I know this has been done in the past, but people change, and new members arrive all of the time.

True, but I really doubt the UG populace is that much different now than it was here.

Hmm... I also play keyboard (shittily), can sing somewhat, noodle about on my bro's guitar sometimes, and sometimes play my dad's upright. But mainly keys and bass.

So 2 or 5.

I think bassists are more likely to play multiple instruments just because of the nature of the instrument, it requires a bit more understanding of the surrounding factors than guitar or drums, and more respect for the music as a whole.

I play Bass, Guitar, Drums, Vocals, Keyboard, and at one point I played trumpet.

I think it's more to do with the individual rather than being a bassist. I'm the only one in my band that plays bass, but we all play at least two instruments.

I find that most good musos (not all though) play multiple instruments. It really does help you so much.

I play bass, trumpet, and guitar competently. I could probably play most brass instruments with a bit of practice, I'm not too bad on a double bass, and I can play a few chords on keys. If I had the time/money I'd take up drums and double bass seriously as well.

EDIT: I guess I can sing to pitch as well, but I'm not great. I've good good air support from trumpet playing I guess, I still need to work on singing and playing at the same time.

I also understand the very basics of playing the keyboard.

I play trombone, guitar and bass somewhat seriously and I can play quite many chords on the piano. Also fooling around with the harmonica
#34
See is it whether I play them or whether I can play them. I play three instruments, Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone, and Bass. I can play Bass Clarinet, Violin, and Cello as well as all the other Saxes along with those three.

#37
Hmm...Well, it would be about 5?

Singing - I sing real well

Bass - I'm ok, mediocre kinda...

Guitar - just fiddle with one occasionally, so can say I'm good...

Piano - I'm really advanced here, but I don't really have time to practice, so I'm not progressing

Flute - I still have this flute from when we had flute lessons in third grade.....It's awesome (0_o)

I play keyboard too, but that kinda counts as piano...
