As a musician it's always beneficial to learn another instrument, as you can get more jobs, and double fees. Do you play other instruments besides guitar?

I started to play blues harp, know some cool tricks in C major on the keyboard (and that's about it tongue.gif ), and well, I can sing backing vocals. I could play bass with the pick too. It would be great to learn to play one brass instrument, like tenor sax smile.gif

I use the keyboard sometimes, but nothing technically difficult, and some wind instruments!

I also play keyboards a bit, and sing as well yeah,

I started playing keyboards at age 13, and still have my old keyboard.
I also have a 5-stringed bass that I wish I had more time to play.

And I once build my own berimbau, which was quite bad but playable

I sing, probably better than I play guitar. I've mucked about with 5 string banjo and mandolin and piano, but wouldn't say I could play them

This year i bought a keyboard,but I still i can manage chords only and simple stuff.

My next instrument is definitively a drum or a saxophone

I am definitely NOT a singer. But I took piano lessons for many years. Even though I am out of practice, I could play if I picked it back up. I can still do some stuff on the keyboard.

Have been playing drums for 7 years now, and picked up bass 4 years ago, I found it really helpfull to be able to play all the 'rock instruments' to compose music, wich I was better at playing the piano though mellow.gif
