sooo NS im thinking about taking up a new instument. what do you guys/girls think i should play? preferably something relatively easy to get the basics down, relatively cheap and something not that many people can do -> not guitar too many people play it. not drums cause i used to play them any other suggestions welcome.
I dont freestyle 'cause my style aint free!
When life brings trouble you can fight or run away
Piano. definitely because you can just buy a keyboard and then once you learn how to read music you can teach yourself from there.
"Well I was over In Australia during Easter which was interesting... Interesting to know they celebrate the Holiday the same way we do: By commemorating the Death and resurrection of jesus by telling our children that a giant BUNNY RABBIT left them chocolate eggs in the night. Now... I wonder why we are fucked up as a race... " Bill Hicks
Trust me, rock the piano, I have been drumming for the past 6 years, and I have recently picked up piano because I actually wanted to learn more about reading and whatnot, and now I wish that I would have taken it earlier.
STEEL DRUMS, i looked into them, they do take effort

go to home depot, get 4 different sized buckets. get drumsticks. go to next sporting ecent and sit outside and just screw around and make it sound like you almost know what your doing. my friend and i made 30 bucks on night. ( many people were drunk after and for some reason they really liked us.)
You could start playing synth, but if you ever want to record anything you'll be stepping into something far much more time consuming than just a hobby - electronic music is fairly complex from a technology and knowledge standpoint. Keyboard are tons of fun though, microkorgs are $400 and you can make crazy sounds on them.
Bass guitar is always a good one - not toooo tough to have fun with, and your sense of timing from drums will help you. Might be a good stepping stone.
Or learn to sing! I've always wanted to take singing lessons, such a good skill to have.
