Default I can read music now! :-)

Back in my high school days i played drums in the band, and i learned how to read a little music...only the basics needed for drums though (i.e. what half notes, whole notes and 16th notes are...and a few paradiddles). But not till recently have i been able to read what lettering the notes are (you know...A..A flat...A sharp). But now i can!!!

Now if only i could learn to play an instrument.....lol...if it's not one thing then it's another!

I used to play a few instruments in school and could read music, way back when.

I wouldn't have a clue how to do either now. Congratulations, Now to crack, reading music and making music

btw...i have an old piano here at home....it's terribly out of tune though...which means it fits right in with my vocals I "fiddle" on it (pardon the pun) from time to time, but i really get bored with pianos. I'm a keyboard man myself....so much more you can do with a keyboard.
