    Bass is my only other instrument and is actually my main instrument now since I've ended up bassing in a folk band. But I make sure I avoid Root / 5th / Root / 5th ... etc as much as possible.

    Things I've tried to learn to play apart from guitar:

    Bass.In a typical guitarist playing bass fashion, but it's useful and fun!

    Harmonica. Specifically to play Heart of Gold and So Much Wine. I'd love to learn some blues bends playing.

    Drums. I won a Roland electronic kit in a Sound On Sound Competition but eventually sold it as I didn't have the time or patience to learn much more than a 4/4 beat. I could get better results by programming them in Logic.

    Stylophone. My brother-in-law bought me one as a joke, so I had to use it in a track. The 1970s resistors that set the note frequencies were all over the shop and even Logic's auto tune plug-in couldn't quite save it.

    Charango. One of my favourite guitarists started a Bolivian folk band (he was from the Rhondda!) and started playing one of these little things and I was mesmerised by the sound. I've learnt a few chords but getting into the Latin American feel is quite hard.

  • Sax. Had lessons for years, gigged it plenty in a big band.

    Done lots of singing as a front man too. I'd be quite happy to even put the bass aside and just sing.

    As well as guitar I have played in front of people: drums (and cajon), bass and mandolin.

    I own/can play a little piano/keys, uke, melodica and I also have a Xaphoon (a sort of cross between a sax and a recorder), though I can't get much more than the odd note out of it.

    Other than guitar n bass, my only other is a didgeridoo!
    Rolf Harris taught me to play at Glastonbury in the early 90s, I used to be proud of that, not so much now.......
    Did he stand behind you, holding your Digeridoo and saying 'can you see what it is yet'?

    In my youth I was into all these bands with multi-instrumentalists so I tried to learn as many as possible, trying to compete with the guys from The Incredible String Band!

    as a result i can knock a tune out of a mandolin, fiddle, Appalachian dulcimer, epinette de pays, keyboard, whistle, all the recorders, sax and bouzouki. My main instruments remain guitar, bass, flute and synth. Despite all my attempts, I still can't play drums as well as I'd like - for some reason I can play 6/8 like falling over, but straightforward 'boom-tish' eludes me!

  • My "main" instrument (as in the one I had formal lessons on) is clarinet.  Probably the only instrument I play "properly" - the rest are all self-taught, with various degrees of blaggery.  I played clarinet and a bit of sax in classical wind band and trad jazz band for years, but now mostly play rock guitar, at least in public.

    I've gigged on clarinet, sax, guitar and bass.
    I'm fairly good on recorders.
    I've dabbled with piano/synths, mandolin, zither, ocarina, flute, theremin (oh the aching arms!), violin (because my daughter's learning it) and anything else I can get my hands on, but pretty rubbish at most of those.
    I really can't get on with brass instruments or drums (can never get arms and legs coordinated)

    I spent years playing in metal bands... Now I'm playing mainly mandolin, as well as acoustic guitar and a bit of singing in a duo. It's a lot of fun!
