What all musical instruments can you play?

Sadly I can't really play anything. I was learning to play an instrument in my school times but sadly had to stop because of academic pressures.

It’s never too late to start!

My 18 year old son just bought himself a ukelele and he’s learning from YouTube videos. I have played piano for 47 years. I also play flute and clarinet. My daughter plays flute, piano, clarinet, violin, guitar, and bass guitar. My youngest son is a drummer.

I learned the recorder in grade three, and the trombone in high school. I'm sure I'd fail hard if I tried to play either now. I've always wanted to learn the saw and the theremin.

[@1192954,MsAlaineEYes] I want to learn throat singing too!
[@1999,Dolimyte] I first learned about it.....on Big Bang Theory; actually; the Theremin also. What an educational sitcom!!!

[@1192954,MsAlaineEYes] indeed. Some of the things Sheldon said really stuck in my head, even if he was being obnoxious while saying it, or maybe because of it.🤔
I pick at the piano, kalimba, bongos and the djembe.

I can play the celtic harp (a little, many say I "play well" but I know better; I'm still beginning to learn), tambourine, claves, shakers, etc. My instrument is my voice. I sing.

I LOVE the cello and flute but I sing with my instrument and neither, especially the flute, lends itself to my voice.

[@2096,caesar7] Cool! I recently played along with all of Marillion's "Misplaced Childhood" to stay in shape for upcoming gigs.

[@329500,uncalled4] Love that album and played along with it. I am a big fan and idolize Bill Bruford. So if you master him, you can play anything

Speaking about another matter.....Ian Mosley is great! Saw them In Toronto a few years ago. Hogarth is a great show man ....but still he is not Fish

Drums, primarily. I've had to max out my limited backing vocals over the past few years, and when I write songs, it's usually on piano or guitar. I can fool people into thinking I'm good. BTW the drummer for the Black Crowes didn't pick up the sticks until he was 21....and he did just fine for himself.

[@2096,caesar7] an extent. But that's like saying that all you need to do on guitar is learn the basics and barre chords. You'll do ok, but you won't have much of a vocabulary.

[@329500,uncalled4] I realize that you can progress from there but it's a good start.

[@2096,caesar7] Agreed. Lots of people who are great at other instruments started on drums, from Steve Perry to Eddie Van Halen. I think it's because that drums affords one a basic rhythmic sense along with 4-way coordination. For me, it's 5-way when I have to sing and play!

I play the guitar and bass guitar.
This is Annie the Spoon Lady; she lives in Ashville, NC. This is one of my favorite songs of her's. Ever want to play the spoons?????
