    Question above, I personally play the guitar, and have been for the past two years or so. Recently I got more into it though, since I discovered a style that I particularly enjoy playing. 

    Here is the one I learned most recently, my favorite also

    I used to play the flute. I still know how to... only classical stuff like Mozart.

    I'm now imagining you frolicking around a landscape while playing your dubstep violin tunes...

    Sorry, after listening to the cox n crendor podcast on the dubstep didgeridoo I can't get that thought out of my head 

    Edit: Here is where that is from

    Blame people like Lindsay Sterling and others who use dubstep + violin

    Trumpet, and a bit of piano. I also completely succumbed to my inner nerd and bought a (blue) six hole ocarina a couple years back. I ended up getting a 12 hole as well, just for better range, but I haven't messed with it much. Last thing I started learning to play was The Parting Glass. That was a pretty great song, by the way, Soneca.

    I play the drums.  I have a janky electronic set, but soon as I'm able to, I want to get an acoustic set.  I had almost completed learning "Sad But True" by Metallica when I messed up my leg and I can no longer sit on the throne.  I might just have to power through the pain!

    Guitar mostly, occasionally piano.  Currently trying to learn Wrecking ball by Nick Gallant and the other inferior one by you-know-who on guitar.

    I used to play the bagpipes. Yeah, I was that guy.... Then I broke my hands and no longer have enough fine muscle control at the necessary speed.

    I can sing, though. Last song I sang was The Minstrel Boy.

    Nothing but love for the brothers (or sisters) that play the pipes. I had a roommate that did a couple of years ago. One time my other roommate and I invited him to practice behind us while we played Halo matchmaking. Mics on, of course. Yeah, we were those guys. It was epic.

    I play the tenor saxophone for six years. My favorite is Prairie Plains. At least, that's what I think it's called. It's a honor band piece and I keep forgetting the folder at school. It's a complicated piece that keeps switching between 6/8 time and 3/8 time.

    I play guitar and bass (most notably in Dreaded Silence, melodic/doom metal).  The latest songs I've been learning are Stargazer and Long Live Rock N' Roll by Rainbow, for a cover set later this year.  First time I've played bass in a while, pretty fun.

    Guitar. The most recent song I learned is Strobe by Deadmau5 (someone on YouTube was kind enough to interpret the piano/synth onto a guitar)

    I've played guitar for about 7 years, mostly play rock, grunge or ambient type stuff.
