Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

I used to play the guitar, but switched over to a ukulele. The ukulele was smaller and was easier to use in the tight quarters of a boat. Plus it turned out to be a lot more fun to play!

I'm counting cymbals as well. I'm a Neil Peart, Terry Bozzio, and Chad Wackerman fan, what can I say?

CD - the cello's cool. Just look at Yo Ma Ma.

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

My cello cost more than my boat and has never gotten anywhere close to it. Would love one of those electric or carbon fiber cellos but then they cost more than my boat. This is a very big conflict for me as one needs to, as my teacher once told me: "Only play on the days you eat."
Classical music from all periods, plus salon music from the turn of the century for piano trio. About 15 minutes of jazz is my limit and can take R&R at about minus 70 db. Guitar played like Les Paul is really nice. Jazz like Thelonius Monk is good.
Wish I could find an inexpensive plastic cello.
Once played a Bach suite in a Redwood grove. What an etherial experience. Would love to do the same at anchor.

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

25+ years playing guitar, I still stink. I have 4 guitars total. 1 all acoustic (Washburn D10, 2 elec-acoustic (an Epiphone PR5e, and a Martin 000-CXEBlack), and 1 all elect (fender strat squire junk).

I love my Martin, it follows me everywhere. It's small (parlor size). I chord crunch mostly. I don't leave it on the boat for fear I'll ruin it. It's not a "true" Martin in the traditional sense, but it's the nicest I've owned.

I play modern country stuff, but mostly of classic rock... I try not to foist my voice, or guitar playing onto anyone. Most people are at the dock to relax. If music ain't your thing it can grate on you (as likely my voice does too).

Alcohol tends to curb my better judgement, and I've been known to "interrupt" silence with my poor quality tunes.

Great post! I have the same issue with vocals. My wife has the voice of an angel. I actually think she could be pro. Me on the other hand, well, it ain't pretty. Course, a few drinks and it doesn't matter (feeding others drinks, that is)

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

Guitar. Playing-wise, I”m into blues and rock, some R&B, anything that’s catchy. I’m no lead player, but have some chops.

Guitars:
1. Gibson Les Paul Studio
2. Ibanez Iceman Clone (adorned with top of line Seymour Duncan pups). Built this guitar
from parts.
3. Aria Pro Series II Michael Schenker Flying V. Installed new parts, incl SD pups. Bought the body alone, no parts, $35
4. Aria Pro Series II Michael Schenker Destroyer. Had to match the other Aria.
5. BC Rich Warlock - Had to turn broken headstock from 5 string to 6 string. Still holding up. Gotta love Titebond III glues.
6. Jay Terser Blues (strat copy with reverse headstock).
7. Paul Stanley signature series Silvertone - very nice cheap guitar
8. Fender Telecaster
9. Fender Sprucetop acoustic
10. Ibanez 12-strong acoustic
12. Small (can’t remember brand), 24-3/4 neck electric travel guitar that I use on the boat.

About covers it. The little travel guitar wintered pretty well on the boat.

Need to thin out the herd.

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

I'm really good at playing the iPod. Still have my beloved Gibson acoustic guitar, until an injury made it impossible for me to chord accurately with my left pinky. (Bodysurfing on a beach in Aruba, so don't feel too sorry for me, okay?)

My wife, was a music major in school. She can play sax, alto, oboe, clarinet, and her specialty was flute. She can read/write music, and has taken voice lessons. She was at a time one of the top oboe players in the country. However! she discovered early on in her career she could not "live" on the income from it. Shame for the rest of us.

Meanwhile she won't sing in public, and doesn't play music anymore. We've lost a great musician, due to practicality. I've tried to get her into it again... just won't do it.

When she's singing at home, it's chilling to hear. So I totally understand where you are coming from.
