    I play the real guitar. I definitely have love for both Rock Band and really playing. The problem is that guitar takes a lot of practice to really progress.

    That's why I am glad I can just jam Rock Band with friends when life gets too busy.

    I just picked up an Epiphone Les Paul Standard fairly recently, so I'm excited to start learning.  Since middle school I've wanted to play guitar and I finally decided to treat myself on my birthday.  Previously though, I'm proficient with both bass recorder and alto/tenor/bass/soprano saxophone.  I was a band nerd in school.

    Yeah, i've been playing guitar for about 4 years. Sadly i've only been playing on and off though and never took anything too seriously, which means i'm still only an intermediate player.

    I've owned a guitar for 4 years but never took it seriously until about a year ago (and i still can't play it particularly well) and I got a bass about 3 months ago. I want to learn the drums eventually.

    Guitar, bass and programming. Instruments are hard to learn and I'm a lazy ass so I'm impressed I ended up being a musician.
    I think for those who lack the body coordination to play real instruments, programming music on a computer can be a lot of fun. Isn't there going to be a creation mode in the next Rock Band or Guitar Hero ?

    Guitar, Bass (i've even taken a lick at upright -- which EVERYONE should at least take a picture of themselves at least holding an upright bass, you'll at least have one really cool picture of yourself that way, especially if you're in a suit), Piano, Saxophone, Recorder (if you want to count it -- hot cross buns damnit!), and i'm slowly but surely learning drums.

    I also do music recording/programming and such, have a B.A. that says I can run a live sound board, and currently working on getting similar pieces of paper that say I can run a studio sound board and that i'm a master of ProTools.
