This is a topic to find those of us in this forum who play any musical instrument. Does anyone play any of the following:
2)Guitar(electric or acoustic)
Just to name a few.
How long have you been playing? What type of music do you like to play?
I am a self taught piano player.Love sitting at the piano and singing my head off.Makes me feel good.Its a great feeling.Been playing piano since 1980s when I found a simple way to learn.I could never understand how to read music.I read chords instead. Playing piano is as simple as knowing what to press.Each note has a name.There's 88 of them all together. They start with C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C. Press 3 at the same time and you've got yourself 1 chord.Play that chord with both hands.It sounds much better.Add a few more chords and you've got yourself a song.
I love playing love ballads.They do wonders.
Thanks for stopping by.

Great to hear about your approach to learning to play piano. @Denv12
I saw a singer playing keyboard last night at an old haunt.
Music is magic.

Thank you for replying. Making music is a great feeling.I watched everyone else doing it for years then found a way to learn.It paid off.

@Denv12 @Appleblossom I play the piano. Since my last breakdown, I and my fingers forgot a lot of the muscle memories. Now I started on some simple children music book. I quite enjoy those. My mum is getting difficult to look after with early dementia. I try not to upset her with loudness of piano music.

I have been playing piano since I was a child and have a few old classical favourites that I play. I also like to play a few balads and sing along.It's a great way to pass some time.
I also play recorders and have played them with friends in the past. People always think of school recorders but there are recorders of all sizes. I like the woody sound. I think it's a great idea to continue having piano or other music lessons over one's lifetime.it's something I'd like to do.
