    Anybody else play musical instruments? I play guitar , banjo ,12 string guitar , dobro , fiddle (a little bit) and bass. I can do a little bit with a piano too. I'm really wanting a mandolin. Has anyone seen any good deals on a mandolin lately? F or A type i'm not really picky , but I would prefer something higher end. Don't worry I won't get sticker shock.

    I play the alto saxaphone and am trying to teach myself how to play the piano. SO far I can play oh susanna, the entertainer, amazing grace(first thing i ever played), and when the saints come marching in on the piano.

    Are you learning chords or playing by note? My piano playing keeps getting worse and worse because I'm starting to get a little bit of arthritis in my hands from playing guitar.

    I play the violin (been playing for six years now) and learning to play the guitar so any advice would be very helpful. [​IMG]

    I played the violin for a short time when I was a kid, and played the cello for many years.

    I used to play the viola, and I am trying to play by ear one the piano, so I'm not really sure what notes I'm pressing.... [​IMG]

    My wife says I am musical in the morning but ofr some reason I don't think that is what you had in mind...

    I used to play tuba. Tried the piano...hated it.
