    Who's musically talented?

    Not me! Took piano for 7 years, can't play. Got a banjo I want to learn to play - harmonica to make noise to get dogs barking.


    Who here at DC is musically talented, even just a little?!

    Bragg on yourself, how many years, if you play in a band, what kind of music (country, rock, classical...) ~ I'm sure some of you got talent. If you can play a Violin, you got my heart (my favorite instrument to listen too)!

    I started percussion in 5th grade, ending-up on the snare line for 3 years of high school and 4 years of college marching band. Also played in the normal concert bands during the same time frame.

    Drummer, Vocalist, sometimes Bass Guitarist and songwriter. Been drumming and singing for well over 40 years. Bass just a couple. No lessons, just born with ability I guess.

    Example of the group that I'm in as we played in a Veterans Day Parade. We roll along in a trailer and wail.
