Your appreciation for music is well documented.

I was just thinking, I have never heard, or asked; do you play?

Want to? Plan to?  (not like you don't have enough irons in the fire, and need to get caught up after I dunno, finishing a doctorate  LOL Grin)

You know so much about music, esp. [shudder] yours[/sudder]  I figure, you must have been on the "backside" of a guitar sometime. Wink


Also, anybody else?

spacemeister?  Someone as classicaly educated, and well rounded as yourself must have some do re mi in him.


I have a drum set, and can keep time.  I can play a few songs, and fake a lot more.  I wouldn't call my self a "drummer" yet, but I plan to get into it pretty seriously this winter.  What else you gonna do with snow on the ground? chiffonade?

Karen bought me a guitar last Christmas.  I have always wanted to play, but alas, I think I will always be a better golfer than guitarist. Sad  I just can't do it.

I played alto saxophone from 4th grade through my 2nd year of college. I spent about 4 years of that time playing both alto and tenor sax in a jazz improv quintet with a stand-up bass, piano, trumpet, and a five piece drum kit. It was very cool and we played a lot of live gigs at a bar in SLC called DB Coopers (and later the Bull and Bear). I think I mentioned in a recent thread on FGI the severe depression I went through entering my senior year. I lost my passion and haven't played since. I keep wanting to pick it up again, but the thought of rebuilding my embouchure brings tears to my eyes.

I messed around with the electric bass and played with a hardcore group for a couple of years in the early nineties. My skill and technique were sub par, but our guitarist and drummer were brilliant, so all I had to do was keep a beat and be able to play in D. When our singer got married, the group stopped playing and I never continued with the bass.

I've also tried on several occasions to play guitar but every time I try it seems I'd prefer to play guitar than learn guitar.

And that is the extent of my illustrious musical history.

i've been playing the piano since 1979 (earned my diploma in 2000). Also play recorders, guitar, a tiny bit of lute and hand drums and dumbeks, and I sing in an a capella choir. My biggest desire is to purchase a cornamuse (medieval bagpipes) and a hurdy gurdy (lute shaped instrument, played with keys and a crank).

Oh, I almost forgot, that I was involved with rock and metal bands from basically 1990 till 2004 when I left Greece. I loved (and still love) being on stage! Smiley

Nice.  I ask, 'cause I'm always envious.  I have zero music.(in me, history, family etc.) I enjoy music, and to see someone make the sounds I hear on the radio(or whatever), infront of me, is really cool.

The rig.

Sold my bass rig years ago (Ernie Ball StingRay, Mesa Boogie amp, Marshal Cabinet, Rat Pedal), the tenor sax is also gone. The alto is in the basement in its case which hasn't been opened in the better part of a decade. I'm almost afraid to open it, but I'm guessing it's about $600 worth of restoration before it's ready to play again.

Hey, Cap'n.  I can host them on golfhos, but I can't think of an easy way for you to put them on this site.

Maybe you can upload them at the site below, and I can then copy them to golfhos.com?
