I'm just curious as to how many musicians we have here, after finding out who all is interested in Martial Arts.

Post both skills you have now and those that you used to have.

  • drums
  • (almost any kind of percussion)
  • piano
  • violin
  • voice
  • bass guitar

And I'm not that bad with glasses filled to different levels with water. :D

I'm a former member of the Halket Street Monotones, where I played the drum. (Note: not drums). Other featured instruments were the cowbell, the block, the cymbals, and the kazoo. The kazoo player was honor-bound to play just one note, though. The neighbor next door was in the band, too, but he didn't know it. His banging on the wall fit right in.

It was one of those things that happened one night after too many beers. The band was formed, we established our repertoire, we played our maiden concert (also our farewell concert), and disbanded. After 30 minutes of no groupies showing up we called it quits.

More seriously, I truly wish I had learned to play some instrument.

I've dabbled with many types of instruments, but I have played the violin for the longest of any of them. I also have quite a bit ofexperience on piano. And I played bass and sang in a punk band for a while. But then who didn't? :)

If you've got rhythm, you can kick ass at them.

If not, you can learn, but you won't ever be world class.

I've got friends of both calibers. I know a man who plays around the world. He's got a drum set that breaks down into three separate, complete sets, and is worth MORE THAN MY TRUCK.
On the other hand, I know a guy who has been playing as long as I have (and he's even taking lessons), but I still kick ass on him.

If you have a natural knack for rhythm, you can most likely teach yourself. But I wouldn't advise trying unless you've got a top notch drummer around in your life to help you out or point out what you can do to improve a skill. That's what I've done. I've taught myself.

As of now, I am familiar with every style, but cannot play hardcore punk or industrial music. That industrial stuff cramps my arms. But I have no problem playing anything else. Including African time signatures like 11/4, 15/6, or other absolutely crazy stuff.

The only draw back is buying the set. A decent starter-kit will cost you around $400. With the preset talent of rhythm, the urge to play drums along with songs, the habit of pounding on things every now and then without realizing it, a drum set, and a drummer friend to help, you'll be up there wailing away in NO time...

<EDIT>
oh yeah... another draw back would be the Neighbors getting freakin' pissed off from the noise... :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
