I can play the guitar, ukulele, french horn, mellophone, trumpet, piano, and I'm also really well-tuned with playing harmonicas. :)

None. I'm really sad that I don't though, playing something like the guitar or piano seems awesome.. I have no such talent though.

I play the piano, violin, banduria, and guitar - all being string instruments, basically.

I also play with my own voice occasionally.

More people should learn how to play musical instruments. It's an effective way to destress.

Over my life, I've played clarinet, oboe, piano, pipe organ, and xylophone "officially" -- and did some singing as well.

I can learn other instruments, I have the ear for it, but just am terrible at practicing.

Yes, I can honestly say that my ability to play piano saved my life as a teenager. My life just sucked so bad, and I would go into the room without the lights on and sit in the dark and play for hours; it was like the only "voice" I had at the time.

Hmm... well, I have about 21 different instruments. My favourite is the saxophone which is both brass and wind.

I have: electric guitar, acoustic guitar with a slight bass sound to it, ukulele, recorder, slide whistle, tin whistle, alto saxophone, p-bone trombone, kazoo, harmonica, didgeridoo, voice, hand drum, hand cymbals, bongo, tambourine, two electric keyboards, agogo bells, bells, double guiro which has a woodblock attached, party horns, ratchet, and some I invented myself. I also use things that aren't intended to be musical instruments as, well, musical instruments.

Guitar mainly but also bass.
I can do some silly stuff on the drums and I like to try a lot of instruments.
At the time I also own an ocarina, harmonica, glockenspiel and deedjeridoo.

None really but I could've played the piano or some other instrument with keys. I have the ability to play music by ear but never practiced or got really good at it.

it's been a long time since I had a piano, but I used to play a lot up through high school. I sing a lot to myself and have always enjoyed that. I have a violin which I want to learn, but.... I'm too nervous about annoying the neighbors so I never actually practice it. I'm always thinking 'but what if someone is taking a nap right now?' Plus it's a bother to get it in tune every time, but the one I have keeps having the strings slip which is pretty annoying so... I just haven't really done anything with it, despite that it's what I really wanted to learn how to play as a kid, but we had a piano so that's what I did. I do tend to have an 'ear' for music and whenever I have a chance to play around with another intrument it's fun to try and figure out a tune on my own. I used to have a little stringed dulcimer thing and a variety of cheap recorder/pipe type things that I enjoyed playing as a kid.

I currently play violin, guitar, bass, and piano. I'm best at violin because I've played for 8 years.

Should I count the accordion as a wind instrument (which it is, but not in the 'traditional' sense), keys (which it sometimes is) or other?
