I play the erhu. Ostensibly that means that I can play other instruments from the huqin family but I have never played any of the 4 stringed sihu varieties. I've also started lessons on the pipa.

I play in a post-hardcore steam punk band called The F***ing Opium War, so if we ever make it big you should buy our albums :D . The band consists of a pipe organ, piano, gong, kit drums, guitar, string bass, and erhu (that's me!). It is basically focused on exploring the sound that would have been the hardcore movement had its aural aesthetic been derived from the din of the industrial revolution and electricity had never been discovered.

That's crazy! Every other person that I know that plays the erhu is over 50. I picked it up on a family trip to San Francisco when I heard an old guy (probably 70+) playing it. I instantly fell in love.

i play piano and "percussion". By percussion, i dont mean snare, cause i forgot how to do a drum roll =)/ i play mostly mallets (xylophone, bells, stuff like that), but i sometimes get stuck with stuff like bass drum or crash cymbals (trust me, you never want to play the crash cymbals. They're boring as hell and they hurt your hand after a while).

Haha, exactly the same for me! Cymbals are actually surprisingly difficult to play well...like tambourine and triangle. I play mainly mallets and auxiliary percussion. And I play handbells too, but those don't really count...

I play the fiddle and the jaw harp. I used to be in a band, but I forgot the name of it.

After nine years, I'm still playing the trumpet on a semi-regular basis (more so when school starts up again and the university orchestra returns). I enjoy the range I've finally achieved on that little beast, but the slight pause in my playing habits this summer (trumpet being 2.5 hours away from me) will likely weaken my once-mighty powers. Such is life I suppose.

If forced, I can also fake it at piano and strum a few chords on the guitar. I've found that music really is an excellent creative outlet for an engineering major and it's cool to dabble around in some different things.

I play the oboe and trombone. I picked up the bass guitar for one year as a favor to the director of the jazz band as well.

Most of my concentration is on oboe at the moment though.
