Sorry about that AG!heart

I don't have any brothers, sisters, or first cousins. I apparently have 2nd cousins that I haven't met.

Sorry @Ahhh Girl heart That must be really hard.

I have a brother who's 6 years younger than me. My grandfather has 12 siblings, so I have over 40 second cousins and I've met most of them.

@50yearslate  She/her ahdn_ringo_09

I have another question, since I know a few people here are musicians: Do you play any instruments?  I play piano, but I'm just average at it. And like Mal Evans, I also play the alarm clock.

I played piano for a year in 3rd grade and played clarinet for 5 years but, as I haven't so much as looked at my clarinet in over a year and all I remember how to play on piano is famous Beethoven's famous 9th symphony (a kiddie version) and some random Christmas song, the answer is no.

(oh my krishna there's not a single comma in that entire run-on sentence, I'm so sorry )

Edit: (nevermind fixed it hopefully it's more comprehensible now, PWT)

I can play a lot of instruments but none particularly amazingly well. Drums, french horn, bass, guitar, vocals, (some piano and some flute). 

Oh, I also have a didgeridoo at home (how Australian can you getpaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif)

  Yes, yes I do *points to signature which is not an exhaustive list but representative* I'm not very good on drums though.

Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

1. I'm an only child. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

2. I play guitar (both acoustic and electric, preferably rhythm, but I can play a few small riffs), piano/keyboards (mostly self taught stuff by ear that I've learnt in recent months) and I've had a couple of gos at bass before, but don't play it regularly. I'd be interested in learning drums and (like I said on the 9 facts thread) steel pedal guitar.

I mainly play guitar but can also play bass, drums, and piano. I can also sing but it sounds terrible.

Officially it's 'jif' but I say 'gif'

That is, if we're referring to a moving image. If we're referring to the cleaning product brand, it's 'jif'
