Re: Musical instruments

I play jazz piano, and other styles too, like soundtrack music (I can read music but I suck at it :crazy: . I learn much better by ear). A little bit of bass guitar. My other main instrument would be percussion, both keyboard instruments (marimba, vibes, etc. I can do four mallet stuff with these), and drums (I play drums for my schoo's varsity jazz band). I appreciate all types of music, but my favorite styles to play and listen to would be jazz, funk/fusion, and movie soundtrack type stuff.

I also like to mess around with synthesizers. While I can't afford a hardware synth, I like to mess around with soft synths like Zebra 2 and ZETA+ (on my iPad). I have a friend who does this too. He's got a bandcamp at and a soundcloud (for his more experimental stuff) at (EDIT: Fixed link)

Likewise. :)

Never did learn to sight-read (other than voice, which barely counts), possibly because I can usually hear something and play it back, if not well, at least recognizably.

Re: Musical instruments


That's cool you DJ. I originally was trying to do some DJ'ing, but discovered I liked creating the music far more than mixing it. Awesome though!

I imagine you going something like this.
If only I could play the theramin!
I Play the Theremin!!! ...well.. I own a theremin.. I cannot play it thaaat well :shh:

I also play Piano, Guitar (I guess that includes Bass Guitar) and Saxophone. I've dabbled with the Flute and Clarinet but didnt really pursue it (I'll get 'round to it). oh and I'm getting a 5 stringed electric violin for christmas so i'll be starting on that soon (I guess a 5 string violin is technically also a 5 string viola.. eh..)

Happy to see so many Musical people in the LT Community!

:clap: :clap: :clap:

Very nicely done! That was some generally excellent technical work, with moments (like around 5:08) of feeling that really came through. Good luck!

I also put the cello up at the top of the "wish I could play it" instruments.

(Maybe we need a "what's the one instrument you most wish you could play" poll. :))

Also: look at all these musical people. We need to form a virtual band.
