I'm just wondering how much of UG knows more than one instrument...

I know guitar, piano, and vocals if that counts. Posts stating what you play are appreciated.

When I saw that, I thought of musical notes.... my elementary school teachers taught them as "tee-tees" "ta-tas" and a bunch of other nonsense....
I play guitar and bass, but some people might consider them the same instrument.

edit: I can also play piano. Kinda.

Guitar, Bass, alto saxophone, and a little ukulele. I can play a few chords on piano but that's it.

Guitar and bass, but that's about it. Unfortunately, I'm not all that good at either one

I would like to learn drums and piano too though (and maybe how to sing well).

My principles are jazz guitar and classical violin in college. I'm also practicing keyboard by myself because I really want to play Bach's keyboard pieces...that is the only goal as far as that goes.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Bass, clarinet, and bass clarinet if you count that as different from regular Bb clarinet. I think it is.. it's a bit weird to play if you don't do a few things first.
I was kind of surprised to see 5 people who voted no.
I kinda figured if you can play one, you can play them all, I play guitar, bass, organ, piano, banjo and I can keep a beat on drums, I plan on learning uke and mandolin, possibly some other stuff.
I'm a guitarist, but I know how to play the drums (Just a little though), and I used to play the keyboard when I owned one.

Obviously I don't really count as a "Multi-instrumentalist" because I only own guitar-related stuff, but I hope to own a drumset, bass, and another keyboard when I live on my own.
Acoustic guitar, classical guitar, electric guitar, acoustic bass guitar, electric bass guitar, electronic drum set, acoustic drum set, piano, synthesizer, clavichord, keytar and vuvuzela.
Guitar mainly,

I can bluff bass like a guitar player, I can play some basic piano, I sing and do a smidge of harmonica in one song.

but I wouldn't class myself as a multi-instrumentalist as I am only reasonably accomplished in one area.

I mainly play guitar, and a little piano(but I suck at piano). Also, I am able to pick up and jam out on a bass when I go to a local guitar store, but I don't own one.
Guitar, Bass, and Drums

I'm best at guitar, but I can hold my own on drums quite a bit. I wouldn't call myself a qualified bassist, any guitarist can pick up a bass and just doodle around on the root notes, which is what I would do. I do a bit of slap, but it's mediocre.
Guitar,bass,banjo,bouzouki,mandolin,drums,harmonica some keyboards and I also do some vocals on the side.I do have a lot of free time though. ^^
If you could reason with religious people,there would be no religious people.
Obviously guitar. And I find my way around a piano but no way near well enough to even begin to think about saying I play it.
Guitar, Drums, Bass, Vox, Piano

Guitar, vocals. I used to play the flute. I also know the notes on the piano but I only know a few songs.

If you play bass in the way that you've invested time into learning how to play it then I'd call it a different instrument. If you "play bass" as in you're a guitarist who has the physical ability to play bass but has never spent much/any time on it then I'd say that you don't really play bass.

On topic, I play guitar, bass and violin.
I can play guitar at a 'university' level i would say, because i am a fingerstyle guitar major, but i love metal and punk and pop and everything. I also am pretty good at bass and piano. I am a decent drummer, but i've never owned a set, i just go with what i hear from the bands i listen to. And the basic stuff. I also sang in high school and am the lead singer of my solo project which is just me haha. And i can play a VERY shitty cello, and a decent fretless upright bass.
