The Musical Talent of Sharenator

I am a huge music person and big supporter of people learning musical instruments. I think it's a great way express yourself. It can show your happiness or anger. For those who don't play because they don't think they will be good enough, you are good enough. If you have the true desire to play, you will be able to play. I am not going to lie to you, though. It is hard and frustrating at times but when you play something that makes you smile, the feeling is so unbelievable. And don't be afraid if how you want to play is not normal to others play. The beautiful thing about musical instruments is that there are no rules. There is music theory, theory not law. Here is a great example. This man, Paul Gilbert plays his guitar how what he wants. If he wants to shred and only use three strings he does.

If he wants to cover cheesy, old songs by pop artist, he does. He doesn't care because it's what he wants to do.

So, if you would, share what instrument you play or, if you don't play an instrument, what instrument you would like to play. If you have videos of you playing, please post them. I would love to see them! :)

Also I would be hypocrite if I didn't post something about what I play! :)

    I play piano though I cant read music to save my life.

    Neither could the Beatles

    Alot of musicians can't and that's ok. The important thing is that you are playing.
    - Legacy November 26, 2011, 11:51 pm
    I can read music, but I'm not the best at it and i prefer not to have it.

    Often i will put it there for reference, if I forget a part, but I don't always follow it (bad idea)

    This is me, I recorded this for my son.

    This is my wife, I added the music in, synced it, cleaned it up a bit, and the background vocals are me.

    I don't claim to be a rockstar, but it shouldn't make your ears bleed. :)

    Nice! Thank you for posting. Both of you have great voices. I really like your voice. It is very unique. With the right background music it would be so badass.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 12:37 pm
    loved your wife! tell her i think she has a lovely voice XD
    you do too
    it was very nice.. more! lol
    - MissRandom November 27, 2011, 2:12 pm
    Thank you for saying so, I don't think you'll see anymore of my wife on here, lol. Kinda had to be sneaky just to get that one lol. She was walking by the computer and I handed her the mic and said here, sing this lol. Then she went to work and I put it all together lol.
    She's the real singing talent though, not I lol. Not that it ever stops me, I love to sing!

    I'm glad you think so :D
    I don't think I'm that great, I could be if I had the time or willpower to practice, but Skyrim is kinda making everything take a back seat lately lol.
    - godsgift November 28, 2011, 11:04 pm
    I wanna get Skyrim but I know it would fuck everything up. Skyrim: The number one killer of grades.

    Ukulele! That's awesome! Well keep it up. I'm sure with more time spent with it, you get better.

    I play guitar quite well, but any recording I do is sub-par to what I want. When I get a good one, you'll be seeing it.

    Yeah. Thats how feel when I record. I think its the nervousness of knowing if you mess up, you have to start over.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 3:13 am
    Well I've gotten past that kind of nervousness, but it just seems like everything sounds better as you're playing rather than listening.
    - iGreenDay November 27, 2011, 12:10 pm
    That's how I feel too. For me its being a self-hypercritical musician.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 12:44 pm
    Exactly. It's pretty sad.
    - iGreenDay November 27, 2011, 2:01 pm
    It's part of being a musician. It sucks at points but it makes us better.

    percussionist here and i can read music which is becoming a rare trait in percussionist of this generation

    That's awesome! I can't fathom how percussion music notation is written down. Unless it's percussion as in piano. But still, reading music is a skill that I wish to learn. But getting college mastered is first on my list.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 3:15 am
    yeh its weird at first but if you can read rhythms you're set percussion isn't hard its just the crazy rhythms at crazy fast or slow tempos which make it seem hard

    I played "keyboard" for 4 years (crap version of piano - its classed as its own instrument in the UK).
    Now I am learning to play proper piano :)

    I also had a go at a harmonica last night and love it :)
    I also had a play on my friends accordion, its difficult but I could probably pick it up well.

    I can read music but I prefer not to. I usually have it for reference or to learn a song.

    Piano+accordion+harmonica=badass one man show.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 12:30 pm
    If only I had enough hands to play all of them at once

    I've played the guitar since i was 7 but i'm still not really that brilliant at it. Also, i have to read tab, i've never managed to understand sheet music.

    I wish I started at 7. But starting at 17 felt like I truly desired to play.

    Same here. Tab is easy

    When I look at sheet music

    I can't play anything yet, but I can sing really well (so I'm told). :D

    Every band needs a good singer. I honestly thing singing well is the hardest thing to do musically. Props, man!

    I love to play guitar (3 yrs). Mainly, neoclassical stuff like Jason Becker and Marty Friedman(Cacophony era) . I can read music,but prefer by tabs. Love the fact that you posted Paul Gilbert.

    Neoclassical has never been my thing to play but still great to listen to. I think it's awesome that you said neoclassical and didn't mention Yngwie Malmsteen. Sometimes it seems like people think he is the only one who plays neoclassical.

    Paul Gilbert is one of my top 3 favorite players.
    1)Steve Vai
    2)Paul Gilbert
    3)Joe Satriani
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 12:41 pm
    Malmsteen is probably the biggest name in neoclassical genre, but I don't really enjoy his music.

    My top players include:
    1. Marty Friedman
    2. Jason Becker
    3. Syu
    4.Gentaro Satomura
    5. Dave Mustaine
    - DirtyChain November 27, 2011, 1:21 pm
    Dave Mustaine is a badass. I mean how can you get kicked out of Metallica for being too crazy? BAMF for sure.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 2:10 pm

    Gotta love Megadeth and Metallica.

    sisters getting a guitar for christmas, and we both tried it today for a bit. she's pritty good...i'm complete sh*t
    but we'll get there :P

    Yup. Just keep up with it. You'll get there. (I try not to say practice. It makes it seem like its work and not for fun.)
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 2:08 pm
    yer, i'm only doin it for fun, not taking lessons or anythin like that, but i know there will be a lot of practise and frustration at first, but once i get sorta good it'll get better ;)
    - Fail4424 November 27, 2011, 6:05 pm
    Oh for sure! Once you get to the point where you can literally pick up the guitar and improvise a good sounding song, you will love playing so much and you never want to stop! Keep at it! :)
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 7:15 pm
    thanks man ;)
    you play anything?
    - Fail4424 November 27, 2011, 7:17 pm
    Yes I do. I play the guitar. The third video from the top is me. The one with the green guitar.

    I play the saxophone. I especially love playing the tenor in jazz ensembles. I own both a tenor and an alto but I love my tenor because it is a big, black, air-brushed (so it isn't shiny) hunk of awesome.

    Something fun I do while at home is go out on my front porch and play the lowest note I can possible do so. Half a mile down the road from my house is a guy who raises mules and they bray like crazy thinking that I am another mule. I would post a pic of my sax, but I am at school and won't be going home for a while.

    lol Musical trolling.

    Used to play the violin, though I haven't touched the thing for a couple of years.

    You try to play it again. The violin is beautiful instrument.
    - Legacy November 27, 2011, 8:17 pm
    It is the problem is that at the time I didn't find any interesting music to play and i read sheet music, om nit able to play by ear.
