You're in good company Seayaker, just saw Bill Staines and man does he play a beautiful guitar.

As for me: Guitar. A little harmonica, a little dulcimer.

My only musical regret: Wisht I'd had piano lessons when I was a youngun.

But I can really wail on the kazoo.

Fiddle. I'm getting more time to practise now I'm retired.

Also, Mandolin, Octave Mandolin, and Short Scale Tenor Banjo, but it may be some time before they appear in public.

All left handed of course.

I've been playing banjo for most of my life since the sixties. I've now got 4 five strings:
An open back Lo Gordon (Cedar Mountain) banjo with wooden tone ring (the Dwight Diller model) with a lovely mellow woody tone.
A. open back Bart Reiter Tubaphone with a brighter pleasant tone, lots of volume.
A Deering Sierra bluegrass banjo with resonator that I was lucky to find in an auction for a lot less than I would otherwise have had to pay. Very loud bluegrassy sound, but can be played much quieter. Too heavy for sessions, though.
An El Cheapo Korean banjo that I can dismantle to put in my luggage for skiing holidays.

Other instruments:
2 fiddles (standard and cross tuned) that I've been trying to play Old Time music on for 10 years with mixed success. I get it out in sessions when I'm the best Old Time fiddler there (very rare).

A cheap electric fiddle which I can practice quietly on after midnight without plugging it in.

An old Yamaha FG340 guitar that I occasionally pick up and strum.

A Roumanian flat mandolin that I've recently replaced the tailpiece on. I find that picking it is harder than bowing the fiddle for the same tunes.

A John Grey banjulele that mostly hangs on the wall.

A few blues harmonicas in different keys that I used to play much more than I do now.

A couple of whistles (half a dozen old irish tunes I've known for years)

A couple of Jaw's harps.

A stone jug and couple of kazoos - you never know when they'll come in handy!

Cheers
Ray

My main instruments are flute, alto sax and irish whistle and I've also just recently started singing publicly.

I've dabbled a bit with instruments such as the piano, guitar, ukulele, darbuka drum, bodhran and shaker egg.

I'd love to have a go one day at the piano accordian, violin, mandolin, banjo and djembe drum as well just to name a few, there are just too many instruments that I want to learn!

I heard John Thompson play the concertina at this years National Folk Festival in Canberra in a session, and it's the first time that I thought I might like to have a crack at the concertina as well. There's just so many inspiring musicians out there!

Primarily guitar, though I'd kill for a new bass gig. Still play some mandolin and banjo. Did a djembe gig a while back but I'm really no drummer of any matter. One of my bands just got (finally!) a new keys player so I no longer need to drag the keys around with me and I can concentrate on guitars.

Still collecting guitars and stuff. Since I last posted 8 years ago, there have been many guitars come and go, but some have stuck with me like a '79 Beneteau flattop, a House cutaway flattop, Godin Acousticaster, and several solidbody electrics (Godin Belmont, Tele Aerodyne, Godin LG, Tele Thinline). Also picked up a Yamaha digital piano, several amps (Traynor YCV50, YCV20, AM150 acoustic amp, etc), a nice djembe, a cheap baritone uke, and 2 cheap but nice banjos from GoldTone (BG250, IT250). Gone are the Washburn banjo, a Fender amp or two, an electric guitar or two, the old upright piano, some Remo djembes...

The core useful collection gets better at the expense of the lesser stuff which is as it should be.

And don't get me started on books, mostly instructional stuff and tune books.

Peace, Mooh.

Appalachian dulcimer
Hammered dulcimer (inactive currently)
Fiddle
Harmonicas

I just play guitar (standard and baritone). I have 11. I think. (Three or four are for sale.) I have a mandolin, but only know a few chords to fool around with.

Kris plays mostly fiddle, but is OK on upright bass, and can do basic chording on guitar. She took classical piano lessons all through childhood, then walked away from it after college. But she just bought one of those newer electronical pianos with more computing power and memory than my first few computers, and is getting back into it.

All kidding aside, Kendall's Taylor has more guts than any other Taylor I've heard, and than many Martins. But if I had his 12-string I'd go for long periods without playing the six at all.

