I took my first bass guitar lesson 2 days ago. I suck, but it's still fun.
I play the baritone (or euphonium as you may know it). I've been playing since 4th grade... so like 8 years.
I can play the drums...but not a drumset . I've been in the school band playing drums since 4th grade which means this is my 8th year drumming. My favorite drums are the quads. We play them for pep band and marching. And just in case no one knows what they are, quads are a set of four bongo-like drums that are connected. Here's a link to some that look like mine:
They're really fun to play once you get the hang of them...which took me about half a year or so.
The oboe. *glares at Mar17swgirl*
Also, the clarinet.
I play Guitar.
My mom was a music fanatic, quite gifted at it herself. She made sure that her kids got proper music education.
-Piano (awful instrument, I hate it with a passion)
-Saxophone (alto, tenor, bari ... learn one, learn them all)
-Percussion (awesome stuff!)
Good old mom panicked a number of times because she thought I would ruin my fingers with all the sports I played.
Piano - 15 years
Percussion - 9 years
Flute - 8 years
Ukulele - 1 year.
Whoops, sorry. English is not my first language...
Blues Brother to Sidious1
I can play flute and the piano, but I must confess I'm not that brilliant on either of them.
Well, I can make both a piano and a clarinet produce music, but anything above fairly easy stuff is beyond my skills.
I can play the SW Main Theme though
Oh, I unglare then. I thought you were making fun! But if you weren't being mean, I don't mind. I think the equivalent word in some languages does start with an h, so pretty excusable.
Dose tambourine count? I did try the drums for a while.
To my mums disgust.

I used to play the xylaphone (sp?) in elementary school... but I voted for the last option.
Taking viola lessons, truly a beautiful instrument, with a richer sound than a violin, but not too deep.
