Any musicians among us?

I was just wondering if anyone supplied there own
BBQ and beer powered entertainment systems.
If so ....what instrument do you play, and what is
your favorite song at the moment?
Out of respect for Canny.....no banjo jokes please!

Maybe this should have been a poll.

Darn right, no banjo jokes

I play tenor banjo, tenor guitar, and mandola. There are a few on the forum that have heard me play at one of our unit rallies.

I play guitar, and I just picked up a banjo to learn. Maybe by the time I'm John's age I'll be brave enough to play in front of others - right now I keep it to myself

Thumbs up

Yep since I was 7 - but my instrument would put our weight restrictions way over the limit and a bit much to drag out to a BBQ

No not a Tuba (although tried my hand at that when I was in HS)

Could it be why some of my posts are so long.......just love those keyes!

I play saxophone, guitar and piano.

I haven't picked up a sax in many years ... my lip is probably shot ... but the sax was my first instrument. Played 'em all from bass to soprano. The bari was my favorite.

Just sold my electric guitar .. which was a gift from Ernie Ball ... maybe I'll pick up an acoustic for my travels. I'm pretty rusty.

Since we will be fulltiming soon ... I won't be able to take my beloved piano with me ... so we're gonna store it ... I'll never find another one like it. I've been eyeing one of those 76 weighted-key portables by Yamaha.

Gonna have to do something .. as piano is my strongest instrument ... but if I don't play every day ... I get lousy real quick.

Favorite song at the moment ... Duke Ellington's "I'm Just a Lucky So and So" ... performed by Mose Allison.

Not since fourth grade

The teacher took my tonette away and sat me in the corner. I haven't played a lick of music since.

I play for the mortgage....

Guitar, dulcimer, keys, percussion and more. I am part of an acoustic group www.humphreyandhartman.com. We also own a sound company www.precisionsound.biz so if the barbeque in question needs to be recorded or needs to be loud enough to reach the next county, we can do that for a small fee

We don't discuss playing the banjo in polite company but it has been known to happen after a few beers - still trying to figure out how to tune it, though.....

For me playing music and camping go hand in hand. And I
don't use up propane or the batts. But I was curious to know
if much music is played where you camp or if it is not tolerated
I don't mean blasting a stereo, I mean pickin'
I am surprized that someone didn't say that bringing
a Honda generator and a sound system would be more
efficient than bringing a musician. ( and you could turn the Honda off).

I love to pick ! I play guitar, bass, and sing some too.
I used to play a little banjo, still have a 1974 Gibson Mastertone RB250. Also have about 2 dozen fine guitars, from old Fenders Martins, to PRS.

Wouldn't it be fun to camp and pick together sometime !!!
I might not be as good as Alan, but I'd try to keep up

Hi Porky;

I gave up my piano - For a Roland -weighted - would never have made the switch if they did not feel like "real" Keyes.

I wanted to get into writing my own music way back when - with my Mac and good old Midi - but of course work always came first and then the outdoor sports.

I have always wanted to play the violin and actually rented one twice - picked up real quick but the dogs just could not sing in tune - and it was getting quite anoying - Peter couldn't make up his mind which one was more than the other.

We could always count on a sing song - when crusing the locks up here on the Trent and Rideau systems (Boating)

So I can't wait till we hit the rallys and other fun functions - maybe I will try my hand at playing the guitar....Hey Don maybe you could teach me

Sharon

Hey Porky,
Most of my camping is at Music Festivals. It's noisey
but exciting. Heres the thing....Most of the festivals that
I go to are $55 for three days with camping included. It's
kinda like getting the music for free. There are some electric sites and water spouts but it's basically boondocking.
I am in a camping club called The Grillbillies. We camp around a huge tent and do the potluck thing.
After that, most of the campgrounds seem like parking lots full of strangers.

Yup !

Although I don't play much anymore (but would like to) my instruments are baritone horn, guitar, and especially percussion (drums).
I have had the occassion to play in the WBCCI Band and WBCCI Dance Band a couple of times. That was great fun for me!
I've been thinking, lately, the WBCCI Band & Dance Band program had to start somewhere: right? Well, now as we are getting more 'baby boomers' in the ranks...how about an old-time rock&roll band (or at least some jam sessions) at International?
I'm thinking music from the 50's thru the 60's.
'Think there would be some interest?
