Drums, the strings section, the brass section, and the woodwind section. But just those.
Drums, keys, violin.
I tried violin.
Not a pretty sight (or sound)!
I’d probably do better with drums or keys.
Piano...and I have one, so no excuse.
Hands down, baritone sax.
I own a couple synths, but I still have to stare for a beat or 2 to remember which pair is B-C and which pair is E-F
Down to becoming a 1 man band..was bass since 80's..tons of work & bands. Then 2015 guitar player quit mid projectm went & got SG & amp then finished the CD.. 2016 singer went to jail..had to sing the rest of dates booked. Record a lot..so learned to drum last few years & finally..wife is not singing for awhile cause of health.
2 weeks ago said..lets do it..the shw must go n...making more music than ever...get them drums on Reaper & away we go. What am digging ..its only about 24 hour process from start to finish.
Pedal steel and piano. Not sure which I wish I could play more.
Clarinet. If I'd been more than a half-wit, I would have said "yes" when the band teacher was selecting new students (6th grade). I wanted Trumpet but they had too many trumpets already. She said, no and I was disappointed enough to walk away, though she offered clarinet.
I can't even make a brass instrument quack like a duck...but I can make musical noises on reeds.
The instrument that started it all for me..
Played through middle school and almost all of high school..
I would love to play it again but I have my hands tied with bass and guitar.
I agree with several already mentioned. I can get by on keyboard (if I have time to practice and prepare) but I'd love to be able to play B3 like Booker T or Vincent Crane or Jimmy Smith. I'd like to be able to perform on sax.....it's a cool but under-used R&R instrument.
But one NOT mentioned (and I'm being VERY serious) is bagpipes. I'd LOVE to be able to play them.
When it all started, I was supposed to be a drummer. My oldest brother was a drummer, we had the gear, and I started taking lessons from the guy who taught him. I never really got it. I admit I did not practice as much or as intently as I was supposed to. But later, when I got the guitar, nobody had to tell me to practice. They had to tell me to turn it down, stop playing that same song, put it away already.
Kenny Aronoff and Max Weinberg are probably my favorite of guys playing now. But when I was in high school, due to the influence of that oldest brother, I was into the jazz guys: Tony Williams, Jack DeJohnette, and especially Elvin Jones.
It would be nice to play drums well, but I would never trade the guitar for drums.
Lap steel is going to be my next instrument to learn.
Rhodes electric piano like 1970s Herbie Hancock.
Piano, harp, maybe saxophone
Interested in bass too!
I started playing fiddle at age 30 and can confirm it's 50 times harder than guitar. But it's a blast. I've been playing 13 years now and love it.
I bought the practice chanter and the whole lesson plan for bagpipes about 20 years ago.
I had high hopes of joining the Shriner's Pipe and Drum corp back then.
Really thought, just piano. That seems to be the truest instrument for learning.
My step daughter majored in music and every student had to major in 'their' instrument, piano and be proficient in a 3rd one.
