So, do we have any Browncoats here that are musicians on the side? What instrument do you play? What gear? Are you in any bands? What do you play?

Me, I've been a guitarist for 7 years now. I play a Gibson SG Standard through an Orange Rocker 30 combo amp. I was in hard rock bands in high school and have been in several during college as well, including a pop-rock band and a Rage Against the Machine cover band.

Anyone else?

I have been playing guitar for about 20 years, I think.

My favorite guitar is a 1979 Les Paul Custom, and I play through a Marshall Stack. I also have three other guitars.

Mostly play metal/rock, and classical. Strange combo, I know, but I listen to mostly metal, and I like the technicallity of classical.

I play mostly with some friends who also mess around on guitar, drums, and the like. If we could only find someone to play bass!

Acoustic guitar. Very badly. I can bang out a few ballads. By the way - Irish ballads? Very, very depressing. Really.

I actually just started to learn acoustic guitar!
I'm at the point where I pretty much can change swiftly between the easy chords (the standard ones, A,C,D,E,F,G and some other ones), wich means I can (kind of) play the Ballad of Serenity, wich is really cool! And some other songs I can play as well of course. But still very much learning! :-)
I'm learning on, well, a crap guitar, and I'm thinking of buying a more expensive one. (think between 400 and 450 dollars), but really have no clue wich guitar to buy. Any recommendations? :-)

I'm a choral singer . Kind of a far cry from what you were looking for, no?

How do I delete a comment that was posted twice by accident? (I'm not sure how it happened -- I only clicked the button once.)

Ummm... heres the thing, I have a guitar, piano, violin, Irish flute, and a tin whistle. I can't play a one. I can make them all make noise... sort of... mostly I collect them for when my friends come for a visit. They all play at least one of them! Oh the shindigs we have!

Orcblaster, look into an Epiphone acoustic. Not sure of the exact price but they're a really good quality guitar for what you pay for them.

I think singing counts!

Let's see. I play flute. I was actually a Music Performance Major for 2 years. I also have a collection of flutes: recorders, tin whistles, a crystal flute, etc.

I play guitar. I have a baby Taylor accoustic and an Alvarez electric. I was in a band in college, but now I lead a youth praise band at my church, which is a lot of fun.

I also sing, both classically and not so much. I have sang in professional choirs in the past, but right now I'm just working with my little praise band.

Oh, and I play handbells. I love it, it's so much fun.

And that's me!

yeah, i was a drummer in rocks bands back in the day... now i play acoustic guitars just to entertain myself mostly... right now i've got a couple of Taylors - a 714 six string, a 355 12 string, also a Guild 6 string and an old D-45 Gibson.... and a couple of Dobros... an old square neck and a round neck that is a lot of fun if you like bottle neck slide....

my younger brother picked up the drums a few years ago and i still keep in practice on his Pearls... he also has steel drums that are very nice to play....

Singing totally counts. As far as me, I'm a guitarist. been playing for about five years, but I randomly take time off, but I can't shake the instrument. I'm in a rock band, been around for about three years. Since I'm poor, I just have a regular ol' Fender Strat, that my dad bought for me years ago, and some other handy music makers. Not profecient, though.

Yo, I play harmonica & guitar, mostly just harp kind of guitar. I've been playing harp for 14 years & toured the west coast professionally with bands for about 2 years. I don't play for pay no more just for fun these days. Although I'm playing the Flowmotion Summer Meltdown in Darrington,WA with some old friends from the band Ashbury Park this weekend.(sorry for the shameless promo)
