My husband is a drummer and I a singer. I sang with his band for years. We played all types of music. Colleges Golf Clubs Weddings Parties. The smoke in the Bars got to us. We no longer have a band. And drums are not easy to travel. We do love music, singing and dancing.

I used to play the quitar, still have it. I pretty much put it aside. I busted my wrist up real bad, along with some fingers. Made it hard to play. Just got tired of having to take a pain pill before and after. I let my two year old pick on it, as well as bang on the piano, drums and harmonica. He has a few other insruments as well.

Talking pickin' little

Always loved the sound of a guitar, especially acoustic, finally after retiring for the second time I started trying to learn to play one. Wish I had started a long time ago, but enjoy jam sessions mostly country or bluegrass which can be found at most campgrounds. Really like my Blueridge.

It's never too late...and you have to be happy at whatever ability level you have...just enjoy that you are making music. To me it has always been a blessing to be able to play. It keeps your mind and heart in a good place.

I've played rhythm guitar and vocals in a small band for 8 years. I have two Takamine accoustic/electric Santa Fe's, a '72 Strat and a 12 string rigged up to make a better sound through the PA. We've played in a lot of bars...seen lots of beverage-induced behavior, and had some great fun with the crowds. Started out as a "Tuesday Night Tractor Pull" where we all sat around and traded songs we knew or liked. I contend that the bar owners don't pay us to play...they pay us to schlepp all the equipment around. Sometimes it feels like working for United Van Lines. We've played (for the Az. streamers who might know these places) The Bird Cage in Prescott, The Alamo in Fountain Hills, AuntChiladas at Squaw Peak, ASU stadium for the Special Olympic participants. Did a gig in Wadell, BFE for a bunch of people who wondered out loud what the heck a piccollo player was doing in the group...she plays the flute. Ergo, we do about half covers and half our own songs. From Tull (flautist extraordinaire) to Dave Matthews, Stevie Ray Vaughn to Toad The Wet Sprocket. Did I mention Los Lonely Boys, The Doors, Moody Blues, and Bob Marley? Anyway, I enjoy sitting around and playing music with anybody. There are far better players than me, but I try to hit the right chord whenever possible. I'd be at the Four Corners Unit Rally, but had to do a C-section on the belly pan of the trailer today. Is there an astringent recommended for mouse droppings in nasty alumicuts?

I carry an acoustic with most of the time. A little 3/4 size is just right to keep in the trailer. My preferred and most proficient in electric bass. All self taught. Did the saxophone thing in school.

alvarez yairi signature dreadnought
hammered dulcimer
harmonica

long for bango and mandolin (fat chance!)

had 8 years of piano which i hated but unfortunately was good at 3rd grade and all i wanted was guitar lessons *sigh* now i'm jsut self-taught and have never been able to strum much. a picker by nature.

haven't been able to play much at all the last few years due to some physical problems.

but we have an airstream! imagine an airforums member who actually has an airstream. wouldn't that surprise some at wally world.
