MUSCIANS THREAD

So after a search I couldn't find one here, and music is something that we all can relate to...
What instrument do you play? In a band currently or working up to it?
Me, I used to sing in the Moline Boys Choir and then took piano lessons for awhile. In high school I started playing the bass and with a lot of help from an awesome musician/ guitar player who I am getting together with again after 17+ years, we started a garage band. We had a me(bass), a decent drummer, and a really good guitarist. I did sing too, but we only did a few songs with vocals. Then I could only play with a pick.

Now I've been takeing lessons to learn the proper way to play the bass and have a Washburn bass with a Crate amp that is awesome! I never thought I could play thrash/ metal with my fingers, but with a really good instructor, I'm learning fast. And the sound is so much richer when you hit the notes with your fingers. A lot fuller.
I know there is at least a few past/current musicians in here. What's your story? Influences? Idols? My living idols are Robert Trujillo, Jason Newstead, Geezer Butler, Flea, and Gene Simmons cause he is the ultimate musician!

Cliff Burton was my first influence, may he rest in peace. His soul will live on forever!

Ya, that's kind of what inspired me to buy a new bass and amp, Guitar Hero. I really like the real thing better than the game. You're never to old to pick up that guitar again and play the music you love!

I play the tuba! It won't fit in the trunk of a 5th Gen, but that's what my wife's HHR is for

I am working on two really hard songs. Battery and Blackened both by Metallica. I used be able to play Battery with a pick, but I've thrown all those away and those songs are really fast and hard to play with your fingers. I learned Walk This Way by Aerosmith and it is one of my favs after playing it a hundred or so times to get the right tempo. Smooth Criminal by Micheal Jackson/ AA Farm is really fun and sounds good with just the bass and drums.

What is the hardest song you can play all through? Anyone else play music regularly here?