I'm glad this didn't ask what you play well. I play strings and more recently percussion:

Strings:

Guitar (mostly slide, mostly blues)
Mandolin
Banjo
Oud

Percussion:

Darbuka
Riqq
Dholak
Madal
Bongos

I've also got a fiddle which is an effective torture instrument in my hands. Also Tabla drums, but I underestimated the skill needed to play these well! I may come back to them one day. Riqq is a new instrument to me, but I'm amazed how versatile they are. The Oud is also fairly new, but I love how expressive and moody they are. Banjo though is the "desert island" instrument for me...

Leaving the voice aside, I started on lagerphone and progressed to anglo, on which I can make a nuisance of myself in several genres. In Flying Pieman I was frequently observed doing various imitations on mouth organs (OK, "harmonicas") and single row melodeons, which I like for their fruitiness but they take up a bit of room in the car. The bandoneons have a similar fruitiness and handle like the anglo (in one case) and a piano (in the other) but they take up even more room in the car.

I've inherited a 5 string banjo and a fiddle, so I'll probably annoy people with those in a while. The daughters have made good use of the flute, piano and recorders I had acquired over the years and are now rather good; much better on them than I could ever be.

Cheers, Rowan

Sorry, this one above, listed as "Guest" was me on another machine, not logged in properly:

Hi! I'm new to Mudcat, too, though fairly mature in chronological age.

I've been playing the guitar for about 18 months. I still tend to let nerves get the better of me on the very few occasions I've played with an audience. I'm not even on the rough side of OK yet!

I can knock out a few recognisable tunes on the whistle, and I've just ordered an octave mandolin that I was hoping to get in July but which I've been told repeatedly by sources other than the maker that Christmas is more likely :-(

Things with black and white keys or buttons flummox me.


My guitars are:

- a "cheap" Martin DCX1, ie, Mexican made with HPL back and sides and spruce top, but it sounds great and is easy to play. I must have tried out 30 guitars when I bought it, and it suited me better than even some instruments costing almost twice as much. Had it about 8 months.

- An Epiphone Les Paul "Black Beauty" bought second-hand off Ebay 18 months ago. Really nice to play and a bargain too.

Hmmmmmmm???

Okay, first of all I play acoustic guitars/resonators... Tenors, 6 strings, 12 strings...

The I play a "Lowebow" invented and made by John Lowe himself... It is a 4 stringed instrument with two dowel rods for a neck and a cigar box for the body... It has 3 homemade pickups inside the cigar box and is played with a combination of fingering and slide and make an incfrexdible amount of music and really surprises people when they first hear it...

Then I play a custom electric guitar that is made froma slab of wood and a neck... It's a 5 string and has two handwound pickups and is a prototype for the "Honeydripper" guitar that was made especially for the movie by the same name... It is awesome...

Then when I am in the mood and have a little extra energy I'll set up a drum set in front of me and play snare/highhat/bass with my feet while playing any of the above...

Thinkin' seriously about going to Blues Week this summer and taking Phil Wiggins beginner harmonica class so I can add that into the mix... Still 50/50 on that...

Pardon me resurrecting such an old thread. As I'm fairly new as a participant (former lurker), I've been rummaging through the dusty attic of Mudcat, and found this topic.

Anyway, I play a lot of instruments badly and a few averagely. I'm no virtuoso at any.

In descending order of competence...

Not too bad at mandolin, mandola, tenor banjo (short scale - smallish hands)

Sort of on the rough side of ok at guitar (after 35+ years of playing it), bass guitar, tin whistle and bodhran.

Pretty dodgy at fiddle, harmonica and bouzouki, but have still been known to play them in a session!

Well I'm playing a Guild D40 from 1971, Admira Classic nylon strung, Tanglewood 12 string, Fender Stratocaster (a real one) Windsor President 5 string banjo, 8 and 12 sting mandolins and a fiddle which I am currently learning to play.

Penny whistle, guitar, mountain dulcimer (well, five tunes), six-hole flute (slowly), and I can play "Yankee Doodle" on a harp.
