Of the instruments I play I'm the best on, and focus on playing the most, sax. I also pretend to play keyboards.

I play drums, Synth, keys, and very little guitar. But my main instrument is definitely my drum set.

I took drum lessons too when I started playing music and while Im definitely no rythm shark, those lessons gave me a good basic understanding of the technique behind playing drums. I think all musicians could benefit from a few drum lessons.

Drummer at heart and always will be.
I hope one day (sooner rather then later) to have the money/space for a drum set.
Used to just play on my schools....

Since I've been out of HS I like to BS on and off with guitar. Not very good.
Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer and Testament. The real Big Four of thrash metal!

Drums...only drums.  Strings are confusing. Confused But hey, not complaining, they still get me paid (to a certain extent).

I play bass and have done so for 17 years. I've played guitar for 15 years, but only for the purpose of writing music! Inspired by John Paul Jones, I took up the mandolin about 7 years ago but I'm past the stage of my life where I have time to spend practicing for hours a day...
Neither of these things is half as much fun as playing the bass though, that's my first love!

I think I'll start a bit of guitar, only because it's a good instrument for writing songs like boysmithers said.

I've played guitar for a couple years, I played alto sax a few years ago, but then quit. However I am going to get a tenor sax soon, and I might learn a little piano

Bass player.  Not totally passionate about it because there's no one to play with that shares my tastes.  Though on a certain Facebook group, we're planning a collaborative metal album that I offered to play bass (and maybe try black metal vox Tongue) for.

Drums. 

While I often dream about picking up the guitar, I know my true passion lies with drums.

I only play guitar. Never had a lesson. I can play some Slayer, Bolt Thrower, Carcass, Anthrax, Annihilator, etc etc. So I'm happy about it. Want to practice some more and start a band if I had the time. I had to refuse to start a band with friends because of my study...
But I play guitar for 7 or 8 years now.
