Played the trombone from 4th grade to my senior year of high school.  Considering I repeated 7th grade (hey, I skipped second because I was smart; parents held me back in 7th 'cause I was an asshole) and pretty much let it drop once I hit college, I played for about 9 years.

It's a shame I don't play anymore; I was good (not to toot my own horn or anything).  Everyone told me I was great, but I wasn't.  I never worked hard enough to be great.  I could have been, but I fear that train has likely come and gone with my youth.

I'm self-taught on the guitar, which means I can play various different combinations of about 6 different chords.

...I really think I need to get back to the Bone, man.  I miss that baby.

Yeah, I kinda have the same thing here.  I was pretty good in high school but I never practiced.  I was supposed to go to school as a viola performance major and then my hands fell apart on me.  I should have stayed on sax but now I'm a has-been who just played in a couple bars when I lived in TX.  Which I'm damn fine with.  I'm not fine with the viola part.    I'm gonna try to start playing again but we'll see if my hands start getting all stupid again.  And if I actually practice this time.

Ooh! I wrote music and hopefully if I can find a recorder I can upload it to here, I'll let you know if I get it uploaded so you can hears it! It's in E...not sure what mode, I think Lydian I'd have to remember the notes. ^_^

That was always my problem, especially after high school - I could just never find a space where I felt comfortable practicing.  Didn't want to do it at the dorms at school (I majored in music my first semester, and I practiced not a LICK outside of ensemble), and most certainly didn't want to do it at my parents' house when my family was home.  So...  it just never happened.  And it's not like riding a bike, man.  If you don't use it, you WILL lose it.

One of my only major regrets, that is.

That would be very cool.

Looks like I'm really late to this one... I play guitar though, started about three years ago. I guess I'm all right, but not awesome, and I still can't improvise solos well. I need to work on my scales.

Guitar.  Acoustic.   But it's a stinking new Ibanez.  Someone jacked my old Martin.

Harmonica. I didn't have the money for a chromatic when I bought one so I got a diatonic in D instead. It's a Hohner Marine Band. I've not been playing long and It's self taught. Not very good really. I tinkered with a guitar for a little bit, a mandolin too, but I never got far.

okay let's see here 

Grade 6: Recorder.

Grade 7: tenor Recorder.

Grades 8 -?: alto sax.

currently: learning accoustic guitar with my brother, and self teaching myself the harmonica in C and E Keys.

I want to get my sax back. it was a rental from the school and when i left i had to return it. the problem is getting another one is so damnably expensive that it's going to take a miracle for me to start playing again. oh and I'm going to try for flute. Preferably a wooden one.

god i love celtic music.
