I know we have a lot of music lovers on Gentlemint, but I thought it might be interesting to see how many of us actually play an instrument.
I began playing music in junior high. Although I have played many different things over the years, I was always a drummer first. I played for many years until college when I had to sell my kit for extra funds. I then went 25 years without playing a lick but have recently picked it up again. Amazing how quickly it came back after all that time.
During that lapse, I began to play the guitar more and now own several acoustics and a couple of electrics. It is important to note that I am not classically trained so technically, I play guitar but I am not a guitar player. I have friends who are far more talented but I can hold my own as a rhythm player for the most part. Fun fact: I do not play barre chords. I hate them (mainly because I have a hard time keeping the first finger in the proper position).
What about everyone else?
