    Used to play it back in the later years of primary school before my teenage self saw it as ghey and stopped. Now i'm a bit older and more mature I can really see the beauty in it again though and highly considering getting some tutoring.

    Anyone play/played?

    Used to play when I was a kid, but only for about six months. Got tired of having to learn just to be fitted into an orchestra thing, I wanted to play just to play, you know?

    Always wanted to pick it up again on my own, I think learning to play different instruments is a good, healthy way of expanding your consciousness and all that, keeps the mind fresh and on its toes like.

    couldn't agree more mate.

    Can see it being a hell of a long road, especially considering I can't read music. Should be fun though and a hell of a reward when i'm at a level i'm happy with!

    Me neither. I thought it would be romantic if I played for my ex. It wasn't.
