I play some guitar, mostly just goofing around. Occasionally I'll try to learn some Carlos Santana licks just as a challenge. I find it's like cooking; I'm creating something that comes from within and am always amazed that I did it.

I play the piano....not often anymore. I took lessons for 11 years and some college courses in music ed.
The only time I've played it in the last few years was when I was in love....funny. There is something about playing that let's my heart soar. Mainly Russian classical.

For years I played trombone and bass guitar, but that was ages ago. I doubt I could even read a sheat of music anymore.

I've been playing guitar and bass pretty much daily for around 25 years or so:eek: I've played for fun and played professionally as well. I don't really gig anymore as I got tired of the nights and the grind. Now I am just lazy, but I do play at home all the time. Mostly Steve Vai, Steve Morse, SRV and a whole host of others.

Well, I tinker with the piano, i used to play more often in high school, but haven't played seriously in years, and now I also want to learn to play guitar.

I play piano- so poorly that my hubby finally convinced me to put the old gal out of her misery. She now gets played weekly at a seniors outting.

Outlet for creative aspirations: work of course! Being a pastry chef is the perfect outlet for creativity.

I create my music with carborators,valves and pistons.
The best is when I can take it from a humm to a throaty roar!
My son and I just finished a wonderful concert- 1974 Jensen Healey

I have played guitar since I was a kid . Great stress let down . Sadly I must say that my other musical vice is women ! Just love to hear those high notes that you cannot reproduce with a musical instrument !
