Bass Guitar Drums Banjo ((4 and 5 string) Violin ( Kinda) Piano wife Harmonica I have played all theses instruments out professionally (except violin) one time or another at gigs. But. I been playing out as a full time musician since I was 18.
Guitar -- very good, especially steel string finger-picking acoustic, but I'm also a pretty good blues/BG/country/jazzer/rocker/new waver. Piano -- once good, now working overtime to get back up to snuff. Will my Chopin ever find its way home? Banjo -- whether OT, BG or playing classical tunes, just havin' fun. Fiddle/Violin -- an unbridled obsession. You'll have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
Guitar (longer than anything else and know my way around it, but for the past few years mandolin has been my primary.) Mandolin, mandola, and tenor guitar Fiddle and viola ("alto fiddle") Banjo (melodic, single-string, and quasi-Scruggs style, in that order of proficiency) Ukulele Bass guitar Piano / organ / keyboards Clarinet
… and probably a few others that have slipped my mind at the moment.
If it'll make a noise, I stand a fighting chance of at least getting a tune out of it.
Having participated in your poll, just wondering: any particular reason you're wondering?
IMO it's an excellent question. It stimulates interest. It widens the discussion. The task of ranking your various instruments by proficiency forces you to critically assess your struggles, your triumphs, your predilections and your talents .
