I personally used to play piano (like every other azn) but quit...I still play trumpet though, which I have been for 3 years. (Symphonic Band :opps:)

Lol, that'd be hard to make, and most likely hard to follow. In-person lessons would be much more effective.

In any case, what type of music do you play?

Videl, go to www.ultimate-guitar.com, they have lessons for almost everything (although if you are serious about learning, just find a private teacher somewhere)

putis, whats your gear?

Mine: Schecter Elite 4 String Diamond Series
and some ****ty practice amp -_- (im saving for a cab)

I play a multitude of things

Guitar (Bass, Acustic, Electric)
Clarinet...****ing nerdiest thing I've ever done
Bass Clarinet
Alto, tenor, and baritone sax
Piano
A little drums
And A little trumpet

That's it. The only one that was with the school was the clarinet for one year. The rest I had to teach myself because we needed them for certain songs in my old band

Basses:
5-string Ibanez- Don't really use because one of the pick-ups is busted.
4-string Epiphone Thunderbird (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Epiphone-Goth-Thunderbird-IV-Bass?sku=518398)- What I usually play.

Effects:
Boss Overdirve/Distortion pedal- I like the overdrive, it gives a nice broad fat tone when I need it.
Digitech Synthwah Pedal- Has 7 different effects- auto-wah, the talking thing, reverse talking thing, lots of cool synthesizer effects, envelope filter being my favortie and the one I use most.
Something Reverb/Delay (it's chi's)- It can be fun.

Amp: Hartke 300 watt head and a Hartke 400 watt Cab., but I'm only getting 200 watts out of it. I need a bigger head to get the full 400 out of the cab.

Mystic Videl

Yeah... but I want a real Piano, at least a baby grand. I'd have to save up though. Between house (utilitys and loan payments -.-), car, gas, and food, I only have a little bit left over.

It could all be in my head of course. I recorded my voice and I absolutely hated it, not because I hit the wrong notes but because it's obvious I'm 15 when you listen to it.

27. Hendrix, Joplin, and Morrison. All the same age, within a year I'm pretty sure.

He said within a year, so cobain wouldnt be on that list because he was 3 when Hendrix died.

No, but he died at 27, which is I'm sure what he meant.

I took piano lessons for a couple of years, and that's about it.

My voice is kinda deep, but I completely suck balls at singing. I think the last time I sang was when I was forced to in Choir (required class) in 6th grade.
