I play instuments from best to worst in this order: Drums, vocals, guitar, piano/keyboard, bass, violin. Except I haven't played violin since 2nd grade, but I wasn't too bad back then, so if I picked one up I would probably remember some stuff. To bad I don't have a violin and I generally find the instruments annoying They can be nice in some music, but violin alone has way too much treble. This is why I want to find out when the next strings assembly is in my town and plant a bomb in the building to go off in the middle of it. Just kidding. Sort of.

guitar, bass, very little keyboard, and some harmonica.
And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor does He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.”

~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

well seeing as this is a christian GUITAR resource website i would think that most of the ppl in here would either play guitar or r about to start playing the guitar.

Nice job. Let the dead threads RIP.

This negatively affected my tone in ways that I just can't describe.
Then, on a whim, a few years ago I wandered into a Bath and Body Works store at a local mall and picked up some of their gentle foaming anti-bacterial hand cleansers.
The difference in my guitar's sound is so wickedly improved that I no longer feel the need to buy a new amp or pedals or even strings...EVER!
So, it's my belief that tone is in the soap.
Thank you and goodnight.

Guitar. I've always wanted to play an instrument. I walked into a store and a guitar sang to me and I was hooked! It's a difficult instrument to start off but if you have a love for it nothing will stop you!

Guitar - Bass - Keys - Guitar Synth

I've been playing a Fender Jazz bass in church in recent years, but I'm not much of a bass player. And I don't like dragging a keyboard along for just one song.

So a couple of months ago, I got a Roland GR-20 guitar synth and an Epiphone Les Paul Custom (white with gold hardware) to play it with. So far, it's worked great with the worship team. We only have piano and drums along with a few singers, so the wide variety of voices really helps to fatten things up. I find myself still playing bass a lot of the time, but the synth gives a number of bass possibilities. Also, I use a lot of strings, organ, and choral voices. It's a great unit, especially coming through an 18" bass cabinet (fueled by a bass amp head, Peavey unfortunately). I think you could probably put out a match with some of the bass voices.

Guitar. And I can stumble around on the bass a little bit too. Not enough I feel I could play it in front of people, but just sitting around and having fun I can play a little bass.

Guitar all they way. Is there any other instrument?

yes I read out of the Message like most hippies do
www.myspace.com/davidrummelhart for the lighter side
www.myspace.com/ifbutforone for the most heaviest side.
