I'm a singer, and have a bunch of instruments that I can't really play very well at all. Oh, and I have a theremin. It's less exciting than it sounds.

I sing. I sing lots. I sing opera and other stuff. And I can play silly percussion and I'm going to learn the ukulele and, did I mention, I sing?

I play guitar, drums, bass, and mandolin. I don't like playing the mandolin; I'm not sure why I play it. I also can fake playing drumkit using a Roland HandSonic and a couple of foot pedals, a setup I'd be keen to use in an improv or jamming context.

I can sort of sing (bass/baritone) and sort of play acoustic guitar.

My first word of advice is this: say yes. In fact, say yes as often as you can. Saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to new experiences, and new experiences will lead to knowledge and wisdom.

I can play the harmonica and I have a really awesome bass harmonica that I haven't yet learned to play well.

But it is so cool.

I sing. I am pretty rusty but I can also play the violin.

Josh Gill is a badass drummer. Plus he can play the saw and sing well too.

I sing alto. Untrained, but I can carry a tune. I actually sang a hymn on stage by myself, acapella, for "The Carpetbaggers Children" earlier this year.

I also still have my tenor sax from my high school & UT Longhorn Band days, but I'm sure it would make a mournful sound if I tried to play it again. Not because of my playing; it would actually be in mourning.

I love music, but I really can't do any of these anymore.

Trumpet/Cornet - lost the embouchure
Baritone Horn - lost the embouchure
Piano - minimal; have to learn the sequencing - can't jam
Classical Guitar - no callouses; hurts to play
Voice - beginner; was taking lessons to learn to improvise-sing in different voices. Very fun, but since the lessons have stopped, I fear I've slid back to where I was in the beginning.

However, I can probably play silly music:
Kazoo
Triangle
Egg Shaker
Bike Horn
Call Bell
Cow Bell
Hand Bell
etc.
