Wish I had. Played trumpet and string bass in school. Still play bass. I often see where piano would be useful to show things to the other guys in the band.

Piano's for wussies...try something challenging like flute or clarinet.

I did both piano and clarinet when I was younger. I kinda wish I had stuck with both of them for longer than I did.

I did take some piano lessons, not many. . . one summer school's worth of group lessons.

I did take a year's worth of lessons on cornet and a couple years of finger style guitar on just about the worst instrument to be associated with the name guitar. It should have been called a "discourager." It never, ever played in tune.

As an adult, I've taken fiddle lessons, but guitar is my main instrument and I'm mostly self-taught (or jam-taught) 'cause I'd pretty much forgotten whatever I learned in my lessons. . . I had to look up G, C & D major cords, for crying out loud!

Hated to practice; mom wouldn't let me quit. Then one day mom was gone and coincidentally, the piano never play as loud after that.

When I was 10 I was really interested and I ended up taking them from the Wicked Witch of the East. A bad teacher can really turn you off on something you thought you would love.
