How many musicians can competently play both guitar and another instrument? 9e.g. piano)
Curious; as we did a survey of our schools music classes and about half of all the students could play guitar and about 90% of them could play something else as well.

Guitar and Harmonica.

Shut up, it's an instrument!

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab
Guitar, bass to back my guitar (but I never record it because of my ****ty bass and lack of mixing knowledge for bass), simple stuff on piano, oh and I can 'play' the programmed drums! XD

I know. Les Paul was the first to play both at the same time. Popularized by Bob Dylan. I can play a little harmonica, and I have a giant chromatic mouth harp. I also play ukulele, banjo, paino, and sing. (pity money is great when you are busking with a ukulele and it is raining xD)

guitar, bass, drums, almost any stringed instrument to an extent. except harp and sitar. both are crazy hard
Right now at my school everyone's bringing their guitar regardless if their in music class or not. They just bring it to look cool, and its incredibly irritating.

OT: I can also play piano.

Its good to see lots of brass like the trumpet and tuba. I picked up a sax once, but I did better with the bagpipes I played whilst drunk.
Video games...nice (:

I play guitar, bass, and the drums.

The reason is becuase it gets easier and easier to understand how music is written with every new insturment you introduce yourself to.

Learning the guitar, then jumping to the piano - You will get to understanding the piano VERY quick if your a guitar player, and learning a bit of the piano will also boost your knowledge of the guitar.

It just works that way, kind of like working your abs

Working your abs = healthier lower back

Standing up straight, and improving your posture = helps tone your abs

Things work in a circle most of the time.

Bass>Ibanez BTB505 - MXR Blowtorch - MXR D.I. - Peavey MaxBass 700 - Peavey TVX410
Guitar, Bass, Piano, Vocals, Pretty much any string instument I can pick up, learn some basic stuff very fast.

Playing the Didgeridoo (and the trumpet) can cure snoring. So get to it UG community! Stop pissing of your wives during the night by snoring and start pissing them off during the day with loud obnoxious native Aboriginal instruments : )

I can play piano and I play the flute extremely well (not bragging, just saying)

Edit: Lol @ all the desperate people listing every instrument they've ever attempted to play once.

I can proficiently play both guitar and drums. Most guitarists say they can play bass because they play guitar but I suck horribly at bass, and have dabbled in keyboards but I'm terrible at that too, so just guitar and drums.
I perform with a friend who has played bass for 6 years, and when we busk I sometimes steal his acoustic Ibanez bass off him and he plays guitar. We both can play guitar and bass, but because we have both learnt the separate instruments.
