    Just pondering. Who all plays more than guitar? I am the drummer for our blues band, because we have enough guitar players (EVERYBODY wants to be the guitar hero). And we have a bass player (our backup guitar player). I would probably be the weakest overall guitar player, even though I do a lot of arranging of our songs on my guitar and let the others take it from there. My chops just aren't quite confident enough.

    My boy can play bass, drums, guitar, and is now learning piano. He is a musical sponge. He absorbs it all and like Bounty, he's a "quicker-picker upper". He's also only 10, so if he sticks with it, should have a promising musical career of some sort. He wants to write songs so bad it drives him nuts, but we aren't quite ready yet. He tries and I try to help him.

    I also play bass in a contemporary church service. Which lets me keep up my bass playing a couple times a week.

    Would like to be a guitar or bass player in my blues band, but then we'd have to find a drummer. Not easy to find good musicians that will hang out for little or no pay. And be committed to practicing, etc.

    But I was wondering who all here plays more than guitar.

    Guitar, piano, violin and I am starting to blow a mean harp. I mess around with a banjo, drums and others but not really that well. Just enough to have fun

    I'll play anything. I'm just better at guitar probably because I practice it most.

    I notice practicing rhythms on a plastic drum helps me with guitar rhythms. It all works together.
