there is such thing but nahh im not that good. i just started this year.
latin instruments? ummm... its mostly like acoustic guitar, trumpets, sax, bass, keyboard, and a lot of percussions lol.
here as in california, usa. and once i get older and have some good cash flowing... the first thing ima buy for my house is a nice antique harp. mostly for show but that would look so badass in my family room lol.
Ha. Do you do it professionally? (If there's such a thing?)
Haha, what kind of instruments do they use? Do you have any examples?
Lol, where is 'here'? Because that's not an extremely personal question. ;p I inherited mine from my Granddad, it's in somewhat bad shape but it does the job - a new one would be great though haha. Although I think they're rather expensive and like you said, hard to get hold of.
Nope, never even been to Asia. :/ Haha, I have a feeling I've seen that many a time in movies though. And they always give such a sinister sound... Are you able to play them?
drifting is just practice and a lot of open space...
latin music compared to eng is well... idk the same? lol. its just, well to me anyways, more lively.
and i wish i can play the harp that thing is badass. havnt seen more than like 5 in my whole life. pretty rare here.
lap mandolin is like have you ever gone into an asian spa or something? and its usually someone off to the corner plucking at what looks to be a wooden board with strings popping out? well anyways... its that lols.
Ohh wow, that looks pretty cool! How on Earth do you do that without dying? xD
Ahh fair enough. I prefer heavier stuff like hard rock and metal to listen to casually, but a lot of different songs are important or otherwise it can get pretty samey. What's latin music like compared to English? :3
Ahah, no, not even sure what one is! I can play the harp pretty well, it's not very difficult compared to the guitar, etc. You should try it out some time, I reckon it'd be right up your ally.
It's... Pretty average difficulty to play, sounds better than guitar half the time but has a lot less varying capability. I personally prefer playing the usual guitar to the mandolin, it's more interesting to play. REM use mandolins somewhat regularly, have a listen to Losing My Religion and you'll see what I mean - coincidently that's the first song I ever learnt for it, haha. Never heard of a lap mandolin though? o.o
lol well i dont work (as in a stable job) right now so that sorta gives me some time. and yes im christian.
drifting = driving sport were driver oversteers on turns making the car slide at an angle. check it on youtube. only rwd cars can perform this.
and currently im listening to nujabes (instrumental orchestra/jazz hip hop) but i usually play contemporary music and latin rock/pop. but i LOVE playing blues rock. so much 'feel' in that music i get all pumped up lol.
so you like string instruments huh? have you ever tried a charango?
when i went to Peru, i bought like 4 of those things. unfortunately i never got around to learning how to play them...
harp is a very cool disappearing instrument. i wish i can learn that.
hows the mandolin? dont see much of those around here. and ive only heard them played with folk music or some sort of irish music... ive seen Japanese people play mandolins too but the mandolins they play are like 'lap-mandolins'? idk lol. idk too much info on those things...
Ohh sweet - how do you find the time to juggle all that!? So does this make you a Christian?
Ahh right. I've never really been interested in that side of it myself, I'd prefer to play the music and get over people to produce it. :3 Sounds like you should be working on a solo album! Personally I prefer using tabs or playing by ear, but reading music is alright once you get the hang of it. I've learnt to since an early age so it's not a real hindrance any more, but it's still not as quick as using a tab. :p
Hehe, make sure you tell me when they're posted, I'd love to see you skills! And what is 'drifting'? xD
Hurmm, I play guitar and bass, ukulele and mandolin - I've never really had that much interest in straying away from the stringed family. I've been playing for 8 or so years, mainly using an electric purple Ibanez, which is worryingly the equivalent of my soul mate. :p Ermm, I play with a band semi regularly but mainly play solo... We write some of our own stuff which is mostly hard rock/metal, but I also play covers of groups like Stereophonics, Boston, Arctic Monkeys, Biffy Clyro, Muse, anything that sounds good really - so it's somewhat diverse. What type of music do you like playing/listening to?
i play guitar, bass, drums and piano. im trying to find someone to teach me sax now too. my passion/"strength" instrument are the drums. i play at my church and some other churches that invite me to go play with them.
production major ties with engineer major. trying to get the best quality/sound and just finding the rights EQs and stuff. im in my 2nd year of college so i havnt dove into my major yet. im still taking my general ed classes. i just took some music classes as in music theory/composition and piano classes just to get me started. i self taught myself bass, guitar, and drums. so i still have to learn how to "read" music. lol. i play by ear, and im quite good at it. (not trying to brag or anything but i do recognized that i have musical talent) i just started learning how to read rhythm scores this year.
i used to have some drum vids of me on youtube but i closed that account. but shortly when i get a new camera. i'll be posting new vids up as well as my drifting vids (my 2nd passion)
how about you? play any other instruments besides guitar? whats your musical background like?
