in reply to I play the following instrument(s)...

As a kid, I played the recorder in elementary school because it was required. I picked one up a few months ago and couldn't play a thing on it any more.

My grandma gave me a Jew's Harp one summer and I would play that thing for hours driving my folks batty! >:-)

In middle school, I played the French Horn. Ah! What an elegant instrument that is! I even played it at church on Sundays. I stopped playing it my freshman year of high school. Why? They expected me to march with it!

I have played the computer keyboard for only a short time but am becoming quite adept at producing "music" by programming the songs in Perl.

I purchased a musical keyboard last week! So I've been beating it to death trying to make something that halfway resembles music. ;-) J/k. I can't "play" it or do proper "keyboarding" techniques but in conjunction with my MIDI software I can do *great* things. .oO( maybe I'm biased? )

    Ah, the recorder. My sister used to play that at school. Sometimes I would, er, borrow it and try to play it myself. I was hopeless of course but it was rather fun :-)
