I used to play clarinet. I'm sorta out of practice now... I'm pretty decent at drums, too, despite the fact that I haven't had a single lesson

I really only play two ... harmonica and native flute.

I've been playing harmonica for over 40 years and own several in different keys. Most of my harmonicas are Hohner, though I have one Lee Oskar. My favorite is my 64 Chrominca which just has a fabulous sound I think.

I started playing native flute about 4 years ago now. I'd always loved the sound and finally picked one up down in Sedona, AZ. My first was a High Spirits "Redtail Hawk" in G made of walnut. I was also lucky enough to meet Aaron White a couple of years ago (of the native ensemble Burning Sky - absolutely beautiful music btw - he's on Facebook and Burning Sky is available on Rhapsody and iTunes). When I met him I was fortunate enough to be able to get a reed flute (key of C) which he had personally made (and I got him to sign it too :-) ).

Oooo. I love the clarinet. Always puts me in mind of the swing/big band era. Benny Goodman ROCKS! :-D

Flute all the way! I'm starting marching band this upcoming year, and it's going to be awesome. ^.^ I also play a little piccolo (sometimes), piano (sorta), and saxophone (kinda). I used to play harp, too.

Haha. Yes, they are little, but their sound isn't. Clarification: I play it a little bit. By the way... What's the Native Flute like? Like, do you blow over the hole, or through the instrument? What's it's range? I've never played it before, so I'm curious.

I am learning guitar. I don't know much as of now; I can finger E, A, C, and D2 and know at least nine strums. I was taking lessons but had to set it aside to pursue a job, a task in vein. I have been meaning to pick it up again as I do very much want to learn to play and write songs. The guitar is such a beautiful and common instrument.

I play the tenors. I think they're a pretty fun percussional instrument. I'm not sure how I'd feel about playing snare drum, but I probably won't anyway because my technique is meh and my left hand is mentally ridiculous. On a scale of 1/10 on the tenors, I'd say I'm about a 7.5. :) That's a C, folks!

I play Alto Sax, primarily, but I've been thinking of going back to Keyboard. I plan on starting a rock band, so I want to participate. We already have a singer/guitarist, drummer, and Bassist.

I play... the violin since fourth grade, the piano since I was five, and tried flute for half a year. I didn't like it...
Oh, and my dad's been teaching me guitar lately.

**** yeah Tuba!
...
*ahem*
I've been playing the tuba for 2.5 years, the piano for ~2 months, and the recorder for ~6 months (required for 4-6 grade). I love playing tuba, and although it's a pain to lug around sometimes, I love it just the same, and can't imagine changing right now.

How did I not notice this topic!? I'm so into music it's not even funny... One of my lifelong dreams is to learn how to play every instrument.

Let's see, there were the simple mallet (color-coded) percussion instruments and recorder in elementary school that I gave up on very quickly. There were early piano lessons that I didn't practice enough to justify continuing, but I've gotten back into it of late. I've played violin for several years, and actually played my own recital not too long ago! I have been singing since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, and my voice range is kind of all over the place.

Other than that, I have learned (very) basic flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, oboe, and bassoon. Always look forward to learning more too!

AEPMT ;) 8-) :mrgreen:

I play the Detragon. (not really)

Massive props if you got that reference.

But, yeah. I don't play an instrument anymore. I used to play the trumpet, but it got boring over time.

I play the electric guitar and the violin. I'm actually looking for some people to jam with. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone who listens to the same music as me and plays bass/drums. >__<

OH, before I forget! Have any of you heard of the "theremin"? I suggest you look it up, or watch a video of someone playing it here. I really want to build my own theremin (not just by buying a simple kit); I would if I had more time. :/
