What other instruments do you rinse apart from the decks?

I'm not 100% sure whether decks are classed as instrument in that sense but i couldn't really think of any other way to phrase my question.

Personally I've been playing:

Guitar for 3 years, totally self taught
Drums for 2 years, had a few lessons but mostly self taught
Keyboards & piano for 2 years, totally self taught


An i've been mixing about 6 months now

I'm also a fairly dab hand at the didgeridoo :rambo:

played guitar for about 13 years now. pretty handy on the bass as a result of that....
know my way around a keyboard. can kinda sing/used to do some screaming in my old band too....

this is what i used to do
www.myspace.com/threemovements - check out metropolis. but it's all goodness.

and this is what i was doing until i left them about a year ago. they're waiting to release an album about now.
www.myspace.com/eaststrikewestband

anybody likes what they hear i can send some other tracks over from 3m.

Niiice, blues/jazz/shred/funk? or do you do abit of everything?
kind a bit of everything really, grew up learning songs through my guitar teacher - everything from beatles to metallica, to country to finger picking tings.
then went through some grades when i was older, got up to about grade 6/7ish.

but after about 17/18 i was just writing my own stuff, bit hard to pin down the style really.

i can play the soft synth.... with my mouse :)

na i can play keyboard to an extent, but since my old computer broke, im using my mums pc and i cant plug my midi keyboard into it so i draw everything in nowdays

i still play keyboard a bit though, i got a couple of old yamaha keyboards that i write stuff on, then when ive written it i'll draw it into the piano roll in FL

i dabble with the guitar but its not really for me... hurts my fingers to much lol

i can do a bit of turntablism too, dont practice much anymore tho

As I live on my own I can do what I please... So I rinse out some pots and pans... Sometimes, they fall on the floor and they sound like a current value record...

So I am playing some instruments... Right?...


I am not helping that much with this thread... Where's the exit?...

I cant play any instruments but i rinse out in the studio behind the console. I cant play music but i can record it, mix it and make it sound 10 times better for the artist who made it. Im more of the engineering type.

Learned to play violin and clarinet when I was a kid and can read music because of this.
Played bagpipes in a scottish marching band for years, also learned to tenor drum (I can still do all the spins and flourishes with the drumsticks) and the solo snare drum while in that band.
Been playing a full drum kit for a few years. Taught myself music theory (if you produce music, I seriously advise you to pick up a book on music theory, makes it a whole lot easier).

Play the guitar, used to be pretty good, kinda blues based style, played in a few bands... Still got the old "axe" but don't really pick it up too often anymore, my playings a bit scrappy these days, mind you it always was, that was my 'style'!
