much you will need to learn how to tune them(easy) and please just dont hold your sticks wrong, it bothers me more than it should.

I play the drums, and I like to think I'm good at death metal/speed metal drumming. I also play a bit of guitar but I'm bad. <:

"I don't know. The laguz tribes cannot interbreed, I know that much. However, it seems possible, though rare, for a child to be born to beorc and laguz parents. But once the bloodlines have mingled, the trace of it can remain hidden for countless generations. Have I violated the goddess's laws? Have my parents? No. Whatever happened was done by some forgotten ancestor. My parents are beorc, as were their parents before them. I do not know who is responsible for what I am. But now, after many generations, their sin has appeared in me. I bear no guilt, but the badge of impurity is mine to wear." -Stefan

Determination.
The act of never giving up, regardless of the situation. It's a trait many people lack but I have the most determination of all. I am the one to change things, I am the determined soul, the one with enough burning passion to be able to change my fate and choose my friends.
Nothing is ever worth giving up for, let it be enemies or friends. I will not give up regardless of the cost.
Unlike you, I care about my friends.

I play the clarinet (any type you want to give me; B-flat, E-flat, Bass, I can play them), and I play the piano.

I also have a very small amount of experience with the guitar and the harmonica, but I wouldn't so much say I play them as I know the theory behind them and have put it into practice a bit.


Regardless, I'm much better at musical theory than I am at musical performance, although with the clarinet I come close to closing that gap and before I stopped practicing piano and subsequently lost my ability to sightread I was pretty damn good at that, too.
