    all the bass players, any of you play upright, or all bass guitar? fretless bass guitar for me.
    electric, classical, acoustic and a jazzbox on the skinny strings.

    I play Bass :)

    i can play both electric and upright, but I usually stick with electric - much more suitable for my style of music :)

    awesome. i've always wanted to play a doghouse, my wife would put me in one if i bought one more instrument though...

    Nice! I have an electric P-bass, but would KILL to have an upright - I think mostly so I could jump off of it in gigs like Scott Owen in The Living End.

    I'm a singer. Wish I knew how to play an instrument.
  • Musician! Music teacher, singer/songwriter. Trained classically (vocal) and like jazz, blues, folk & funk. Noodle around on the piano and guitar, but vocals is my main thang. LOVE the idea of a collaboration on MFP!

    for any one who cares i'm in a prog rock band - toehider.com :)

    Woooooooooaaaaaah! You guys played support at the Gov a little while ago?! My boyfriend liked the set so much he bought a CD (which turned out to be more eclectic). But we must say "yes yes"

    Dunno if anyone looks at this thread anymore,
    but I'm a working musician, a trombonist.

    Add me if you like.

    Hi. I don't have a band, but I am a singer. Classical. Used to sing opera, now I have children I sing in the cathedral choir here as the rehearsal times are possible to fit around children. I am also trying to get into more concert singing as then I can choose my own rehearsal times.

    I play brass instruments (trumpet, trombone, tuba). I'm a gospel trumpet player.
    I know the basics of keyboard and bass guitar...just haven't had ANY time to practice those :(

    Guitar, touring in Germany in April. Heavy Metal. But, favor blues and hard rock.

    I play saxophone. I've also learned some percussion and played trumpet for a number of years, but i strongly prefer the baritone sax. I can play alto and tenor sax too, but i haven't invested much time in those. No band currently.
  • ukulele, classical guitar, flutophone, recorder, vocalist... lol!:laugh: I'm a music teacher...:wink:

    Hiya! I'm primarily a vocalist and guitarist. I'm also a songwriter. I play piano better than guitar but I prefer guitar. I also play sax, though there's little call for it in the bands I play with. I've been in several working (part time) bands, both cover and original. The last band I was in was primarily original (few covers thrown in for fun) and we did pretty well locally.

    I stopped when I was out of commission for several months post surgery. I'm actually looking for a band now but it's tough to find people over 30 (40?) in my area who want to play indie/alt rock.
  • I dont have a band, just jam out with friends, I write songs, sing and play guitar
