Do you Play?

[ Edited ]
19 replies 197 views Edited Aug 2, 2013

Yes I know a Music General forum exist but it is not very active and this is more of a question for my fellow Off-Topic posters. 

 

Do you play an instrument and if so what do you play ( show it off with some pics), who are some of your favorite players?

 

Still learning to play Bass I have a Ibanez SR300

 

SR300

 

Bass Players I like

 

Victor Wooten

 

 

 

Les Claypool

 

Jaco Pastoruis

 

 

 

Robert Trujillo (back with Infectious Grooves)

 

 

 

Edit: Can't wait for Rocksmith 2014, Session mode is going to be a blast.

I play a bit of guitar and some keyboard. I also play saxophone but I'm too lazy to take it out. And no, they're not lefty guitars. PS just decided to turn them 90 degrees for no reason.

 

Here's also a shameless plug to a song I made recently using the instruments below - https://soundcloud.com/ml40592/just-like-yesterday

Edit 2: for the Sax side, do you like Karl Denson?

I play amateur electric guitar haha. I use TabPro and learn songs that I like. If you would ask me to play a certain scale, I couldn't do it. I honestly just like playing for fun and jamming out with my favorite bands.

You should look into getting Rocksmith 2014, you would probably enjoy it. 

 

Edit: it comes out in October.

I don't really have a favorite electric guitar player. Maybe David Gilmour? But my favorite bassist and keyboardist by far are John Paul Jones and Richard Wright.

 

This bass performance is one of the most incredible I've heard, and it really makes the song - 

 

 

And then Richard Wright's Summer '68 (can't find it alone, had to plug the full album)

I honestly don't know too many sax players. I played it when I was younger.

I play a wicked air guitar by Less No More.

But seriously, I think it's cool you guys play.

Sadly, no.

I am completely devoid of musical talent, with the exception of being a good whistler.

Sucks too, because I'm enthralled by the piano and would love to be able to play one.
