Folks, that's not a figure of speech!

I play violin, mandolin, and electric violin.

Guitar, Piano and vocals here, I have so many hobbies going now and my job is starting to cut into my fun time...
Bet it would be a ball for all of us to get together for a weekend jam and magic session.
All the best

Hi, Barry. I studied the classical guitar and did many concerts as a student. Then I turned to lute playing and became the first lute player to get a degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, in London. Over the years I have learned several instruments, guitars and lutes of different periods, mainly the Baroque lute, and did postgraduate studies in Basel, Switzerland, and played professionally for a while. I still take it seriously, mostly solo music (there's a huge, fantastic, repertoire). Thanks for lending me that guitar at the Rockies. I usually take an instrument with me on long trips, if I don't have to take too many planes, as was the case this time. Andrew Goldenhersh, a fine magician and guitarist, lent me a guitar in LA. Others that quickly come to mind are Tina Lenert (harp) and Michael Close (jazz piano), and Gordon Bruce (whom I haven't had the pleasure to meet) double bass.

Rakatash- That was a kazoo? that's one of my favorite Hendrix tunes!!! I thought he did that vocally though.. butI'm probably wrong.

I'm a bluegrass musician, 5-string banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass (but not fiddle or dobro, darn it!) I've been in several bands and still emcee the Lakes Bluegrass Festival every year.

Way more of a musician than a magician, I play mainly lead guitar and lap steel, then bass, piano, drums, irish tin whistle.

My current band is a variety show of revivalist roots music, including rockabilly, jump blues, rock and roll, country, bluegrass, gymnastic buck owens type dual guitar instrumentals, hillbilly, blues, western swing and jazz. Think Joe Clay meets Wynonie Harris meets Hank Ballard Meets Billy Jack Wills Meets Joe Maphis.
A lot of fellows nowadays have a B.A., M.D., or Ph.D. Unfortunately, they don't have a J.O.B. - Fats Domino

Triangle. Just kidding. Tuba. Still kidding.

Six string accoustic fingerstyle. Not kidding.

Better magician than musician...definitely not kidding.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I've been learning violin for about eight years now, I like it a lot. I've never really composed anything. I can't say whether I'm better at magic or music. I like them both, but magic more.

I post on a different magic forum alot, because I found that before this one.

However, there seems to be a trend that whenever I've mentioned I make a bit of music now and again, loads of other folks seem to have a passion for music as well.

Any of you guys do a spot of composing or playing?
Maybe it's the creative side in us that has led us down these paths?


I took a year of "functional piano" and can pick tunes out on a keyboard (The Magnus Chord Organ is my friend) but I wouldn't really call myself a "musician."
