I see we have a lot of musicians who frequent this forum. A whole lotta guitarists, many drummers, etc.

I admit that I do not play any instrument (except for air guitar!!). I used to play saxophone in junior hight school but gave it up after dealing with obnoxious and unsupportive teachers.

Maybe some day I'd want to learn a few chords on either guitar or piano but until that day, I admit to being a non-musician.

Who else admits their musical non talent??

Robert Fripp admits to being a tone death no talent guitarist

Hasn't stopped him.

He may not have perfect pitch or natural talent

but he can sure wail on the getbox

LOL I definitely fall into the non-talented group.

I played clarinet in the school band from 6th to 9th grade. At that point
I had to decide between basketball and band. Basketball won out. No contest.
I was good at basketball. Not so good with band. It was especially hard marching,
keeping the line straight and playing clarinet! LOL

I play, but here lately, my chops have rusted to the ground. I lack improvisational skills, unless it's 1-4-5 walking blues. I can make that up on the fly.

Well, that's a bummer, girlfriend!!

What gets me is that folks will spend hours playing Guitar Hero yet won't take the time to learn an actual real musical instrument.

I play guitar and piano but i have no musical talent. Dogs howl when I sing, and most requested song people ask me to sing is "Far, Far Away"

R.L. Burnside once told me he had one non-musical son that couldn't 'make a tune if he farted in a bucket'. That applies to me also.

That's what I've heard. You're pretty damn good yourself, Lefty, even though you hold the guitar upside down.


ROTFLMAO.....

At least no one asks to borrow his guitar And he can play right handed too
