    Who of you call themselves musicians?

    What do you play? Who are your 3 biggest influances?

    I play guitar, have been for 5 yrs or so now.

    Jerry Cantrell, Ted Nugent, and Jimmy Page are my 3 favorite guitarests of all time. Jerry and Jimmy captivate me with the rythims and melodies the construct, and I just love the way Uncle Ted can jam!

    I'm a guitar player myself, for about 13 yrs or so.

    I guess my biggest influences would be Stevie Ray Vaugn and Kirk Hammett. Not the same style, i know, but they're the two guitarists i've always looked up to

    I have always wanted to play an instrument. Anything really. I have a few guitars around and a mandolin but I never have learned to play anything.

    Its not too hard. I thought myself how to play the guitar. It just takes time, and practice...LOTS of practice!

    I play guitar, I have lots and lots of band influences, Alice in Chains, Fleetwood Mac, Faith No More, Led Zeppelin and a lot more. I like SRV a lot but I never tried to play any of his music, Texas Flood FTW!

    Keyboard and bass guitar. Learned the keyboard as a child. Parents bought a Hammond spinet organ and I took lessons in the late 50s. Still have the Hammond but haven't played for a few years. Still looking for the oil needed to fill the "generator box." Bass guitar in high school. In a band then. Kept up with practice after school. Have a J. Reynolds bass now with a 200 watt amplifier. I trot it out, occasionally, when the neighbors get a little "exuberant" (read loud) with their Juan goes to the fiesta to eat his tacos music.

    I've been playing drums for 13 years in a jam band. Nothing fancy, just me and 2 guitarists get together twice a week at my "studio" in my basement. Messed around with the bass a litlle but then moved onto guitar about 5 years ago and got a little carried away...ended up with 8 in all :eek: when I got laid off I had to cull ther herd a bit now it's just 3.

    I guess my influences include, but aren't limited to Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, Animal from the muppets :D Carter Beauford, Lars Ulrich, John Bohnham...

    Show off your gear...SG on the left isn't mine, neither is the half stack but the ES 339 is...

    Don't be so modest. I heard you can also whistle "Dream a Little Dream of Me" and burp out "Wild Thing".



    I played the violin many years ago but I was never very good at it. But I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The difference between a 'violin' and a 'fiddle' is how it's played (amongst a couple other things like the shape of the bridge). I definitely played the violin.

    Music

    Greetings All:

    I love to sit and play my 12 string Guitars. Have been playing since the 60's and love it. Have and old Gibson B25-12N, 12 String hollow body git-fiddle and for other music have a rare, Baldwin Green Sunburst solid body 12 String electric. Both awesome guitars.

    Nothing better than sitting out on the deck on a beautiful day or evening and playing my 12 strings while singing John Denver songs. :):):):)

    Regards: Lastcast, Ranger Recon, Class of 67.
