Do you play any instruments? What songs/styles have you learned to play recently?

I'm a drummer - and drum teacher. I just finished a jazz book I've been working on for a while, and don't know what to work on. I'll probably just continue to learn songs, and wait till September for lessons to learn new styles.

I play guitar (primarily electric) and trumpet. I've played trumpet for like 6 years now, just because of school. I don't really play at all outside of school, but I've become pretty good. I took up guitar for fun about 3 years ago. I play quite frequently, but I don't take it particularly seriously. I just like to play the music I personally enjoy.

I'm a saxophone player. Played alto for 4 years then I switched to tenor and haven't touched an alto since. Played for nearly 9 years now. I bought a soprano last year and that's fun to mess around on. I plan to play for most of my life, I love doing it. When I get older and have money to spend, I plan to buy an Eppelsheim Bass Sax (for those unaware, about a 25 Grand investment). Instead of buying a cool car in my midlife crisis, that's what I'll do :P
I played whatever we were told to in band, and when I play for myself I play solely jazz. I would like to maybe join a prog band someday playing sax.

I am a music education major in college. I have been in band since the 4th grade so music is part of my life. I can play euphonium, trumpet, trombone, tuba, french horn, and a little bit of piano.

The euphonium I own:

I've played trumpet for 6 years in concert band, jazz band, and pep band. Next year I'll be leading my school's pep band, which I'm really excited for. I approach my playing with the goal to go out on stage and put on a good show, because that's what I get enjoyment from. It means a little less practice time, but the other trumpet players in my section are really good about understanding when we need to have an extra sectional to get something down, and it seems easier to keep them motivated with that goal. The way my schedule is looking for next year I think I'll have to end up choosing between jazz band and wind ensemble, which really sucks. I'm leaning towards jazz band but I think scheduling may end up choosing for me. :(

Same boat here. I teach a high school drum line in the area and it is a blast. I will be headed back up to school in the fall and can't wait to start getting lessons again. There is going to be a drum set ensemble course that Music minors are allowed to be in and I am pumped. Seven drum sets!

I'm a guitarist. I play bits of everything (nothing as well as I would like :P). I've been playing about 4 1/2 years, and really enjoy it. I tend to be far too self indulgent when I play, but I've been getting better about it. I'm HOPEFULLY going to be playing in Jazz Band next year, my first time ever really playing in a group. Right now I'm going to be working on Civeta Day by the The Number 12, Ebon Coast by Andy Mckee, and some Rush (not totally sure what yet).

Maybe slap some stuff together of my own, but thats really iffy at this point.

Oh, and Range, fudging LOVE polyrhythmic and polymetric music...interestingly, my first real exposure to them was by a Death Metal group. Then I found out it's primarily rooted in Jazz and Sub-Saharan musics.

Another drummer, I don't take it as serious as I used to but I'll jump on my kit once every couple of days for a practice/learn some new songs/work on rudiments.

Would like to learn some guitar and maybe keyboard again.

I'm working on assassin by Muse at the moment for drums. I just need to get the into down - I can play it fine on double kick, but I'm trying to get it down on single kick too. The fact that it's triplets in 3/4 time doesn't help <_<

Make me the record producer and we're set.

I am also a saxophone player. Since Boros does tenor I'll just stick with alto.

I'm a Singer/Bass player.

I've tried guitar, cant strum to save my life. I can play keyboards but not all that well with both hands.

I've also just completed a course in Music Technology, so I can record/produce/manage a band/mess around with synths, amongst other things.

I started out as a classical singer, now I pretty much do whatever I like the sounds of, as well as original material (I write a lot of song lyrics for some odd reason). As for bass, I'm still pretty new to it, though I do know a few Ska/Metal/Punk songs on it currently.

I play the guitar, have been doing it for about a year and a half now, and some drums, though I don't actually have one of my own. Oh well, a table and some imagination make for a decent substitute :P

Why can't the Big Bang be done by the hand of God?

It could have, but it is next to impossible because it also could have been caused by the flying spaghetti monster, or one of the other infinite number of deity possibilities.
