    Instruments- can you play any?

    Just curious if any Freshies here have any talent with musical instruments??

    I played the alto saxophone in school when I was 10-14 but I quit going into high school because band was too big of a time commitment and I didn't really LOVE it.

    Now, I'm learning guitar. I got one in like January of this year, and I'm really trying to be better about REALLY learning it. Basically I can play the 4 chords that compose the majority of Taylor Swift's songs right now But I have a book, and in the next couple of weeks and when I get back to school, I'm going to try to learn everything step by step so I actually kind of know what I'm doing and I'm not just learning where to put my fingers to play "Our Song" haha.

    I also learned some piano for a class this past semester, which was pretty cool! I used to have a keyboard but I unfortunately don't anymore, so I would have to go kind of out of my way to keep up with it.

    I don't, the closest I came was going to ONE keyboard lesson. I didn't have my own and the teacher was shocked at this so I never went back. I don't have the patience to learn If I could play any instrument I'd love to be able to play piano. And i write songs so it'd be great to be able to put them to music!

    I took piano lessons for a few years. I think I was pretty good at it. I switched from piano lessons to voice lessons and let's just say I was better at piano lessons, haha.

    Fun fact: My former piano/voice teacher was recently charged with enticing a child.

    ^Hahahah YAY for pedofiles! My Driver's Ed teacher was caught with child pornography after he one time LITERALLY said "Gretchen, I am NOT a pervert!" (long story why he said it).

    I have also dabbled in songwriting, Daisy... I would love to put some guitar chords to it but I think I have awhile to go until I'm able to do that!

    Oh yes! I write song lyrics all the time and I would love to put it to music. Sometimes I try using GarageBand to do it, but I get bored and end up not finishing it, haha.

    Not really. I used to play the guitar, but not anymore. I can't really play the piano. The only song I could play was Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

    My current issue is that I don't really like playing guitar when anyone is home . Granted I just re-strung my guitar after having a snapped string on it for like 4 weeks haha, but I get self-concious about it. And I like singing while I play too. So I'm looking forward to getting back to school and being less self-concious about playing in my suite with my friends and stuff. I also need to do some serious tuning on it, omggg. I tried to the other day but it still sounds terrible.

    All I can play is the opening bars of I Just Called To Say I Love You. I had to play it over and over at school for weeks!

    Gretch, I think it's really great you're trying all these new instruments! As most of you know, I have been playing the piano for many years. I also played percussion in the middle and high school bands, and then again one semester in college, and I think I may do it again. I also played the violin in 4th grade.
