Guitar Hero... I'm not musically talented at all...

Correct. Guitar Hero most definitely isn't an instrument...

The game may not be, but the controller definitely is. Check out Guitar Zeros, who perform on hacked Guitar Hero controllers....

"The limitations are limit-less."

How does a guy this smart with computers make a statement like that :lol: .


Check out Frets on Fire - it's a free PC version of Guitar Hero - you can play with your keyboard or get an adapter for the guitar controller from GH.

I play drums, I took lessons for about 3 yrs. I'd like to learn to play the piano or the guitar, whichever comes more naturally.

I play the alto sax but I could play any other sax since the fingerings are the same.

The chances of one person taking a bomb on a plane are one in a million. The chances of two people taking a bomb on a plane are one in a trillion. So if you're scared of a terrorist attack, bring a bomb on a plane.

Hand me a sax and I have either gotten the chance to play it, own it and play it, or borrowed/used one and played it. I have played all but the sopillo sax.

I play bass. Don't own one yet, just go over to a friends and play it. I think it's a washburn or something.

I play harmonica for the jazz band at our school as well as sax.

(In order of skill: greatest to least)

I use to play the French Horn, but I had to stop that last year when I couldn't keep taking band. (Not enough credits for my other courses if I did)

I recently bought a guitar and a friend is teaching me that, which is pretty awesome.

I can make some pretty funky little segments using Garageband on my computer.

I picked up a little bit of the piano, using an old Casio keyboard:

The real question is, what don't I play. Here's the list:
Orchestral Percussion
Orchestral Mallets
Jazz Vibraphone
Drum Set
Soprano Saxophone
Alto Saxophone
Tenor Saxophone
Baritone Saxophone
Cornet
Trumpet
Trombone
Baritone Horn
Flugelhorn
Electric Guitar
Electric Bass Guitar
Keyboards
EDIT: The list is what I DO play. That wasn't realy clear.
EDIT #2: Liam, you realize your mouth is a lot looser for the lower saxophones and a lot tighter for the higher saxophones? If you don't have experience with them, you can't just pick them up and play...

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But I’m just not the angel you knew.

Two comments:
1) I like your taste in what you want to learn to play, and
2) You really know how to pick fussy, difficult and expensive instruments.

I know. D= I'll probably never get to learn any of them just because they're really expensive, and also, who the hell teaches the theremin and the lute?
