I started with piano lessons at age 8 or 9, moved on to guitar and bass, played drums in high school band and bass and drums in jazz band, bass in college band, and have been in several bands. I haven't actively written any music in a long while, but I have a back catalog of songs that I would love to get recorded, just for posterity. One of my former band mates has a studio, and when I have the time, I'm going to get together with him to get it all down.
The only musical instrument I ever played was the clarinet in middle school. After that, nothing... Would've continued playing in high school, but the damned thing was messing up my teeth (don't ask)(yes, I was playing it correctly). So I quit.
