    Er... not many Americans here, actually. I'm British, as are quite a few members here.

    Tried jazz flute? You might also want to look up a band called Jethro Tull. Their lead singer, Ian Anderson, used the flute for more than classical music, I can tell you.

    You play an instrument?

    *Clears throat*

    I play...


      Piano
      Guitar (acoustic and electric)
      Drums
      Recorder
      Various folk instruments


    I also sing in a chorale (with lipsy!) and conduct my own choir and band on occasions. Smile

    Have you tried Danelectro pedals? They're meant to be really good. Some of my kids have gone on to use them and they speak very highly of them. Danelectro sometimes go for a very old-fashioned 'valve amp' sound but that's perfect for rock. Simply perfect.

    The Danelectro site can be found here - very retro.

    Also very cool, the Pearl Dream Kit website - build and play your own custom drums online. Needs the Flash Player.

    I play guitar and keyboard. I am currently shopping around for a new electric as my Epiphone Les Paul Special II is ready for retirement and I never pushed it very hard over the 3 years I've had it but oh well it'll become my "experiment guitar". Great now I sound like Eddie Van Halen affraid if you've seen his "franken"strat you'll know what I'm talking about as it's parts taken from many different guitars.

    I use to play the piano.

    Now I'm unable to.

    I sing though. I've been singing since I could talk. Competed and all as well.

    I finally got my electric guitar working again - it's had an iffy pickup switch for years and kept cutting out when I hook it up to my practice amp. I finally sorted it today and it sounds very cool. It's only a little Leem amp, yet it's got quite a crunchy sound for a littl'un.

    *Does the 'Yay! I can play my strat again' dance*

    My strat looks somewhat like this:


    The thread went in the bridge and the tremolo arm drops out too easily. I've been meaning to get a new bridge fitted but I don't feel I can trust anyone with my little strat. Suspect

    yeah pretty much like that. Only with an SG body, 2 humbuckers, a bigsby whammy bar, sprezel locking tuners, 2 teal racing stripes going from the bridge to the neck, a san jose sharks logo above the bridge, a #14 on the bottom horn and maybe get it custom fitted with an Ibanez orginal wizard neck with a Gibson Anugs Young Sig SG headstock.

    also if anyone wants to hear me sing aswell I will do it Smile

    If I had a microphone I would put something up for you. I've been looking to see if I could find a cheap microphone but the cheap ones seem to give poor quality recordings so once I find a mic I can afford, It would be my horror.But I'll do it. Smile

    I sound terrible though so no high expectations xD bounce

    My new guitar!
    muso
    Bought myself a new acoustic today... it's a 3/4 size as I only have little hands.



    It sounds very pretty, too. It chimes.
