Hello :)
I've been in a band once, and we've been in a battle of the band also once :) I'm a guitar player and lead guitarist, we are 6 in a band, 2 singers, 3 guitarists and 1 drummer. Its just a temporary band, I don't know how and why we created that band, btw, our band name is "MilkyWayz" (kinda funny isn't it? ) We decided to participate just once in a battle of the band, but it didn't go well XD We were so very nervous even me, I can't play well in front of so many people watching us and listening to us I felt uneasy that time. We knew all along that we will get the last ranking, but its just for experience :) we want to feel how the other bands that we like feels. After 2 years, we decided to stop the band because we're gonna go to college and we won't see each other again. Those experience I had was really important to me, because of those experiences, I've become who I am today :) 
I really treasure those moments. :)

I've never played anything, I like listening others play especially drums and eletric guitar.

hi, first i would like to thank British council for this great opportunity to practice English. About playing musical instruments, personally, i have never play or being in a band, but i m really fond of music specially romantic one, when was child, i used to sing for Ceilin Dion and some others, and as i m Arabic,i  recently  practice belly dance.

I play a little bit in guitar,i just know the basic chords,I learned a little bit in guitar in church,for i used to sing as a praise and worship leader during the sunday service,its fun to play guitar.,
Carolina and Jamie are funny, I enjoy listening their conversations, thank you very much with these,God bless you.
