What instrument do you play? If you don't play any, what is your favorite to listen to?

I currently play the Tuba, but I really want to play the Bari Sax.

Bass guitar is my usual instrument (for well over 30 years now.) I can also play a bit of drums and some rudimentary keyboard. At school, I played trombone in the orchestra, but I've not played another wind instrument since then.

I enjoy playing the alto clarinet so much that I made it my username.

I play a bit of ukulele, tin whistle, and percussion as well.

Play piano/keyboard professionally (although not currently gigging for money, I had a just few gigs once and that's it - maybe 5-6 paid concerts total)
Play Ukulele / Banjo Ukulele also very well (gigged once professionally and some concerts for fun)

Right now I don't play in a band at all or perform anywhere. Just play at home, for fun :)

I play electric/acoustic guitar, electric bass, some keyboards (since I was a baby), a tiny bit of drums and harmonica, tambourine, and I can sing. I bought a violin and a recorder, but haven't really gotten around to learning them yet.

I used to play clarinet in school band, but dropped out after two years =(

I think I want to get an accordion or concertina next, but they're kind of expensive. Maybe a Melodica...they don't sound quite the same, but they're pretty darn cheap.

I play the flute and piccolo, but I'd really like to learn how to play the trumpet.

I play radios, tv sets and cd players the best. but I tool around on a baritone uke, classical guitar played most un-classically [more an informal folk style], and Wurlitzer-emulation home organ, with basic chords. in jr/sr. high school and college I played contrabass clarinet and bass tuba, sometimes percussion.

I have a flamenco guitar, and I haven't bothered to learn how to play it properly yet, so I usually just strum it with a very soft pick (nylon, 0.60mm). I know it's wrong, but I really like the way it sounds.

could one day you post your organ performances here? organ is my #1 fave instrument, the king of the instruments AFAIC.

can you tell me how easy it was to learn that embouchure? I struggled with it for weeks and ultimately failed.

I also have a piccolo banjo. It's the size of a uke, but tuned one octave higher, and with one more string.
