Is it just me or is it really annoying when people think they're amazing musicians if they put a huge list of instruments they probably look at in a shop once as stuff they play? I've met so many of these people and I've never seen one play even half of the stuff on the list nore do they know anything about it. I'm all for playing more than 1 instrument but does there really need to be more than 10?

If I had the money I'd definitely invest in a wide variety of instruments.
I can understand what you mean but, I've never met any people like that

What happens when you get these types of multi-instrumentalists together?

I've never met someone like that, but I personally plan on learning Violin after Piano next year. That means I'll be playing 3 instruments.

Anyone who does that though is a jackass.

Well to any degree I can play quite a few instruments. Guitar, drums, piano, upright bass, violin, mandolin..or ukelele, can't remember which.

The only one I would perform in front of people is guitar though. Every time I make a list of what I can play, people sit me down with something and ask me to play songs and I'm just like....no, I know how to play it. Doesn't mean I can do anything to show off.

you're mad because you're not good at every instrument you've ever touched, aren't you?

I work my ass off and put it into my instruments.

With my own money, I've bought guitars, a bass, a keyboard, and harmonicas. I can play all of them proficiently. There are a bunch I say I can play because I've worked out a little of them and play them often enough in jams and whatnot to count in my mind, but I admit I'm not proficient on.

I don't see why I'd take pride in limiting myself to one tonal palette. That's just silly.

i have a friend who can play guitar and bass like a boss. play piano decently and a little violin. He also produces a lot of trance music with midi controllers of all sorts so i dont know if you would consider all of those instruments.

personally i can play guitar and bass.i am fully capable to play in a band with both instruments. i can figure simple shit out on the piano if i sit there for a lil bit, but i wouldnt say that i can play piano.

So, to summarize, you know the basics but can't perform anything in an intermediate fashion on them except a couple?

I expected a 'your mom' joke. Son, I am dissapoint.

OT: Anyone can play an instrument, but playing it well is a different story.

I didn't want to be too predictable.

Yeahhh

I tend to write lots of shit then forget to tl;dr it.

I've picked up lots of instruments to learn them, but only actually progressed with guitar and piano.

That'll probably be me when I begin Violin, mostly due to the fact that Violin is such a time consuming and intense instrument. I just wanna do it for fun and have it in my repertoire 'cause it's BA. And I got a steal on a 350 one marked down to 170, sadly the people that sold me it gave me a broken bow, but they replaced it.
