Guitar for about nine years, bass more actively for four years and drums actively for a year and a half or something. I've also got a keyboard but I don't really play it.

I've never really practiced anything, just played what I'm able to, so my development hasn't been too fast. If you like you can check out some of my instrumental tracks from the link under that green thing in my signature, I play all four of my instruments there.

I've been playing bass for almost 9 years, though at times it may not show. LOL

I purchased an electronic drum set in December, but left it at my parent's house while I finish my last few months university.  Though I only have about 1.5 days experience on that kit, I've been playing my practice pad for about 4 months. LOL

Electric guitar, for about 1.5 - 2 years with big pause gaps. Still learning though.

Guitar for 3 years or so and bass for half a year. 
I also try to play harmonica a bit and I'm able to make sounds out of children's toys.

Ive played guitar for about 20 years. Took leasons for the first two, but Im mostly self-taught. I never had much talent for playing but Ive composed from day one. I used to play in a death/ doom metal act called Last Abide ( http://www.myspace.com/lastabide), but we disbanded many years ago. Creative differences and that sort of thing. Besides that we simply werent good enough on our instruments at the time to get anywhere. Its quite nostalgic to listen to those samples now and again though. For the last 10 years or so Ive been working with a friend of mine who plays the synth on a progressive rock project. We might release something someday. You know when there are two mondays in a weekBig smile. When my kids grow older and Ill have more time to practice again I might start up a metal project again, but playing most types of metal that I enjoy takes hours of practice every day to learn how to play, so thats a project for the future when I have more time.

Piano and Guitar, mainly, but I try to pick up other things now and then. My first instrument was the accordion and I have had a little experience with Tenor Sax, Marimba and Violin. I'm currently teaching myself the Clarinet.

I'm a vocalist (the human voice is an instrument if one wishes to make it so) Have been singing (specifically to progress vocal ability not 'just because I could') for 11 years. Started at 7 still going strong on my journey at 18. Now embarking on prog and jazz vocals, quite testing actually.

I've had a guitar/bass for more than two years, but only started taking it seriously three or four months ago.  I have a drum set too.

I'm self-taught.

I play a few instruments. I am not notably fantastic at any of them, but I play them well enough to my pleasure nonetheless. A rundown:

-Harmonica (first instrument)
-Guitar/Bass (more so guitar)
-Drums
-Timpani
-Xylophone
-Alto and Tenor Sax (prefer tenor)
-Clarinet (beginner / average, but hopefully I can buy a decent clarinet soon)
-Piano (beginner, I'm still learning)

Pseudo-instruments:

-Programming music
-Vocal (Scream/Growl/Sing...but I generally dont do much of the first 2)
-Recorder (if that counts LMAO)

Primarily I stick to guitar or the tenor sax. I am trying to learn violin, which I took lessons for in grade school briefly.

Been playing guitar for five years, heading on six in a few months. I guess I can play some basic bass too.

I used to play the piano but I quit in fourth grade after moving on to a rather boring teacher and environment after moving to the States from Korea. I think I had talent and I wish I could have nurtured my potential for playing the piano Unhappy.
