I only play piano and sing, and my piano is pretty mediocre. I had lessons when I was little but had no interest, I only wanted to sing, a year after lesson money ran out I suddenly really wanted to play piano. Figures. Now I'm working on it by myself.
Well, glad to know a fellow fan of Amanda. She is a truly original artist, and so passionate about her songs. I think she is the best by far of any modern songwriter. She is totally under appreciated. :)
I've been a guitarist for almost 20 years. Besides that I love playing drums, piano, bass, and I do some drum machine and synth programming as well. I've got some stuff online, and if you are curious I can give you the locations.
Within the last month I left my old band, Late Night Zero, a horror punk band much like the Misfits. It wasn't really my taste in music, but it was a chance to tour the east coast and have some fun in face paint. I really enjoyed playing up my character. It was a fun ride. Now I'm just back to writing my own stuff at home. I would love to do collaborations with anyone interested.
I played piano (hated it as I was forced to be taught by my father for an hour a day, 7 days a week, and 6AM) and flute. Completely forgot how to play both of them now, and I play guitar. I just bought a brand new Taylor acoustic electric, and I have a Godin electric.
