    Which one is it? Something exotic? Or just the common instruments?

    I started with the piano (not totally voluntary ) then moved to the recorder, but only to get a piece of paper that allowed me to take guitar lessons. That's what I'm playing now: I've got four guitars (three acoustic) and I like to play some HardRock and songs like those of Red Hot Chilly Peppers, of which Californication is my favourite.

    I'm just a guitar freak

    1. Piano (my repertoire spans from Chopsticks to all Beethoven's 32 Sonatas, Debussy and Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue) - I studied piano for two years at Melbourne Uni during my senior years at high school and received first class honours

    2. Trumpet - great stress reliever - jazz and classical both accommodated.

    I have done up to grade 5 Piano, couldn't go any further because I did not have the theory. I hardly play any more because I do not have a piano now. But I have been playing the Alto Saxophone since 1993.

    I can't play any instruments and I don't have any intentions of learning. WinAmp on my PC is good enough.

    The only instrument I can play is the Trumpet. I've been playing it for about 5 years now and love it.

    We just bought a piano at our house. My 2.5 year-old daughter plays it better than I do. I took about five years of lessons when I was in school, but I don't remember any of it.

    Uilleann Pipes (wha?) , low whistle, flute, guitar.

    Started playing the whistle when I was 6, progressed to the flute, took up the pipes when I was 10 and I've been playing them now for 19 years.

    Just play guitar for fun sometimes.

    I started with piano when I was 8, then moved on to recorder when I was 9/10, dropped both at about 11 and moved on to clairinet, droped that at 12 and have been playing percussion (Drum set is my favorite) for the past 3 years. I'm in 6 bands now and if you wanna talk about stress relievers...just imagine hitting something as hard as you can for half an hour/an hour!

    In my 7 year musical carreer, I can play the following songs on the piano:

    Chopsticks
    Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
    Ode to Joy

    I prefer to listen to music

    Aidan, you better slow down or you'll get pidgeonholed as a piano prodigy. LOL! I think you can still play more songs than I can.
