The guitar's my brother's (though he never really learned how to play) but yeah I learned piano - we actually have an upright piano that's been a little...neglected as of late :whistle:

when I was really young I first learned to read music on the piano.

in elementary and middle school I played the violin. in high school I played the trumpet in jazz orchestra.

 

they didn't let guitars play in orchestra of course but I had first picked up a guitar in high school as well. didn't take us long to form a little punk group and start playing in our local battle of the bands. been playing the guitar ever since. today I've got 10 stringed instruments; several makes of acoustic and electric, a bass guitar, mountain dulcimer, 5-string banjo, soprano ukulele, A-style mandolin, and a cigar-box 4-string fiddle.

 

lately I'm starting to get the urge to pick up the piano again.

like maybe I'll grab a nice electric keyboard to make up for it. would compliment the other instruments nicely.

I have an acoustic guitar but I've always been too lazy to properly learn how to play it. Though I got a harmonica for my birthday a long time ago and that's the only instrument I've tried "learning" how to play. It came with a bunch of instructions and some notes on how to play it. I kinda miss it tbh

Damn, I just did the piano and a little saxophone, makes me wish I'd continued with that kind of stuff - but I didn't really have the inclination to play the piano when there was often someone trying to watch telly or read a book 2 metres away. Kinda feel bad letting the upright stagnate, but well...Can plug headphones into the guitar amp so should be alright there.

Electric keyboards are alright, if you can get one with weighted keys that's a world of difference - especially after playing on upright/grand pianos, clunky cheap keys are really meh.

yeah I've got an amazing tube amp that would fill a small concert hall so headphones are a must when playing at home.

 

found some pictures.

there's a handful of my guitars in this topic http://gtaforums.com...w-guitar-topic/

 

Spoiler

 

most recently I bought a used Strat from the 80s.

sunburst wood top, cream pearl pick guard.

^grats on the gear, Bugeras are great. That strat is so tasty too :cool: 

Dagger,  you will burn that f*cking keyboard(the smaller one). The amp's a bit uh... tame as well, you could probably get something infinitely better for cheaps used. I found a used Roland Cube 30 in the UK for 30 bucks, which is a genuinely good little thing. It's got a headphone jack as well. (The tiny Frontman is appalingly bad- I try my hardest to NEVER sell it to people at the store) 

 

Is the bigger keyboard a Roland D-5? Those are d o p e. Cool synth sounds.

Yeah the smaller one was just one brought a decade ago for my brother, it's nothing special - same with the guitar, they weren't really used much so :p

and aye the bigger one is a D-5, can't seem to find the cables for it though.

if this thread is what passes for "dead", and constant ADD sh/t-spamming means a topic is "alive," then I'd much rather be roadkill...

it's just too 'busy' for me.

kind of annoying to the eyes.

 

I prefer the flat blue background to the crowded gray one with all the character's faces.
