Thanks for that advice, but I really don't know what to practice. I mean, I check out books on learning guitar from the library, but I don't know where to start.
You probably know where to start, right?

I seem a little out of my league in this thread even if someone else plays the same thing I do.

Hint: I play the same thing as a certain squid who hates a certain sponge.


That's right:Bb Clarinet
I've been playing it for 4.5 years (5th grade was every other day)
Self taught bass clarinet... now marching with it O_O
And now to add to my endeavors, I'm apparently learning Tuba for just a year??
I want to learn Bass guitar and keyboards... probably not gonna happen...


I am in marching band
2009 show: 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago, 867-5309/Jenny by Tommy Tutone, Seasons of Love by Rent, and The Final Countdown by Europe. Theme of the show was Numb3rs. jk not the show

2010 Show: A friend of our director wrote all the music but songs that were written in include
Toccata - Carpimus Noctum (pain in the ass to spell)
Tales Of The Crypt by Danny Elfman (wrote The Simpsons theme song)
Thriller by Michael Jackson. The band does the dance and I'm a part of the group that does the side to side stuff and the shimmy part. Theme of this years show is Suspense, including a fake death (snare drummer kills a color guard member)

2011 Show: Band Director's friend wrote all arrangements again. I'm marching with a Bass clarinet and we have a girl marching with a bari sax, also adding keyboards... we've never had those instruments in marching band until this year.
Our show theme is "From Mercury to Mars". We're playing Queen music and integrating Robert Holst's "Planets" music with 2 songs.
Part 1 is We Will Rock You and the Mars portion of the "Planets" pieces.
Part 2: Somebody to Love
Part 3: Fat Bottomed Girls (the intro... yes I'm in a HS marching band lol) and 2 measures of Flash Gordon. The remainder is a Pit solo.
Part 4: The final piece is Strauss' tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra (later used as the theme for 2001: A Space Odyssey) and then transitions to Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and finishes with Holst's Jupiter.

yessir this is one hell of a show for a band of only 30 marchers, 7 Pit players, and 5 color guard members.

I play guitar, I've been playing a little over 2 months. Apparently I'm really good, I should have started playing earlier in my life though. Who knows, maybe by now I could have been a rockstar.

I love guitar.

Thanks and Cheers!

I play the guitar, but I'm sadly not in a band. I've been playing for like 3 years, but out of the three years, I've only been playing like 2 or something, because I stopped for awhile.

Yeah, & I was good at it too but I am a bad teacher so I clearly can't teach people anything pertaining to anything I am able to do, though I am now considering getting into learning how to play a keyboard so that I can make music for the games I plan to make in the future myself, yep...

I play the Cello and Flute
I started with flute but I was never very good, so I talked my mom into letting me try Cello.
It had always looked interesting to me, and one of my favorite artists (Natalie Merchant) uses it
a lot in her music and well I just like feeling it evokes so I decided to take it up just for fun.
And I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought I would.
