Who Here is a Musician?

Just out of curiosity...

Who here plays an instrument, regardless of skill or writing abilities?
I mean, talking bikes and cars is great, but music is my first love.
I play bass (main instrument, guitar, drums, violin (re-teaching myself after not playing for 7 years), and make electronic music.

I'll place a link of some of my stuff below:

Funky Bumper-My electronic music

Threat Dot Three-My actual band

I have an acoustic and electric 6 string I have not learned to play yet. The electric was a hand me down from my father who bartered some junk for it, and the acoustic was my 41st b day gift. That said, I have yet to learn to play. I also have an accordion, same story.
My wife is mainly a brass player but her primary instrument is tuba. The tuba cost more than my KLR, my Miata, and our VTR 250, but less than r KLX 250 and my VMax.
Aside from my wife, most my closest friends who are still dear to me 20 years after college are musicians. So I guess I gravitate to musicians

I've been playing for over 40 years. I currently have 5 guitars. The Gibson Les Paul is my favorite.

I don't play, but love guitar music instrumentals. I feature it in most of my videos. Just sounds right!

I play the mandolin - not great, but not terrible - American & Irish folk tunes, the Hank Williams songbook, and the usual assorted hobo tunes.

I might be a bit biased, but I was never a fan of the Les Paul neck. It's a beautifully made guitar, but I think they're a bit heavy.
I'm a bassist first, and then a guitar player. All my basses are Fender and I have two Fender Strat's and an Epiphone Wilshire.
I will say, I tend to play the Wilshire more than my Red Strat.

Believe me, I know how much Marching Band instruments can be.
I went to high school in Nazareth, PA and the amount of money the music department spent on just the upkeep of all the brass instruments was astronomical.
I played violin for many years, and I eventually bought mine out after renting it for about three years. I think it was something along the lines of $1300 for it.

Such a nice sounding instrument. It has a similar tuning to the violin if I am correct. Aren't the 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th strings Major 5th's up from the G, D, A, E of a violin?
