Mine is of course, Drums. I love the feeling I get when I am drumming, like nothing else in the world! (well, maybe tickling is an exception!) :D

KAZOO!!!...the only instrument I can really play! LOL
Actually, I like the sax...love Boots Randolf.

The KAZOO! Oh Ann you warm my heart!
I was in a Kazoo Band several years back! (ok ok MANY years back!) I have three kazoos somewhere in this house of mine. One looks like a regular Kazoo. One looks like a trumpet and one looks like a trombone.

Well, I'm a multi-instrumentalist, so I like different instruments for different reasons. I really like the sonic range of synthesizers, though. They can be anything from gently subtle to thunderously majestic.
But for the whole "pose-for-the-chicks" deal...nothing beats the guitar!:cool:
11-29-2001, 07:02 PM
Oh dear dave! very sad,posing never seems to record very well ,dont you think?
11-29-2001, 07:28 PM
It depends on who's playing them. Tweleve string guitars have a cool sound though!

posing never seems to record well, don't you think?
No, but it sure get you a few bras on the mikestand when you play live....:D

Got to be the guitar. Yeah I know big surprise coming from GUITman. But I also love the cello. I was first chair in high school. Haven't played it much since then though.
11-29-2001, 10:56 PM
i plan on learning how to play the guitar soon.so i can play some nirvana/sublime songs.

Guitar goes first, ´cause I´m playing it. Then everything else like drums, keyboards and pianos and all classical instrumetns (violin, cello...) and of course VOCAL.:D :whip:

The definition of "band" is "several musicians, and a drummer."
Hard to beat a pipe organ on Sunday, or bagpipes on St. Pat's, or guitar most anytime. My fave depends on my mood.

My personal favourite is the pink oboe, I have a small one at home and I love to watch women perform on it.
12-01-2001, 06:31 PM
I love the bass, have been plating for a while...
I have a 4 string Rickenbacker 4003...
(it was a pain in the ass finding it...)
12-01-2001, 11:02 PM
The alto sax was my bag...haven't played since high school though.
12-02-2001, 07:46 PM
But I prefer tulips on my organ.

Dave, we have way too much in common man ;)
I, as a multi-instrumentalist, have been playing Bb Clarinet the longest. I've played guitar since I was 13, drums and piano since 14, and bass since i was 15. Tho it's always a blast to get behind the drum kit, I think i'm gonna have to go with guitar as my favorite. Nothin beats rockin out with an acoustic. Too bad I sing like an amputee though (can't hold a note, can't carry a tune) ;)
Oh, and Drunkenmaster, as I've said before, I love Sublime! I can play almost all of their songs, but I love Santeria, it's a blast to play. The coolest song to play in the car is definately Cisco Kid, from "Robbin the Hood". Gotta love New Song, KRS-One, them spanish songs, Greatest Hits, Rivers of Babylon...the list goes on...

My favorite is guitar. Second favorite would be paino. Now in an odd and unexpected 3rd, bagpipes.... blame that one on the Dropkick Murphys.

Strelnikov, I found that remark quite offensive. It almost seems as if you are saying drummers are not talented. I have been playing for 14 years now, and have developed great skill. I think that drums are just as difficult to play as any other insturment. It may look easy, but it takes VERY good coordination, and quick reflexes. And if you plan on being a good drummer, it takes years of practice to perfect it. I hope you did not mean anything by that, but it sure looks like it.......
12-04-2001, 01:22 AM
Don't worry about it bro. I'm trying really hard to get good at these here drums...and you're right. It is hard. Some people just don't know. Let it slide. :)

Iv'e been a bassist for about 10 years now. I've found that there is no instrument out there I'd rather play. Being able to work within the low frequencies and shine while "in the pocket" is the best feeling in the world to me. Bassists like Les Claypool and Charles Mingus proved that we don't always have to be holding down the bottom(Thought I'd plug a couple of my favorite players). Just thought I'd add this little thought do to previous posts: anybody who's recorded in a studio and played to a click track knows that drums are really one of the toughest instruments out there. Although each instrument (even the "kazoo" I'd imagine) offers it's own unique challenges if you choose to play it well.

Answer:- Three musicians and a drummer! But on a more serious note Krokus is right, but I would take the argument further. All instruments are equally difficult, but the point at which you run in to serious difficulties varies, for example any fool can sit down at a kit and make a noise on it, but ask the same person to get a note out of a French Horn! but the fool who makes a noise on the kit and thinks its easy needs only to listen to Tony Williams or Buddy Rich to realise he will never be able to play like that as long as he has a hole in his arse!

CAN I GET AN AMEN!!!!!!!!

When I was a music education major, we discussed how you can stereotype people by their instruments. Trumpet players all think they are the Don Juan's of the orchestra. Oboe players have beady eyes. Sax players are really laid back. Low Brass players always look like they have a hangover.
For orchestra/band I play tuba. I like to play organ/piano. I don't think my voice is good, but the most perfect instrument in the world is the human voice. (here we go again strel)

Well maybe up to a point, but try doing a gig with TWO sax players then you will see a different side to them. Its that same dynamic you get when two women turn up at a party in the same outfit and you get that "whats SHE doing here" vibe all night. You can forget any group interaction for the night and you can kiss goodbye to any solo space for any one other than "Zoot prima" and "Stan donna" who will both develop severe cases of musical dysentry lasting the whole night. Do I come across as a touch cynical about the music business to any one!???
12-13-2001, 12:03 AM
Yup...with good reason. I've seen the same thing.
A major pipe organ properly tuned to its cathedral is the prince of instruments. Voice has its place though, and it's a lot more portable.
