    And what motivates you to keep going?

    As a kid i was classically trained in piano from the time i was 6. I picked up violin when i was 10 or so. And did orchestra for 8 years. I also played guitar, drums, Japanese Koto, harmonica etc.

    I went through different phases. I grew up learning classical like Liszt, Bach, Mozart, Wagner, Handel etc.

    Then i went through my metal phase. Played a lot of Megadeth, Rage Against The Machine, Cannibal Corpse, Zeppelin etc.

    Then finally i went through my blues phase. Doing a lot of Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker etc.

    My instruments just changed with what i was listening too. Nowadays i find it harder to stay motivated when learning. I'm trying to improve on bass right now... but i am losing focus and i don't know why.

    How many instruments have y'all learned to play? what keeps you motivated to do them?

    After I learned how to play the skin flute I lost all interest in the other musical instruments.

    Skin flutes get lumpy though like oatmeal. Most other instruments stay hard 24/7 icon_lol.gif

    I stay motivated for varying reasons - if I busque its because people appreciate it and I can get about min wage for it. But mostly the conjugation

    I can play the pipe organ and piano, although the two are very different instruments, despite the fact they both feature keys.

    Once you get to a certain standard, you just keep going.
