I won't play "Horse with No Name" or "Hotel California."
I'm too lazy to try different tunings.
I can't imagine myself playing anything by yngwie malmsteen, or by eric Johnson. but not because of preference.
Rap and extreme metal (like when there’s no melody and the vocals are basically screaming). It’s just taste. I’m not right and no one is wrong. I just don’t care for certain styles.
I don’t have what it takes to play this....
We once had a band member who some day came along with an old beaten rusty sousaphone. He dragged this monstrosity around even that he could barely play three notes (all of them wrong of course). It was his band mascot. One day he even took this heap of junk to a gig but forgot the bag with his blues harps - this was when the band broke up.
I'm not good enough to refuse to play any sort of music. I don't play jazz or metal cos I don't know how. Having said that if I was shown I could and would.
As for instruments, I like to think I can knock out a tune on anything. I'm a jammer, if there was nothing to play with I'd clap along.
Let's see.... I don't play rock, metal, or pop. I don't play pointy guitars and I don't use modelers or solid state amps.
25-30 years ago I played rock, metal and pop. Despised country. Played pointy guitars with Floyd Rose tremolos and used solid state preamps and power amps with rack effects.
What I do now I consider age appropriate just like what I did then. I don't consider myself narrow minded just trying to balance the line between realistic and ridiculous.
It's kinda pointless at my age for me to still be jamming Ratt songs out in the garage when there isn't a musician within a hundred miles who has the slightest idea how to play along let alone sing it.
Music- Bro Country is too far
Amp- Anything Peavey is too far
Guitar- Anything with a Floyd Rose or locking nut.
Danny Boy, won’t play it, period.
I wouldn't use a double-neck. Too heavy and everything is in the wrong place - neck too high or too low.
But mainly just too heavy.
Flight of the Bumblebees on a Tuba. I admit it can be riveting at a recital but its just not for me.
Yeah, I’ve played one. Yes, it freaking rocks.
I would proudly play accordion if I were able. Not in a um-pah band... but in an Americana sort of way. I’ve been blown away by some accordion tones I’ve heard live.
Oddly enough, cookie monster metal and any jazz ensemble. I like my sound to have a melody and language, to tell a story both in lyrics and sound.
As for instruments? I secretly wish I could play everything, but only have the ability to play piano and guitar at a lack-luster skill-set. I guess it would be the accordian that I would never attempt...just a waste of design to me.
My refusal would be playing a tambourine live, esp if it involved hitting it on my hip.
I draw the line at The Twist. Just ain't going to happen.
What if you're able to wear those white knee-high go-go boots, while rockin' that tambo?
I am soooo focused these days, that if it ain't blues/blues-rock, I don't want to hear it or even think about it. I have my guitars, bongos, tambourine and Native American flutes, so I really have no desire to touch any instrument other than mine, except for some Gibson acoustics that I cherish, but probably never own.
Yup, turn off that dang iPod and get off my mountain.
I will not play with a second guitarist nor a keyboard player. 3-piece is my passion, and people have tried to change my mind about this. Those people can start their own bands.
