    Are you an Artist and Musician?

    I was just wondering, in addition to being serious about art, how many people here are serious musicians too? I split my time about half and half between art and music. I've been playing the bass for 5 years and play a lot of shows with my band. http://www.last.fm/music/Kindred+Fall

    If you're a serious musician, post what instrument you play and a link to your music, if you have one.

    I play the guitar and the ukulele, and occasionally write songs for both.

    I drum on my keyboard with my fists whenever i accidentally open up Adobe Bridge, if that counts.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

    I'm a very average guitarist if that counts.

    I used to mix on the turntables. I find it hard to split myself up in to too many disciplines. The only musical thing I really have time for now a days is the huge drum we use for Lion Dance at my Kung Fu school.

    I'm serious about playing my violin, but that doesn't mean I'm good at it. I only started at the beginning of the school year so there's definite room for improvement. I play a couple hours a day though. It's very relaxing.

Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy." -Douglas Adams

    Sadly no, but I am planning to learn how to play the violin someday.

    I vote, sometimes, because I enjoy music and I like to sing, it just doesn't sound very well.. Maybe I'll get better though

    bass for 8 years, guitar for 4, trumpet for 10, sax for around 5. I still play but not as much as I used to. Pretty much dedicated to art now so practicing music theory and technique all day isn't an option anymore.
