Any Musicians out there? Can't think of anything better than music to go along with my beer! So I try to make my own as well. I play (try to play) guitar. I have a POS acoustic and an Epiphone SG..1966 LTD. What do you play?

I'm a drummer and vocalist. I also play bass. I haven't been in a band since 2008 and haven't toured since the summer of '07.

Yesterday the guitarist of the band I used to tour in gave me a call and said their drummer just quit. They have a tour scheduled to support an album they're about to release (which I recorded) in March. They want me to tour with them for two weeks. I'm going to call the guy today and let him know I'll do it.

I figure it'll be just long enough for me to remember both why I loved touring and why I'm glad I stopped touring over 5 years ago.

I'm a guitarist been playing for about a decade, but I'm not in a band or anything, I alos have a POS acoustic, like a hundred buck epiphone, I have 2 guitars that are working 1 that needs minor work, and 3 that need major work and are project guitars. The 2 that work are of course the 2 most expensive, Faded SG and an American special Strat. My 1 that needs minor repair is a dean something or other it's like a 200-300 dollar guitar and the locking tremelo needs some work. My project guitars are varied, one I'm gonna sell once I get it to work because I don't like it. I bought it off another guy who tried to rebuild it and he did a horrible paint job and it's not worth my effort I tried installing a locking tremelo and it didn't work. My big project guitar is painted, and installing the hardware will be easy, except that I have a floyd rose speedloader I'm putting on it. Pretty awesome pickup setup once I get it installed should be really hot. My other project I haven't started but it's an old Epi Les Paul basic that I want to throw some nice humbuckers on and use it again for ease.

I play basketball, but not very well.

I also sing, play guitar and bass, also not very well.

I fumble my way around a keyboard.

I started learning how to play drums several years ago and then stopped.

Oh, yeah, I think I can still play a trumpet.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

I play a mean air guitar. I gave up that life style for a good family life.
People that like light beer don't like the taste of beer they just like to pee a lot!

I play trumpet. Anyone want to start a ska band?
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

I'm a drummer, but also play guitar, bass and a little bit of piano/keyboard. Haven't played regularly in years in fact my drums are taken down right now due to lack of space after having a kid. A few friends and I used to be a "band" years ago and played some parties and a wedding.

I play guitar for a hobby. Me and some friends have a fake band named Midnight Snack. We liked the combination of connotations.

If anyone is interested, I run a monthly song writing game. There is a facebook page and a blog (where I post the songs and you can vote on them). Each month there is a specified genre and subject. I'd love to get some more participants
