Hi!
I have a Squire Strataccoustic guitar
A Epiphone Thunderbird 4-string bass
A LTD EX Explorer 4-string bass
A Yamaha RBX 5-string bass (my first and most loved instrument!)
A Ibanez EB 506 BR 6-string bass
A awfully bad bass amplifier with no brand and about 60 watt (no real use when you love to play bass really, really loud! I've crashed it several times but after a little cool-down-break it's ready to play again)
2 violins that I almost can play
And a shitty Yamaha midi-keybord

I am about to buy a Epiphone SG bass as it is a rock'n'roll classic!

only the piano and the recorder. My grandfather, his father and his cousins all played something. All the instruments now are there, at my grandma's house. the trumpet was used in the Rai (italian television) symphonic orchestra by my grandfather's cousin.
Oh, I forgot my electronic keyboard and my mother's two violins!

Interesting news on the Søren Jensen Grand. Any pictures? Do you happen to have the ID-number from the inside of the instrument? It could tell us something about the age of the model

The site pluckedstringedinstruments.com will show you my collection. The only things not posted are my 2005 Fender Precision Bass, 2005 Indiana Mandolin and 1991 Gibson Les Paul. Typically, I think I will keep it to acoustic instruments only, but I may change my mind later. I'll have a pic up of the Ecuadorian Bandolin as soon as I get some work done on it.

I've recently bought a ukulele but I think I chose the wrong brand cause the sound is crappy. It was cheap though so I'm not surprised. I'm now looking for a better one, any suggestions? Yeah, I play tenor. Thanks!

I think the ones made from wood (not laminate or ply) are better sounding. The best ones are made from mahogany from what I have read about.

Good ones will run a hundred or so (USD) and up to several thousand dollars.

I wasn't aware that there were alto, tenor or baritone Ukes until I looked that up ... the things we learn in our senior years - well, at least in my senior years anyway :lol:.

It sounds like I collect 'em!

I do play guitar as my main instrument, and piano as my secondary instrument.

On piano, I mainly do accompaniment for my singing of songs, mostly Beatles tunes, etc.

I can play Bach's Prelude No. 1 in C Maj (you know, the Ave Maria), a Beethoven Bagatelle in G minor, and a Chopin E minor Prelude.

The rest of it is just figuring things out by ear, and singing. I'm good enough to do a solo gig on piano, tho I never have.

The guitar is where most of my experience lies: in country, rock, blues and jazz. I'd love to play jazz with somebody. The other stuff is getting' kind of old.

I do play some tunes on penny whistle, and flute. That penny whistle sound great thru a mike with a little reverb...

I do play a little banjo, but I pawned my last one.

The violin, or fiddle is something I'm working on. I am not very good. I want to play fiddle tunes.

I got the cello and viola so I could have my own string quartet. I'm going to record an experimental "string quartet" sometime.

I do have an interest in audio & recording. I'm using a Mac with LOGIC, the music & notation program.

I'm a music theory freak, too. Any text on theory, I want it. Especially about modern music.

What kind of jazz do you play? Making music with other musicians is what it is all about for me so much better than playing by yourself.

There's two sides to that coin: other people can ruin music for me, as well.

As I get older, I have less tolerance for idiots who think they can play harmonica.

The best music is produced by personality chemistry. That's 90% of it.

Right now, I'm playing along with Hal Leonard CDs. That's a good way to practice.

I'm also doing solo things. Solo arrangements of standards, like Tenderly and All the Things You are.

Yes, we all know as human beings that it's best to be socially engaged; but it's also OK to be away from all that, or with just one person.

I suppose we are all different but the best times for me was playing trad jazz in the 50s a seven piece line up ‘piano, double bass, drums, banjo/guitar, trumpet, trombone and clarinet.
Also just a trio Piano, Bass and drums this was in clubs and hotels etc, what I was not so fond of was playing in dance bands where you were playing from music scores and it included a lot of pop tunes of the day but it paid well.
I always enjoyed practice but only did about 1hr a day and only just managed to do the tasks that had been set by my teacher so perhaps that explains why I never really progressed to higher things.
"Tenderly" and "All the things you are" both wonderful tunes a lot of the musicals and even tin pan ally produced some simple but everlasting classics you are choosing well.

I forgot to ask in ref to your comment "I got the cello and viola so I could have my own string quartet. I'm going to record an experimental "string quartet" sometime" I assume that you will be playing each instrument and laying one recorded track at a time on top of previous track, this reminds me of when I was learning flute, all I had was a tape recorder but it worked for what I wanted which was to play a flute duo, I would would record 1st flute with a verbal count in such as one two three and then play back and take the 2nd flute part, I realise your project will be much more complicated but it would be good to hear it when finished.

Don't get me wrong, I would love to get together with some good players.

My "string quartet" is probably going to be more random and experimental than skillful. Still, it might be fun to try to make it a real musical thing.

Yes, my mother used to play all those songs on piano. She was good. That's where I got all of that jazz stuff from, only I heard it in the original song form, probably like most of the real jazz players heard it, too, since those were the popular hits of their youth.

The good old days where most homes had a piano, started many people on a musical adventure.
