    Piano, badly...violin, probably really badly, since I don't own one, and
    haven't picked one up in about ten years. I gotta buy one though...I love
    the tonality of that instrument. A little bit of banjo as well...oh yeah,
    and guitar.

    And not only that, he plays things we can't prounounce or even
    know what they are! What the hell is a "Bouzouki"?

    I think he'd better turn in his rmmp password as well!

    Anybody who's even a slight fan of the accordion should check out this
    accordion master from Bahia, Brazil, named Dominguinhos. He's amazing.

    There's also the fellow, can't place his name, who plays with Ivo Papasov
    and his Bulgarian Wedding Band.

    My brother and I were politely asked to leave a German bar in Chicago Zum
    Doichenik or something like that. The guy had an electric accordion and we
    were doing the lighter thing and wanting him to play 'freebird'. We had
    consumed a number of icy cold malt beverages at that time :)

    I'm a closet surf guitar player (a poor one). I'm trying to resist
    the urge to buy a reissue Fender Jag. I feel that I'm going to lose
    the fight though :)

    I play Hammond B3, piano, and synths in public.

    Fiddle with guitar and bass at home. Have played some rhythm guitar out in
    cover bands where I played keys, also.

    I was a band director for a number of years so I had to learn all the
    instrument families to a certain degree, but all these stay home....to the
    pleasure of the audience;-)

    I take turns playing drums or guitar in the bands I've been in, but I
    started as a Sax player first. Took 5 years of piano lessons as a
    kid, does that count?

  20. A bouzouki [sp?] is a traditional Irish Instrument apparently, I believe we
    can thank Donal Lunny for that.

    IIRC it's a Greek stringed instrument that Monty Python made famous with
    John Cleese's line "will somebody shut that bloody bouzouki up!"

    That's quite enough information for now.

    Don't forget to dry between your toes.
