    I am so not musically inclined. I probably wouldn't even be able to learn how to play a freakin' triangle.

    I play keyboards in a prog/rock band. Also have my own homestudio. You can say I am professional when I get income from gigs :) , and record profits.

    Never you mind.
    Pianist and music producer. Performed a few times in college as a singer and in highschool on the piano. Other than that the only "professional" part of my music is selling 3 beats for online flash games.

    Drums! I was in a band probably before you were born and was paid for gigs. So I guess that would make me a professional...

    Drummer here! Not a pro, but been playing since 12. Recorded a few songs as a guest drummer and played in several gigs in the late 90s! Best times of my life..

    I don't perform anything professionally. If I didn't have such bad social anxiety, I would have pursued singing. I love to sing.

    I play several instruments. The only one I'm very good at is clarinet. I play at concert level. I've been playing for 20 years. I also play guitar (not very well, I'm left handed and play right handed), a bit of drums, marimbas, xylophones, and a bit of piano.

    I only play one at a time. I can hardly play anything and sing at the same time. Not coordinated enough. :smirk:

    I play lead guitar. I'm interested in blues and World music (American primitive guitar, Celtic, Middle Eastern, Indian). I create my own tunings. Need a bunch of guitars for that. I also play drums and a bit of piano.

    Music is a wonderful thing, a great civilizing influence.

    Jimi Hendrix was left handed and played right-handed guitar. A lot of great players are like this. It's an advantage. All the hard stuff is happening with the left hand, so to have that as your dominant is a plus. Put an hour a day into scales and you'll have full control in about 3 months.
