Well, I like the Idea of other seibertronians playing instruments, and talking to alot of you, I always picture trying to hear what kind of instrument you would play, so if you do, wich instrument do you play?

I started out in Grade 5 on Trumpet, when I got to High School in Grade 8 I was shifted to Euphonium.

Once I left school I would some times make "guest appearances" with the school band either on trumpet or euphonium.

Now with the community band I was doing euphonium but i'm pretty much trumpet now.

Instruments I own ...

• Boosey & Hawkes Transitional Trumpet from the 1920's. Transitional in that it has a dial on it that you can turn to go from the key of A to Bb. Can't play it though as some of the joins are coming apart so there's air leaking ... and it's just not in tune with modern instruments.

• Trumpet from my younger days. Might be Amarti, I can't remember, it's a piece of crap. (I use the bands Jupiter)

• Boosey & Hawkes Euphonium from the 1910's. Well I don't actually have it, it's in getting restored and has unfortunately been there for over two years. The guy is a douchebag and gives promises and excuses after another. He has until next month and then i'm just taking it back. The screwing around i've gotten over this is why I don't play Euphonium anymore.

• Two Trombones. Can't remember the brands. I picked one up from the old high school auction for $10 (along with the table it came on and various other musical stuff). The case was dodgy so I asked the then music teacher at the school if she had a spare case. She then gave me another trombone.

I Always pictured you as the gruff guitar playing guy in the corner of a dark bar smoking a ciggy laughing at the guy on the other end of the bar for not being able to hold down his liqueur. You learn something new every day I guess!

I was a saxophonist from middle school through high school Had an Alto but in highschool I primarily played Baritone. Some of the best times of my life, but once I finished Highschool I never touched it again. I had no intention of being a music major and Computer science doesn't leave you much room for music.

Now see BeastProwl, this is a great example of defying expectations.

If you'd seen pictures of CB from a few years ago you'd be scared. He was always very intense and had scary eyes. You wouldn't imagine him singing in church.

These days though he's become a big softy. Image

Wonder how many people you could get together at BotCon one year that could put a band together ...

I played percussion in the band in middle school, I took piano lessons early in grade school but my teacher was terrible so I took it again as a class in high school, and I also took guitar classes and now that's what I play mostly. I used to think rock music was evil but now I live for it.

you know what? I Personally never got that mentality. Rock=Evil? How can something so feeling, so alive, so legendary, be considered an evil thing? Rock, and to me, more importantly, Metal, isn't all evil. There are evil Rocks and Metals (LOL An archeologist would laugh at that) but not all of its bad. It's like rap and hip-hop. I Despise about 97% Of ALL OF IT. But there's a song or two in that remaining 3% That I actually enjoy.

I don't know, (not to generalize) some more conservative religious people see Satan in rock music. And growing up around a few of those people kind of breeds that. A friend of my dad found a church he liked then all of a sudden he gave away of all his music records because he said they were "evil".
However, a lot of rock music I hear glorifies drug abuse and unlimited sex (*cough* the 70's *cough*)...so...there are some grounds there according to my morals. I still love it anyway, even though I don't practice the subject matters.
And yes, I know how you feel about rap and hip-hop. I'm extremely critical of it, but once in a very long while I hear something I sort of like.
