Since I’ve been in IT, one of the question I keep getting asked by fellow IT people is “Do you play music?”. More often than not, the answer is “Yes”. In the last few years, the question morphed from “Do you play music?” to “What instrument do you play?”. I don’t know if it’s a company culture thing or if it’s generalized, but I want to ask the community here: do you play music, and if so, what instrument(s) do you play?
I started to play guitar when I was about 10. Albeit not a very good player, I enjoy it. I picked up harmonica two years ago, that I’m also not particularly good at, but it’s fun to annoy the dogs Last year I started learning bass, and I am steadily making progress. I own RockSmith for XBox One that I often use with my guitar and bass. It makes learning new songs fun. Fun fact: the first song I decided to learn after picking up bass was Iron Maiden’s The Trooper, instead of, say, Bob Marley’s Three Little Birds. That was a fun few months of finger pain
