    Cool, enjoyed your video!

    I play a little fiddle, here's a video from last spring, one of my favourite tunes written by a local musician.

    I am a bad person and almost never play, this was my first time playing in nearly a year here so I am a bit rusty and have cold fingers, but it is what it is!

    It's on facebook so I can't seem to embed it, that's lame.

    I've played piano for quite some time (the past...17 years, maybe?), and while I can't say I'm good...I enjoy it. A lot.

    This is one of my favorite songs to play, especially when I'm stressed.

    As an aspiring fiddler (hahah, I suck) that was awesome.

    I love to play "Hey Jude" on guitar. It's the first song I learned to play and it's calming to just play and sing it. On piano I make stuff up because I'm not any good lol. One of my favorite piano pieces to listen to though is called "Kiss the Rain" by Yiruma.

    As far as singing, it just depends. Like singing a lot of things. :)

    I have an ocarina around here somewhere. I think they are very hard to play, if you can get a song like that I am most impressed Dekka. I have a little one, and it's just impossible. I gave up fast on the larger one too.

    I like knowing a song like a friend, one you can pull out of your mind any ol time you want to. I think it's neat learning what other members here have as their favorite to play or sing.

    I played worried man blues when I was 7 and I still play it when i am 50 and it still makes me smile Never cared for the faster "peppy" version.

    Dixie's Mom, Hey Jude was always my Mother's favorite and one of her songs to play on the organ. Great minds think a like.;)
