I was close to learning guitar, but eventually left it due to some of the emotional problems getting in the way. :(
I also gave the thought of buying a synth a couple of times, but... The upper above. : /
Rather than that, all sort of music is welcome in my book. From epic metal to crazy techno stuff. :)

that's neat, I remember trying to learn acoustic guitar at frist but because I thought i was shit at it I never practiced, which mad me more frustrated to begin with XD. Wanted to give up after 2/3 yrs but my mother forced me to continue cuz I'd then at least get out of the house, which made it even worse XD.

Anyway long story short: I now play drums :D.
Btw, not trying to push it but maybe go to a music store and try out what u want/like?
Ik classical guitar can sound pretty :D
And I love all sorts of music too, maybe we should share it sometime :p
A bit of piano.. and I used to play guitar and violin.
Oh that's sick! Violin& piano sound so cool, you cna play all kinds of music with those! For how long did you play?
i can play some piano, but i'm not very good at all. taught myself though. :heh:
That's neat! I tried some keyboard myself tho XD. Yo still play it? How did it turn out?

Love music to death.. literally. I learnt the violin when I was five. But then someone told my dad its the devils instruments, so thats that. Then I learnt the piano for around 8 years. I didnt actually like it then. Now I am learning acoustiic guitar and its quite fun to noodle around the guitar

Electric guitar, and old traditional flute. Tried many things, moved on to sports afterwards
That's neat an electric guitar can sound so badass! For how long did you play both instruments?
There are many creative people here, myself included. I've played multiple instruments for over half of my life. The problem with depression though is that many of us lose our drive to continue pursuing creativity or hobbies.
Yeah depression can be a real bitch, tell me bout that one. Once lost my drive to it as well, feeling energized by the things you love is hard at those moments. What instruments did you play before u lost ur drive?

Self taught, but I learnt the piano and viollin from teachers, so it just helps to know a bit of music theory I guess. Wbu? What got you interested enough in music to ask this question on SS?

Hmmm, it's nothing new rlly I've just always liked music from a young age and played some myself. I decided to ask this question to distract myself a lil from what goes trough my head at times.
Once i play "Home" from three days grace, was great, cant do it again
TDG has some good songs!!

I am up for the share thing! :hug: Perhaps everyone should too, haha! Though, there already seems to be a Thread for that. :)
Oh well!
Once again, the drums thing sounds epic, I hope you manage to learn more and share with us about it! X3
We actually both own an electric guitar as well as acoustic one here at home. :)
They are my dad's, even though her barely has time to play himself or try to.

I play guitar every now and then. I will tune each string to a random note, until each string has an interesting sound to each other, and then write something. When I do standard tuning I have zero creativity. One forces you to break out of any molds you may have been trapped in.

Yeah having parents that play instrument seems like the coolest thing as a child! Sadly I don't have anyone that rlly plays an instrument in my family, so guess I'm out here with no one but random strangers to teach me XD.
Upping skills is the hardest part tho, damn haha but I'll try to learn some new stuff :p

I believe you will manage! :) It's hard at first, but once you get down to knowing the basics and all of that, I am sure it gets even more interesting from there. The teacher thing you mentioned where they were impatient sucks though. :(

Yes I play guitar and bass quite well. I also tried out paino for a year and did a grade 4 exam and passed but I had to stop playing when I fell ill as I couldn't sit in a chair to play. I can play my bass and guitar but it kind of hurts to do so I can only do it for a little bit maybe every other day.

I love rock, punk rock, heavy metal and MPB ( Brazillian popular music ).
My dream is to have all kinds of pedals to use every kind of effect.
