    I play some electric bass and piano. My piano teacher never taught me to read music, so I play my piano and keyboard by ear. I taught myself to play bass and read tab, so I can play covers of songs I like. I'm learning to just relax and have fun while playing instead of pushing myself too hard.

    No videos yet. Let me get a little bit healthier, and I might post a few covers.

    This is my boyfriend and I playing at the Christmas Eve service at our church :) The piano part was fully made up by him and I sang without my guitar this time. Tell me what you think! (While you're at it, please check out my channel!)

    ^I think that's great! Lol sadly I don't have any videos but that's probably a good think considering I'm self taught in almost everything I play haha. I had about seven or eight years of being taught to play string bass (and electric bass, and electric string bass haha) and preformed with my schools orchestra and was accepted into my schools elite symphonic band (of which I was the only string :p) my college also accepted me but I had to decline.
    I taught myself how to play classical guitar and usually just play for family or for my own enjoyment.

    Yesterday was my one year anniversary of playing cello! I taught myself how to play cello as well and preformed a few times as a 'guest' soloist with my school orchestra and play at a few small gigs here and there. I'm by no means the best but it's fun to go out and play for people and show them how to play and let them interact with a string instrument. Mostly I just do covers of songs and soundtracks for my own enjoyment.... maybe if I ever get around to it I'll upload a video. :p Typically their awful because I only have a cheap digital camera to record them with. Cello's now become my main instrument so surely I can only get better from here on out right?...... right? Hehe

    You've got a really good voice, but don't be afraid to really sing out. You and your BF both were sort of overpowered by the piano and we could hardly hear you.

    When I'm in my truck with the stereo turned up by myself I'm frickin George Strait. Otherwise not so much.

    I can rock out on guitar hero though. Seriously I've always wanted to learn to play guitar, just never have taken the plunge.

    Fort fireman, as a relatively new guitar player I can tell you, it gets very frustrating and overwhelming at first, but once you kind of get a feel for it, it gets pretty darn easy.

    Incitatus32- that's so cool, I've always wanted to learn violin or cello or something!! Work hard at teaching yourself though, I taught myself guitar and I'm in the process of teaching myself piano and you can go far that way! People become famous for their own made up styles!

    Smrobs- thanks, I know his voice wasn't heard very much because his mic was quiet and he's just a bit of a quiet singer in general...the piano was loud due to where my mom (who was filming) was sitting. Everything comes out depending on where you're sitting in our church and the piano is loud in that section.
    And I agree, guitar is frustrating at first, but so is every instrument! The thing I respect about guitar players more than others is how much it hurts when you're just beginning. Like your fingers burn! It takes a determined person to be able to play guitar sometimes!

    Wow, there are some talented singers on here! I can't sing.. well, I can, but not very well and I only do it when I'm alone in my car. I play the violin. I've been playing for nearly 18 years. I've been taking lessons and playing with an orchestra the entire time I've been playing. I went to a college that did not have a music major, so the number of talented musicians was limited. I got the title of concert master and senior soloist in my last year of college, which isn't that big of an accomplishment at a science school, but I'm still proud of myself for it! Now that I'm an adult, I joined a local college orchestra as a community member. Many of these kids ARE music majors. They're very talented, and I just do my best to keep up!

    Here's the most recent record of our Orchestra that I could find on youtube. I am in this video in the 1st violin section.

    Wow some amazing musicians here!

    I play the guitar, not really good but I thought it myself. I love the instrument and I wish I could play it better. I can only do simple chords haha.
    I also sing, like the whole day haha. So much that it's annoying my brother :')
    I don't really dare to upload something on youtube haha. I don't think I'm good or something :p It's not really about the people I don't know, because I don't know them, who cares. But what if the people I know hear it and it's really baaaad haha.

    I also LOVE the piano, I can't play it, but I love it haha. I love to listen to it and I wish I could play it.

    Reeltje, and anyone else who plays guitar, the best thing you could ever do is look around your area for groups of musicians who get together and just pick and have fun. We have several groups around my area, and I live in the boonies, so I'd imagine that there are many more groups in larger or more urban type areas.

    The great thing about all the musicians I've met is that they are incredibly helpful and welcoming to all new or inexperienced players, whether you are good or not.

    You can learn so much more so much faster by playing with others and having them challenge you to keep that rhythm just right or get those changes fast enough without pausing.

    A person can pick up so many bad habits when you only play by yourself (speaking from personal experience here).
