Good points brought to the table - not speaking the same language, yet we are able to jam together
And using instruments constructed to work within a certain key signature (b-flat, e-flat, A) - lots of woodwinds and brass are build like this - some constructed with triggers and slides to make them more versatile.
I think music appreciation is innate.
If it still fits into this discussion,
I ask the question...."Nature or nurture?"
Do you folks feel that you are natural musicians? Obviously - and I feel the same. Here is the key to the discussion:
How many hours each week do you spend playing?
I average about 7 hours a week with guitar.
Clarinet - pretty much zero practice.....and it shows when I play lately. Still sound good but I just can't play as long or as accurately.

Music saved my life and I feel like my love for all music is innate!
It's just something that I know I need like water, it's something that makes life worth while to me. Music is a language we can all understand and I love that. The common bond is just awesome to me! If I didn't have music I don't know what I would do!

Lemme tell ya - guitar and piano were so ridiculously simple after cello. Voice was especially hard : I have too big a range and an endless bag of textures and voices I can imitate making it neigh impossible to practice something consistently. Sounded like a cat dying for the first three years but now I can sustain beautiful baritone tones :) . Voice is really that special one I think everyone should get familiar with.

I probably spend a lot more time listening to recordings I would like to be able to play like than actually playing these days, would like to devote more time to both. Not sure how my downstairs neighbors feel about me hacking away on the accordion though haha. I really like the brain exercise of trying to play the same tune in different keys or on different instruments, brings out new ideas even coming back to the original instrument or setting.
Too funny I try and pick out parts of music and what types of influence is in the song. I love dissecting music shall we say! :D
Also anything someone say's I can relate it to a song. It's weird but fun! So many talented people here I :heart: it!

hardware synths are not necessary any more, get a sequencer (Ableton, Fl Studio, Logic if your on mac)
and download some soft synths! - http://www.vst4free.com/
I wouldn't count having a hardware synthesizer out completely, there is something definitely to be said about having a personal and intuitive connection with owning a hardware synth.
but you are totally right. one could own a decent keyboard controller that has assignable controller knobs and totally maximize the use of software synthesizers. there are so many options out there now as far as controllers go (especially the time saving options of automapping, etc.) and all serious music making aside, software synths are downright fun to play with just to see what kind of stuff you can come up with and allow a lot of possibilities that you normally wouldnt be able to tap into with hardware synths. and thats not even getting into the wide open space of effect routing.

I have a taylor acoustic, a epiphone electric, a yamaha acoustic-electric, and a yamaha acoustic 12-string for guitars.
My amp is a Fender Blues Jr. deluxe. I run a few pedals, but mostly my favorite a Crybaby Classic. I have a 8 hole Peruvian style ocarina.
