    I can't play any instrument but I sing. I sang all throughout school and then got accepted to do a music course at college and was only one of three singers that made the class I was going to study music or performing arts at uni but switched to biology as I lost all my confidence with music tbh after encountering so many pricks in that music course.

    I play the electric and acoustic guitar, going for my grade 7 electric guitar exam sometime before December. It kind of sucks that I don't have a band to play with so I'm forced to come up with stuff on my own all the time

    Nah I haven't really sang since I quit that course six years ago I really do miss it but whenever I try to sing, I just can't really get into it hoping my mojo comes back eventually

    I'll look the Toccata when I get home. It sounds quite interesting.
    The toccata is really difficult, and I can't play it anywhere near the 'actual' tempo (some recordings on YouTube are ridiculously fast, so fast that the piece loses its character). But it's still really good fun to play, imo.

    Think I'm first to say that I play the Saxophone (alto saxophone to be precise). Although I'm about to buy tenor and have a strong feeling I'll stick with simply because Blues Rock Solos on it are amazing man. It's a great hobby because I am always learning, and even professionals are still always learning!

    I did my grade 8, but to be honest, while a good qualification, I didn't find much enjoyment out of reading music. Since then I've been trying to do most things by ear and doing a lot of transcription. Although I have to say, Charlie Parker and Canonball Adderley solos need written notation .

    I might try learn the bass later in life, that would be a great second instrument!
