    Hey! I play the trumpet! It's not 'uncool.' Anyway, I also play piano (grade 5 in the RCM), guitar, trombone, glockenspiel, organ, keyboard, baritone (and thus euphonium) and I play the computer. Check out imperialshadows.tripod.com/party.mid- Star Wars dance tune!

    Guitar, and since I know the mechanics of an instrument I can play the piano, one handed. I play it with my right hand since I'm so used to going to the opposite direction with my left for bass and treble :p

    I mostly play anything that has a good melody and I use the alternate picking technique ;)

    Very recently I've got done learning the E Blues scale so I could play my favorite film pieces. I've been trying to sway away from regular rock songs on the guitar recently for the sake of developing my own technique and style.
    Cuz if I could play a film piece with my selection of notes and to play them with my developed skill so far I'm not forcing anybody elses skill on me(Like Slash's or anybody) and I slowly progress :D

    Very recently I've been doing Spaghetti Westerny stuff from my The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly soundtrack along with the Outlaws(LucasArts game) soundtrack.

    Mainly tuba/sousaphone, but also baritone/euphonium, trumpet/coronet, sax, piano, and one time I played bass drum at a community band concert. 1, 2; 1, 2; 1, 2... even more boring than tuba parts, 'cause I couldn't change pitch.

    I play tuba, my girlfriend plays piccolo, and both our names are Ashley! :D

    I played the clarinet in middle school. Made the tryouts for the high school marching band, but I quit before the first practice. (Still have the clarinet, though.) I took one piano course in college. Sang for two years in a choir during that time (soprano, though I can sing alto and tenor, too).

    I have played violin for 9 years.

    Hopefully I'll be able to learn how to play guitar (once I get enough money for a Stratocaster, that is :) ).

    I play violin, viola, piano, and handbells. I played flute very badly once upon a lifetime and am passable on drums, but not to speak of.

    Im trying to learn the guitar, i can play two songs `a bit` so far. I am helped by the fact that my brother is brilliant on the guitar and plays in a band. It gets embarrasing sometimes when im trying to knock out a simple tune and he`s doing complicated solos and stuff.

    I can play some electric and acoustic guitar (mostly Beatles and Dylan), but I prefer acoustic. Basically, I just strum chords-it's a wonderful release.
