just curious how many people on here play an instrument. if you do, what kind of music do you play and why do you like playing? Do you sing? do you write? I started playing the guitar when I was 14 so 11 years now. I love it but hated it the first couple years because I SUCKED lol. I mostly play I guess what you could call alternative but influenced by grunge and metal bands. I mostly play acoustic and I think I have a some what unique sound. I started putting lyrics to my music about 4 years ago. I love to sing to my music I just need to take some singing lessons lol. I took lessons once a week for about a month but he was more interested in showing off. So I took the few chords I learned from him and ran with it. I've written about 3 songs, none on paper, all in my head. I love playing because it's an emotional outlet and great to express your creativity.
