Hey guys,
Since we have a lot of creative people online, I'm remaking the thread for those musical people to post whatever they like about their craft on here.
To make it interesting, you can post your favorite instrument (you own), favorite piece to play and an anecdote from playing music.
Here's my baby:

Although it's quite difficult to choose a favorite thing to play but if I have to choose it would be this:

I don't really have something cool to tell but I do play loud. My neighbours can hear me but our houses aren't adjacent to each other. There's about 20 meters in between the two. With a row of trees in between. Maybe I should turn it down a notch...

1. Cort Action Bass, first bass I had, still my baby. Mine has stickers on it though.


2. Another Cort ( I love cort basses) I got for 100 bucks on sale, only sounds good in lower tuning, like D and C Standard


3. My Cort (Again) Evl Acoustic. Its okay, just looks good.


4. Schecter Demon 6. Really nice lower tuning guitar. Sounds great for everything from blues to metal.



5. Ibanez Acoustic bass. Sounds amazing through a chorus pedal.

I have 4 other guitars, 2 are cheap kids acoustic ones from when I was little and the other two are homemade which I can't bothered taking pictures of. Also have 2 drum kits, massive 2000watt Pa and heaps of misc stuff. Ta da.

My favorite instrument: The french horn (my instrument). Favorite piece: too many. I also play a few songs on guitar and mandolin, play a tiny bit of trumpet, and can get a good sound out of a saxophone.

I was actually getting into bassoon for a bit, until I got to a point where I couldn't play most notes with the crappy condition it was in, and then dental surgery (modified root canal), so I took over the bass drum for the rest of that year.... And not even the good bass-driven drum-line bass drum.. Just thump . . . thump . . . thump. . . . thump . . .

I really wish to possibly get into bassoon again, or trumpet, or trombone, or saxophone.
My main goal is to try to form a Ska band* later in life.

Yay! another french horn player! Mine I got from my grandpa (who's pretty old), and he got it used. It's a double horn, so almost twice as much weight as a normal one.

I thought I'd do this since the thread is back.
My first bass, works pretty well for most stuff.

So I think this is probably what my drum set looked like when I first got it, I've basically replaced all of the parts of it though because it sounded horrible

I've also got two guitars, (one electric and one acoustic) but I cant actually figure out what kind they are... :/ (they're pretty old)
I've got a fiddle as well, and I share a keyboard with my brother, was too lazy to try to find pictures of those.
