I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum, I'm a coloratura soprano and could probably break glass... although I've never tried. XD
Wow! Such talent, I presume! I hope you feel my jealously. xD

I suppose. Unfortunately it's being wasted right now, I haven't done any singing in a few years.

I used to play Clarinet, Guitar and Bass Guitar. Though I kind of stopped after I broke some of my fingers, and I never got around to picking them back up again. I might have to try them again sometime, though I wasn't that great at playing them in the first place.

Mayaxpapaya: You should really get back into it! Its so fun. :3
Shayde: Clarinets and Guitars. <3 Beautiful pair right there. I have juvenile arthritis in my fingers and I still play. It hurts every now and then but in my eyes its completely worth it. Good luck if you pick 'em back up, though! C:

Midi keyboard. To be honest I can barley read notes

( By that I mean I know whole notes quarter notes and what not but If you asked me if a note was A or a B flat i would have no clue.)

I've been playing flute for six years. Best six years ever, band camp especially-greatest days ever.

Self-taught Guitar player, I want to say for about ten years now. I also do pit and regular percussion. In band I vary from bells, glockenspiel (my personal favorite), chimes, (very rarely) timpani, xylophone, vibraphone, and bass drum.
Edit: I just noticed that Near was the one who started this. You already know what I play, silly.

Hhmm, let's see. As of now I play:

-Alto Saxophone
-Soprano Saxophone
-Clarinet
-Simple piano
-Simple drums

I used to play Cello, but I quit because the teacher sucked. I play in our school's Jazz Band, and sing in their Jazz Choir. I play in our regular band too, and just a month ago I formed a sort of Jazz Combo for talent shows and stuff for our school. Right now we're learning the Cantina Band song from Star Wars.

I've played in a lot of cool places in my city thank to my school, and I've had audiences of around three thousand people. Longest set I've ever played was 55 charts of Jazz pieces. I've even had the pleasure of going into Disney Land's recording studios and recording tracks for fun on our Band's tour to LA last year.

My Dad's a drummer for two Jazz Bands and one of said bands managed to record an album of original work. They currently have a second one in the works too.

Seriously I could go on for a LONG time...

Hmmm, I've always wanted to play guitar but my fingers are two stubby to effectively make the chords. I tried learning the trumpet for two years but I could get past middle C, as I have tiny, undersized asthmatic lungs. Sooo...next I'm desperate to learn how to play the accordian.

I have played piano for some...fourteen years though. I'm not bad at it either, though a little lazy about the whole practice thing ever since I lost my teacher a few years back. But I still plug away at it.

It's never the same as a real acoustic instrument though...

I am a master of every instrument.

Okay not really.

But I can sing badly

I've always liked the idea of trying to learn to play, but I'm not good at being patient. Same reason I fail to learn how to draw. I can't be patient and do things the long way.

There's some friends-ish/more like people I know that I get on well with that are good at music though, have their own small rock cover band playing at the local clubs and bars. Yet to have seen them but a lot of people go to them.

That's about it though

I play the bass guitar, I've been trying to learn all my favorite songs' basslines, much of it is anime soundtrack music.

My mum plays a ton of instruments, so I play some. I play flute, cello, and my mum is going to teach me the piano over the summer.

Fantastic, a lot easier than playing the guitar. I'd definitely recommend you get a Lazy Ukulele - they're cheap and are good for beginners.

Really? I will really look for one. I already play guitar so maybe it'll be really easy to me. C:

Definitely! It's just like a guitar but it has four strings and sounds a lot happier. :B

I know what I'm doing with my Christmas moneeeey~ Also! Another gift I got was a replica of the Ocarina of Time. I'm pretty proud of it. xD

I play guitar, but my band recently broke up and most of what I play is metal anyway, so I don't know if that counts as band geek.
