Heres some generic thread goodness...

Dunno if this has been done, but if it has, kill the thread. I wont cry, much.

Anyway, in my short time on MX, i have noticed a lot of people who play guitar, play drums and bass, or vice versa. What i was wondering, is if anyone one else plays some cool weird instruments Like ukelele or finger guitar or kazoo or whatever, you know the ones that not a lot of people play. i wanna hear about it. :) Thanks everybuddy.

I dont myself play any weird instruments but my buddy Alex plays the mandolin and the glockenspiel along with the normal instruments that he jams on... It sounds really weird when they get played at the same time.

Most good quality instruments are a 1000 dollers man.
Music is an expensive hobby.

I don't have any weird ones, but one of the kids with whom I'm starting a band (I don't know if he's playing an EEb contralto or bari sax in the band...I think he's still deciding which one) can play an ocarina. The only instrument I play that's non-useful for rock music is flute....though there was that one guy...anyone remember him?

We bought a banjo for 50 dollars at a garage sale last year. It smells like cheese, so no one really plays it.

You should try taking up the tin whistle, its not extremely difficult, my dad made me start playing when I was 5, quit when I was around 12, but Im starting it up again and its coming back to me quite easily

i have dabbled in quite a few instruments. trumpet, banjo, mandolin, recorder, some drums ( I REALLY suck), and even some fiddle and yes, recorder too. i guess almost everyone here has played the recorder in grade 5.
