    I dont know if this thread exists , but if it does I havent seen it and it probably died way back and since there are a plethora of new users I thought I would start a fresh one .

    So really all I wanna know is do you play any instruments and if so , what ?

    Myself , I play guitar , mainly a fingerstylist .
    Influenced hugely by Nick Drake , Paul Simon , Led Zep , Pink floyd among many others .
    Also very much into spanish and classical
    just getting into teaching myself some jose gonzales at the mo .

    So are there any other twangers here?

    Shame you quit .
    Sometimes I wish id started to play piano instead of guitar , seems easier so Id probably be a better pianist than a guitarist by now.

    I've been playing the drums for 3 years. I can pretty much play any rock song invented, so I'm moving on to Jazz Rock. Tis' going to be tough. ^.~

    yeah my nephew is a mean drummer

    I think you have to push yourself with an instrument if you're serious about it or you just kinda stagnate

    I play guitar, but i haven't had much time to practice that much. I'm only interested in electric guitars, instead of acoustics (I like their sound, but i'm not really a fan of the way they look and feel).

    I certainly can, that was one of the 1st Bob Marley track I practised on and played , also redemption song . Another great guitar track was " dust in the wind" by kansas.

    So far, i can play "Iron Man" by Black Sabbath. I want to learn more songs from guys like Megadeth, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Loudness and such.. but i need to make more room for practice time.

    As you can tell ^^... I'm not currently in a band. But who knows, when i get better, maybe I'll start looking around for someone to jam with.

    waiting in vain is heavy ! that ranks up with the best simple to play and easy on the ears , as it with great songs the simplest are the best ; they stand the test of time . re: dust in wind type in either the track title " dust in the wind or kansas it should bring it up . Aslo there is tutorial in you tube if you want to learn how to play it .
