    me, if you ask, personally played the trumpet, baritone, euphonium, cornet, piccolo trumpet, flugelhorn, and the french horn. I was most experienced with the trumpet, cornet, piccolo trumpet, and french horn.

    I also marched with the band at my old high school and first years of college with: a flugelhorn, a B flat horn( kind of like a flugle horn, except the valves tuning slides extended longer and it used a french horn mouthpieace), and a mellophone (kind of like a b flat horn except shorter, smaller, and it used a trumpet mouthpiece).

    Oh yeah, I also know how to play the piano from when I had a piano teacher the taught me.

    I was in many bands over the years and have done some studio work. I have been playing for 28 years, although I am in kind of a hiatus from playing as I don't have the time to dedicate to it. I play guitar, synths and used to sing (nodes on the vocal cords put an end to the singing). I can also lay down a beat on drums, but nothing too fancy. I have dabbled in a bunch of different instruments over the years.

    Ah memories...

    I used to play some guitar. Would love to get back into it. I also sang lead vocals in a thrash metal band. We did a lot of Metallica covers and wrote our own music. I really want to get a new thrash band started. Love heavy metal and love screaming.

    That is true. I actually did a lot of vocal excersises though to keep my voice going. I never really screamed like at the top of my lungs, I prefered the James Hetfield aproach and just using a real raspy semi scream voice.

    Adler, Rülping is much preferred to screaming........... :D

    so Eric when are ya going to let your hair grow out again ? man I feel all alone here on the forum with shoulderlength and longer hair.........Adler are you ready or I suppose the military is still stuck on it's performance looks. Better have it tied back to pound the living daylights out of some clown I will admit than the hairy stuff clogging up your lungs. by the way a good axe was a nice weapon of choice to keep ugly groupiees off back stage back in the 60's
