I play the piano, I learn classical music by sheet music and the rest by ear and sometimes Youtube videos. I really enjoy playing You Never Give Me Your Money on the piano as well as the medleys in Abbey Road.
I am starting to play the acoustic guitar but I am having trouble doing the rhythm as John plays it. He has a 3/4th scaled guitar which makes it easier to play the barred chords, I don't have long fingers =.
Just as an aside, Paul Simon is recognized as quite an accomplished acoustic guitar player (I'd say easily better than George, Paul or John), and yet if you ever look closely at photos, you'll see he plays a big guitar and he has short fat pudgy fingers. It's amazing how he can finesse those strings so well.

I was talking about the 6's with the guitar, John stretches his pinky to play the 6th of the chord. You need a long finger to do it.
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

When I was about 6 or 7 I wanted to learn to play piano, but my mom said I first had to learn how to play the recorder, because that was a very basic instrument and was good to learn music and all. I really hated it and never practised. I also can't read music anymore.
I still want to learn the piano, but I don't have access to one (never really had the money or the space to buy one). I always enjoyed playing it for music class though (in music class we always had to play songs on piano for a mark.) and I was pretty good at it. I picked up songs very easily. I have VERY small hands though (as in: I know 6 year olds with bigger hands) , so I can't even play an octave with one hand. I still want to buy a keyboard.
I suck at guitar. We have 2 guitars at home, because my mom used to play it. Also once during music class we also had to play some song on guitar (can't remember which song, it's soooo long ago) and I just sucked. I couldn't switch chords fast enough and it hurt my poor little fingers lol. The only thing I can play is the riff from ''Smoke on the water''. Yeah, the guitar is not for me.
I've never touched a drumkit, but I'd like to. I don't know why, but I think I'll like it.
Once during my recorder lessons we got the oppertunity to play some instrument you had to blow in, but I can't remember whether it was a sax or a tuba or whatever. Anyway, when I tried it I blew so hard yet there wasn't a sound coming out so I knew that wasn't for me either.
