>Piano: My mom put me in it I think, Flute: It was a pretty and feminine instrument and I wanted to be in band, Bass guitar: the more obscure instrument in a band, plus I like the deep sound

> Euphonium, clarinet
> 4 years, 1 year
> I have played in a quintet and a quartet at the New England Conservatory where we mostly played baroque and renaissance music. I have played in a few different larger bands and orchestras where we play a variety of music from classical pieces to music soundtracks.
> I usually perform in one or two solo recitals a year. I participate in 6 or 7 large band or orchestra recitals a year. And typically one small group recital a year.
> My town has a very heavily emphasized music program, and I was encouraged to try the euphonium after trying and failing at the trumpet for a few years
#37358 - toastfacekiller (08/10/2012) [-]
Its kinda unfortunate because euphoniums are gods of the band but then bitches of the orchestra. I mainly pick up trombone or tuba parts because the majority of orchestra pieces i am slated to play have no euphonium parts.
By the way, what instrument do you play?
#37361 - paradoxfag (08/10/2012) [-]
I see your predicament. This also frustrates me greatly. Hate when beautiful instruments are put to one side because they have a certain sound. It has to happen a lot of the time, but it still frustrates me :P I had a big paragraph written out to say what I've done, but I'll just do my own quiz instead :P
>Vocals, Recorder, Cajon (I play 4 percussion so I just round it to this), Guitar, Ukelele, Piano, Flute
>Properly, since about 3 years ago | 10 years ago, re-visited for 2 years, haven't played for 1 | 2 years | 18 months | 1 year | 2 years | BOUGHT YESTERDAY (Hahaha doesn't count as "playing" it but I fuckin love it so i'm mentioning it anyways :P)
>On vocals, I generally sing acoustic music (Pop Indie) or wherever my vocal chords will stretch. And well, I play whatever on the rest (lazy)
>Sang with a few choirs at shows, played recorder at a couple shows. Played around 50+ gigs. (including open mics)
>My self-loathing at not being able to play any instrument.
I know, I haven't been playing most of these very long. But I have Aspergers. And for those of you who don't know it, in this case all you need to know is that I can learn things at kind of an insane speed, though i'll be genuinely obsessive about it for months.
FUCK. This post is really long. I just love talking about music, even when it's just myself, so sorry...

Haha, no sir I do not! I've never actually touched the internet when it came to recorder, so i'm in the dark about anything else out there :)
But seriously i'd love to hear that :O When people stereo-type ANY instrument as a kiddy's instrument it does anger me because it's an INSTRUMENT and there is no kiddy part about an instrument. If you get me? Haha. Well i'm sure this guy you're talking about would shut anyone up dissing the recorder :P

Not unless one of our very small bar gigs was recorded on a cell phone and uploaded to the nether reaches of youtube somewhere. Also we broke up a long time ago because 2 of us (myself included) had to move away. It was fun though because we got into bars at like 16 to play shows.
#37360 - gmarrox (08/10/2012) [-]
I not too great at guitar to do any solo work. I mean when I'm in a band, it's mostly just chords and stuff with a small solo or two to fill up the song. I'm not really good enough to hold my own by myself, like those guys who can do like 10 minutes of pure soloing. But if I start/join a new band in college, I'll put some videos up.
#37379 - paradoxfag (08/10/2012) [-]
Hahahaha, that has to be the funniest thing i've heard in a while :L (Not in a bad way :P)
Personally though, I wouldn't let it get to me! In Cork City the whole place is packed with buskers regardless, so if some of them are homeless, well they have to work harder for their cash and that's just the way it is here :P
