When I was a kid I played trombone, took 4 years of piano lessons. In college I "banged" on the drums and tried to "strum" the guitar. 30 years later, for some unknown reason, I have a yearning to play the banjo! What do you want to try playing?

I can't help it, I have an excuse. What was that excuse again?

Piano. 12 years of lessons. I used to be damn good.

Sax. Learned from Bobby Vinton's sax player. I used to be damn good.

Now I can't play shit.

I bought a mandolin recently. Now I just have to make time to learn the chord charts.

I'd really like to learn the banjo.

So are you gonna get one SSJ?

I'd like to play the vocal cords better. The human voice is my favorite instrument but gee whiz it's tough to get halfway decent. I am still working on it. Saxaphone would be second

Wish I had taken piano lessons as a kid instead of the drums.

I stay in a place called "Rooms"....there's a whole chain of them.

Saxaphone or Trumpet, ala Coletrane and Davis.
Exterminate all rational thought.

I used to play the drums in High School but that ended.....I would like to try the congas and learn how to play the guitar.
