Started to learn how to play guitar but realized soon that was not for me. Don't have the makings to be an artist so I have to study hard to make a good living as an ordinary person.

Hi,
I liked the idea. I also play guitar, bass and guitar.
I'm starting in english and would like you to evaluate my english, not my voice :P
To give a different touch, I put a reverb on the guitar.

Sergio,

Please consider the following rewrite, and let me know if you understand why I made the changes. Also please feel free to ask any questions and I will attempt to answer them.

"I like the question, and to answer it I play guitar both bass and acoustic, with a reverb unit to add a different touch.
I am just starting to study English, and would like you to evaluate my English, not my voice."
:P

Due to my total lack of rhythm and the fact that I am tone deaf, I would not even consider embarassing myself with any attempt to play a musical instrument. On a related subject, on the rare occassion that I attempt to sing a hymn in church, along with everyone else, they stop singing and stare at me in shock. :lol: If I sing a lullaby to a baby she starts crying. :lol: :lol: When I sing in the shower the water quits running. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I can't carry a tune in a bushel basket.

Lucas,

I have one very minor suggestion, the first word in any sentence must be capitalized. I think that you made a typo in not capitalizing Yes. Otherwise excellent construction and choice of words.

Harmonica and a Cassio keyboard here.

I play the violin...or I used to :(
it's been a while since I haven't got the chance to get a violin to do some practice.

Gabi,

If I may I would like to make a couple of suggestions, please check out this rewrite, and see if you agree.

"I play the violin, or at least I used to, because it's been a while since I've had a chance to get a violin and practice.

I play acoustic guitar for 30 years and I am as virtuoso as someone who has just started to play. I considered myself a genius for being able to have so little improvement in so many years. I played 5-string banjo for a couple of months and harmonica... and reco-reco, I'm really good at it.

My voice is amazing! I got started in show business having my voice sampled to play a part as a small dinosaur in "Jurassic Park". I'm very proud of it.

All in all, I love music, Norman Gimbel and Charles Fox, in a song sang by Jim Croce, put in words my romance with music:

Like the whipoorwill and the baby's cry, I got a song.
And I carry it with me and I sing it loud,
If it gets me nowhere I'll go there proud.

[quote="Dude Spell"]I play acoustic guitar for 30 years and ...

Dude,

I would like to make one suggestion to your post as written below. Please let me know what you think.

I have played acoustic ...

Other than this very minor error in tense, a very well written post.

Folks,

I used to play the trumpet in church when I was about twelve, but after one year learning how to play it, I realized was not good at it. However, listening to someone playing well the trumpet is amazing, as we can see on YouTube a dude called Fernando López playing "You Raise Me Up", it is amusing.

I would like to play the piano, but it would not be possible in a near future. For now, I just have time to enjoy other dudes playing it.

See you!

Rafael,

Only one minor suggestion, let me know what you think, etc.

Yes, I play the bass.

Bill,

When I write "...I realized that I...", it seems that I am using plenty of "I", maybe it is a silly thought. Please, tell me something about that. Any way, thanks for your correction, from now on I will write this kind of sentence like you did. ;)

Thanks a lot, Bill! No matter how slow I write, I (still !) can't avoid the basic mistakes. The same construction works in portuguese too, and that makes things easier for me:

Eu tenho tocado violão por 30 anos.

Bacca
I play the acoustic guitar.

Baah.ib
I'm learn play the acoustic guitar. I know something, but I have to deepen more.

Claiene
No, I don't . But I love violin and one day I will to learn.

Claiene escreveu:No, I don't . But I love violin and one day I will to learn.
Claiene,

There is only one minor suggestion that I have for your post, you do not need the "to" before learn in this case.
Otherwise very nicely done.

RENNY
I can play Clarinet but not so well, I just can get by.

Renny,

Welcome to the forums.

I think your post would be better if you used "very" instead of "so" for the following reasons, "very" is more discriptive, and "so" is overused too much by students of English as a second language.

If you have any questions please let me know. I hope that I can assist you in your studies of English.

r_vertuan
no, I don't play instruments, however, if i could choose a talent, certainly would be play guitar and sing like a pop star. It must be amazing.

Viny
No I don't, but I'd like to learn guitar. Maybe someday I'll lol

Alex.moura
Yes, I play guitar, bass, keyboard and drums. I have been studying musical instruments since I was ten, and certainly I need to learn a lot yet.

Digao

americandrummer
