The ultimate question is....

Is this thing even freakin' playable?


Look how wide the neck is! There's no way my hand would fit around that.

I started out on guitar, started singing seriously a few years later. Eventually moved on to bass, drums, keyboard, ocarina, a bit of harmonica here and there, some banjo now and again.

Gstrings has been mentioned many times, and I love it. I've also started dabbling in electronic music, and I use an app called Caustic 2 to make a lot of neat stuff. I also use Hi-Q MP3 Recorder to take down some quick ideas.

Thanks.

Long ago, before these forums were on the web, we discussed things on the usenet (newsgroups). I went to alt.saxophone and there was a Bob Norton and a Robert Norton already on the board. So rather than use Bobby, Robbie or something that just seems weird to me, I chose the nickname that my sister's business partner called me. He had a nickname for everybody, and he called me "Notes" because I'm a musician.

After so many years on the usenet and web, "Notes" is something that just seems normal now. But if someone other than my sisters former business partner calls me that in person, it does sound a little weird. So I keep "Notes" for the Internet where there may be hundreds of other Bob Nortons participating.

Notes
When the erhu is played properly, it's beautiful, similarly with Mongolian morin khuur. The music of wild horses on the grasslands. However when it comes to me and bowed string instruments, that's another matter....it's not pleasant. LOL. String instruments that I can pluck or strum, are somewhat better for me. Not had a go with the pipa yet though.

My boyfriend tried to teach me guitar but we found out I suffer from a severe case of rhythm deficiency=)
On guitar I can play part of dueling banjos and on bass I can play the theme to peoples court. Thatís about all I can play that's recognizable but I still try.

I play trumpet and guitar. Although I haven't practiced trumpet since a while so it would probably not sound very well.

I learned to play the didgeridoo back in highschool. I practiced for a few years, even learned how to circular breathe on a very limited scale. I'm nothing like the Aboriginal masters, but I have the concept down. My friends wife stayed in Australia and New Zealand for college and she brought one back with her. She was told it was a traditional didge, I absolutely love playing this thing every time I'm over there.

I play a Sterling by MusicMan Ray 35 5 string bass. My favorite music app is MobileSheets, I love having all my chord charts on my SGN 10.1 and not having paper cluttering my house. The ability to link my MP3s to the chord charts seamlessly is great. I can make notes on the charts on the fly. It's really useful for me.

I've got four guitars and a bass guitar. I've got:
BC Rich Mockingbird Bronze Edition (Red)
BC Rich Warlock Mick Thomson ("Starter Kit")
Schecter Gryphon-7 Diamond Series (Transparent Black)
Schecter Hellraiser Tempest (Cherry Red)

I have a lot of fun with Nodebeat and I've been fooling around with FL Studio lately, mostly. Like synthesizing music and they allow for this, even if FL is sometimes buggy

Bass guitar. I own two Ibanez basses (an old, OLD Silver Cadet and another one I don't recall the model number) and a 5-string Douglas WOB-825 bass, along with an early-90s Fender 300C-BXR amp.

I haven't played with anyone in a LONG time, but have been playing Rocksmith on my PS3 using one of the Ibanez's.

Sorry, it's MobileSheets all one word: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zubersoft.mobilesheets&feature=sear ch_result#?t=W10. It's I think $8.00 or $9.00 but well worth it.

Currently I play drums after about 15 years that I never touched them. I have played them about once in a week for last 6-7 months and still feel like I don't play them as good as I did back then. Well, getting better, and that is good.

I do play piano when I visit my parents and would like to have one of my own, but having wife and kids does not only take my money, but time and all extra room from apartment as well. I'm not complaining though..

Guitar (electric and acoustic) was my instrument as a teenager, but I got frustrated because even if I tried so hard, Master of puppets was too fast for me. Gonna get some guitars also, when I get more money, room and time.

I switched from DaTuner to GString per the advice of some of the posters in this thread and I'm glad I did - thanks to all who suggested it.

Looking to change musical direction atm - perhaps Church stuff if I can work out how but...

I'm all informal/amateur and mostly folk and within that mostly Irish dance (jigs, reels, etc) on mandolin/ ("Irish" rather than jazz tuned) tenor banjo (basically GDAE tuned fretted things and I like 5th tunings for melody). Dabble a bit on guitar, did play a bit of Morris dance on D/G melodeon, have a 5 string electric bass...

App wise. I do prefer to have a clip on tuner but I'm quite happy with Da Tuner as a standby.

Bass guitar. I've got a 4-string Peavy Fury, a 5-string Yamaha (sounds awesome) and an Ibanez Flying-V from when they were being sued by Gibson (mid to late 70's?).

No apps yet, but I might try one of the tuners mentioned. I've got a nice BOSS tuner that's been working great for years.

That sounds like cruelty to musical instruments but maybe they like it?

I must admit to having mixed feelings about the sax family. Sometimes they seem that bit to brazen to me although perhaps you would argue that is their strength?

On balance (although neither are really used in my folk world), I probably prefer it's relation the clarinet, eg.

My first instrument was drums (School band with limited rental instruments) then the tenor sax player moved. I've been doing sax ever since. I added flute, guitar, bass, wind synthesizer and keyboard synth since and even learned how to sing.

I make a living playing music and writing software to help other musicians make their own backing tracks. No regrets. I'm living life on my own terms, have no boss to answer to, and live by my own good decisions and learn from the bad ones.

Getting on stage and playing music to an appreciative audience is my second favorite thing to do (it's a family forum so I can't tell you what's first <grin>)

I do have an 5 string electric bass but I struggle with it. 1) my head still wants to play melody and b) I find the way notes sustain hard to cope with. Needs a technique I've not found yet. Stilll trying to think of a bass (I think in this case double bass) line I really like. Can you do anything with Fever?

Sure, Pretty simple stuff. I prefer to play alongside something like a David Gilmore lead guitar from lets say Comfortably Numb Jazz doesn't do it for me,

I've gone through musical stages on what I like to listen to best. Now I just listen to a bit of everything from blues to classical (Romantic period and forward).

Favorite sax players are Stan Getz, Stanley Turrentine, Paul Desmond, Houston Person, Ben Webster, Zoot Sims, Earl Bostic, and I appreciate hundreds of others. It's actually hard to stop the list of favorite sax players.

IMHO sax and flat top acoustic guitar don't go together easily, it takes two talented people to make that work. But listen to Stan Getz with Louis Bonfa or Charlie Byrd and you can hear it works quite well with the right people. But if I sit in with some flat top pickers, I generally choose to get the flute out, as it is much easier to blend with that instrument.

I've been making my living playing music since I graduated high school, and have no regrets.

On fitting together, an album I really like is "The Irish Concertina" by Noeal Hill most of the tracks have piano accompaniment. Here is is with Charlie Lennon on piano. Noel Hill on Concertina - YouTube
