    Just thought it would be interesting, as I know we're all into our motors, to see how many Audi-Sport members are musicians of any kind so I'll start,

    My main instrument is drums and I've been playing around 9 years now since I was about 12/13 and I'm 21 now. However I also dabble in keyboard and guitar, been in a few bands over the years just potentially starting a new one up so quite excited about that as I haven't gigged in TIME...! Oh and I've been known to sing lead vocals whilst playing drums on stage on occasion.. that's always interesting.

    So, any other seasoned or budding musicians out there write a post... plus if anyone knows any decent rehearsal rooms in Bournemouth/Poole area that isn't blueline studios or the uni let me know for future reference!

    I always liked saxophone, so around 12 years ago, i bought an alto saxophone, took some lessons and learnt to read music. Best thing
    I have ever. I am not interested in playing alongside others, i do for my own personal enjoyment.

    nice sounds good, i certainly enjoy playing on my own too, something quite therapeutic about playing on your own.

    I play bass, rhythm guitar and keyboards, been in a few bands over the years playing instruments or as a sound engineer. Won battle of the bands in Leeds way back.

    Supported The Commodores, Curtis Mayfield and Chubby Brown amongst others! Lol

    Would love to get a band together and do the pubs/clubs circuit again, it's such a laugh.

    I used to play piano as a kid and did all my grades etc, obviously learnt to read music, but gave it up when it became too uncool! Kind of wish i'd carried on in some ways.

    I'm learning to play guitar at the moment, and collecting an unhealthy amount of the things too for somebody that can't actually play very well!! hehe

    EDIT: Forgot to mention, I got a harmonica last Christmas that I have a little blow on occasionally (oh yeah) and also bass guitar too.

    i've been playing guitar since i was 11, but i stopped about 4 years ago after i met my wife after 15 years of playing.

    I've gigged with my band, we recorded an album and a couple of EPs (all amateur self funded stuff that wasn't ever released or anything).

    i do miss playing at times - i used to practise up for about 4 or 5 hours a day when things got serious - was just starting to nail sweep picking when i stopped. :( i've still got all my gear and keep meaning to start up again.

    I played air guitar for about 25 years before picking up the real thing a few years ago. Got a cheap starter kit for £120, added a Line 6 Pocket POD 6 months later, then 6 months later got a new axe (Ibanez RG370) and most recently got a Blackstar HT5-R valve amp and 1 x12 cab. Never gonna gig but happily rock out in the home office.

    Metal to the max :thrashi:
