Loads of people I know have a guitar with them here, one of my housemates has one acoustic and 2 electric guitars with him, and another has a bass (they've started a band). Apparently playing the guitar helps when you are bored or stressed!

I've been playing the cello for 3 years... only problem is.. it wasn't mine! So i've been thinking about getting my own cello to play at uni but it's really hard to transport an instrument like that thousands of miles across the Atlantic... plus it's sooo expensive...
I really don't want to drop it so maybe i'll see if i can rent one and continue teaching myself... i dunno.

Its best if you put on your accomodation form if you are taking an instrument, as some halls have practice rooms so you wont piss all your flat mates off.

One of my older friends is in his third year, he is living in a college with a Theatre studies student, (he is doing Chemistry) it drives him mad when his flat mate plays his sax all the time, its been the cause of some *major* arguements. hehe!

I don't really get annoyed with my flatmates, its not as if they're always playing them. They've started a band, and normally they go to a local studio to practice, so it doesn't bother us that much. In fact they are quite good, and have a gig tomorrow, and last night they played us an acoustic version of their set. Its nice to have some live entertainment in your kitchen!

Good stuff, glad to see lots of people taking/planning to take instruments.

I was mainly worried about transporting gear (as its heavy, and awkward on trains etc.) and ofcourse theft.

Anyone else worried about this, or anyone at uni experienced any of these problems?

My violin's worth about £200 with all the accessories and stuff :rolleyes: I'll probably take out instrument insurance on it before I move out - it's not all that much from what I've read

To be honest £200 does not sound much - sorry!

I think I shall take my guitar with me. I doubt it would be played much though; I might be too whazzed to play it.

I was worried about whether or not I could fit my guitar in halls...but with regards to noise - electric guitars make next to no noise unless theyre plugged into an amp so I wont be pissing anyone off.
