Do you play any instruments? guitar, bass, ukulele

Have you ever wanted to learn to play an instrument(s)? have always wanted to learn the sax. i tried to build a bamboo sax, and i even made my own bamboo reed for it (lookup xaphoon) but it sounds like a dying duck. :rofl: Also kinda love the drums but have never tried it on a real set. I would buy a set just to learn Tom Sawyer and that would be enough.

What do you listen to? random stuff. everything from the beastie boys, old country, 80's rap, billie eilish, lady gaga (mainly the star is born soundtrack)

How do you listen? some CD's in my kitchen player, but mostly spotify. I'd def listen on a record player if i still had one, and would start collecting records from estate sales etc, pissing off my gf with another collection of stuff. :mamoru:

Dont play any instruments, don't have time to play.

Listen to all kinds of music, from old country, old rap, rock, classic rock, alternative like jack fm if you have that station near you.

I used to have some turntables when I was younger, always wanted to learn to play the guitar or drums or something. Played piano a bit and know a few songs like hot cross buns and happy birthday lol
I listen to Musi or pandora, sometimes I turn on the radio but my taste is all over the place.

Grew up in a musical family. Dad played Guitar, Piano, Accordion, brass instruments, etc by ear. Could never read a note. I learned to play Piano via lessons but let that fade. I have always been musical and play anything from a lighter in my mouth clicking my teeth to a large church organ. My latest is a Jew's harp. I found a nice set of Hohner Mouth Harps in each key in a nice case.

I guess I would like to play the Uke or Violin if I was going to try to give something new a try.

I listen to a very weird range of things. Techno, Alternative, Indie Rock, Classic Rock, Country, Classical, etc. No Rap and no hip hop.

I usually just listen to streaming music. Mostly from Pandora or iHeart Media. But some other obscure streaming services as well. I love random independent stations like whats on Soma.fm

Played French Horn/Mellophone in high school, had a cheap horn for a few years after that while in college. Been thinking about picking up a trumpet since they're cheaper and fingerings are the same as mellophone pretty much. But don't wanna spend the money on a trumpet and mouthpiece.Wife wants to learn the ukulele, she can already play cello, piano, bass, and guitar.

I listen to a ton of different stuff, mostly through Spotify. Pretty much anything but country lol.

I'd love to play something like guitarr or wind-instrument but living with thin walls and odd neighbours, this is not the time for it.

I do listen to Spotify a lot, but trying to move as much of it as possible offline, and instead rely on Spotify as a source for discovering new music instead.

My music tastes are quite eclectic in terms of genres, but according to Spotify i do listen most frequently to indie folk a lot, which i wouldn't have bet on. I have recently started discovering some really amazing 50s music thanks to a friends playlis, and starting to slowly consider getting a vinyl player and a few specific records for it.

Do you play any instruments? used to play trombone, baritone and tuba and clarinet.....but this was a long time ago.

Have you ever wanted to learn to play an instrument(s)? have always wanted to learn guitar and would love to get one or even start off with a cigarbox 4 string guitar.

What do you listen to? random stuff. everything from the beastie boys, old country, 80's rap, billie eilish, lady gaga (mainly the star is born soundtrack) and also everything out there. I travel a lot so I listen to pretty much any culture, genre......ANYTHING!

How do you listen? usually youtube music, but sometimes the areas i go to have no service, so i'm looking into getting one of those custom classic ipods with 512gb ssd and 3000mah battery.
