I am amazed at musically talented people. Tell us if you have ever played any musical instruments well.

I played trombone in Jr high... Sigh

Drums....still do. Played throughout the 80's on the USO circuit and was in a band that was warm up acts for Katrina and the Waves, Quiet Riot and Inxs. That got me though college financially. Kept playing throughout the 90's, but in that time frame, if you were 30 plus years old, you just weren't going to "make" it. So, I settled down, got a steady government job...really glad I kept after my college degree as it paid off. Played in church bands for a little, but my heavy rock style just didn't agree with the congregation. I am who I am!!!! But, the daughter is now taking up percussion and I've been schooling her on all things drums. I know there are other musicians in my neck of the woods that just want to keep playing and can still play, but don't. I'd love to try and get another band together and maybe play one weekend a month and just do 70-90's tunes. Maybe some day.

Nope, and not for trying...


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

My instrument is my voice, and has been for a couple decades now. I can cover James Labrie, Miles Kennedy, Geoff Tate, to name a few.

I think that people who can make a lifetime hobby of playing an instrument and are always "trying to get better" are very rewarded for doing so. I'm similar to Schmoe in that I played drums in club bands in my 20s and 30s, did the church thing, and have played in public sporadically over the last decade and a half.

The thing is I can lose myself in practicing, doodling around, or performing...which is a great thing for your psyche. There are ways to "make it" on a personal level that are just as rewarding as a regular gig. I recently re-upped with friend I hadn't seen in several years and he wants to play again...so the cycle starts over again with the music and the friendship.

I am amazingly musically gifted with boundless talent, the more beers I have the better I get.
This is obvious and undeniable.
But get this, ALL my friends take quite the opposite view, do think it's jealousy?, or am I really in a minority of one in my opinion of my ability?.

Claud.

Bass guitar and trumpet/cornet for many years, and still today. I doubt that I will ever give up.
