Let's talk about which instruments we play or the ones we did play! After a long unfortunate break (new PC messed me up) I'm slowly getting back into my little MIDI keyboard. For anyone who likes to mess around I think this is the best option, you can do whatever you want and there's some powerful software out there. All free! Back in the day I used to play a lot more instruments. As a kid and teenager I never developed great pitch recognition but I was very adept at picking up new instruments. Alto saxophone: played this slightly before band started in school so I had a head start, went through HS with it. Never did marching band (gay) and jazz didn't make sense to me so I stuck with symphonic winds and usually just played parts for different instruments. I had a loaner Tenor and Baritone sax which gave me access to Eb in two octaves and Bb in one. Always wanted a soprano (funny how my favorite one eluded me) but it never happened. I stopped playing sax mostly because of my living situations, it's a super loud instrument to practice with no matter what. Bass guitar: by chance I acquired a left handed bass cheap. I didn't plan on playing the thing I just knew they were rare, and I'm left handed so why not? I was instantly in extreme demand because every high school kid is a guitar player but there's nobody playing bass. My style was a basement version of Geezer Butler from Black Sabbath except I liked to use a felt pick instead of fingers. I didn't want to just strum eighth notes (ONLY AC/DC is allowed to do that) but wasn't very skilled either so this was a nice middle ground of stealing the root notes of chords from the guitar player and running it through a handful of tricks for adequate parts from the many litle groups I played with. This got me into rowdy stuff too like being suckered into a few live shows, police reports from noise, etc. Piano: always loved it, never had access to one growing up. By the time I got my first proper keyboard it was post music death Winbot (more on that later) even now I know the reality of the situation. I still like to mess with it because it's so interesting.
