Kuroi, if you are into composing, take a look at this website.

If you can apply modal thinking and scales into your discovery of a new tune, you will find it much easier to find something that sounds good.


Thanks. :] I'll be sure to check it out.

Bass guitar for about 25 years now - and I still can't play it well.
Used to do mostly progressive rock (think Yes, Rush, King Crimson) and some
jazz. These days I mostly butcher Bach's Cello Suites at 5am so I don't torture my family

My main instrument is flute, then saxophone, then clarinet.

I play flute too, haha but not getting anywhere. Hope to play harp in future, or maybe cello even though I ain't that tall enough. Or maybe oboe, but I know it's very difficult.

Anyone from symphonic bands? Is there any nice pieces to introduce me? :D I like Gallimaufry.

The first instrument I learned was flute. I'm ok at it, but I really went into to band in middle school to learn violin and the band didn't have a string section. So I took flute because it was the smallest instrument.

Now, I'm learning guitar. I love it. If I get really good, I'd like to start a band, but I don't know if I have the time now. Even if I don't get good at guitar, I'd still love to sing in a band. But I have the same school and work schedule issues. I mean, I'm barely sliding by now as it is.

Celtic harp for about a month, and singing (but not for a month. Longer!). Thinking about the Shamisen if I can find one!

Sugoi! I believe that to be true. You must either be really old, or you were handed a guitar as an infant. :-) However I bet you pwn many people.

I've been playing guitar for a couple of years. Not on a regular basis tough. I'm ok at it. I've also been playing the bass now for about one year.

Guitar: Old Ibanez "les paul copy" Sunburst
Bass: Aria, looks like a Jazz standard something

I play Trumpet ( not by choice), piano, guitar ( acoustic, electric, and base), a little bit of violin, and drums.
Finally!

I play the guitar and some piano, and I pick out the rythym in songs, but I don't have a drumset. I also play recorder and glockenspiel (what I picked up from school).
