I have a baritone sax, which I play from time to time, and I also have some vague plans to get up a blues band with some friends after the first of the year.
I can play the oboe, and some clarinet, but haven't in a while.
I used to play out, but not for years.
I used to have a tenor sax, which is what I mostly played, but I couldn't keep lugging around all those instruments from state to state. Coltrane is my favorite, but I have been told that i played more like Lester Young.
No one plays like Coltrane, anyway.

Who plays an instrument? Does anyone play in a band that gigs?
What kind of equipment do you use and how long have you been playing?
What kind of stuff do you like to play? What are your influences?
I've played the guitar since I was about 13, and I love the blues, some funk, and alot of old stuff like Led Zep, SRV, Hendrix and some of the old school chili peppers and sublime. When I started playing all my friends and I listened to were bands like Metallica, (I can play almost everything they recorded), and Megadeth and Slayer. Also Guns N' Roses were a big influence. I can play almost all of appetite for destruction. I think that "jam bands" suck, even though I can easily improvise for an indefinite period of time, and might be able to entertain a barroom crowd of people who normally listen to that stuff.
Just thought I'd start a thread for the musicians here. That's my post up there ^. Now make your own.

I was impressed with that song. Is that DADGAD tuning? I liked the chord progressions a lot.
