I'd like to hear from fellow members who are either musicians ( performers ) or who play an instrument .

I have played drums for many moons , and have a humble collection of vintage and modern drums & cymbals .

Not in band currently , but play every day along with CDs via Walkman & phones .

How about you ?

There’s a thread called Tiki Musicians Unite, that’s duplicated here!

I play guitar.

I sing. Does that count? But I think my voice might be a bit too 'rock' for this exotica malarkey ...

I also play a bit of guitar and drums -- only a bit, though.

I play Rubber Sitar, Bass Castanets, and Electric Kazoo. Do I win a prize?

Actually, percussion all the way: congas, bongos, claves, guiro, cabasa, bodhran, bones, doumbek, au go-go bells, shakers, castanets, tambourine, djembe, etc., etc. And, of course, that dreadfully boring -- but unfortunately often necessary -- time-keeping invention, the trap set. Scale percussion I've always had a talent/dexterity for but never persued. I regret that. I do have one of those mini-pan (steel) drums I can play quite well, though. But my biggest regret is never having learned the piano. I suppose it would've helped to have one at home; that way, I could've been stuck inside doing lessons on a warm sunny day, rather than outside having fun with the other kids.

Yeah, I mess arround here and there. I play drums and various percussive devices, a little keys, some bass, and just enough guitar to be considered dangerous. I even write exotica, country, rock, techno, and world beat music. Even done a little bit o zydico, you name it, I've written or recorded it.

I play guitar and sing. On an exotic island called Someday Isle, there is a CD of my music being listened to and enjoyed by one and all.
