I have played music for a number of years. Church worship, and with some bands over the years. Nothing spectacular. I am getting into electronic music now, mostly because I am a nerd, and also because I decided that it would be fun to break out of my old music habits since I am old enough now to objectively listen to all types of music with an open mind and find things that I enjoy in each of the different genres.

Who else plays? Any websites with samples of your tunes?

congos and bongos are my instrument of choice. I also pick around on the guitar and have recently picked up the mandolin and loving it. Hubby writes and plays guitar. He is a very talented writer and singer. Lucky for me 'cause I get serenaded A LOT when he is here and not on the road working.

We play at a few local bars for fun and pocket change, but have yet to record together. I don't know why. Lack of time and money, I guess.

I'd bet there are plenty of musicians here at DPC. I'm a middle school orchestra teacher, professional violinist/violist, and to shake things up a bit, I've played synthesizers for a few bands over the years. www.johnnysonic.com/ is my website for electronic music and my favorite song example so far is offline. ;)

I play a mean triangle.
10/25/2008 02:50:36 PM · #5
And so, we have 3 Nikon musicians and 0 Canon musicians thus far... :P
ETA: oop, Marc had to go and slip that triangle in first. Timing is everything on triangle.

Add another Pentaxian into the mix: I am basically retired from playing. I was a concert French hornist in Indiana, and a rock guitarist in the Chicago area for several years before moving to Florida. I'm afraid it dates me, but we opened for groups like Cheap Trick (back in the day.)

Violin, played since I was 8 ;)

I'm not very good tho, I can't sight-read music so I didn't get very far. And this is certainly not for lack of trying. I can sight-read notes, but not rhythms...causes problems and frustrations.

I also play handbells in my college's handbell choir.

I play the synthesizer and wooden (asian) flute and a very little bit of acoustic guitar... all by the ear.. never learnt. Do I count? I hope that makes 2 Canon musicians here now ;-)

Oh well, another theory mercilessly shot down.

Drums here. I started about 1965 playing dances for money with my friends. I did the music thing full time for about 20 years. I still play a little once in a while with old friends and other musicians. My son has the drum kit that I started with, which was used in 1965.
I almost quit playing about 1982 or so, and have smaller drum kit now that I use for music GTG's. I also play guitar a little, mostly rhythm, and did quite a lot of technical things like engineering for recordings and running sound. It's a lot different now from then. We quit about the time CD's were first getting popular.

My old drum kit.
Oh, and I use Nikon lenses most of the time : )

I am one of the DPC musicians around here and my moniker describes my first instrument...

I play trombone, bass trombone, baritone, tuba, some trumpet, guitar, and piano.

I currently play in a few bands including the Vic Elsi Big Band (swing and dance music) that plays regularly at Stash's, a club in New London Conn, a brass quartet that specializes in jazz holiday stuff (we play around Connecticut for around Christmas), and I play guitar in Mass on Sunday mornings.

And here's a few entries with a musical theme that I have entered over the past couple of years.

Sad, a young kid stifling an old man's creativity before it can even blossom. :P

Wow Trish, that's an impressive bio! My wife is a cellist also and if I could start life over again I would give up my violin to be a cellist. It's simply the most beautiful sounding instrument ever put together by human hands (just my humble opinion of course).
10/25/2008 05:05:43 PM · #22
all keyboards (my mom said i started playing full songs using both hands at age 4...started lessons at age 6), flute, guitar, a bit of violin, and i sing.

Bass guitar. Though my brother is by far the more talented musician of the family (he's outrageously talented) and I had a lot of fun playing in a band with him last year. We rocked out in Battle of the Bands on Michigan State's campus, had a blast! Here's our old myspace. That's me in the dress. I also play Rock Band whenever I get the chance - does that count?

I'm another drummer. Been playing for almost 9 years now, and I love it. Trying to teach myself how to play piano/keyboard, which is pretty fun.

Other than playing music, I enjoy recording. Got a mini home recording studio set-up, and that's also a lot of fun to work on.
