Er… I give the guitar a horrible name, if that counts.
But I play all varieties of Saxaphone, mostly Alto… and yeah, I actually recognize Shenandoah. Except I hated it, because we had the crappy toned-down junior-high version.
And yeah, not particularly good at free-styleish anything, but not bad with actual sheet music.
I also play drums, which is my main interest. I mostly play trap set in one of two punk-rock bands (how stereotypical of my sixteen-year-old self) that always end up sounding completely different than everyone else… but the old one disbanded because we all ended up hating eachother… or rather, we all ended up hating two people, and then two of the last three hated the one, and then one of the two liked the one again, and I started to dislike them both. Kudos if you followed that.
I wouldn’t say I’m particularly good, just intermediate, as far as drummers go.
And no. No. No I do not have any examples, lol. Anything that I’ve recorded with my old band I’m too embarrassed of to show here. I’m actually ashamed of how bad I was eight months ago. That, and the recordings were horrible… if I get a hold of the much more recent video recordings, I’ll throw them on youtube and give you guys a link so you can laugh at me and make fun of how I look in real life and all that good stuff that happens on the internet.
Seriously, though, don’t make fun of my suckiness too much.
by the way, almost forgot… I also play a little bit of Djembe (believe that’s how it’s spelled… also Doumbek, dumbek, and darabukka. Goblet drums, I guess would be an easier phrase.) and I am actually naive enough to consider myself decent, even though I suck and the only reason that it can be called “music” is because of my obsession with rhythm and my ability to keep time and change tempo.
You sure that’s the best way to go? I’m pretty sure I got rhythm down first, then tone… though with sax, technique I kinda had to learn before rhythm to make, y’know, sounds. But if you get rhythm down, you can at least sorta make music while you get tone figured out. Rhythmical crappy sounds are better than non-rhythmic ones, and can actually sound ok… as certain particularly bad and particularly popular rap artists could tell you <_<
Keeping in mind that I said certain and that I do admit that some rap is good, I would like it if I didn’t get flame-murdered in my sleep tonight.
