    I'm really just a bit curious. I myself play a few and was just wondering, what else are the Audiokarma folk up to?

    I'm more of a (deservedly) unappreciated singer, but I do mangle some good music on electric guitar.

    Not me. I'm not musically inclined at all.:oops: Thankfully, that can't keep me from listening and enjoying it.

    Define..."play"!:idea:

    Squeeze box in the distant past. Guitar till the fingers get sore. Trying to bend notes on a blues harp, but only getting a slight curve on them to date.

    Define "play". In my mind there's a scale that runs from "I know what a guitar is" on up to "I'm Andres Segovia".

    Where am I? My personal assessment is somewhere around "I own a guitar":(;).

    I’ve played guitar off and on since I was about 16. I’m realizing just recently, I wish I would’ve stayed committed to playing more when I was younger haha. Currently I own 3 acoustics ( Taylor 114E, Samick Greg Bennett D-4 & a couple cheap Fender CD series ). 2 electric ( 2006 Epiphone Les Paul Standard and a Jackson Randy Rhoads V ). Wish I still had some of the guitars I sold or hocked over the years. Drug addiction is a wretched bitch!

    I must modestly confess that I have been called "the best blues kazooist in the Midwest," however this was by people who had never heard any blues kazooist ever before in their lives. I also play harmonica, the stoneware bass (musical jug), and I dabble in playing various members of the ukulele family.

    My day job. Principal viola of a Canadian orchestra.

    But I still love playing guitar. When I get stuck on a particularly treacherous viola passage, I often pick up an acoustic guitar and sing a Kinks or Beatles cover (or an original).

    I actually got a SOCAN royalty check for airplay of this song I wrote for the old band.
