Having participated in your poll, just wondering: any particular reason you're wondering?

Banjo (Only. I don't follow directions very well.)

Lonesome Fiddler - Posted - 05/05/2019:  21:36:17


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.

Loup - Posted - 05/05/2019:  22:37:57


Fiddle pretty good. Guitar pick a tune near the nut,so I call it mediocre. Mandolin fair,pick a tune,and some chords. Blues harp,good.Obsessed with fiddle and western swing.

Cyndy - Posted - 05/06/2019:  06:36:43


Fiddle
Clawhammer banjo
Piano (rarely anymore)
Koto (forever a beginner)

JackL - Posted - 05/06/2019:  06:46:01


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.

Except for the drum kit. That still beats me.

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 .
