    Yep...when he turns it on, it displays the number of hits. 1.5 million is pretty impressive in a few months, but the guy is a practice fiend with crazy good hands (he's all about Neil Peart and Stewart Copeland)

    I've never been a Rush fan, but Peart is a god to drummers. Copeland is amazing, too, when you consider how much he added to the Police sound.

    started out in 4th grade on the viola, then switched to trumpet in the 7th grade, we moved and the new school didn't have orchestra, they had a marching band lol. About the 10th grade I switched from trumpet to french horn then played baritone for the last two years of high school. After high school I picked up the violin and mandolin, now I'm learning the guitar. My guitar is an el cheapo Fender accoustic cut away, but because the accoustic doesn't agree with my bad shoulder I'm planning on picking up an electric in the future.

    I play guitar (own a Fender Stratocaster, Yamaha acoustic, an Aria Gibson Dove copy, a modded Spanish-style guitar with metal strings, a humbucker pickup and a Telecaster bridge, a Univox Hi-Flyer painted surf blue, a Telecaster copy from the 70s and I'm currently building a real Telecaster out of some really nice parts), bass and drums. The drums are a nice set of Ludwigs from the 1970s. Very Zeppelin-esque. Add to this harmonica and a very basic amount of piano. Though I'm sure I could improve on it quite a bit if I ever bothered to get a keyboard or a piano or something.

    I've been playing accordion for a few years. Still learning. Thru all my life this music was somewhere near me. I had many CDs and was listening to them. One day I decided to try my hand. I visited music school because I wanted to know if I have a musical hearing ... Later I enrolled on course

    I like folk, classical and everything what sounds good to me like tango, polka, march, etiudes etc.

    This is my very light (~7,2 kg) accordion from 1940. After general service and plays very well.





    Accordion was very popular before and after II WW, let's say, all over the world. Later, from '70s a little bit less interesting. Today it depends on region but for me it still sounds great

    I know that Tony Lovello was very famous in America and I like very much his performances.

    I don't consider myself a musician. But I did play trombone in school. Not too bad either, till the teacher found out I couldn't read music, nor could I ever comprehend it.
    I played by ear.

    I've been dabbling with the electric guitar for years, though. Heavy metal, mostly Metallica.

    I also spent a couple years as a drum rodey, for a band in Cleveland Ohio, called Kidd wicked. Oh the back stage stories...their real.

    Now if I can't figure a part out, there's the internet for that. I just need to see how its played. I'm nothing great, but it's fun, keeps the fingers n mind going.

    I dabble with the Hurdy Gurdy. Nothing serious but I can crank out a tune.

    I played the tenor sax through high school. I was never any good because rather than practice in spare time I was playing sport.
