*Really* play? Nothing.

Gig with? Electric bass, a bunch of Brazilian percussion instruments (repinique, caixa, agogo, tamborim, and surdo), and vocals.

Love the best? Electric and acoustic 6-string guitars and vocals.

Wish I had time for? Keyboards, cavaquinho, drum kit, more of everything else.

I play guitar, mandolin and drums. I use the word "play" very loosely when talking about drums. I just started. But I will get there eventually.

Guitar
Bass
Ukulele
Drums

I'd like to start playing piano.. right now the only thing i can play is "heart of life" on piano and the worst blues progression you'll ever hear on the piano.

I would love to get a lapsteel, banjo and a mandolin down the line.

Guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, are what I'm confident in. I play well enough on all of them to sit itn at any jam, and try to compose on all of them. I also pick banjo, dobro, pedal steel, and mandolin, but I really just don't enjoy them enough to put in the effort to get proficient.

I play Piano and Keyboards - I can play Clementi Sonatas and bits of Mozart and Haydn Sonatas (though I'm not as good as most piano students who are working that stuff up for recitals)

I play Guitar and Bass, though my hands are small so Bass isn't something I play with any regularity.

I play Mandolin as good as Billy Joe Armstrong plays Guitar (maybe better).

I can play a little of some other stringed instruments, but mainly just messing around - Banjo (very limited), Appalachian Dulcimer (somewhat limited), Hammered Dulcimer (OK), and Violin/Fiddle (poorly).

I can also play Harmonica a little - enough to get through Piano Man and What I Like About You at a gig. I can also play Recorder a bit - better than your average 5th grader playing those plastic ones - but not by much :)

Since computer is now an instrument, I play that too.

I wish I could play some winds - Flute, Sax, Trumpet - something to work on in the future.

I also played percussion throughout school, and focused mainly on mallet percussion (since I was usually the only drummer who could read pitch from my piano studies) but I was never very good at snare drum rudiments and that sort of thing. Can sit behind a kit and play a basic beat, but I don't consider myself "able to play drums" in any useful manner. Percussion, yes, Drums, no.

Best,
Steve

Vocals and harmonica (my main gigging instrument), guitar, bass, flute ( for a couple Tull tunes) mandolin a little as well. Electric guitar is my fav, tho!

guitars have been the mainstay for almost 25 years, but I've dabbled (sometimes extensively) in a wide variety of other stuff, from the comparatively easy (mandolin, folk harp) to the blindingly difficult (shakuhachi, sitar.)

I've played Native American flute for about 15 years. Like a recorder, it's easy to play, but hard to play well. I probably play flute as well or better than I do guitar.

I also play transverse bamboo flute.

And now, with the help of my trusty loopers, I can do it all!
